                                      Rustic Charm

                                      5 of 5
                                      The cottage is basic but lovely - typical of the area. Ioan looks after the property and guests but to be honest there was nothing we needed him to do.There were more grapes, plums almonds and figs than we could eat and the lovely neighbours: Vasile and Elena insisted on giving us sweet peppers, tomatoes, chard, eggs, watermelon and more. In exchange we took Vasile to the local market in Pietroasele - which reminded me of markets in rural Ireland and the Mud Volcanoes north of Breaza. We also visited the Ciolanu Monastery and went for a walk in the hills beyond the Vineyards with Vasile. There is a Lidl in Mizil which is about 20 minutes from the cottage so you can get anything you need but don't buy veg or fruit - the home grown stuff is better. Its incredibly peaceful there and if the weather is good you can spend the day outside. If overcast there's a fab little porch at the side of the house with a lovely view which was pretty cool for reading and musing. Bart's directions work perfectly (despite the fact that the final stretch doesn't exist on Google maps) so trust them. Everyone is really friendly; if you don't speak Romanian - which I don't - take your iphone and use Google translate. Works a treat. No bars etc near the house - nearest is in Greacanca which you could walk to but its not a bar exactly more a cafe that has beer. I'd recommend this cottage to people who own well stocked Kindles and want to get away from the hustle and bustle.

                                      Great value for money and a very kind reception. Both the owner and his mam were very kind and friendly helping us to install smoothly. The house is close to the village center but also is a good remote location for visiting the mountains places on Prahova valley. All comfort needed for a good holiday was provided. Very clean, quite modern place to stay. Heartly recommended to anyone who wants to visit.
