Brasov chalet description

Spectacular log home on the outskirts of the forest, The Carpathian Log Home offers comfortable accomodation on three levels. The ground floor comprises of a high ceiling living room with fireplace and glass facade to the valley bellow, open plan modern and fully equiped kitchen, a dining room area for 10, a spacious bedroom with ensuite full bathroom, sauna and jacuzzi. The ground floor is surrounded by a large terrace, offering magnificent views to the mountains and the valley.

The first floor comprises of two large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and own terrace, while on the third floor there's a bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a gym area with breathtaking views.

The house is surrounded by an apple orchard and green pastures, Bucegi Mts on the east side, Piatra Craiului Mts on the west side, at north is the valley above Bran and you can see the Rasnov Fortress in the far back.

Outside you will find a wooden gazebo near the bbq area, a wooden swing for your relaxing afternoons while enjoying the sights. The villa gets sun all day long and the privacy of the area is perfect for sunbathing. Being situated on a very high position, near the forest line, the Carpathian Log Home is rather isolated from the main village. You won't be disturbed by any noise here, perhaps only the cow bells will break the silence. At night you can see the lights of the village bellow, while the star lights will seem closer than ever from here.

There are many hiking trails in the area, starting from the small villages of Bran and going all the way up to the peaks, but you can also just walk around and never get bored. The Bran area is also perfect for cycling, mountain biking or more off road adventures.

The local ski slope is only a 5 minutes drive from the house, but the famous Poiana Brasov with its modern slopes is also very close, only a 15 minutes drive on a very scenic road.

              Car: Recommended

              The Carpathian Log Home is suitable for ski holidays, relaxing away from it all retreats for families with kids, lovers of nature and traditions, as the village of Bran is the gate to the mysterious Transylvania with its centuries old fortresses and ancient popular traditions. The nearby city of Brasov or the Sighisoara fortress are rich in history and culture, exquisite pubs and clubs and most of all, friendly romanians willing to share the beauties of their country with worldwide tourists.

              Located 25 Km from Brasov and 190 Km from Bucharest, Bran represents both a historical place and a legend. Bran is the gateway between Transylvania and Valachia with one side lined by the Piatra Craiului Mountains and the other by the Bucegi Mountains. Bran hosts one of the most visited castles in Europe, the Dracula Castle, the source which inspired the most fascinating legend of the blood- shedding Count Dracula. The Castle was built by the inhabitants of Brasov in the interval 1377-1382 to protect the mountain pass from the invading Turks. At the beginning of the 20th century it became the favourite residence of Queen Maria of Romania, a queen for whom the Bran inhabitants manifested a deep gratitude, as they also benefited from a profound appreciation during the Romanian monarchy. Although the name of Bran is closely linked to that of the Bran Castle, the region is extremely rich in tourist attractions: the Moieciului Gorges, the Bucegi Mountains and Piatra Craiului, Pestera Dambovicioara, Cetatea Rasnovului (Rasnov Fortress), and also Brasov and the neighbouring Saxon fortresses from Prejmer and Harman. More distant sites can also be visited, such as: Peles Castle in Sinaia, the medieval fortress Sighisoara (UNESCO Patrimony), or Biertan, one of the biggest Saxon fortresses in Transylvania. Bran has also become a place which competes with the town due to its smart villas built in recent years. Living within a well-meaning nature, with hardworking and welcoming people the people from Bran always knew how to benefit from the assets they had from tourism. Rural tourism has been practised in the region for some decades, representing a feasible alternative to the large hotels in the Valea Prahovei or Poiana Brasov resort. Poiana Brasov resort is a traditional place for skiing, but also for spending Summer holidays. the access from Rasnov is pretty short (9kms). The family-like atmosphere that overwhelms you in the rural homes, the people who know to value a 'thank you' coming from the bottom of the heart of a tourist after a good wealthy meal, hosts who will proudly show their tastefully decorated houses, are only some of the arguments which will persuade you to prolong your stay in these places.

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: I'm a nature lover and a world traveler. I've been using the site as a traveler before and I loved the whole experience, so I thought about listing my home as well. It is a beautiful log home in the mountains, with spectacular views in and out. It's been decorated with love and natural materials, for a relaxing, comfortable living. This is where I live and you will find here bits of my life and personality. I trust you will find it as homey and warm as I do and you will want to come back sometime:) Enjoy your staying in Bran and my home.

              The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
              The magnificent views from the glass fasade livingroom made me fall inlove with this house from the first sight.
