We really enjoyed our stay here. The owners were very helpful. We arrived later in the evening but that was not a problem. We were greeted with wine, beer and homemade cheese!
The place is very well appointed and Spotless. We found the location to be a good one for the trip we had planned. The little village is quiet and the countryside it is located on is lovely. The grounds are beautifully taken care of. There is a nice common area that we utilized a few times for outside games in the evening. The are for cars is secure as are the entire grounds.
We did one of the horse drawn cart excursions which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our host was a lovely man and we really enjoyed visiting with him and his young adorable son.
The washing machine is the nicest and easiest to operate we have ever had in Europe. Lighting and water pressure, as well as outlets were top notch.
This place was really large for just the two of us but we wanted the covered outdoor space to ourselves that this offered. And that space was nice on a few of the rainy days we had. This would be wonderful for families or friends traveling together, bedrooms were very spacious.
A huge, huge storm rolled through and the power went out. We waited a few hours and then called Nicu. He was there right away, letting us know that it was an electrical problem most of the village was experiencing. There were candles and we used those once it began to get dark. The power was restored shortly there after and there were no problems because of the outage.
We highly, highly recommend this place. Nice location, very clean, great owners, what more can one ask?
Fantastic house about 20 kms from Sibiu. It is superbly appointed by Werner, the German owner (speaks good English) and his friendly local assistants. Everything is beautifully designed, with plush bathrooms, an excellent kitchen and dining area, two balconies with great views, a lovely covered outdoor dining area in the delightful large garden with fruit trees and nice planting. High quality self catering of this type is almost impossible to find in Romania, so this is perfect for those who want a break from eating out every night and/or living out of a hotel room. Great for a family too, and there is an entirely separate downstairs apartment which could be combined for two families. Casa Zollo is a great base for touring this part of Transylvania - the city of Sibiu, including the superb ASTRA outdoor folklore museum just outside Sibiu, fabulous "Saxon" fortified churches at Calnic, Cisnadie, Biertan etc, the Transalpina highway and much more. The nearby village of Saliste (about 2 km) has several shops, a small supermarket, daily market stalls and a super little outdoor pizza place. Sibiu is about 20 minutes away if you want the full hypermarket range. We loved the house, the garden, and the whole area - highly recommended
Casa zollo has been perfectly designed as a holiday rental from which to explore the Carpathians. Spacious, comfortable with all you need to self cater. Also a fantastic BBQ area in the garden. The back up staff provided us with any local foodstuffs we needed and the local town of Saliste is charming.
This is such a beautiful house - gorgeous wooden furniture and flooring, and very well equipped kitchen and bathrooms. We really enjoyed the fire pit in the garden and eating outside. We also ordered some food in from one of the women in the village - it was great to try out local recipes. We also enjoyed the goats' cheese and local rustic wine. The beautiful, quiet village of Saliste is a couple of kilometres away ans Sibiu, the bigger - also very beautiful - town is an easy drive. Definitely recommended.
