Such a picturesque, sincere and yet simple scenery, is purely breathtaking. When you want to escape the city bustle, here is the perfect place to do it.
I was pleasantly touched but the simplicity and good taste with which the house was designed, decorated and animated. Sometimes you forget you're on vacation, because a homey and familiar comfort takes upon. I often felt this could be my dream vacation house in spectacular surrounding.
The house has a very favorable location. On one hand your find yourself in the heart of the nature, admiring the infinite horizon and landscapes from right within your garden chair. On the other hand, you feel the need to reconnect with the city rumble and agitated pedestrians, the nearest city, Sighisoara is only 20 minutes away. Sighisoara gave me a medieval taste, of a city that has survived through time regardless of the efforts of the modern time.
