At Casa Vale we created a small village of a few scattered traditional houses, located in a special ambience of the traditional Romanian world. Here you will feel the connection with nature, you will gaze at the alpine pastures, and your neighbors will be sheeps and horses grazing undisturbed. In the village surroundings you will find a beautiful coniferous forest and also the oldest european beech forest.
Taste the local food, prepared following old recipes, and spend the night in authentic traditional houses. We offer you the perfect houses for couples, families or groups of friends. The traditional interiors have been adjusted to contemporary comfort needs, but without losing their authenticity. There are comfortable beds, free wi-fi internet, TVs, fully equipped kitchens, well-equipped bathrooms and comfortable terraces.
You will find us in a special rural area, in the middle of Transylvania. Once you have crossed the high mountain peaks and the beech forests, you will arrive in a most fascinating place, almost hidden from the eyes of the world, with painting like haystacks and beautiful nature. You will be neighbors with the forest and the flocks of sheep that graze here every day.
We will just mention a few things about the history of Vale village, so you know why your chosen holiday destination will be a special one. For many centuries, shepherding had been the main activity of the people in the village. We are glad that you will have the opportunity to find here a remnant of that past, which you will be able to admire at its true value.
What adds yet another significance to the place are the traditions and the Dacian-Roman architecture in Sibiu’s surrounding area, and not the Saxon ones which can befound in the rest of Transylvania. There are only a few places in the world where traditions are kept intact. Therefore, thanks to the fortified churches, the traditional crafts and the local gastronomy unique in the world, Sibiu’s surrounding area has been declared an European Destination of Excellence.
There are 7 traditional houses and mountain huts grouped under the logo Casa Vale. We will present the most emblematic ones, while the rest will remain to be discoverd as soon as possible. We are here to help and we will be very happy to do so should you feel like tasting local products prepared on the farm, according to old traditions: fresh milk, sheep/goat white cheese, mashed vegetables, honey, homemade jam, pickles, wine and brandy.
The SpaceWe invite you to Casa Nicu, Casa Pelu and Casa Lopo. Each has its own bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and terrace. They can accommodate couples, families with children, and larger groups of up to 6 people.
Here are just a few good tips for a unique holiday in Transylvania: go hiking in the coniferous and beech forest, where you will find unique species of flora and fauna, walk the streets in the village and gaze at the flocks of sheep and the horses strolling by, while observing the traditional way of life of the local people.
Explore the Apuseni Mountains, where you can admire unique landscapes, caves and impressive underground galleries.
Drive on the most fascinating roads in Europe, Transfagarasan and Transalpina.
Half an hour drive from Casa Vale you will discover the medieval city of Sibiu. The main tourist attractions are: the Liars’ Bridge, The Small Square, The Big Square and climbing the stairs in the Council Tower of Sibiu for a splendid view of the old city, unchanged by the present. Discover the museums where a 2,000 year old mummy stays hidden in a sarcophagus.
Go to the largest museum in Europe, the `Astra` Museum of Traditional Folk Civilization, to feel the pulse of the past.

A not-to-be-missed experience is the cart ride in the mountains where you will be served cauldron stew, prepared according to the shepherds’ recipe.
