Potcoava Mountain Hideaway: Mountain Horse Ranch

Created with Sketch. Potcoava Mountain Hideaway, Runcu, Romania View on map


Potcoava Mountain Hideaway is a horse ranch which hosts a certified equestrian center HorseDream Germany, with authorized instructors and very well-behaved horses.

You will find here 13 double rooms with their own bathroom, restaurant, bar, living room, meeting room and SPA, sized according to our booking capacity. All our rooms are identical in size. 8 of our 13 rooms are family rooms with king-size beds 180 X 200 cm and a bunk bed for 2 children. When you book your stay, we are asking you to specify how many children you bring and how old they are so that we can find the best room for you.

Inside our equestrian center you will have the opportunity to start horse riding (adults and children) and practise the knowledge you gained while you horseback ride into the forests that surround us. The horses are Haflinger breed, originating from Tirol mountains, they are very gentle and suited for the hilly-mountain regions, beginners and children.

Important details

Bedding and towels will be changed for free after three nights of accommodation. If you consider to be necessary, we can change them at any time for a price.

Even though the check-in starts from 15:00, you are welcomed to come earlier, you can enjoy the view and the activities. And we are happy to have you after you check-out. The check-in and check-out hours only give us enough time to clean and tidy the rooms.

It is important to mention that you will not find TVs in your rooms. We think that the view and the forest sounds will substitute the TV programs.

To keep the inside clean, we decided that interior shoes are necessary. So please bring slippers/ interior shoes or accept the slippers we offer. We are in the middle of nature, surrounded by forest and it is impossible to return to the house with clean shoes.


Here, at Potcoava, we have a menu of the day which we try to adapt to our guests’ demand. It is important to know that we cannot serve you „a la carte”.

We mostly cook traditional Romanian food, specific to the period you are coming and it is cooked the day it is served. We try to not cook fat or fried food.

Route to Potcoava

No matter what direction you are coming from, remember that the access to our guest house is through the village of Brebu, Dambovita county. So, if you use a navigation app, you must know that the passing point is the village of Brebu, Dambovita county.

We mention this because on all maps there is a paved county road 712A which looks to be going to us, but, unfortunately, this road is not paved and will not take you to us.

The right route to Potcoava is paved up to our gate and it is suitable for every vehicle.
