The holiday rentals
The rental homes are located near Sibiu in Transylvania at the Carpathians.
... are set in a natural and unspoiled rural environment.
Over nine years of intense work, we have given them a complete overhaul or built them from scratch. We combined local building styles and craftsmanship with contemporary materials, proceeding always with attention to detail and respect towards the traditions of the area. While preserving the simplicity of bygone times, it was a pleasure to see the cottages grow and their souls revive.
The result is an encounter of different ages and cultures in five oases of wellbeing, each of them having their distinctive and special flair in a place which – as we hope – remains untouched by the world's hustle for a long time to come.
A total of 15 rooms are endowed with double beds, fast Internet via WiFi, TV (international channels), and plants. The two villas provide a garden with BBQ and parking, and a living room with a fireplace. Each property, including the farmhouses, features at least one terrace, 1-4 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen for self-catering, a washing machine, detergents, soaps and other consumables.
The interiors were selected with attention to detail and are of high quality, including kitchen utensils, mattresses and linens, as well as sanitary installations. All of the furniture, windows, doors and stairs were consistently made to measure. The central heating facilities (most of them solar-assisted) are powered by water-bearing fireplaces, tiled stoves or gas heaters. In addition, nearly all of the rooms are equipped with infrared panels.

The pastoral village of Vale
Treat yourself to our Transylvanian holiday lodges near Sibiu at the Romania Carpathians.
... is nestled between wooded hills overlooking the Transylvanian plain. It's a tranquil spot to relax and hang ten, great for whoever wants to enjoy the serenity of the countryside, wander through intact forests and admire the originality of the Romanian mountains, but also a good starting point for excursions to all attractions in Transylvania.
A tarmac road touches on the village, but it is mostly cobblestone roads and dirt trails leading up into the mountains. Thus, traditional structures and straightforward hospitality still hold up in Vale. Horses, chicken and goats are still part of the village landscape, and the farmers plant corn, potatoes, and vegetables to provide for the winter.
More about Vale in the photo gallery Pictures from Transylvania.
Some people say that the Romanian countryside appears frozen in time. It is unique and mostly untouched and the breath of the past touches you in every corner. Just make yourself comfortable on the hillside above the village, take a look in the vastness of the valley, and enjoy the thoughts popping into your mind out of nowhere. Maybe you'll feel the charm of the extraordinary, perceiving what life was like before it was stricken by the waves of civilization.
Until then, take a good look around. Most people in these parts are open-minded and very friendly when met with respect, and many of them speak English, making communication easy.
The Carpathian Mountains
Try one of our mountain cottages in Sibiu for your Transylvania walking holidays.
The ascent to the Cindrel mountain range can be started in any of the neighbouring villages. After a few steps you already find yourself in the oldest beech forest of the continent, and hiking towards the mountain pastures you will experience a unique flora and fauna. You will also encounter original places. Walking alongside a wild stream, you pass a secluded monastery in the midst of the forest, or you take another trail to arrive at the Sunny Glade with its dozens of hand-carved wooden sculptures scattered in the mountain pastures. Here, the view of the mountain scenery and the expanse of the valleys further below soothes all the worries of this world.
Here is an illustrated tour to the Cindrel Carpathians in our area.
The old town of Sibiu
Book a special Romania rental home near Sibiu for your Transylvania holidays and Carpathian hiking.
If you want to explore Transylvania, become acquainted with its people, or delve into the country's history in front of an old stonework, you are in the right spot here. Heists and highway robberies are tales from the long-gone years of turmoil following the political change in Romania, and Count Dracula obviously exists only in movies.
The city of Sibiu, founded by German-Flemish settlers in 1150, lies just around the corner of Vale, and it is a source of cultural diversity up to nowadays. The medieval fortifications embrace the old town with its historic alleys and cafés and bars, some of them set in vaulted cellars or courtyards. During the summer, the town reaches out to its visitors and regularly organizes events, ranging from cabaret and theatre through open-air concerts to exhibitions of local crafts guilds. Take a look at our Sibiu photo gallery.
The countryside is spotted with ancient fortified churches, Dacian ruins, castles and abandoned Roman mines. Every small town boasts an open market where you can buy garden vegetables, forest honey, sheep's cheese and, at times, medicinal herbs. Of course a tomato from the farmer's wife doesn't just look different from a supermarket tomato, it also tastes different.

The Transalpina road
Try our Transylvania homes and holiday rentals in Romania at the foot of the Transalpina road.
The Transalpina is the highest road across the Carpathians, taking you into one of the few untouched mountain regions in Europe. It starts only a few villages away from Vale. Constructed by the Romans in their campaign against the Dacians, it was rebuilt during World War II, then forgotten, and today winds through one of the few untouched mountain regions in Europe.
On the other side of the mountain range, you dip into the southern climate zone of Walachia, from where you make your way back through the Olt valley. It's the only north-south route through the Carpathians, passing ancient monasteries and some steep cliffs. Whoever doesn’t stop here must be in a real hurry.
Here you'll find photos of the Transalpina in Romania.
Be sure to find peace and relaxation here

Cackling chickens and neighing horses strain the mind less than howling engines. The sight of wooded mountains and free-flowing wild brooks is more pleasing to the eye than concreted soil on which skyscrapers grow.
Thus, your perception of peace and tranquility will soon change, and you'll serenely tolerate the occasional rattle of a chainsaw or the barking of the dogs because it belongs to this place.
Leaving behind some advantages and disadvantages of civilization, hang ten and let your thoughts wander. Your temporary home provides a comfortable ambience in fresh mountain air, and you'll sleep cosily as a bear in his den.

We live in Vale and have joined together in a family-type construction company, which has built all of the holiday cottages. After eight years of work - with many possibilities for creative design - we cast the trowels and the hammers aside for a while and took a deep breath. Today, we care for you as a team. In case of problems or questions you can always get in touch with us. Furthermore, we might have one or two tips at hand for you, but we also master the art of the discreet retreat.
From the income generated by the houses (your money), first the investor is served. On the other hand, administration and care-taking yield a secure income for several families. Whenever we cook for you, or any time you order local products or go shopping in the local grocery, a number of other villagers have a benefit. Finally, we are preparing a soup kitchen for the less well-off families in the village which will also be financed from the proceeds of our holiday homes.
With us you can book your Transylvania holidays directly online, kids and pets are welcome. Many of our guests spend their annual family holiday here and they always leave satisfied. See for yourself and check out our guestbook.
We maintain a climate of
honesty, tolerance and equality.
Take a break ...
