It´s a perfect location for travelers, families and groups.

The house is administered by a family of local guides that offer great advice, help in planning and maps and tips of the surroundings.

35 km away from Brasov, settled in a marvellous mountain area, the Bradul Chalet can serve as the perfect base for making day trips to Dracula´s Castle, Brasov, Sighisoara, Sinaia, Predeal or Bucharest while enjoying the quiteness of a mountain village. If you have in mind a family holiday or a relaxing few days in nature, the village offers many possibilities of hiking, bike riding, guided trekking and hiking tours.

Bradul Chalet offers comfort, authenticity and tradition, harmoniously interlaced in a magical experience for the guests. The chalet is scenically located in the midst of nature and is just 12 km away from Bran, the well-known home of Count Dracula!

Bradul Chalet is a beautiful, wooden buiding and is organized as follows. On the ground floor there´s a large, covered terrace, the entrance and the kitchen. On the 1st floor there are the 2 apartments and the living room and on the 2nd floor there are the 4 double rooms.

Both apartments and the 4 rooms have private bathroom with shower, king size beds, drawer, a little TV with satellite.

There is free wifi access all through the house.

The apartments are each one made of 2 separate rooms, separated by door. In each apartment there is one bathroom and one TV. In one of the apartments there is 1 king size bed and 2 twins, while the 2nd apartment has got 2 double beds.

The house and the rooms are simply decorated, nevertheless comfortable and clean.

At the back of the house, on a higher position, there´s a relaxation area with chaise longues and swings.

About Ioana Tisca

Hi there!

We are Nacho and Ioana, a Spanish - Romanian couple, nature lovers and promoters of sustainable tourism. In 2013 we decided to come together with our son and make a living in the village of Moeciu de Sus, which is also Ioana´s birth place. We´re fond of old traditions and customs, which we try to revive, promote and share with all of our guests and friends. We love hiking and living as close as posible to raw nature.

We´ve spent our life working in tourism and we are now puting all our experience at stake for making our guests stay in Romania an unique experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place was magical! It sits in a valley in a land that time forgot. Farmers harvest hay by hand and haul it up giant hills on their backs. Sheep with long tails lounge about in green pastures. Chickens scratch around in the fields, laying eggs that are eaten for breakfast in the morning. The hosts are warm and friendly and the breakfast was magnificent. All of the food was local. The honey came from the hives across the street. The eggs from the chickens on the hill. The jam was made from local fruits. There was a plum brandy that was unforgettable! There's a small creek that runs directly in front of the house which you can hear all of time since there are hardly any cars. I hope to return some day.

We were a group of 7 people, spanning 3 generations of our family, on 22 day, 11 country road-trip across Europe. There was a quite swing outside for relaxing, a large table inside for playing games, wifi to keep everybody connected, and a grocery store and great restaurant within walking distance. We wished for more time so we could experience some of the hiking trails in the area, as this property served as a waypoint in the trail system.

Super weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Cabana Bradul is in the center of Moeciu de Sus. The rooms are excellent, clean and fun. The common area has a sweeping view of the village center. Great kitchen and a store 100 meters away. My hosts Ioana and Nacia were the best: we share beer and good conversation at night and hiked the hills during the day. Easy to explore the village alone also. All people I met were super friendly. I can't say enough. This should be the model for all pensiunes.
