Barn cottage is situated up on the hill, away from the hustle and bustle of the village of Bran, but close enough to walk there in 20 minutes. From our windows we look upon the wide plains of Barsa towards Brasov and the surrounding mountains.
Barn Cottage is suitable for two adults; we have not planned to host families with children.
We have a non smoking rule inside the cottage. If you do smoke outdoors on the patio please make sure you tidy up after yourself.

Le logement
Barn cottage is over 100 years old, an old log cabin built by a local shepherd. We went to great lengths to preserve the original look while reinforcing the foundations and modernising the indoor space. We worked with local builders and carpenters who made all the furniture in their workshop at the bottom of the hill, in the village.
The cottage has two rooms: a living space with kitchen, dining table and seating in front of a traditional German style terracotta wood burning stove and a bedroom with its own stove and a large double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. From the entrance hall there is a shower room with wash basin and toilet. The cottage is well equipped with all mod cons, including bedding and towels, kitchen utensils, all necessary equipment to enjoy a comfortable self catering stay.
The Barn opens onto a small terrace and own meadow. This is not arranged as a formal garden but keeps in style with its surroundings, those of working farms. Our neighbour Mrs Mitza cuts the hay three times each summer and in its stead gives us fresh eggs from her hens. Until recently she has been sending her sons to cut the hay down with their scythe, but recently more and more farmers use small portable trimmers, fuelled by petrol. We do what we can to promote old customs but these are slowly dying out, alas.

Accès des voyageurs
The whole of the cottage is available to guests. It is small and totally self contained. We share the use of the log shed behind the cottage with the larger house behind it. This larger house also belongs to us and our extended Romanian family who may or may not be there at the time of your visit. You will be free to visit the grounds and terrace if no one is there. However, if people are there, please do not visit uninvited.
The access road up to the cottage can be challenging during rainy seasons. The local council does level it every month but when big rains come down the mountain, it does get disrupted. I can find out nearer your trip what the state of the lane is and advise. You can always leave the car at the bottom of the hill, it is a five minute walk to the cottage.

Autres remarques
If you have a hired car, we offer a car parking place in front of the cottage, on our drive. If you travel by train/ taxi/ bus, the taxis will be able to bring you up to the cottage or you can walk from the bus stop in centre Bran, a 15 - 20 minute walk. From the Otopeni airport your can hire a car, or take a taxi to the Gara de Nord (the train station) and a train to Brasov. From Brasov, a taxi is about 100 lei which is equivalent to £20.

Haystacks, horse drawn carts, small holdings with basic traditional agriculture all around. Quiet, space, peace. These are not just words, it is the reality.
The cottage sits on the bottom side of Magura Branului hill, overlooking the Bucegi Mountains to the East, Piatra Craiului to the West, Tzara Barsei in front. From Bran several mountain walks of various difficulty start, some to reach up to altitudes of 7000 feet. Other walks, such as up the hill behind the cottage, is accessible to all, via a gentle climb of 40 minutes to the top, from where the views are of outstanding beauty. Other gentle walks from the cottage are circular walks around the vicinity, on footpaths through valleys and hills, or on the lanes and local roads.

The cottage is in the village of Predelut, just outside Bran. Bran castle, known as Dracula Castle, is an old fortified tower and castle, refurbished by Queen Maria of Romania in the 19th Century for her daughter Ileana. This is the reason for our address: Pricipesa Ileana, Princess Ileana.
From our village one can reach the best Romanian ski slopes at Poiana Brasov in 20 minutes by car. Also in half an hour you can reach Brasov, a beautiful medieval town with Town Hall from the 14th Century and lovely pedestrian square and promenade.

I am Romanian by birth, but I have lived and worked in the UK all my adult life. I have been an early years educator and I now, as I am retired I play with my five grandchildren when they visit, learn to paint, write my memoirs and .....learn to rediscover myself. I live with my husband of 44 years Chris, hopefully many more years to come. Chris and I together with my extended Romanian family, built a large family holiday home on the outskirts of Bran, where we spend summer holidays together with our grown up sons and their families. So we spend one month every summer together and every other year in the winter celebrating Christmas and New year together. Recently we refurbished the barn on our land and transformed it into a comfortable cosy cottage for two. This is the Barn Cottage you are looking at for your stay. We enjoy sharing our little Barn Cottage with guests and we trust that Airbnb travellers will look after and love our cottage as much as we do and take good care of it. Our housekeeper Violeta looks after the cottage and carries out the change overs. Her house is at the bottom of the lane in the village of Predelut.
