Great place! I recommend this piece of history and quiet place! The traditional food is made from their own garden! You can also visit a nearby old church that offers you a great view over the village!
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
Simply amazing! Very nice people, a piece of haven!
Viscri 125 is a very nice place, great rooms in saxon style, great services!!!! We are here in a team building and I really recommend this place for small groups (15 pax). Just try it, you will be more than pleased for sure!
We decided to spend 5 days around the New Year's Eve at Viscri 125. While we appreciated the great architectural work and the attention that was paid to the smallest details in terms of decoration, we were disappointed by the service. The 2 ladies (sometimes 3) that cooked the meals, cleaned the place (not the rooms, though), etc. were the only ones in charge and were obviously overwhelmed by the volume of the tasks, as the B&B was fully booked. We only saw the owners of the place on the first day, and, of course, on the last day, when we checked out.
The breakfast was disappointing, again because I expected too much, probably. Instead of local products, half of the stuff was from the supermarket. Dinners were better in this respect, but not always. Desserts were quite disappointing, especially at the New Year buffet, where we had only one type of cake, home-made, but not fresh...Nothing festive. It is true that we were charged the same price as for a regular dinner.
The rooms are nicely decorated, but small and the light is insufficient for reading. Plus the shower was not working properly in our room (no constant pressure and shower curtains too small).The lights are a problem in the common areas, as well. It is probably better in the summer, when you can just go outside and read. So, in the winter, when the days are short, the only thing you can do is to sit in the common areas, but if the house is full, it is difficult to find a quiet place.
All in all, a nice rural project with positive benefits for the whole local community, but for us it failed to deliver. We did not feel like guests, but more like customers. We will not come back.
Viscri is a real-life Saxon farming village to which great care has been dedicated in preserving historic way of life (helped no doubt by publicity from UK Prince Charles owning a village house). Viscri 125 has been developed by a young entrepreneurial Bucharest couple. The lovely rooms are in the renovated old house and a modern communal building has been built at the end of the garden in which super food is served. A real gem. As we were only guests at the time our evening meal was cooked at a local farmhouse - a fascinating insight into rural Romanian life.
Good food good company!We were amazed what this young couple managed to do out of a old saxon house!Lovely !!!!!!!Go there and just enjoy the silence of the place!Let them cook for you while you relax in the garden reading a book!
Gem of a place - amazingly renovated it combines the charms of local design with modern comforts. Situated in the middle of Viscri it's a great location for seeing the sights in the region. Even though we didn't do much else while there, they organise events and trips. The owners were very helpful, answering all of our questions (maybe chatting with us for up to 45 minutes!).
Perfect place to stay and the area is well worth the trip if you want to see a different world.
