Take just the mountain creek passing by the house, the incredible landscapes during walks starting and finishing at the house, the abundant presence of warm colors used inside the villa, the fabulous view from the double Jacuzzi located in the roof attic between two large windows overlooking the Carpathian Mountains, the orange and lime green pure cotton bedding and towels which come from our favourite producer, the pillows and the eiderdowns, filled with natural down, the extremely comfortable mattresses, the radio-CD-MP3 next to EACH double bed, the recently installed WIFI, the thermostatic taps installed in all shower cabins or the large wooden cuhioned garden swing. These and many other features speak for what the main goal behind this villa has been: to supply pleasure, relaxation and peace of mind. We have always asked for feed back from our 'most spoiled' guests' - from Switzerland, France, Austria the UK, New Zealand or the U.S., trying to find out what they felt could be improved and for quite some time now...no suggestions. That is maybe because this house was planned by us for many years as our own dream-mountain-vacation-house, gathering our ideas, designs and objects from all over the world.More

Beautiful house in a stunning setting right by Dracula's castle. Great for families!
This was a very special house - very cool design yet homely. Lots of room to spread out, plenty of bathrooms with an amazing communal table where we would gather round every evening. Bonus hot tub with a picture window too. Big deck outside with table tennis table and a small stream you could follow up the mountains - snow topped when we were there in April. It's a complete break from city life - though there is a beautiful medieval city - Brasov - nearby if you feel like shopping or a good dinner. Also lots of countryside activities - adventure park in the woods, bears, horse and cart rides. The owner has complied a brilliant list of things to do locally. Great place to switch off would definitely return!

Silvester
Wir haben das Haus von Dinu über Silvester 3 Tage bewohnen dürfen. Der Gastgeber antwortet sehr schnell und ausführlich auf Anfragen. Ebenfalls erhält man ein ausführliches Dokument zugesendet mit wirklichen ALLEN wichtigen Informationen rund um das Haus und die Umgebung. Das Haus entspricht allen versprochenen Standards und sieht identisch aus wie auf den Fotos. Es ist optimal für 8 Personen und wurde gerade in der kalten Jahreszeit wirklich gut beheizt (was nicht selbstverständlich ist). Das Haus verfügt im Dachgeschoss über einen Jacuzzi der einmal pro Tag aufgrund der Wassermenge benutzt werden kann. Die Sauberkeit im Haus ist ausgezeichnet und ebenfalls die Ausstattung. Wir bewohnen des Öfteren Ferienhäuser/Wohnung in unterschiedlichen Ländern und dies war bis jetzt das Erste wo wirklich nichts gefehlt hat (Spülmittel, Seife im Badezimmer, diverse Tassen/Geschirr Töpfe, Waschmaschine mit Waschmittel...). Daher ein wirklich großes Lob an Dich Dinu. AUSGEZEICHNET! Ebenfalls wurde nach dem Aufenthalt ein Feedback eingeholt und auch darauf reagiert, wie der Aufenthalt war. Das Haus kann ich anstandslos weiter empfehlen besonders für nicht-rumänische Gäste ist Dinus Vorbereitung wirklich vorbildlich und nutzvoll. Weiter So! Lg Ricarda und Florin

Quiet chalet retreat in Bran
We spent a pleasant week in this chalet, which comfortably accommodated 2 families. The property is well located for sightseeing and walking. Both the owner and caretaker were very helpful and knowledgable.

A wonderful stay at Casa Heidi
We, a family group of 11, enjoyed Casa Heidi greatly. It was built and designed by Dinu who also operates it. He was hugely helpful in preparations before the trip and constantly "accompanied us" online when required while we were in Romania. He provided a comprehensive and accurate description of the house and its facilities as well as a complete guide of what to do, where to visit, where to eat and shop and how to get around. He was available all the time we were there and always prepared to help and provide ideas or solutions. Without these, our holiday would not have been the same. Casa Heidi is a spacious, fully equipped and tastefully furnished villa. The presentation on the website provides a clear and reliable picture of the house. It is situated in a quiet area "hidden behind a hill", within the picturesque village of Bran, with a clear fresh stream running by and a huge national park within walking distance. "Dracula's Castle" is close by too, as are other tourist sites. Restaurants and supermarkets are also a few minutes away by car. We were all very comfortable had a great holiday. Highly recommended!

Nice house, beautiful region
We visited Vila Heidi twice in the past four years, on both occasions in spring. It is a great place to have a good rest and to explore the beautiful region. The house is in Bran, off the main road, close to nature, but also to Bran Castle and the local amenities. The location allowed us to visit the near-by villages and to make day-trips to Brasov and Sibiu. It is ideal for a larger group with an open plan kitchen-living room, en-suite bedrooms, and a nice terrace where we could enjoy our breakfast in the sun. The owners are very helpful, and provided lots of useful information.

Casa Hiedi- beautiful, relaxing, comfortable, highly recommended
We stayed in Casa Hiedi for a week in July. The house is modern, comfortable, clean,had all the facilities we needed and much more. Situated among the green hills of Bran, and all you see is nature around you. Mircea helped us with everything we wanted and made us feel at home. We can't wait to come back and highly recommend Casa Heidi to everyone.

Lovely village house surrounded by nature at it's best
My family (2 adults and 2 kids 5+9) stayed at the house for a week during August 15. The house is just beautiful - simple and practical design, very cosy and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, the living room full of areas to sit read and relax, or for the kids to play around. The garden was inviting to play ball with the kids, or just to sit in the sun and enjoy the sound of the little nearby stream. The rooms are convenient, the beds comfortable and there is a bathroom in every room. The house is well maintained, clean, and visited daily by a local guy who takes care of everything necessary. The area surrounding the house is just beautiful - you are surrounded by green meadows, forest and mountains. We all enjoyed taking short hikes around the house and feeling the nature. Overall, the kids and adults alike loved the house, and we spent a great week, which included one day we were rained in, which we didn't mind at all since we just enjoyed hanging around. One of the best vacation houses I've ever rented, and I highly recommend it. Yaniv

We can only wish for such guests for as many more years as we will continue to share our house. Thank you for your stay, thank you for the way you left the house: clean and tidy. For us, having guests like you is a pleasure, also for a selfish reason : ) - we cannot be there as much as we wish, so guiding you from a distance, booking for you, checking up opening ours, occasionally translating for you "live" (thank you, whatsapp!) is a great sublimation to the actual joy of being there ourselves... Looking forward to see you again!

Exceeded all expectations just wish we'd stayed longer
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Transylvania in general and Casa Heidi in particular. Pretty much everywhere we went, and everything we did, was much better even than we'd anticipated. Casa Heidi made a great base and the walk up the valley from the house was magical. The scenerey was so good you could hardly believe it, and the odd passing horse-drawn cart just completed the picture. The guide to the locality was very useful and the house was very comfortable. We slept well after viewing the night sky, which was so full of stars, not to mention the occasional distant sound of wolves howling. Mircea was very friendly & helpful, and we had amusing conversations in a mixture of French, Romanian & English. The jacuzzi was a bonus too. We very much enjoyed Bran Castle, the Bear Sanctuary, Zarnesti Gorge, Sigishoara and walking in the mountains. The children didn't want to leave, which I could understand, and in fact my 16 year old son said it was the best holiday he'd ever been on. We would very much like to return, as, though we were there for 10 days, we still ran out of time and missed exploring quite a few more beautiful looking places.

A home away from home!
After a long journey by train and then by taxi we arrived in Bran and were welcomed to our 'home' for a week. A gorgeous house surrounded by fields, beautiful scenery, the sounds of a babbling stream and tinkling cow bells. After we had wandered through the house, with explanations from our guide regarding all operations of the kitchen, heating, bathrooms, bedding and how to operate the spa on the top floor, we quickly settled into the relaxing feel of our home. The home is well equipped if you wish to prepare your own meals, with all the necessary kitchen items. Rooms are warm, spacious and very comfortable. All linen is provided. The spa on the top floor, accessed by a ladder from the bedrooms, was certainly a draw card for us, and well used. If you need time to relax from your busy trip, then lying in the roomy spa, overlooking the green hills and fields is certainly the way to go. We did not have our own transport and although the home is close to the township, it was limiting when we wished to travel further afield. There are however buses that travel regularly to nearby Brasov and taxis too are a great alternative for sightseeing. A 15 minute walk to the centre of the township revealed the imposing Bran Castle, overlooking the goings on in the town. Well worth a visit, the many rooms and hallways in the castle have been lovingly restored, and you can wander through out the castle and appreciate the views of Bran and the countryside from many different aspects. Correspondence through emails regarding payment was easy and information given by our host regarding activities in the area was appreciated. There was a bit of confusion about the final payment for our stay, but that was quickly dealt with, once again over emails. Hopefully we will be able to return and spend some more time in this beautiful home. Thank you Dinu! :).

It was an honor to be chosen by Jo and Ben after their stressful and successful championship in Bulgaria. There were quite a few other…countries in the area they could have chosen. Thank you! About the confusion related to the final payment: indeed, a confusion based on the similarity between Bulgarian Leva and Euros, but it was swiftly solved, also backed up by pictures we took and sent, not to leave behind ANY doubts. We will so gladly host Jo and Ben again!

About the neighborhood
'Dracula's Castle' is only one km away from our villa, but this nice castle built by the Teutonic Knights around 1212 should NOT be your main reason to visit Bran, BUT: We have already had visitors from the UK, the USA, Switzerland, Germany and Austria and they all agreed: Bran's landscape is really unique in its intensive, wild beauty. It is a highly picturesque mountain village, with its permanently changing topography, with its immense green grass carpets dotted with wild flowers, randomly decorated by thousands of hay stacks all along the summer and autumn, with sheep flocks crossing your way , framed by mountain streams, fir tree forests, fringed by the numerous Carpathian peaks almost from all directions, surrounded by cities resplendent with gothic, baroque and renaissance architecture, as well as a wealth of historical attractions, Bran's area is one of the most visited places in Romania. Shops, Internet places, banks, ATVand ski rentals are never too far away. Last but not least, please also keep in mind the traditional tasty meals offered by the many restaurants in the village itself as well as in the whole area.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
(UK GUESTS !!! - CHECK FOR CHEAP FLIGHTS FROM UK TO ROMANIA with Wizzair, Aer Lingus, German Wings and Blue Air. We will gladly (at no extra cost) not only help you with renting a car, but with the booking of several other services and sites we visited, tested, tasted and enjoyed ourselves! HOW TO REACH US COMING FROM BUCHAREST'S AIRPORT: Leaving the airport (Otopeni) you turn right (North) and drive towards Ploiesti on the 'E60'. You take the '1' driving around Ploiesti and continue on the 'E60' driving NW. You pass Campina, Breaza, Comarnic, Sinaia, Busteni and Azuga. Before you reach Predeal, after passing a bridge, you turn West onto a lovely scenic winding road called '73A'. Enjoy it for the next cca. 15 km till you reach a T-junction. That is the '73' or the 'E574' where you turn left (S-SW). This road will take you to Bran. Once you reach Bran, you will cross a bridge followed after about 200m, on your left, by an inn ('HANUL BRAN') and some 100m after the HAN, before you reach 'Dracula's Castle', you turn left onto Bran's main road - Strada Poarta. Our house keeper will be waiting for you very close to that spot. You will receive from us even more accurate directions once you booked.
