Overview
Cabin -
1 Bedroom , Sleeps 6
Vale, Saliste, Sibiu County, Central Romania, Transylvania
• COZO FANTU • The former shepherd’s hut in the Carpathian meadows provides only basic convenience, but lots of fresh mountain air for stressed lungs. A spring originates a stone’s throw away, the trees hang heavy with cherries, and you can get cheese or milk from the shepherd next door. A perfect log cabin holiday for lovers of unspoiled nature on the edge of civilization. And a good choice for those who want to enrich their experience with a pinch of Transylvanian serenity.

The mountain cabin is located 7 km above the village of Fantanele, 9 km away from the small town of Orlat, and 25 km from Sibiu. It is not accessible by car, so we will accompany you on your way there and back. In our off-road SUV it takes an hour, and with the horse-drawn cart about three hours. In both cases it’s an adventure worth remembering.

This line from a poem I learned as a child sums up the very best of what the hut meant to us. Time hangs heavy in the mountains and there is much to delight the soul. We watched butterflies, including graceful swallowtails, saw a wild salamander, and lots of animal tracks....including a paw print the size of a saucer (with claws) We enjoyed walks through deciduous and coniferous forests all interspersed with meadows and glades. It is so quiet that it is noisy with individual sounds: the screeching of jays, the bells of sheep, donkeys and a cow, crickets and a dog barking. Doubtless the hut would not be for everyone: it is remote, and there is no running water: but these privations add to the charm. Supper stewed over a camp fire with a host of stars overhead, watched over by the neighbour's dog, ewes' milk and cheese from the neighbouring shepherds, a snuggly bed in total dark and only natural noises. Werner gave us great advice, was reassuring, but appropriately left us to it.

Management response:

Thanks Emma, you've found very empathetic words. A look back without exaggeration, but with much feeling for original life beyond zivilisation. Hope to see you again in the Carpathians.

Map
About the neighbourhood
Alpine meadows, proud mountains and the vastness of the valleys, stretch for as far as the eye can see, dotted by wooden huts and shelters, sheep, cows, and horses. This is a great starting point for hikes to the mountain lake at Gura Raului and further up into the mountains. Or just simply lie down on a hillside, chew on a blade of grass and taste the tranquility of original nature on the edge of civilization.
From us you will receive the best current hiking map of the Cindrel Mountains. In any case, you will not get lost up there beause you're not alone in the Carpathians. Next to other hikers, you'll find a shepherd leaning on his cane on every other hill.
Getting around
The only neighbour is a shepherd with his animals. There you can get fresh milk and sheep's cheese. Besides you have some hiking trails, that's all. No public transport, no bus or train station, no highway or airport in the closer surroundings. To reach the civilisation you have to hike 9 km along a brook to the small town of Orlat.
