IN VALE – A glamping experience near Transfagarasan

Created with Sketch. Valea lui Enache, Romania View on map

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.

  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:

    and milk are freshly “procured” the same morning and sweet or salted cheese come
    from our neighbor Gabi with a Holstein cow.

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.

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.

As parents you are responsible of how they are used and of the children’s 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. Coming soon

What can I use?

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

5.0 "Un loc cu totul si cu totul deosebit"

Este probabil una dintre cele mai speciale cazari in care am stat in Romania. Senzatia de a te trezi in fata livezii linistite si de a te culca sub cerul instelat este absolut minunata. In ceea ce priveste mancarea, Elena ne-a depasit toate asteptarile cu niste preparate delicioase, proaspete si deosebite. Este o experienta perfecta de glamping datorita intimitatii, naturii inconjuratoare, relaxarii si nu in ultimul rand, datorita confortului din dom.

Un colt de rai unde am avut sentimentul ca suntem in vizita la ce-i mai buni prieteni din copilarie. Gazdele ne-au rasfatat in fiecare zi nu doar cu delicatese ala Michelin***; au stiut sa ne ofere momente privilegiate. Cazarea in dom - o experienta unica pentru iubitorii de relaxare intr-un cadru feeric indiferent de anotimp. Va multumim si va imbratisam cu multa recunostinta. Abia asteptam sa ne revedem.

5.0 "A daydreaming place where you feel pampered in the middle of nature"

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!

5.0 "Mind, Body And Soul Soothing Experience"

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!

5.0 "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. It’s “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…..it’s very tasty. I’m still missed the pumpkin pie, my favorite :)

5.0 "Unique place"

It was our first experience of this kind of vacation and it was unique. The location takes you to another land where you've never been before, although it seems very familiar. After the first night in the dome we felt that we had recharged our depleted batteries and that everything had reset. It's a beautiful day in a story you don't want to leave. The food is delicious, the atmosphere created is special. This experience must be tried and necessary repeated.

We spent beautiful days in a special place, with special people and a very beautiful view. The interior of the dome is arranged very comfortably with all the necessary utilities. The dome is located in a quiet orchard that helps you relax. The dishes are very delicious. It is a place to recommend.

5.0 "Most relaxing glamping"

Definitely a 5 out of 5 stars choice with this location. It's a beautiful, private, cozy, and relaxing place. We visited with our toddler, who had the most amazing time there, but I can't wait for next occasion to visit without kids. I would suggest to choose meal arrangements at the Dome instead of going out, because Mrs Nuti is the best cook in town.

5.0 "So peaceful"

I wanted to get away from the city and spend a few days in nature and this amazing place came to my attention. I didn’t know what to expect or what will we do there for 4 days BUT I can tell you that it was the most valuable time I had with my family and all the kind people we met there. The food was amazing! I really felt the love that the food was cooked with; very delicious and local. I thank you Ms. Nuti for all your effort. The peace I felt there is out of this world. Me and my family played card, took walks in the orchard, got to meet some super kind neighbors; it was amazing, the entire experience. Thank you for everything and look forward to return soon. Special thanks to Mr. Ilie! The conversations we had really changed my life (not kidding).

5.0 "The most blissful place"

I stayed here for two nights with my husband and I have to say, if you're looking for a quiet, romantic getaway, to connect with nature and recharge your batteries, this is the place to go! You can experience a wonderful sunrise as well. The dome is located in an orchard (you can even pick your own fruits), so it's very private. Everything is quite rustic-chic, with some modern touches. The fact that you have a full bathroom inside the dome is very convenient! They also offer a ping-pong table and darts for free, so that's a plus. And the hosts are very helpful and kind, their breakfasts are super yummy! Will definitely come back.

5.0 "Piece of Heaven"

My family and I had the opportunity to stay at “In Vale” dome for a weekend. It was the greatest getaway we had in Romania so far. This place is Heaven!!! We’ve been there with our little toddler and even for her everything was perfect. Morning time there was the best, watching the sunrise from the cosiness of our bed was something we cannot explain into words... the light, the autumn landscape we had in front of our eyes... priceless 😍! Nea’ Ilie and his wife, Tanti Nuti were absolutely lovely and accommodating. They were great hosts and Tanti Nuti cooked some delicious dishes for us (we came back with 2 extra kilos🙈) Everything we needed and more was offered to us! The most relaxing and beautiful experience for us so far. Thank you, Elena & family!

5.0 "Heaven 😍"

If you’re looking for a quiet place away from all the hubbub and tourists to relax, then this is your place! We had an amazing time ‘In Vale’, a wonderful Glamping experience. Every little detail is perfectly thought out and the space couldn’t be more perfect. The way the light fell into the space, the environmental design and architecture – all of it is impressive. The hosts were super accommodating and kind and we had everything we could’ve possibly needed. Thank you for everything! I would highly recommend staying here!
