About the Property
2 bedrooms and 1 loft, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6
Stroll among The Grape's two vineyards next to the property, relax under one of the cherry, almond, apple, apricot, plum, walnut or mulberry trees or just kickback in the sunny sunken patio next to the fire pit.
Dont expect to be pampered with luxury at the Grape, otherwise you (and I) will be frustrated. This is the country side after all. But do expect quality.
I miss my vineyard and all of the parties and friends i hosted. Now, since i am no longer in Romania, I want The Grape to give to others the opportunity to relax and enjoying the outside (as it did for me).
Long lunches, walks, reading, sitting by the fire and drinking wine is what it is about.
Since you will be staying in the wine region, you will have to indulge, no?
The Grape is a working vineyard and makes about 1500 liters of wine a year, mainly white but also some merlot and depending on the harvest, rose as well.
You will be given 6 bottles of wine as a gift upon your arrival.
Additionally, you will be given a bottle of the local plum and grape brandy (which is locally distilled). You will probably be given samples from nearby neighbors since each thinks his/her plum brandy and wine is better than the next.
There are plenty of books in the cottage in case you finish all that you brought, in addition to board games to keep everyone occupied. Plus, any kids will love to visit the neighbors 'barn' with goats, chickens, geese and more.
Sit and relax or help in the vineyard with the vineyard master when he is there, or gather a few almonds from the tree above and put them in your cereal and cut a few flowers to put on the table for dinner.
The idea is to relax and enjoy.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The Grape is located in the heart of the Romanian vineyard region. The cottage is surrounded by vineyards and views across acres of vines and rolling hills.
There is a weekly market where local farmers sell fresh produce and flowers as well as local craftsman with baskets, clothes and of course wine.
Near by Breaza, there are vineyards for wine tasting, the Berca Mud Volcanoes and plenty of scenic drives and country walks.
The Grape is a place for relaxing and forgetting about a city. 6 bottles of estate wine are provided for free and there is plenty more where that came from if you want. Plus, the region is known for its plum brandy. A bottle from The Grape's production will welcome you upon your arrival.
The neighbors might bring you fresh goat milk or that morning's harvest of very free ranch chickens.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Entrepreneur who lived in Romania for 17 years and enjoyed every minute.
Why the Owner Chose Prahova, Romania:
This property has been a labor of love from the time my ex-financee and bought it in 2005. We wanted a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Bucharest plus we wanted a fun place for friends to be able to come and enjoy weekends (and clearly, the wine making/drinking aspect is a benefit :) ). It is easily accessible from Bucharest and it such a beautiful place to get away and we loved the idea of growing and making our own wine (which you will taste and enjoy when you stay at the The Grape). We looked at 3 properties in one weekend back in 2005 and The Grape was next to the last property we looked at. And we thought we liked that one, and then we walked around to the front of the cottage and even though one wall was nearly gone/collapsed and everything was totally over grown, we knew at that moment we had to get that one (but we did not even know if it was for sell). Long story short, we ended up negotiating with four sisters and brothers in 4 different cities to buy it (i said it was a labor of love :)). The next door vineyard was ultimately bought by a friend (who you might meet since he is often there (a Brit named Jamie).
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We renovated the original cottage built in 1925 with new walls, expanded kitchen, indoor plumbing and bathroom plus we replanted 85% of the grapes. The garden was revived and a fire pit/chill out area was added as well as the stone patio and a new storage shed built. I then ended up buying the small vineyard across the road (right in front of the cottage) in 2008 to add additional grapes and protect my view of the cottage. The vineyard produces approximately 1200 liters of white wine (mainly the Romanian grape Feteasca Regala), 400 liters of red (Merlot) and 200 liters of rose. Get ready to taste your vacation away with mine an other local wines (but remember, this is not the Cote du Rhone, Napa Valley, etc. :) )
