Casa Duse is nothing fancy. It offers the tourist just what he needs according to the Maslow' s hierarchy and nothing more. Decent food prepared by the hosts, good fresh sheets for a good night sleep, hot water for a shower, decent toilet, possibly a small TV, but that's it.
However, every time I go there, the urge of climbing those mountains ahead of me (yes, some rooms have a view, too) is bigger and more important than everything else. Cartisoara is the nearest village of Transfagarasan, and Casa Duse is the friendliest place in the area for bike-lovers. There are cyclists' meetings in summer and winter also and guess where they choose to stay? Some love the tent, some love Casa Duse. After a good night sleep and a decent breakfast, the mountains are waiting for us! We hop on our bikes and we start riding.
