The Village (Bran)

Text about the village

Wider Area


Flanked by the dramatic peaks of the Carpathian Mountains and the 600 years old “Dracula’s Castle”, this newly built villa is any vacationer’s dream. It is situated in the highly picturesque Romanian resort village of Bran, in Transylvania, a place famous for its stunning, unspoiled natural landscape, one of the most beautiful in Europe. The villa nestles in an intimate location, with only one other house in sight, surrounded by fruit trees, while a mountain stream runs along it.


The house is the result of a unique combination of traditional design elements with modern facilities, both collected from all around the world in order to create a pleasant, cozy atmosphere. The double Jacuzzi bath in the attic, set next to a large window opening towards the surrounding hills and the towering Carpathian peaks, is just one of the unforgettable treats awaiting you here.


The fact that you can have the whole house to yourselves, makes this vacation house the ideal base for a comfortable and relaxing vacation.


Transylvania’s most attractive sites are also but a short ride away, be it wonderful hiking routes, medieval Saxon towns and fortresses, organ concerts in Lutheran churches, jazz, theater, rock and medieval festivals, good restaurants or modern ski resorts. Shopping is made easy by large shopping centers and supermarkets, while the finest traditional produce is on sale throughout the area.



There are dozens of stunning scenic hiking and walking routes in all directions, starting right from the villa.

  • The Bran Castle or “Castle of Count Dracula” – within walking distance.
  • Biking through the magnificent Bucegi National Park, starting at about 2 km from the villa and connected to it by the main village road.
  • The location of the spectacular Hollywood film “Cold Mountain” (10km).
  • The ski resort of Poiana Braşov (the best in the country) is about 15 km away.
  • A smaller ski slope with a ski lift is up the road from the villa, towards the Bucegi National Park.
  • The town of Râşnov (between Bran and Braşov), founded by the Teutonic Knights in the 13th century. Râşnov’s large and recently renovated fortress (today a museum) is a recommended tourist site. The hilltop fortress offers fantastic panoramic views of the historic Bârsa County, flanked from all sides by mountain chains.
  • The city of Braşov (28 km) with its excellently preserved old city is historically the richest Saxon city in Transylvania. It offers great walks along the city’s picturesque streets, unforgettable organ concerts in the towering 600 years old Black Church, museums, theater, cinemas, pastry shops to die for and if you insist, shopping malls, pedestrianized shopping streets and large supermarkets. Hard to believe you will ever be tired of our “chef’s” cooking, but if so, beside a few traditional restaurants in the village itself, some very good restaurants are waiting for you in Braşov.
  • Sighişoara boasts one of the greatest medieval cityscapes in the world. Its walled upper city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the perfect destination for a one-day trip.
  • Sinaia (a scenic 50 km ride from Bran), “the Pearl of the Carpathians”, was chosen by Romania’s first king as the site for his summer residence: Peleş Castle. Visiting this opulent Bavarian-style palace is a must. A cable car can take you from Sinaia or from the neighboring resort of Buşteni to the 2500m high mountains dominating the area. From there, the very fit can hike down the mountain to Bran.
  • Sibiu (165 km from Bran), one of the oldest Saxon cities of Transylvania, managed to preserve much of its medieval charme until this day. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004 and European Capital of Culture 2007, it awaits you with a large array of sightseeing and cultural highlights.
