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 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.

Tilgang for gjester

The whole of the cottage will be available to guests. It is small and totally self contained, separate from the large house behind although it belongs to the same estate. The large Swiss chalet style house is also our house but we share this with 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.

Interaksjon med Gjester

I will not always be there during your visit. I have arranged with a local lady, Violeta, to ensure you have a key to get in, prepare the cottage for your arrival and be our housekeeper. Please do contact me for any questions about outings, shopping, restaurants. My mobile number is on the airbnb site, but here is again: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). I do (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).

Andre ting å merke seg

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 £16.b

No smoking allowed in the cottage. Please make sure you dispose discreetly of any cigarette butts if you do smoke out of doors.
No pets please.
No children, thank you.
Please ensure that you wash up any kitchen utensils used before putting away in cupboards.
The gas: when you arrive you will need to turn on the gas from the gas bottle in cupboard. I will ask Violeta to show you this. Please ensure that this is turned off when you leave.
Wood fires: feel free to use our wood from the wood store (between the barn and the big house) to make the odd fire in the rooms. But then ensure that the doors to the stove is securely fastened before you go to bed.

The cottage is very pretty and cozy. It is located up on a hill, with a great view of Bran, the hills and the mountains surrounding it. Everything was very clean, we received useful information before arriving. Kitchen is well equipped and you can cook about anything you like. I would definitely choose to come back here for a few days away from the big city.

I'll start from an important thing you need to know - driving the last 50 meters to the house is REALLY challenging. It was mentioned in other reviews too, and usually I'm very sceptical about such warnings - usually people from western countries are overreacting about the state of the road and driving conditions:) We are spending a lot of time in Lithuanian countryside driving on REALLY bad roads, so my usual reaction is "learn to drive, pussies!":D But not in this case. We had a VW Polo and it was absolutely unsuitable for driving to the house. I'd suggest you to rent at least crossover (you don't need so much power to drive to the house, but your need much higher car than usual) and 4x4 would be better, as after heavy rain you can be in trouble driving up to the house even with crossover. And what made driving even more difficult - knowing that no insurance is valid for rented car when you are driving on unpaved road. We had bought very expensive "0 risk" insurance and even it doesn't cover such a situations... And this - road to the house - was one and the only problem. The house itself is unbelievably great!!! It's the best AirBnB house we have ever been in! So much attention for every detail, so much love and care in every single thing! We were out for hiking (several good routes start just from the house!), but we spent more of the time just sitting inside, drinking tee, reading the books, relaxing in front of the fire... What a good and peacefull place to be! We even didn't go to the Bran castle, cause we didn't want to spoil our relaxed days spent in this house with touristic fuss of Bran. Ileana, thank you for sharing this great house with others! Just one thing - some sigh on the road indicating the location of house would not hurt. We followed all the directions very carefully, but it wasn't so easy to find it - we went to the end of the road and then found it on our way back, as when driving to the hill, the house is on the left and is not seen from the road very well.

The barn is a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. It was so nice to be able to light fires in the evening, and the kitchen was really well equipped so cooking was easy. We struggled a bit on the drive in our tiny hire car but easily found parking elsewhere in Bran. I would really - and already have - recommend this place. And finally, Ileana was great host. Really quick and easy communication which made everything so easy. Thanks!

Amazing views, private, old world feel with all modern amenities... we just loved our stay in this country home. The kitchen has everything you need to do some basic cooking. The host provides a great selection of teas for the morning. The bed is very comfortable, with great bedding. Would come back for another stay for sure.

An amazing old charming house with all you need and in a fantastic location, both close to Bran Castle (only 15 min. walk), but still very private and peacefull up the hill and close to walking trails in the mountains and in the most beautifull landscape. 5 days with all the ingrediens we needed to have the very best stay in the Old Barn. Thanks to Ileana for sharing this spot in Rumania with us, and for making all contact and information work fast and smoothly.

Tolle restaurierte "Scheune" zum Feriendomiziel ausgebaut. Alles so schön wie auf den Bildern zu sehen und wirklich urig. Abgeschieden aber trotzem nicht weit entfernt vom Zentrum von Bran. Nicht ganz einsam, aber trotzdem abgeschirmt von den Nachbarn in ca 20-50m Entfernung. Die Anreise über den Schotterweg ist etwas schwierig aber bei gutem Wetter auch mit einem normalen Auto auch zu machen. Ich hatte eine tolle Zeit und komme sehr gerne wieder!

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 41 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 spent many holidays as we brought up our children. Recently we refurbished the barn on our land and transformed it into a comfortable cosy cottage for two.
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.
We will be in Romania some of the time this summer and welcome you to join us there.
