••• CASA NICU •••

The Methuselah among our holiday 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. Viewed from the outside, this farmhouse is certainly not the only eye-catcher in Transylvania. But whoever crosses the threshold will feel and see its uniqueness. We handled every square meter with attention to detail and respect towards its builders and the traditional style of the area.

The living quarters are located upstairs. A staircase leads out to the hallway, which was added to the house in a typical way. Both the shower room (2 sqm) and the eat-in kitchen (14 sqm) are entered through the hallway.
The kitchen is completely equipped for self-catering, with a fridge, gas stove, coffee maker, and espresso machine, as well as a toaster, kettle, spices, washing machine and more. Upon request, we provide you with breakfast, traditional menus or farm products from the village.
The room (18 sqm) is entered through the kitchen. It features a double bed, TV set (Astra Satellite), Wi-Fi internet access, and plants. Three windows open the room and the view onto the village’s rooftops. An extra bed is available. On arrival, you will find the bed freshly made, and hand and bath towels, shower gel, and soap are also provided.
The entire interior was chosen with care and is of high quality, including kitchen and sanitation facilities, linen, and mattress. To heat the rooms, you use the water-bearing tiled stove that also supplies all the radiators in the premises. Additionally, an electrical infrared panel will start up at no additional costs for you.

The enclosed courtyard is a leafy feast for the eyes. Here you can relax on a covered terrace, uncork a bottle of wine or unpack the card game. Or walk a few steps on the hillside above the village, enjoy the vastness of the valley, and you’ll already find yourself on the way up to the mountain meadows, surrounded by a healthy mixed forest.

• Farmhouse for 2 (up to 3) people
• 1 room, 1 eat-in kitchen, 1 shower room

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.

Hallo,
wir waren zu zweit 10 Tage in Vale, in einer sehr nett und geschmackvoll eingerichteten Wohnung. Dort hat es an nichts gefehlt. Sehr angenehm, dass in der Wohnung Karten der Umgebung lagen, so konnten wir nahe Ziele in Natur und Kultur erkunden. Dort, um Sibiu herum und um Saliste, gibt es wirklich viel zu entdecken.
Außerdem fanden wir es toll, Essen bestellen zu können. Dieses kam warm und zur abgemachten Zeit auf den Tisch. Super!
Die Gastgeber waren freundlich, immer hilfsbereit und zuverlässig.
Genossen haben wir auch die dörfliche Ruhe. Der Hahn kräht morgens. Sonst nichts zu hören von Autos, Maschinen etc.
Erholsam!
Gerne wieder....
viele Grüße
B.B.

Ein fast magischer Ort

from Sandra L. from 04103 Leipzig

5 5 5 5 5

travel period: August 2018


die Ausstrahlung des Ortes Vale , wie das mit viel liebevoller Sorgfalt restaurierte alte Bauernhaus strahlen wirklich eine gewisse Ruhe aus welche sich auf uns überträgt.
Auch das super freundliche, hilfsbereite Team trägt sehr zu dieser Atmosphäre mit bei.
Hier fühlt man sich nicht als lästiger Tourist sondern als willkommener Gast.
Es gibt uns das Gefühl, so kann behutsamer Tourismus funktionieren ohne daß eine Dorfstruktur dadurch zerstört
wird.
Wir haben viele Wanderungen direkt vom Haus aus in die wunderbare Natur unternommen.
In der bestens eingerichtet Küche konnten wir am Abend die auf dem Bauern Markt in Shamesti gekauften regionalen Leckereien kochen.
Zuvor noch feines frisches Quellwasser geholt.
Was will man mehr.. vielleicht bleiben?!
Danke Euch, wir wünschen Euch weiter viel Freude bei Eurer Arbeit.
Wir können Euer wundervolles Domiziel nur weite empfehlen, wobei ein wenig ein Geheimtipp sollte es schon bleiben!
Sandra und Wilfried
