    Swabian House, the rediscovered beauty of authenticity

    When the passion for restoring and for harnessing the value of what is authentic and antique meets the the more than a century old legacy left over the years by the former Swabians, then everything can turn into an absolutely unique experience. The "Swabian House" or "Schwabenhaus" is a place you should not miss if you arrive in the west of the country. Either because you want to make a stop for resting your mind but also to indulge your soul, or because you want to taste some of the dishes for which the people of Timisoara come here regularly, or even just to see what an old Swabian building looks like. Moreover, when it comes to a house restored with great care and skill and happily enriched with collections of art and handcraft objects, which today turn it into a small museum with so many interesting things to see. The property is located in ?andra, in the middle of the Banat Plain, 34 km from Timi?oara, 32 km from the border with Serbia and 36 km from the border with Hungary. ?andra has been first time documented in 1833 under the name of Alexandria after the bishop of Zagreb who owned large areas of land here. The bishop is the one who signed the agreement by which a number of 140 families, no less than 700 German settlers remained here and practically established the settlement that would bear his name.

    Today, "Schwabenhaus" practically refers to a land with an area of 4,316 square meters with completely renovated old buildings which received a new life becoming a tourist destination. New amenities, which offer all the comfort and facilities you can think of are waiting here. Thus, immediately upon entering the courtyard we find the main building, which offers 9 rooms and a large space in the attic where conferences or events can be organized. Also, here, in the salon that marks the main entrance, there is probably one of the largest collections of cuckoo clocks in Europe, with extremely valuable samples. Next to it, we find a restaurant on two levels, arranged in accordance with the spirit of the place, maintaining its charm, and enriched with valuable and charming collections of musical objects and handicrafts products. The beautifully arranged courtyard leads us to the third building, which has a mixed function. Most part of the ground floor comprises a bar that immediately invites you to enjoy a pint of house beer, either in the classic Bavarian interior or on the romantic terrace overlooking the inner courtyard. Apart from this, in the same building, there are 5 bedrooms, and an administrative area, with an office, a laundry room and a technical room.

    The last building is newly built, but it integrates perfectly into the landscape, being designed after the plans of the former Swabian huts. The building has a wine cellar on the ground floor and an open terrace upstairs with a beautiful view of the entire complex. The courtyard is landscaped with stone, plants and shrubs, and you can notice the great attention and the care to the smallest details and the passion for perfection.

    The ultimate place to relax will of course be the swimming pool, located in the sunny area of the courtyard and with easy access to the bar, but also to the accommodation areas.

    “Schwabenhaus” means a place where nothing has been left to chance, where the so-called German rigor can be seen in every detail of the property, starting from the quality of the renovation to the particulars of the decoration. It is a place where history seeks a new beginning.
