Description

Nested in an orchard, IN VALE (In the Valley) is a place that allows you to reconnect with nature and human values. It is a place that changes appearance in every season and marvels you with each passing moment.

The dome is the constant that watches discretely over life itself. In the dome or on its terrace enjoying a cup of coffee, reading a book, or practicing yoga are just a few of the activities you can experience.

Squirrels, foxes, deers or pheasants could bother you from time to time! Geodesic domes were invented by Buckminster Fuller.

Domes can be generated from many geometrical figures and ours has an icosahedron as basis (a 20 faces polyhedron) with a diameter of 7m and a height of 4m.

Valea lui Enache (Enache's Valley) is a village at about 8km from Curtea de Arges, the first capital of Wallachia. Coming form Pitesti, on the road to the Transfagarasan, our dome stands on the hill on the left of the Zigoneni dam, in an orchard.


The following are included in the price

Option 2/2 - two persons for two nights - 150eur/night:

  1. Housing in our completely equipped Dome (1 double bed, wood burning fireplace, AC, bathroom).
  2. Towels, pillows and duvet, bed linen and blankets.
  3. Private parking onsite.
  4. Wireless internet.
  5. A welcome drink for two.

  8. Breakfast (8:30-10:30) on our garden patio with set menu. Vegetarians are welcomed! Please announce yourself upon booking. We can also serve breakfast on the dome terrace, on request.

The breakfast is made of:

  • Lettuce and spring onions from our garden

What is forbidden
  • Although we are isolated and the nearest neighbors are quite far, we count on you to keep the noise within the bounds of reason.
  • Smoking is forbidden in the Dome and on its terrace. Smoking is permitted in the orchard, but please do not throw the stubs in the grass. Any damaged property that arise from the breaking this rule will be completely refunded by you.
  • The objects in the Dome are precious, handle them with care as if they were yours.

FAQ
  • Are we safe in the orchard?

Although you are in an orchard and not really in the forest, it is possible to spot squirrels, foxes and does. Occasionally in the evening some wild boars visit us and so we recommend walking through the orchard only in daylight. For the short trips to the car or the terrace we will lend you portable lamps.

  • Can we come with our kids?

Of course! If the children are under three years of age, please let us know before arriving so that we can get a folding bed ready. Kids of more than 6 years old can sleep at the mezzanine. Although the mezzanine does have railings, please ask your kids not to play standing. The playground in the garden, the slide, the swing, the trampoline and the sand house are accessible. As parents you are responsible of how they are used and of the childrenșs safety.

  • What do I take with me?

We have almost everything IN THE VALE, but we recommend you take with you a sweater and adequate footwear for an eventual walk through the woods.

  • What not to take with me?

Food or drinks. Breakfast is included in the accommodation rate. For lunch and dinner we welcome you to try the restaurants in Curtea de Arges. We could help you with some recommendations. Bringing any food with you in the Dome or on the Dome terrace is strictly forbidden. We can organize a barbecue on Saturdays for the persons in the Dome and maximum 2 other visitors. 

  • What can I use?

You have access to the orchard, the barbecue terrace, children playgrounds and Wi-fi.

  • Can I come with my dog or cat?

More than just an accomodation
Oncoiui Remus
This place is more than just an accomodation, it is an entire experience. The view is breathtaking, the dome is very comfy, the hosts are so nice and helpful and the surroundings offer delightful places to discover. A couple of days here will definitely make you forget of the noisy city life.

A daydreaming place where you feel pampered in the middle of nature
MihaiLupoiu MihaiLupoiu
If you want to visit a place so close to Bucharest but where you feel like in another country in a good sense, here is the place. You have nature and luxury at the same time. The view is breathtaking, the place is extrey quiet, there is noone else around. You have everything you need not to miss the comfort of your home, some things are even better than at home. You can recharge your batteries and fully enjoy the feeling of being free. We came to visit with our twin toddler girls and the place is also child friendly. There are a lot of toys in the garden and enough space for everybody. The hosts are extremly helping and welcoming, they help with everything you need and even more. Mrs Nuti is also an excellent cook. She prepared for us delicious food everytime and always something extra for the kids. I recommend this place for romance, family, solo travellers and whoever wants to enjoy some time in an unique and wonderful place!

Mind, Body And Soul Soothing Experience
Radu Barja
We had our 5th wedding anniversary at "La noi - in Vale". Just us 2, as far away as possible from city noise. We were treated to an introspective, absolutely quiet and soul soothing experience! I Hope This Place Never Changes! 1. THE LOCATION is unbelievable. Is one of those HIDDEN GEMS, you only hear about in documentaries. It is hidden through the hills, and trust me, you wouldn't find it without a map. We were standing right on top of it and were not realising. The premises of the tent is the yard of the hosts. The yard itself is absolutely surprising, and arranged with great taste considering where it is hidden. (reminds me of ATRA a little bit) The tent is positioned facing the orchard and the valley. The view from the entire yard is stunning, across the valley, all the way down to Zigoneni Lake and the Zigoneni village on the hill across the lake. During the night, the village lights up, and you have a beautiful night-time light show that you can see while sitting comfortably in the bed, in the middle of the tent. However, you'll want to sit on the wooden deck of the tent throughout the day and night. 2.The tent is clean, with absolutely modern amenities: fully functional bath, with hot shower, air conditioning and a heated stove. (alternatively there's an electric radiator available, which we decided not to use since the stove experience is 30% of the entire experience, especially during cold winters). Tent is insulated, no need to worry from that perspective. 3. The Tent's deck has plenty of space for a chaise-longue a blanket, a hot tea, a book, and that pitch-perfect quiet moment you see in any inspirational movie scene! Breathless! 4. The stove! Chills are running down my spine as i'm writing this review. Sitting near the stove, and having to cater for a fire, so close to the orchard, to the snow outside, is ABSOLUTELY MAGICAL and curative. 5.The food, 100% locally sourced, was absolutely delicious and very far from ordinary (that was another surprise)! Out of comfort, we went for buying the additional meals (lunch and dinner) from the hosts and it was another great surprise! It was obvious the hosts learned a lot of recipes from the vegetarian cuisine, and although we're not vegetarian and we had normal, meat included dishes, you could taste the great flavour and texture combinations usually found in the vegetarian cuisine. Next time we'll go full vegetarian, just to try it out! I think it will be even better! You can probably eat something in the nearby city in Curtea de Arges, but i can guarantee it will not even come close to what the hosts have to offer! BEAR IN MIND, you have to order all your meals before you arrive! 6. The hosts were really friendly. As in "lovely friendly"! They don't permanently live there, only when they have guests. I have a lot of appreciation of the fact that our privacy and alone time was respected rigorously, as we requested minimum interaction, yet all our requests were accommodated and we were not missing anything. 7. Things to improve exist, of course, but really nothing comes top of mind wile writing this review so it's not worth mentioning. Go and focus on the experience and be grateful for it! The whole experience, was ABSOLUTELY perfect! We loved feeling the winter cold in the middle of the orchard, gazing the scenery and charging the batteries to 200%. We loved making the fire and sitting down next to the stove and chat. We enjoyed yoga sessions on the deck (Yes, at 4 degrees, it's brilliant!). We loved the food and the tartes. As a BONUS, i got to spend several hours COMPLETELY alone with my djembe, down in the orchard, at sundown, with nothing but a small forest in front of my eyes! These moments alone were worth the entire trip. TO CONCLUDE: Book it! Book it now! Nevermind the season! Any season works, really! Make sure it doesn't rain so you can enjoy the tent's deck but there's really nothing else that your body, mind and soul needs. You'll see what a truly MINDFUL experience looks and feels like. We'll be returning with our hearts and kids as soon as possible!

A place to visit again and again

Everything is amazing: the village, Valea lui Enache offers you wonderful landscapes, the hosts are very kind and lovely and the dome construction is impressive. Itșs “wow” when you get up in the mornings and see from your bad the fabulous view that is breathtaking: the autumn colors transformed our stay in an excellent opportunity to make relaxation a priority. About food.....itșs very tasty. Ișm still missed the pumpkin pie, my favorite :)
