“Almost like being in a fairytale ”
Reviewed 27 April 2019 for a stay in April 2019

This guesthouse is located in the very authentic village of Berb. Nothing but green fields and fresh air surround this little complex, hosts are really nice. Breakfast and other meals are provided by a restaurant close to the house (literally 2 minutes walking). On a trip to Romania, this needs to be a stop

“Gorgeous Maramures "cottage" with lovely hosts”
Reviewed 28 November 2018 for a stay in August 2017

Our family of five breathed a collective sigh of relief when we stepped into our cottage: spacious, clean, furnished simply and authentically. We had found our Maramures country home. Our hosts, Roxy and Florin, welcomed us warmly (speaking English). By day, we explored the Maramures (Biserica de lemm in Sârbi, Budesti, Desesti, Baia Mare, etc.); at night, we were awed by the brightness of the full starry sky. Don't be put off by the winding, seemingly remote path to Casa din Vale. Being among the farms and fields is the charm of this lovely rental.

“Step back in time in middle of nature”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016
people found this review helpful

When we entered the house we were provided with home made jam, honey and horinca (a traditional strong alcoholic apple drink from Maramures).

The house is unique and brought us back in time.
It is a traditional country house. It is very warm, cosy and the water was always hot, excellent for showers.

The road leading up to the house is very bumpy with stones so take your time if you are going by car.

We ordered dinner and was delivered to "Casa din Vale" on time. The food was homely, comforting and delicious on our cold rainy night. We even got cute desert cakes, home made butter and bread, plenty to feed an army :) We have great fun taking photos.

The hosts Roxana and Florin are excellent communicators, very quick to respond back and always ready to satisfy our needs.

We highly recommend "Casa din Vale" from Maramures to get away from the daily hectic city life and reconnect with nature and rural life.
The local folks are very warm and knew about Florin.

Excellently restored peasant house, but with all modern facilities. It gives one the opportunity to fully taste the local atmosphere. Breakfast is made of fresh local produce, fresh milk, eggs, butter and cheese. Very quiet, overlooking the mountains, with authentic and great taste traditional decorations, it is the perfect getaway and place to enjoy Maramures. And the hosts, although not there, are lovely and very helpful. And still, in the middle of nature, you have wireless connection:).

Management Response

Be aware of this kind of tourists who are very picky and extremely difficult to please. Happily, this type of clients are not coming to our place to often. These tourists are not looking for authentic places in order to enjoy the traditional life in the incredible surrounding of Breb village or Maramures area, or the restored old wooden houses, to find the story of the place, objectives to visit, and other interesting things to do, they are looking for very modern conditions. We restore old wooden houses wich are good equipped and have good condition for a vacation in Maramures, but this experience is not for everybody. We knew for the first moment we've met them that they are not in the right place and are not prepared for an experience in authentic Maramures. They didn't want to discuss to us, they weren't interested in finding out any information in regards to the village and our story. And regarding the price, Mr Fred P, please be advised that you didn't pay us, you paid the travel agency of your choice, who arranged your vacation in Romania. Probably you don't know what are our prices.
