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 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 have another homestay, The Magic Cottage, near Praid, in the stunning Salt Valley of Harghita County, Transylvania, Romania. 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.
