• CASA PELU • houses the completely refurbished living quarters of an abandoned farm - ideal for families looking for a child-friendly countryside retreat. The farmhouse is situated in the pastoral village of Vale, directly at the feet of the Carpathian Mountains. On the one hand, far away from the pulse of time, on the other hand just around the corner from Sibiu, the European Capital of Culture 2007. A good choice for whoever enjoys something special and wants to add a touch of Transylvanian serenity to their vacation experience.
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...

We absolutely loved Casa Pelu and loved the village of Vale. It’s as good as it looks. While the house has all modern comforts, it has been renovated with great sensitivity and love for the tradition and style of the area, and respect for the environment. So its cosy,- lots of wood, a beautiful tiled stove, skylights and a little...

Management response:

Thanks Dorry, you and your compañeras were wonderful guests. I think every lessor dreams of such tenants, always accurate, modest and reliable. You're always welcome whenever it pulls you back to Transylvania - then with good working Internet connection. You had bad luck with the thunderstorms, but now we installed a new wi-fi router and solved the problem. Best wishes,...

I stayed in Casa Pelu with my teenager just before Easter 2014 and had a wonderful stay. The caretaker Nicu is very helpful and friendly, as were all the lovely people we met during our stay in the country. The house is very clean, warm and comfortable and is located in a beautiful little village at the foot of a...

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
The village of Vale is located close to the small town of Saliste with bus (2 km away) and train station (4 km away). There is no public transport in the village. That's why we recommend a car, that you can hire at the Sibiu airport or directly with us.
Car advised
How to get there
