• 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 feet of the Carpathian Mountains.

About the neighbourhood
You just have to leave the cottage and you wander through the oldest beech forest in Europe. The historic old town of Sibiu is only 20 km away, and via the nearby motorway you can quickly reach the Dracula Castle, Sighisoara or fortified churches in every second village in Transylvania.
Breakfast and traditional menus are served by our cook directly on the table. Alternatively you can choose between two good restaurants 2-3 km away and pizza from the stone oven, which is also delivered.
There is a children's playground and a small grocery store at the village square. The town of Saliste 2 km away offers more shops, a farmer's market and an ATM cash machine. Whatever you miss here can be found in Sibiu in retail stores, or supermarkets.
Getting around
The village of Vale is located close to the small town of Saliste with bus (2 km away) and train station (4 km away). There is no public transport in the village. That's why we recommend a car, that you can hire at the Sibiu airport or directly with us.
