Travelled in June as two families, therefore booking 2 different houses. The location is absolutely outstanding, easy to reach and close to small shops in the village. The traditional houses do benefit of modern technology, such as fully equipped kitchen, hot running water and indoor toilet. The team takes all the efforts in order to make the guests feel welcomed... More

Staying in the Village Hotel in Breb goes down as one of the most extraordinary holidays in years. 7 of us including kids comfortably stayed in one of the beautifully reconstructed wooden houses - thoughtfully decorated in traditional Romanian village style with plenty of space to relax in and outside around the fire place. 7 days wasn't enough time to...

It is hard to describe in words how much it is that the people running a hotel makes a stay special or not. All the more so for intimate properties like this. Set in an incomparably peaceful spot in the sleepy village of Breb in the wonderful Maramures region of Transylvania, a million miles from the Dracula jamboree that exists... More

Romanians do not understand restoration and preservation. All they want to do is knock everything down and copy what they see on Western Television. Well Penny and her husband have reversed the trend. The accommodation is in cabins that have been deconstructed and re-located in Breb but with the addition of 20th century plumbing. There is nothing to do here... More

We have just returned from an amazing stat at the charming Village Hotel. Owners, Penny and Duncan couldn't have been more helpful. They ferried us round, made sure we filled our days up with all sorts of wonderful outings and even guided us on amazing walks. Breb itself is charming and you feel as though you have got out of...

The hosts Penny and Duncan have put in an enormous amount of work to make their vision materialise and the result is an exceptionally place to stay in beautiful surroundings with wonderful hosts. Penny is just amazing and runs the place adeptly taking enormous trouble to make sure your stay is as good as it can possibly be. She even... More

Places such as this are very rare as it takes an amazing amount of vision and more importantly hard work and as such we feel privileged to have stayed here. We were lucky that the owner of the establishment we stayed with in Bucharest recommended we make the effort to visit this region and stay at this hotel and I... More

Three of us were on a photography tour with Duncan; two of us in Casa Veche. Look at the photographs as I can't describe the unique houses adequately except to say they are full of character, very comfortable with fresh eggs, bread and cheese for breakfast. Penny and Julia could hardly do more for us and were invaluable in pointing... More

We waited two years to make this trip and it didn't disappoint! Penny was an absolute STAR, organising everything with ease. We had dinner with the Shepherd Family and another with a local village family ... do not miss either experience! The welcome everywhere was warm and genuine and we would definitely not have found these places/people ourselves. The accommodation... More

I didnt actually made it to maramures, but Penelope (the host) was extremelly helpful! Every thing I asked she tried to help (I asked help for tours in maramures) and even offered a room upgrade when she saw that the original room was not empty.
