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 oldest beech forest of the continent, and hiking towards the mountain pastures you will experience a unique flora and fauna. Alternatively, benefit from our central location in the heart of Romania and explore sights and trips in all directions. Take a break and treat yourself to a place where unspoiled nature meets the breath of the past. ____________________________________________________________. ••• Casa Lopo •••. ... is our latest project with a perceptible cosy atmosphere in the courtyard. The farmhouse offers two rooms, a new bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen for self catering - ideal for families looking for a child-friendly countryside retreat. The farm currently gets a makeover. We repair and dedicate ourselves patiently to details that sometimes wake up from decades of deep sleep. We will preserve the original historic charm as best possible, at the same time providing the minimum of convenience that can be expected even in a traditional holiday farmhouse set in a place where hedgehogs and donkeys cross their paths. The property consists of the dwelling quarters (a plastered wooden house with 3 rooms), a barn with a back garden, a terrace, and a not yet finished annex - 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 for self-catering 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 new 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, which also supplies all radiators in the house via the built-in water pipes. Obviously, our optional services such as breakfast, traditional menus or farm products from the village also apply here. Transfer from Sibiu railway station or airport is included, and one of our cars can be rented on request. While we rebuild and renovate, you will to a certain degree buy a pig in a poke, and the pictures loaded here will be updated only after finishing a construction phase. On the other hand, the reviews of hundreds satisfied guests over the years should reduce the risk of disappointments - see our guestbook - besides, you are welcome to ask us questions anytime. We will gladly update you on the state of affairs and supply you with current photo. (Mai 2018) At a glance ... • holiday farmouse for 4 (up to 6) people • 2 bedrooms with double bed • fully equipped kitchen • new shower room with washing machine • covered terrace in the courtyard • garden with fire pit + barbecue • minimum rental period: 5 nights • extra bed from the 5th person: 10 €/night ____________________________________________________________. ••• 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. • 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. • 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. ____________________________________________________________. .More

We had an absolutely amazing time at the Cash Lopo in Vale. The cottage itself has been really sensitively restored and is intimate and warm and a million miles away from the identikit hotels of modern tourism. Few places left in Europe can evoke anything...More

Thank you Gavin. Your enthusiastic words remind me of my look with which I discovered the village for the first time. That was many years ago, and of course not all is magical and a fairytail. But no matter where I am, after a while...More

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
Vale is located close to the small town of Saliste with bus (2 km away) and train station (4 km). There is no public transport in the village. A car you can hire at the Sibiu airport or with us. 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. 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.
