“Piece of Heaven”
Reviewed October 30, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

In a heavenly landscape, but close enough to the city(only 20km from Sibiu), Villa Crina is the perfect place to stay if you want to relax in front of the fireplace or if you want to check out the surroundings. Transalpina, Sibiu, Cindrel Mountains, you will have no time to get bored.

The villa had everything one can think of, from fully equipped kitchen, to a magnificent fireplace, grill, large rooms.

The host made sure that we had everything we needed.

I highly recommend it and we will be back for sure.

“Best holidays ever!”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The house is great .
Located in a beautiful village close to Sibiu. You can do several daytrips to beautiful places from there.
Casa Crina is clean, perfectly equipped and a very lovely place.
The housekeepers are very friendly and helpful. They arranged a spectacular daytrip to the mountains where we had a barbeque together. It was an amazing experience.
The people of the village are nice and gave us a warm welcome.
Our children loved to play with the other kids and from time to time someone took them on a ride with a horse drawn vehicle.
Thanks to everybody for these great holidays!

“Fantastic holiday in an extremely well appointed house”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were 3 adults and stayed in Casa Crina for 5 nights. The house was immaculately clean and had everything we could possibly need - including an excellent outside grill for when we wanted to eat in.

Vale is a genuine Romanian experience, away from tourists and homogenised Western culture. We loved the whole experience of going to the village shop and talking to the locals. Be aware that this is a rustic village, and the road to the accommodation is accordingly rustic (all part of the experience!)

the countryside here is beautiful and the people are genuinely friendly and happy. One disappointment to us was that the Transfargan Hwy was not yet open, but we did expect that this would be so. However, the drive along the Transalpina to Sugtag was fantastic.

Hi Marion,
Thanks for your words of appreciation. The Transfagarasan opened three days after your departure, but in my opinion, with the Transalpina you had the best alternative. This highway is just not as famous since opened to traffic only two years ago.
Hope to see you again later in life,
Werner

“Gorgeous house in idyllic setting.”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We were 2 families with young children sharing the four-bedroom Casa Crina for a week. What a marvelous stay! This area of Romania has so much lovely scenery and character, and for a group who has seen some of the world (Africa, Asia, Europe), we were all happy to discover someplace truly new. The children had lots of space to play, and the barbecue and kitchen areas were well equipped. Beds were comfortable and rooms spacious. The porch was our "hub" and where we also enjoyed some local cuisine, cooked to order by Adriana. Nearby Saliste has a very good market every Monday, and the area has lots of trails for walks--including to a hidden swimming pool! Highly recommended, and we want to return.

“Great Holidays”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Me and my family stayed in Casa Crina during our May holiday in Romania.
I would highly recommend this accommodation, it is well equipped, tastefully furnished and very clean.
The setting in the village of Vale is beautiful, the bedrooms and garden overlooking the mountains with easy access to most of the tourist attractions Transylvania has to offer. There are meal options available at reasonable price or fully equipped kitchen if you prefer to prepare your own food.
The owners have been very helpful throughout our stay, we have been offered the airport transfers and provided with the rental car.
If we ever come back to Romania we will definitely be staying at Casa Crina again

“Great location”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed as a family (young children) for 10 days in August at Casa Crina and didn't regret our choice.
Werner, Nicu and Adriana form a great team, always helpful, good advice and cheerful.
The house was more than clean (and we have high standards) well equipped and Adriana's food delicious.
There are lot of things to do and discover in the region.
You won't regret it should you choose it as a destination. We didn't!

“Great Family-Holidays”

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful stay in Case Crina in Vale with our four kids and friends. The house was beautiful restored. We were quite impressed by the quality of the workmanship and the high standard of all facilities. We loved the daily cheese omelette prepared by Adriana and our late evenings, sitting at the fireplace. We did some great hiking tours around the Fagarash mountains. We will never forget our experience in a High Ropes Course near Sibiu. Our trips down to Sibiu, a 20 minute drive from Casa Crina, made our holidays perfect. We really enjoyed exploring the beautiful historic town of Sibiu with their interesting museums, cafes, historical buildings and restaurants. Thank you Adriana, Werner and Nico for your effort to make us feel like home and much more.
