LONDON, Sep 17 (Reuters) Britain's Prince Charles is set to be a landowner in Transylvania -- but he has no plans to move to the home of ''Dracula''.

The heir to the throne is looking to buy a property in the region to promote sustainable tourism, a spokesman for Charles said today.

His proposed purchase, a ruined farmhouse in the village of Viscri, would be restored and could be rented out to tourists, the spokesman said.

Charles is the patron of the Mihai Eminescu Trust which seeks to restore the cultural heritage and economy of the villages in Transylvania.

The Romanian region is famed as birthplace of Vlad The Impaler, inspiration for Bram Stoker's ''Dracula''.
