About Damian Galvin
I moved to Brasov in 2007 after falling in love with Transylvania. A place of exceptional beauty and freedom. I am also a frequent traveler on business and pleasure so I understand what is required of my holiday home and I take that as my highest priority. This site has a great reputation, so I decided to list my holiday home here to share it with like minded travelers . It is a beautiful timber framed home in the Transylvania mountains, with great views all round views. I live in nearby Brasov which is equally beautiful. My interests include off road motorbiking, dining, dance and staying young!
Damian Galvin purchased this Villa in 2008

Nice House poor organisation/management
The property is very good and the facilities are well maintained . The road to the property is not well maintained (pot holes)
The view of the Brasov valley is excellent but not of Bran itself .
The manager did not provide good directions to the property. There was a confusion with the booking (we originally booked for 4 nights (booking confirmed and accepted)only to be informed later that this was not possible and alternative accommodation in a nearby hotel (which was an excellent hotel)was arranged for us.
Thanks for the feedback and apologies for any confusion. The road is a 400 year old dirt road and has never been anything else. It's not Surrey or Warwickshire, but raw Transylvania.
As for comms, I fully agree but as I proved to you, the single email I had from you was to enquire if the villa was free &.I accepted the booking. Then 4 or more weeks pass & not a single sms or call. You flew all the way to Romania &.drove to within 500 meters of the house without an email, call or sms asking for help. Most sites I use have fully downloadable instructions on how to get there & in &.I honestly believed this site had that feature. When I called HA to complain about directions the operator said 'in all my years of being here I have never heard of a traveller so Ill prepared for travel that they make zero prep. How is that your fail? Those we her exact words.

A memorable experience
Very quallity aer and life stil. I'm glad I had the opportunity to spend five days with his family in a place so spacial.
The house was clean, the garden very safe for the kids, with a nice terrace and parking places. It may come back in future
Best stay all year round. Definitely recomend
Fresh air all day long, natural sounds, no traffic, no noisy police cars. Friendly neighbours.
Cozy rooms, well equiped kitchen, and a nice patio.
Epic stay in beautiful Transylvania
I stayed here for a week in March this year. Absolutely fabulous! Everything from the unreal surroundings to the fantastic facilities in the villa. Do yourself a favour and just go, it's one of those life experiences!
Bran is the most important tourist village in Transylvania since it is home to Dracula's Castle from the fictional novel by Bram Stoker in 1898. The location of the villa is just 3lm from the castle, offering tranquility when you want it, yet just a 3 min drive or 20 min walk to the heart of the village. Direct neighbors include several former prime ministers and stars.so you are in good company!
