“Amazing Hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2011

Everything about our stay was perfect; the rooms were very nice, the food was amazing, Di & Jez do everything possible to make sure the guest is getting the most out of their stay, their staff is amazing, the greeting team (the dogs) were even amazing! The area is beautiful and there is lots to see, we found the people of Romania to be very warm and welcoming as well. We highly recommend the low level walk (about a 10 mile walk through the hills and tiny villages with Jez). Our experience was wonderful and we will definitely be back. Also, a special thanks to Doris who helped us arrange to renew our wedding vows while we were there!

Wow is the only word that I can come up with for our hosts Di, Jez and the team. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. After a rather bumpy journey we quickly felt at home with the warm and friendly welcome we recieved from Di & Jez. Followed by the first of a weeks amazing meals, Di's home cooked meals were amazing and coming from me that is high praise indeed. Nothing was too much!

If you look at 'Secret Transylvania' and think it is too good be true, then you would be right but it is true. It is a holiday with the hassle taken out. To be driven to the sites and really taken care of never seemed to be too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this holiday to all as Di and Jez will fit the trips etc to fulfil your needs.

I and my travel companions could have spent longer seeing the 'real' Transylvania. Beautiful scenery, friendly welcoming locals and cheap shopping and eating. This trip really was all inclusive. So much so that part of me wishes it could stay a secret to be my own secret!

A special thanks to Jez from Dave and Steve for the impromptu battlefield tour (Battle of Sibiu, 1916) on the last day of our holiday, they found it very interesting and the views from where the Romanian trenches were was fantastic, and also the visit to the Romanian and Russian war graves, which was fascinating.

Thanks to Di, Jez and the gang for giving us the most wonderful holiday we could have asked for and for all the little extras.

Four of us (two couples) have just spent a splendid week at Casa Verde, an experience which certainly exceeded our expectations. The accommodation suited us perfectly (two large rooms, each with ensuite shower, plus a kitchen), just ten minutes walk from the main house. Jez and Di were excellent hosts: to re-iterate previous reviews, the food was delicious and very plentiful! and the flexibility offered in terms of excursions/timing was perfect. We were more than happy to be guided by our hosts as to how to fill our days and were not once disappointed. We did some fabulous (if energetic!) walks terminating in stupendous views of totally unspoiled mountain scenery with swathes of trees; we visited Sibiu and Sighisoara (both quaint and interesting towns); Balea Lac, lovely spot high up in the ski-ing area; went up on a ski lift; visited a local market; saw several historic fortified churches, all interesting and varied. Would certainly recommend a trip to this part of Transylvania for those who like somewhere not yet marred by commercialisation, and offering a variety of rural charm and spectacular scenery. We certainly appreciated being chauffeured by knowledgeable hosts and also the delightful Nelitsu, it took away every ounce of stress! Every good wish to Jez and Di for the future – they have a brilliant formula.
(As a footnote, we found that flying from Heathrow to Sibiu via Vienna (very short stop) worked well and meant only a 20/30 minute drive to Cisnadioara)

It's impossible to be more positive about our experience at STG. Everything was just perfect. We overengineered our visit by hiring a car, and wished we'd just let Jez and Di organise our travel! The accommodation was just lovely, the food indescribably good. The village is perfect, adn the surrouding countryside speaks for itself. Sibiu is a great local town, easy to get into, good(ish) restaurants. We're coming back!

Room Tip: The house in the village is about five minutes walk from breakfast which never felt onerous, and it...

Not sure this is going to stay as Secret Transylvania very much longer, our 6 night stay far exceded any thoughts I had before we travelled to Romania.
We stayed on a B&B basis in Sept 2011 and to say that we were made very welcome is an understatement it was more on the lines of friends you had known for a very long time getting together.
We joinded the other guests on 2 of our evenings for Dinner and I have to say the food, service, wine was as good as any top restaurant
For Di and Jez nothing was to much trouble -
We are free spirits and like to travel around under our own steam - but we speant evenings discussing where to visit and nothing was hidden - everything was great as I said to DI & Jez when we came home they have a great product and they should be proud of what they offer.
We will be returning in Sept-Oct 2012 that is a promise.

Jez and Diana are very special people and they know how to make you feel at home.
I really miss them and I hope that next time when I will go there I will find available rooms cause this year I couldn't find it :(

Di and Jez live in a tiny village where they have two large rooms in their own house , where there is also a bar and dining room, andtwo down the the street sutitable for a family. They serve lovely food and drive you round either as a group or as individuals, taking you to markets, the beautifulsaxon churches . and the slightly tacky toursits spots associated with Dracular. It's incredible value, at £455 for a week with three meals a day - though one meal is eaten out pretty basic restaurants where meat balls are the order of the day. Di's cooking is supberb and Jez leads walks across the mountains. For an extra £100 you can go bear walking. You could ingore the trips and explore on your own, though its probably best for people who want a bit of company, and enjoy doing things with other guests.s
