Interaction with guests
We live in Vale and have joined together in a family-type construction company, which seven holiday cottages were built by. After eight years of work we cast the trowels and planning aside for a while and took a deep breath. We care for you as a team. In case of problems or questions you can always get in touch. Furthermore, we might have one or two tips at hand for you, but we also master the art of discreet retreat. Click on the link below and you get the perfect overview of our other accommodations in Vale. We provide self catering cottages for every taste and size of your travel group: rustic villas and cosy cottages with little to full comfort, studio-apartments for singles and couples, a mountain cabin at the edge of civilization.

We had an absolutely amazing time at the Cash Lopo in Vale. The cottage itself has been really sensitively restored and is intimate and warm and a million miles away from the identikit hotels of modern tourism. Few places left in Europe can evoke anything...More

Thank you Gavin. Your enthusiastic words remind me of my look with which I discovered the village for the first time. That was many years ago, and of course not all is magical and a fairytail. But no matter where I am, after a while...More

About the neighborhood
You just have to leave the cottage and you wander through the oldest beech forest in Europe. The historic old town of Sibiu is only 20 km away, and via the nearby motorway you can quickly reach the Dracula Castle, Sighisoara or fortified churches in every second village in Transylvania.
Breakfast and traditional menus are served by our cook directly on the table. Alternatively you can choose between two good restaurants 2-3 km away and pizza from the stone oven, which is also delivered.
There is a children's playground and a small grocery store at the village square. The town of Saliste 2 km away offers more shops, a farmer's market and an ATM cash machine. Whatever you miss here can be found in Sibiu in retail stores, or supermarkets.
Getting around
Vale is located close to the small town of Saliste with bus (2 km away) and train station (4 km). There is no public transport in the village. A car you can hire at the Sibiu airport or with us.
A tarmac road touches on the village, but in large parts, it’s cobblestone roads and dirt trails leading up into the wooded hills. Thus, traditional structures and straightforward hospitality still hold up in Vale. Horses, cows and goats are still part of the village landscape, and the farmers take up their scythes and plant corn, potatoes, and vegetables to provide for the winter.
Heists and highway robberies are tales from the long-gone years of turmoil following the political change in Romania, and Count Dracula obviously exists only in movies.
