The Holiday home

••• Casa Lopo •••

... is our latest project with an all over perceptible cosy atmosphere. The holiday farm is a good choice for whoever prefers a family friendly countryside retreat with the taste of bygone days, instead of splashing around in the chlorinated pool of a 5-star hotel.
We have given the cottage a makeover and devoted ourselves patiently to many details that sometimes woke up from decades of deep s leep. Our aim was to preserve the original historic charm best as possible, at the same time providing the minimum of convenience that can be expected even in an ancient farmhouse set in a place where hedgehogs and donkeys cross their paths. Our previous guests say that we succeeded.

The property consists of the dwelling quarters (a plastered wooden house with 3 rooms), a barn with a back garden, a terrace, and a cosy annex with double bed - perfect for young people not wishing to encroach on their parents’ space.
The house is entered through the outer hallway and the kitchen between the two rooms. It is fully equipped with a gas stove, refrigerator, water cooker, toaster, coffee and espresso machine and, of course, plenty of dishes, spices, detergents, soaps, and other consumables. Since it was a bit dark, we gave the kitchen a ceiling window and - impressed by the light gain - did the same in the smaller bedroom. The larger room with a double bed and corner bench has 4 windows and adjoins the bathroom with washing machine that is entered through the hallway.
A fast internet connection via Wifi is included.
In the winter, you can either use a gas heater or light up the tiled stove. This not only heats the air over the tiles, but also supplies all radiators in the house via the built-in water pipes.
Of course, our optional services also apply here, such as breakfast, traditional menus or farm products from the village. The transfer from Sibiu station or airport is included, and on request you can order one of our rental cars, get a cot for your baby and a high chair.
We are not quite finished with the renovation. Some roofs need new tiles, the terrace wants a friendlier face, and so we will continue to devote ourselves to one or the other detail as soon as there is some time left. In the meantime, we will make sure that you always see the latest pictures here.

Location and surroundings of object


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

• Transfer from the Sibiu airport or railway station 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 to the table by appointment - each gram of meat a product of her own livestock farming. 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: baby cot, high chair, rides in a donkey cart for children, grocery shopping prior to your arrival.
• Tip: Excursion in a horse-drawn cart to the mountains. The tour can take a few hours or an entire day. On the way, you stop at a creek and Nicu (our Carpathian specialist) prepares a shepherd goulash in the kettle on the camp fire.


••• The village of Vale •••

… is out in the sticks, in the middle of nowhere. On the other hand, the freeway that brings all sights of Transylvania closer to you is only 5 km away. A tarmac road touches on the village, but in large parts, it’s cobblestone roads and dirt trails leading up into the wooded hills. Thus, traditional structures and straightforward hospitality still hold up in Vale. Horses, cows and goats are still part of the village landscape, and the farmers take up their scythes and plant corn, potatoes, and vegetables to provide for the winter.
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 20 km away at the Cibin Market, in retail stores, or supermarkets such as Real, Carrefour and Lidl.
Some say that the Transylvanian countryside appears frozen in time. It is unique and mostly untouched and the breath of the past hides in every corner. Maybe you'll sense the charm of the extraordinary, perceiving what life was like before it was leveled by the advance of civilization.
Until then, take a good look around. 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. Most people in these parts are open-minded and very friendly when met with respect.


••• We aren't trained tourism experts •••

We live in Vale and have joined together in a small and family-type construction company, which all the holiday cottages were built by. After eight years of work - with many possibilities for creative design - we cast the trowels and planning 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. Furthermore, we might have one or two tips at hand for you, but we also master the art of discreet retreat.
From the income generated by the houses (your money), on the one hand the 'investor' is served. On the other hand, administration and care-taking yield a secure income for several families. When we cook for you, or when 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 will also be financed from the proceeds of our holiday homes.
We nurture a climate of openness and equality-based relationships. And we look forward to our mostly respectful and tolerant guests who contribute personally to bring together the different universes in this world.

••• 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, but also as a hand-adorned token of love to craftsmanship in a monastery in the forest. An overview of all these eye-catchers would overload this page, but you'll find more on our homepage • •.

A trip can take you an hour or a day. Here are some examples for sights and tours in the area:
The open-air Marmelada swimming pool is just across the hill 20 walking minutes away, and so are 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 to the mountain range beyond Sibiu.
The neighbor village of Sibiel 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 up into the mountains.
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 across 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 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 some steep cliffs. Whoever 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 up to 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 away) 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 away), 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 expexted.

Idyllisches Bauernhaus auf dem Land

from Fee from 307160

travel period: February 2019

Ein wirklich schnuckeliges Bauernhaeuschen, huebsch hergerichtet, in ruhiger Dorflage. Wer einen geruhsamen Urlaub machen moechte, ist hier genau richtig. Das Casa Lopo in Vale ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt fuer Ausflugsziele in der Naehe, seien es die Berge zum Wandern oder im Winter zum Skifahren oder eine Staedtetour nach Sibiu. Wir waren zum Skifahren mit unseren Kindern in Paltinis, Arena Platos, was uns sehr gut gefallen hat. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Idyllischer Rückzugsort

from Stefan from Heilbronn

travel period: August 2018

Das Häuschen ist ein eigenes kleines Reich. Rosen, Innenhof mit Sitzplatz, die liebevoll restaurierten Zimmer, das hübsche Bad - eine einzige Idylle! Die Ausstattung ist zwar ein wenig eingeschränkt (kein Backofen, kein TV dafür super WLAN und eine Waschmaschine!) uns hat aber nichts gefehlt. Der Vermieter ist super hilfsbereit. Es ist wirklich immer jemand vom Team erreichbar (deutsch oder englisch). Alles tadellos und unkompliziert organisiert: klare Empfehlung! (kleine Familie mit 10-jährigem Kind drei Personen)

travel period: July 2018

Die eine Woche im Casa Lopo hatte nur ein Problem: sie war viel zu kurz.
Für in die Jahre gekommene Rucksacktouristen und ehemalige ostdeutsche Rumänienfahrer, die nun mit Kindern reisen, war diese Unterkunft genau das Richtige. Wohnen im Museum. Über die überaus reizvolle Landschaft muss man kein Wort mehr verlieren. Das Ferienhaus bietet alles, was man braucht – nicht mehr und nicht weniger. Service und Betreuung sind phantastisch: einheimische Produkte aus dem Dorf mit einem Geschmack, den man als Mitteleuropäer schon längst vergessen hat und wir wurden 4 Uhr nachts zum Flughafen gefahren.
Danke, wir kommen gerne wieder.

Ursprüngliches, hübsches Feriendomizil

from Ute from 89407 Dillingen

travel period: December 2017

Wir waren bereits zweimal im Casa Zollo, wo es uns sehr gut gefiel. Diesmal haben wir das Casa Lopo gebucht.
Es ist ein ursprüngliches Feriendomizil, das sehr schön und gemütlich saniert ist. Es hat eine gute Aussattung mit Waschmaschine, Internet, großem Kühlschrank mit Tiefkühltruhe.
Die Lage ist ruhig, obwohl mitten in einem Dorf. Am Ort gibt es verschiedene kleine GEschäfte zum Einkaufen der Lebensmittel und auch anderer nützlicher Produkte für Haus und Hof.
Für uns war es aufgrund der frischen Karpatenluft und der Ruhe der Umgebung ein sehr erholsamer Urlaub.

travel period: October 2017

Das kleine alte Bauernhaus wurde vom Besitzer liebevoll wieder hergerichtet und strahlt Gemütlichkeit aus. Der dazugehörige abgeschlossene Garten bietet Platz für Hund oder Kinder. Die Lage bietet einen guten Ausgangspunkt für die verschiedensten Aktivitäten und Tagesausflüge. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die gute Betreuung durch den Vermieter und Mitarbeiter vor Ort - vor allem verschiedenste Serviceleistungen wie Bereitstellung von Grundnahrungsmitteln und die Möglichkeit sich mit ganzen Menüs verwöhnen zu lassen.
