About the property

Take a break - in a quiet pastoral village in Transylvania near Sibiu

• CASA PELU • houses the completely refurbished living quarters of an abandoned farm - ideal for families looking for a child-friendly countryside retreat. The farmhouse is situated in the pastoral village of Vale, directly at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains. On the one hand, far away from the pulse of time, on the other hand just around the corner of Sibiu, the European capital of culture 2007. A good choice for lovers of special places who want to spice up their experience with a pinch of Transylvanian serenity.

The village is nestled between the wooded mountains overlooking the Transylvanian plain. No through traffic, in an absolutely peaceful spot. After a few steps you already find yourself on your way up to the mountain pastures. You hike through the oldest beech forest of the continent and will experience a unique flora and fauna. Alternatively, take advantage of the central location in the heart of Romania for trips in all directions.

Do you feel addressed? So take a break and treat yourself to a place where unspoiled nature meets the breath of the past and traditions.

Would you like to choose and learn more about what to expect? On • www.casa-vale.net • (our homepage) you find photo galleries with hundreds of pictures, virtual tours through our cottages, excursion tips, guest reviews and more.

••• CASA PELU •••

In this farmhouse the Old and the New shake hands. On the solid foundations of wine cellar and mezzanine floor we've set a new attic with access to a cozy roof terrace, and during the renovation every square meter has been handled with respect for the traditional style of the area. So, this cottage is a good choice also for those who are curious of how traditional architecture can be extended into modernity.

The double-door walk-in kitchen (13 sqm) is located on the mezzanine floor. It is fully equipped for self-catering with a fridge, gas stove, coffee maker and espresso machine, toaster, kettle, spices and more. The first room (17 sqm) leads off the kitchen. Three windows open the view out to the courtyard or an alley, where goats and sheep are passing by in the evening.

A staircase leads to the two light-filled rooms in the attic. The first one (13 sqm) is a connecting room and the second room (17 sqm) leads out onto the roof terrace. The view goes into the courtyard, into wooded mountains or up to the roofs of the village.

The rooms are equipped with a double bed, mirror cabinet, corner bench or armchairs, WiFi Internet access and two TVs (international channels by Astra Satellite). On arrival you will find the beds freshly made.

The bathroom (8 sqm) used to be the the summer kitchen of the farm. It is located underneath the roof terrace and is equipped with shower, bathtub and washer. Hand and bath towels, soap and shower gel are available.

The furnishing is high quality and was chosen with care, including sanitary facilities, kitchen utensils, mattresses and bedding. All furniture, newly installed windows, doors and stairs were consistently made to measure. Each floor and the bathroom are equipped with an electrical infrared panel.

The solar-assisted central heating is backed up threefold. Either you fire up the water-bearing tiled stove in the kitchen which supplies all the radiators in the house, or an automatic control takes over the job and starts a gas heater and / or the infrared panels.

The enclosed courtyard is a leafy feast. Here you can relax on another covered patio, uncork a bottle of wine and unpack the card game. Or take place on the slope above the village, enjoy the vastness of the valley, and you will be surprised about the thoughts popping up in your mind out of nowhere.

• For up to 6 people

• 3 rooms, 1 eat-in kitchen, 1 bathroom

• Roof terrace with seating

• Covered patio in the courtyard

• Minimum stay: 3 - 5 nights (seasonal)

____________________________________________________________________

••• We offer more than just accommodation •••

• The transfer from the Sibiu railway station or airport is included, and a reliable rental car is available directly from us.

• On request, our cook provides breakfast or swings the wooden spoon. She conjures traditional menus fresh on the table to pre-arranged time, with every gram of meat stemming from their own livestock. Vegetarian? No problem.

• Also available are farm products from the village, such as: fresh milk, goat or sheep's cheese, forest honey and homemade jam, zakusca, pickled vegetables, wine and schnaps.

• On request: shopping prior to your arrival, cot, high chair, rides in a horse cart or donkey cart for children.

• Tip: Excursion in horse-drawn cart to the mountains. The tour can take a few hours or an entire day. In between you stop at at creek, and on request, Nicu (our Carpathian Specialist) simmers a shepherd goulash in the kettle on the camp fire.

••• The village of Vale •••

… is secluded enough to wish fox and hare a good night. On the other hand , only 5 km away from the freeway that brings all sights of Transylvania closer to you. A tarmac road touches on the village, but in large parts, cobblestone roads and dirt trails lead up into the wooded hills. Thus traditional structures and straightforward hospitality still hold up in Vale. Horses, cows and goats continue being part of the village landscape, and the farmers take up their scythes and plant corn, potatoes and vegetables to preserve for the winter.

Some say it looks as though time were frozen and that a great deal of things aren’t perfect. The culture seems to be alien, the nature unique and untouched, and the breath of the past hides in every angle. It may occur to you that this is the charm of the extraordinary before being run over by the advance of civilization.

Until then look around. An overview of the sights of the area - plus a pinch of Transylvanian history - can be found below. Or, more detailed and accompanied with photo galleries, on our homepage • www.casa-vale.net •.

There is a children's playground and a small grocery store on the village square. The town of Saliste 2 km away offers more shops, banks and a farmer's market. Whatever is missing here can be found at the Zibins Market, in retail stores, or department chain stores such as Real, Carrefour and Lidl in Sibiu 20 km away.

••• We provide more than just one cottage •••

We aren't trained tourism experts. We live in Vale and have joined together in a small and family-type construction company. By this company, we have given five houses a complete overhaul or constructed them from scratch. With attention to detail all along, with respect towards the traditional style of the area, as well with a view to modern building materials and contemporary housing needs. The result is an encounter of different ages and cultures in five oasis of wellbeing, each of them with their own flair, distinctive and special in a place which – we hope – will be sidestepped by the world's hustle for a long time to come.

• VILLA CRINA • our jewel with 200 sqm of living space and terraced garden – for 8 people.

• CASA PELU • the former farmhouse with extended loft and roof terrace – for 6.

• CASA NICU • 120-year-old cottage with the appropriate historic flair – for 2 (to 3).

• VILLA ZOLLO • 150 sqm holiday home with panoramic views and large garden – for 6 (to 8).

• studio ZOLLO II • well equipped apartment with lterrace, BBQ and garden – for 2 (to 3).

• COZO FANTU • our shepherd’s hut in the mountain pastures – for 4.

A total of 12 rooms are endowed with double beds, Wi-Fi internet access, TV (Astra satellite), and plants. Some accommodations feature a garden and living room with a fireplace, and all of them have kitchens fully equipped for self-catering as well as 1 - 4 bathrooms, a washing machine, and at least one terrace. The (mostly solar-assisted) central heating facilities are powered by water-bearing chimneys, tiled stoves or gas heaters. In addition, nearly all of the rooms are equipped with infrared panels.

We care about you as a team, and in case of problems or questions you can always get in touch. We might have one or the other tip for you, of course we also master the art of discrete retreat. Either way - we maintain a climate of openness and equal rights.

About W. Konnerth

We aren't trained tourism experts. We live in Vale and have joined together in a small and family-type construction company, whereby all the holiday cottages were built. After eight years of work - with many possibilities for creative design - we put trowels and planing aside for a while and breathe a sigh.

Today, we care for you as a team. Of the income of the houses (your money) on the one hand the 'investor' is served. On the other hand, administration and care allow several families a secure income. When we cook for you, if you order local products or go shopping in the local grocery, also a number of other villagers have a benefit. Finally, we are planning a soup kitchen for the less well-off families in the village which also will be financed from the proceeds of our holiday homes. We foster a climate of openness and equality-based relationships.

.

W. Konnerth purchased this house in 2004

Why W. Konnerth chose Transylvania

... because cackling chickens and neighing horses strain the mind less than howling engines.

... because the sight of wooded mountains and free-flowing wild brooks is more pleasing to the eye than concreted soil on which skyscrapers grow.

... because there are not many places where the breath of bygone times is still visible and perceptible, and where, nevertheless, you don't have to give up the amenities of running water, central heating, TV and internet.

... because you can lie down on the hillside with a blade of grass in your mouth, and half an hour later you are standing in front of the imposing fortifications of a city that truly deserves the name 'european capital of culture'.

... because you enjoy a privilege here as a Western alien. It expresses itself more in a particular respect than in attempts to defraude or to attack you.

... and because - in range of our possibilities - we really care for you, if desired, instead of only managing you. Of course, we also master the art of discrete retreat.

.

What makes this house unique

... you may judge for yourself after you've been here.

a great way to see Transylvania

  • 4 of 5

Vale was, to be brief, all that we hoped for and more. A small village nestled below pastures and forests, it was quiet and delightfully scenic. The house is lovely, although be prepared for multi-levels and the need to take an outside staircase to each level. It was a quite lovely stay and I will indeed be recommending this home to my friends.

Urlaub für Naturfreunde, Tierfreunde und solchen, für denen Menschlichkeit kein Fremdwort ist

  • 5 of 5

Tief beeindruckt von der Landschaft und den Menschen in und um Vale sind wir schweren Herzens wieder nach Hause gefahren mit dem festen Vorsatz: wir kommen wieder!

Das Ferienhaus ist super ausgestattet, gemütlich und sehr sauber. Nicu, der Verwalter oder besser gesagt, die gute Seele des Hauses, ist einer der fleißigsten und nettesten Menschen, die mir je begegnet sind. Das leckere Essen, welches Adriana auf Wunsch pünktlich ins Haus bringt, ist mit Liebe gekocht und schmeckt auch sehr gut.

Die touristischen Möglichkeiten sind nahezu unbegrenzt für Leute die nicht auf Pauschal- oder All-In Urlaub stehen, sondern für Leute die Natur lieben, denen es nichts ausmacht, wenn früh der Hahn kräht oder abends die Grillen zirpen, wenn Vormittag die Kirchenglocken läuten oder der Bauer mit seinem Pferdewagen am Haus vorbeizieht. Man muss diese Möglichkeiten nur nutzen wie z.B. auf dem Bauernmarkt die köstlichen Obstsorten probieren, das herrliche pestizidfreie Gemüse kaufen, mit den Roma auch mal um ein schönes Souvenir, garantiert handgemacht zu feilschen, die wunderschönen Städte und Dörfer der Region besichtigen, in den Bergen wandern und vieles mehr.

So freuen wir uns schon auf den nächsten Urlaub in Rumänien im nächsten Jahr, aber dann für mindestens zwei Wochen.

Owner's Response: Danke ihr beiden, eure Begeisterung und Lob sind ein perfekter Motivationsschub in der ausklingenden Saison - die manchmal von etwas Neid begleitet wird, denn es fällt nicht immer leicht zu arbeiten, während andere urlauben. Nun ja, wir sind halt auch nur Menschen... Übrigens - ein Gockel nebenan kräht seit heute nicht mehr, weil er in der Suppe gelandet ist. Aber er hat zwei heranwachsende Küken hinterlassen, die sich bereits aufplustern und ihre Schwestern durch den Hof jagen. Kommt gut durch's Jahr. Hier seid ihr jederzeit willkommen, Werner

Super Urlaub in Siebenbürgen

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen unvergesslichen Urlaub in Vale. Werner und Nicu holten uns mit 2 Autos (wir waren zu fünft) nachts um 2 Uhr vom Flughafen ab. Müde erreichten wir dann das Ferienhaus Casa Pelu. 3 schön eingerichtete Zimmer, eine sehr gut ausgestattete und geräumige Küche mit Essecke, hier war an alles gedacht. Inklusive eines riesigen Schafskäses im Kühlschrank, so schmackhaft, dass wir nochmal nachgekauft haben. Am nächsten Morgen bekamen wir ein sehr reichhaltiges und leckeres Frühstück von der Köchin, das war richtig toll. Insgesamt war die "Betreuung" während des Aufenthaltes überdurchschnittlich gut. Bei Problemen konnte man sich jederzeit an Werner oder Nicu wenden und es wurde umgehend geholfen.

Rumänien ist auf jeden Fall eine oder mehrere Reisen wert. Vale ist sehr malerisch und liegt günstig für diverse Ausflüge. Wir hatten den Passat gemietet, der uns treu überall hin brachte. So waren wir an einem Bergsee, in Sibiu (tolle Stadt), Wandern, im Freibad, Schäßburg, Bran und Schloß Rasnov und vieles mehr. Besonders hat uns die Tour auf der Transalpina gefallen, hier würde ich jedem die große Runde empfehlen, war doch viel zu sehen. Nicu und Werner haben uns auch hier viele Tips gegeben und hatten auch reichlich Infomaterial im Haus. Die Mitmenschen sind alle sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wer Vorurteile hatte, hat jetzt zumindest keine mehr. Ich würde jederzeit gern wieder nach Vale fahren, vielleicht ein bissel länger, eine Woche ist viel zu kurz.

Ein rundum gelungener Urlaub.

Gemütliches Haus, uriges Dorf, tolle Landschaft!

  • 5 of 5

Sehr gepflegte, gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung in einem traumhaften Dorf, in welchem wirklich die Zeit stehen geblieben ist.

Ein Aufenthalt für Romantiker und unkomplizierte Menschen, die die Nähe zur Natur und alles Ursprüngliche, also auch den frühmorgendlichen Hahnenschrei oder Hundegebell, lieben. Man kann in der näheren und weiteren Umgebung sehr viel besichtigen und erwandern, sollte aber für bestimmte Ziele (z.B. Brasov / Bran) an die 3 Stunden Fahrtzeit einkalkulieren.

Das Badezimmer von Casa Pelu ist über eine Außentreppe zu erreichen (für uns kein Problem) und das Haus besitzt einen gemeinsamen Innenhof mit der Ferienwohnung von Casa Nicu (nette Gäste!).

Wir haben einen wunderschönen Urlaub verbracht!

Alles bestens! Danke!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Sommer 2016 für 14 Tagen im Casa Pelu im Hirtendorf Vale zu Gast. Das Haus ist liebevoll und gemütlich eingerichtet, alles sehr sauber. Bei unserer Ankunft war Nicu, der Hausmeister, vor Ort, um uns alles zu zeigen. In den gesamten 2 Wochen waren er und Herr Konnerth jederzeit ansprechbar, um Fragen (englich oder deutsch) zu beantworten oder Produkte aus dem Dorf zu besorgen. Weiterhin durften den Service der Köchin sehr intensiv nutzen und haben hierdurch die einheimische Küche etwas kennen gelernt. Hierfür danke.

Die Lage des Dorfes liegt strategisch sehr günstig im Herzen Siebenbürgens. Man kann ihn als gut Ausgangspunkt für diverse Erkundungen nutzen. Die Stadt Sibiu liegt ca. 25 km entfernt und war 2007 europäische Kulturhauptstadt. Neben dem Stadtzentrum sollte man sich den Astra Museumskomplex nicht entgehen lassen. Es handelt sich um das größte Freilichtnationalmuseum Rumäniens und zeigt die Urspünge der früheren Lebens- und Arbeitswelt.

Trotz aller schweren Lebensbedingungen begegneten uns die dort lebenden Menschen stets herzlich und offen. Zu keiner Zeit erlebten wir Ablehnung oder hatten ein ängstliches Gefühl. Unzählige Pferderwagen, freilaufende Hunde, Katzen, Pferde, Schafe oder Kühe kreuzen nicht selten den Weg, wordurch unser Urlaub des öfteren einer Zeitreise glich, welche man sich nicht entgehen lassen sollte.

Owner's Response: Nun ja, der Ochsenkarren war ein Pferdewagen, sonst hätte die Tour deutlich länger gedauert - aber viel wichtiger ist, daß es Ihnen gefallen hat. Danke für die feine Bewertung und gerne bis bald, Werner

••• Transylvania •••

… is the land of the legendary places, the churches, castles, fortresses and monasteries. Only a few are known, such as the Dracula castle in Bran, the Sphinx Megalith in the Bucegi Mountains or Sarmizegetusa, the capital of the ancient Dacian culture. But they are found everywhere: sometimes as a quiet gem on the edge of the road, as a monumental fortress on the safe rock, or as a hand-engraved proof of love to the craftwork in a monastery in the forest. An overview of all these eye-catchers would overload this page, but if you are interested you can find hundreds of pictures on our homepage • www.casa-vale.net •.

A trip can take you an hour or a day, here some examples:

The open-air Marmelada swimming pool is just across the hill 20 walking minutes away, and so does five lakes in the valley. In 15 minutes you leave the village below you, passing dozens of hand-carved wooden sculptures in the Poiana Soarelui (sunny glade) on your ascent, to arrive at the mountain meadows and enjoy a unique view across the vastness of the Transylvanian Plain. In good weather, you get sweeping views all the way to Sibiu and the mountain range beyond. Alternatively you can start a hiking tour in the village of Sibiel (2 km) that hosts Romania’s most important museum for icons with reverse glass painting. From here, you walk along a wild stream to a secluded monastery in the midst of the forest and further.

Connoisseurs are attracted to the mountain lake at Gura Raiului (13 km). It lies in a depression. The water is clear and in the evening, you can light a fire and watch the fish jump for mosquitoes. Anyone visiting this place won’t easily forget it.

If you are aiming really high, you can choose between two north-south passes over the Carpathians, both to visit in a day trip:

• The ‘Transfagarasan’ – winding past steep rocks and a waterfall dozens of meters high. On the top of the pass, ‘Balea Lake’ awaits you with a hostel and the house of ice.

• The ‘Transalpina’ - at 2.145m the highest trafficable road across the Carpathians, sometimes even towers above the clouds. Created by the Romans in their campaign against the Dacians, she was rebuilt during World War II, then forgotten, and today winds through one of the few untouched mountain regions in Europe. The Transalpina starts at Saliste, just 2 km from Vale.

Via both routes you arrive at the southern part of the country, in ‘Walachia’, and make your way back through the ‘Olt valley’, the only north-south route through the Carpathians, passing ancient monasteries and partly, steep cliffs. Anyone who doesn’t stop here must be in a real hurry.

When you’ve had enough of mountains and steep slopes, turn to the valley. The countryside is spotted with ancient fortified churches built by the Transylvanian Saxons partly 800 years ago.

One of their medieval cities, the european capital of culture Sibiu, lies just around the corner and to this day is a fountain of cultural diversity. The medieval fortifications embrace the old town with its historic alleys and restaurants, cafés and bars, some of them set in vaulted cellars or courtyards. During the summer, the town opens up to its visitors and regularly organizes events, ranging from cabaret and theater through open-air concerts to exhibitions of local crafts guilds.

The traditional village museum ASTRA on the outskirts of Sibiu also merits one or two glances: century-old log cabins, water mills, blacksmith shops and saw mills from all over the country were reconstructed true to the original.

From here it’s just a stone’s throw to the fortified church of Cisnadioara, established in the 13th century and one of the oldest Saxon buildings in Transylvania. It stands on an almost circular mountain top above the village.

After walking for hours you will feel your legs. In the saltwater lakes and spas of Ocna Sibiului (25 km) you can soothe your aching bones in brine, stretch out in saltwater reading the newspaper, and then coat yourself in mud. The way back leads you past Cristian. Here another fortified church gives you an impression of how centuries ago, people barricaded themselves against Mongols, Turks and Kuruc irregulars.

If you choose to delve deeper into the history of Romania you will hear about the Dacians. Similar to the Celts in Ireland, they are famous for their mystical traditions and particular skills. Even today the faithful flock to their places of worship, only ruins of which have survived.

The last Dacians are said to have taken refuge in the ‘Muntii Apuseni’ (40 km), a sparsely populated region on the western border of Transylvania. Today however, this area is known for caves and abandoned mine tunnels, some of which run hundreds of meters through rock. Skeletons of dinosaurs and other prehistoric monsters are found in their depths even today. Early birds can explore this area on a day trip.

No matter which way you turn, you’ll experience amazing things - usually things you never expected.
