A large older home being restored by the owners. An antique feel with modern appliances and accoutrements. Three BRs and 3 baths all with hand-held showers and a separate 1BR lower-level apartment provides room for a large group. Typical for Europe, the kitchen is compact, well supplied and fully equipped. Oil, spices, tea, coffee are all on hand. On a rural street 2 km from Centro, it is quiet and spacious with good WiFi, great tv with a selection of movies and tons of music for the superb stereo. Nicely decorated in a traditional style.
The house was clean, warm and welcoming. The owners, Marius and Ioana, were responsive, kind and extremely accommodating.
Washer in basement with a drying rack made light travelling easy. A beautiful sauna was a big bonus. Fireplace, but we didn't use it. Online photos and descriptions are accurate. Food in the nearby restaurant was inexpensive and of adequate quality for the price.
The house is on the same street as the river and the railway bed so the regular passing trains are great if you're a railway buff. The sound was noticeable but not a problem. Stray dogs are plentiful in Romania and their night-time barking might annoy light sleepers but no more than busy city noise.
The local monastery and the Peles Castle are wonderful sites and well worth a day to visit. And the gondola trip to the top of the mountain is an interesting side trip.
All in all, Villa Poem Boem was a wonderful experience and we’d highly recommend it.
