The house is beautifully situated only 15-20 mins from the old town and yet you can hike the Carpathians straight from the front door. The house is has very good facilities, plenty of rooms and stunning views. It is at the end of an unpaved road so be aware if hiring cars and I would have preferred comfy chairs and maybe an umbrella to sit out on the main terrace and enjoy the views of an afternoon but that's a pretty minor point. You can access every kind of walk from a gentle stroll through the woods all the way to climbing the Seven Ladders Canyon and some long hikes in the mountains without even getting in your car. Equally you can get to a huge supermarket in 10 mins and all the sights, bars and restaurants of Brasov in 15-20 mins. Overall, I'd definitely recommend it as a base for the area.
Communication throughout the entire process was very good.
Yannis was quick to respond to messages and maintained contact with me to ensure that we arrived safely and had all we needed. She detailed all the essential information that we needed both verbally and in written form. Her written instructions outlined the facilities, access codes and general information about local area, which proved to be very useful in enhancing our overall experience.
The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and very spacious yet extremely comfortable. All opening windows were fitted with insect nets to prevent an "invasion" of bugs and curtains to diffuse the strong sunlight.
The bedroom was airy with the addition of a large freestanding fan to keep it cool. The lounge offers a generous sofa bed and simple contemporary furniture to compliment the style of the property and air conditioning to help keep you cool. The kitchen and bathroom are well stocked with a variety of gadgets and time saving devices and essentials such as a hair dryer, ironing and coffee machine - we lacked for nothing.
It was an absolute pleasure to stay at this delightful apartment set in the charming leafy suburb of Floreasca, surrounded by cafes and restaurants.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quite base within easy reach of the Metro and all the main sights.
It is definitely a property I would highly recommend and would have no hesitation to returning to this peaceful haven.
