Hello, my name is Rosie and I live between India and Transylvania, Romania. I have a long connection with India as my ancestor, Lord Cornwallis, was Governor General of India twice (his picture hangs in the house) and my mother's family were involved in the tea and jute business in Assam. I am an antique dealer specializing in unique decorative treasures from in and around Rajasthan. I spend my summers in Transylvania, Romania, where I have another homestay, The Magic Cottage, near Praid, in the stunning Salt Valley of Harghita County. The Magic Cottage is open all year round. I love both the bustling and colourful Udaipur and the magical and very tranquil Transylvania and I am sure that you will too. I very much look forward to being your hostess in one of these unique and beautiful destinations.
