We: two People and one little dog were the second time in Vale and first time in Casa Nicu. It is the perfect place for a relaxing week in the Carpathians. The lovingly restored, perfectly equipped and very clean old cottage is a cozy home on time. From here you can go in all directions hikes and do excursions. In the warm October light we walked through the beautiful colors of the autumnal Carpathian mountainsides. We visited historical churche castles or the lively cultural capital of Europe Sibiu and after long eventful days was time to relax by the crackling fire of the tiled stove.
From the booking to the arrival in the already pre-heated accommodation until the farewell, the owner team cared for us very well. Thank you very much Werner and Nicu. We'll come back again...
The place was very cozy, warm and tidy. A spectacular old tile stove was warming the place. Very nice indeed. A very nice place for a stay of a few days in this nice carpatian village. Will be returning with friends to enjoy spring or summer.
This is a quaint, cozy cottage perfectly sized for two. We celebrated our anniversary with a trip to Romania and Casa Vale is the perfect base. Whether interested in culture, handicrafts, rural living, history or hiking everything is within reach. Even in the middle of winter we found plenty to see and enjoy, from inexpensive local food to quaint villages and bustling, though charming, cities (Sibiu, even Sighisoara is within reach).
We stayed in Casa Nicu for a week - and had a great time. The apartment is perfect for 2 people and there's real attention to detail which we were constantly struck by - condiments, washing detergent etc. It's a great base for the Transalpina which we drove a couple of times as well as lots of other villages, lakes etc. We ate food cooked by a local lady for a couple of dinners which were delicious hearty Romanian food. Werner was a great host with lots of tips - he was really helpful when I was planning the trip and then when we were there. It's worth noting that the table outside is for the priority use of Casa Nicu but because it's the only place to sit, it's likely that you will be sharing it with your neighbours. Highly recommended - which we have been to friends.
We found a very clean and nice house with a modern kitchen and all the things you need in a usual household. The landlord was very friendly, helped a lot with some things and we got very quickly through with any question.
It is a great spot to start some nice hikes. Around are lots of medieval castles and beautiful 'saxon' villages. We had a great time there and we will come back one day.
