Family stay with 5 year old twins over Christmas and New Year 2013. Atmospheric - THE Christmas tree and picture postcard Christmas ambiance directly from our apartment windows - delightful.
The apartment is stunningly beautiful and lovingly restored complete with original parquet flooring. Returning to such inviting accommodation following a days skiing in very nearby Poiana Brasov was a delight. Pristine modern bathrooms, great showers, fluffy towels, percale sheets, wonderful attention to detail. Well equipped kitchen allows preparation of simple family food.
Owners, Adrian and Miheala were incredibly helpful down to the smallest detail. For more than 2 guests, we would recommend taking 2 apartments with an option on daily cleaning for a reasonable cost. Claudius, the owner of the taxi company recommended by the owners was also very professional.
We enjoyed nearby Poiana and had 5 days of ski lessons for our children. Marius at Interski is most helpful.
In Brasov, we were lucky to happen upon a soiree with the Philharmonic conducting a masterclass - it was sensational - highly recommended. Puppet theatre is also a must.
For children from 5 up to 18, Parc Adventura is great value, super and well organised outdoor activity for kids. Opens at 10am so go early and parents of kids under 7 wrap up warm as you are watching and not climbing!!
Restaurants in Brasov we loved were Bistro Poarta Scheai 4, we had an excellent beautifully cooked dinner, Sergiana for Romanian and great fun, Guara Dulce (great food, great value, wonderful steak tartare & soups). Keller did not live up to reviews at all for us personally.
In Poiana Brasov we enjoyed the novelty factor of Coliba Haiducilor.
The beauty of Brasov is just how much it has to offer. A winter combination of skiing/boarding/culture/quality childrens activities and good food is possible for good value.
Staying in Adrian & Mihaelas sumptuous apartment made our trip truly memorable and infinitely calm and relaxing. Thank you!
