The Holiday home


We offer 6 entirely different holiday rentals in and around the pastoral village of Vale, directly at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains.

Rustic holiday home on a hill slope with a panoramic view of the valley and the wooded mountains. It is located in on the edge of the village, where the only through traffic consists of one or two horse carts bringing in the hay from the nearby hills. Expect sprawling bright rooms, exceptional cleanliness, and the comfortable indoor climate of a rear-ventilated larch paneling.

The holiday chalet provides 152 sqm of living space on two floors for 6 (up to 8) people. The living room (34 sqm) is on the mezzanine floor. It features oak parquet and includes an open kitchen, a fireplace, TV (Astra Satellite), ten seats at two tables, and a balcony.
The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering with a large fridge combo, dishwasher, gas stove, coffee maker and espresso machine, toaster, kettle, spices, and more. The first room (17 sqm), with windows opening to the East, South and West is accessible from both the living room and the outer hallway. The first bathroom (3 sqm) adjoins the living room.
An interior staircase leads to the two bright rooms in the attic, the larger one with a balcony. With their 24 and 32 sqm they can easily be used as a lounge for a larger group. Dormers and windows open in three directions and allow the sun to spread its light across the rooms at any time of day. The view goes out over the vastness of the valley, to the forested mountains and in good weather, all the way up to the snowy peaks of the Fagaras Mountains.
The second bathroom (8 sqm) with a shower, tub, toilet, and washing machine branches off from the hallway between the rooms.
Each room features a double bed, TV, Wi-Fi internet access, infrared panel, and plants. In the largest room, a sofa bed for up to two additional people is available. On arrival you will find the beds freshly made, and towels, soap and shower gel are provided.
The entire interior was chosen with care, including kitchen and sanitation facilities, mattresses, and linen. All furniture, windows, doors and stairs where consistently made to measure.
The solar-assisted central heating is backed up threefold. Either you fire up the water-bearing fireplace in the living room, which supplies all the radiators in the house, or a gas heater and / or electrical infrared panels take over the job.

The two gardens are fenced and adjacent to the surrounding hills. Here you can relax on a covered terrace, grill your steak on the stonewalled barbecue or enjoy the evening by an open fire, proposing a toast to the awakening crickets. Maybe you’ll just sit down under an apple tree, listen to the birds, and let your thoughts drift …

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.

travel period: July 2019

Wir haben zu dritt (2 Erwachsene und 1 Kind/10 J) einen wunderschönen Urlaub in Siebenbürgen verbracht. Casa Zollo und die Betreuung durch den Besitzer waren ein echtes Highlight. Es ist ein ausgesprochen gemütliches, sehr gepflegtes und blitzsauberes Holzhaus mit allem was man für einen Urlaub braucht: sehr schön an einem Hang gelegen mit wunderbarer Aussicht, einer gut eingerichteten Küche (sogar mit meinem geliebten "French Press" Kaffeemacher), 2 Bädern und Schlafzimmern, Balkonen, Grill- und Feuerstelle und viel Platz zum Entspannen. Sogar eine Notfallversorgung nach einen kleinen Ausflugsunfall war vorhanden. Zur Lage: mit dem Auto erreicht man rasch in ca. 8 Minuten den nächstgelegenen Ort mit Supermärkten und einem Markt und die Autobahn zu den sehenswerten Orten in der Umgebung. Wir haben die Tage sehr genossen und können die Unterkunft nur wärmstens weiter empfehlen.
