The place was very cozy, warm and tidy. A spectacular old tile stove was warming the place. Very nice indeed. A very nice place for a stay of a few days in this nice carpatian village. Will be returning with friends to enjoy spring or summer.
This is a quaint, cozy cottage perfectly sized for two. We celebrated our anniversary with a trip to Romania and Casa Vale is the perfect base. Whether interested in culture, handicrafts, rural living, history or hiking everything is within reach. Even in the middle of winter we found plenty to see and enjoy, from inexpensive local food to quaint villages and bustling, though charming, cities (Sibiu, even Sighisoara is within reach).
We stayed in Casa Nicu for a week - and had a great time. The apartment is perfect for 2 people and there's real attention to detail which we were constantly struck by - condiments, washing detergent etc. It's a great base for the Transalpina which we drove a couple of times as well as lots of other villages, lakes etc. We ate food cooked by a local lady for a couple of dinners which were delicious hearty Romanian food. Werner was a great host with lots of tips - he was really helpful when I was planning the trip and then when we were there. It's worth noting that the table outside is for the priority use of Casa Nicu but because it's the only place to sit, it's likely that you will be sharing it with your neighbours. Highly recommended - which we have been to friends.
We found a very clean and nice house with a modern kitchen and all the things you need in a usual household. The landlord was very friendly, helped a lot with some things and we got very quickly through with any question.
It is a great spot to start some nice hikes. Around are lots of medieval castles and beautiful 'saxon' villages. We had a great time there and we will come back one day.

Casa Nicu is a cozy upper-story cottage with everything we needed available. The village is set at the base of the mountains, and we were able to hike up the valley to the sculpture park, as well as walk to neighboring villages. Nicu is very hospitable and made us feel at home. Werner picked us up at our hotel and delivered us to the train station in Sibiu right on time. We enjoyed the delicious home cooked dinners that we ordered and they were delivered on time and hot each night. The cottage had beautiful woodwork throughout. The lovely garden was draped with honeysuckle vines and had a sheltered picnic table. We are on a five month trip and after seeing the sights of the cities for six weeks Casa Nicu was a good place to relax away from the city. Although we enjoy walking, with a car you could explore more of the surrounding villages as well as Sibiu. We met some very nice people and had a wonderful time in the countryside. Highly recommend!
