                                      Fabulous property

                                      5 of 5
                                      From my first contact with Werner he was always incredibly helpful and was there to guide us to the house after we arrived into Vale following a rather long and trying road trip from Maramures in far northern Romania. The house is exactly as specified on the website but appeared even larger, if that's possible. There is private parking, behind large wooden gates which is ideal, unless of course you have rented, by mistake, a ridiculously large car as we did, but I still managed to negotiate it into place with help. As check-in is 1800 ordering food for that night is probably a good idea, just be aware that the portions are enormous and I ordered far too much for 2 adults and a child. The house was spotless and, for anyone used to renting properties, this is such a bonus and unfortunately quite unusual. The layout of the 3 rental properties is based around a central courtyard and Villa Crina's sitting room windows back onto the courtyard. For the other 2 houses this is their only outside space so it's a good idea to come downstairs fully dressed otherwise the neighbours could get quite a shock! The location is prefect, barely 10 minutes drive to the main motorway which takes you to Sibiu in under half an hour. Fabulous scenery in a totally unspoilt area. The local swimming pool is well worth a visit and our little boy loved it. If you are thinking of coming to Romania, do not hesitate, it's a fabulous country and you will always feel welcome. There is so much to see and do around Vale, don't hesitate to book this house, you will not be disappointed.

                                      I stayed here one week with a group of friends and we had such a great time! Very nice villa, had everything we needed really and the location is magnificent: it was quiet, very relaxing and the views from the terraces were beautiful! Also, the city of Brasov and the supermarkets were close, around 10 min by car. The villa was very very clean and tidy, good effort by the manager. I highly recommend it.
