• CASA NICU • The Methuselah among our cottage rentals has seen 120 years passing by without being overly impressed. During extensive renovations we left the basic substance untouched, and now the breath of the past still blows through the patient walls. So, this farmhouse is a good choice for whoever enjoys something special and wants to add a touch of Transylvanian serenity to their holiday experience.
The property is located in the pastoral village of Vale, directly at the feet of the Carpathian Mountains. On the one hand, far away from the pulse of time, on the other hand just around the corner from Sibiu, the European Capital of Culture 2007.
The village is nestled between the wooded mountains overlooking the Transylvanian plain - in an absolutely peaceful spot with no through traffic. After a few steps you already find yourself in...

The place was very cozy, warm and tidy. A spectacular old tile stove was warming the place. Very nice indeed. A very nice place for a stay of a few days in this nice carpatian village. Will be returning with friends to enjoy spring or summer.

Reviewed 18 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This is a quaint, cozy cottage perfectly sized for two. We celebrated our anniversary with a trip to Romania and Casa Vale is the perfect base. Whether interested in culture, handicrafts, rural living, history or hiking everything is within reach. Even in the middle of winter we found plenty to see and enjoy, from inexpensive local food to quaint villages...

We stayed in Casa Nicu for a week - and had a great time. The apartment is perfect for 2 people and there's real attention to detail which we were constantly struck by - condiments, washing detergent etc. It's a great base for the Transalpina which we drove a couple of times as well as lots of other villages, lakes...

Thanks Kate, for the great review and praise. I'm glad that you've enjoyed your holiday with us. Only one thing I would like to correct: the neighbors of Casa Pelu have their own terrace with seating, directly accessible from their rooms, and they know that the terrace in the courtyard belongs to Casa Nicu. They might use it if you're...

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.
