Located 25 Km from Brasov and 190 Km from Bucharest, Bran represents both a historical place and a legend.

Bran is the gateway between Transylvania and Walachia with one side lined by the Piatra Craiului Mountains and the other by the Bucegi Mountains.

Bran hosts one of the most visited castles in Europe, the Dracula Castle, and the source which inspired the most fascinating legend of the blood- shedding Count Dracula. The Castle was built by the inhabitants of Brasov in the interval (phone number hidden) protect the mountain pass from the invading Turks. At the beginning of the 20th century it became the favourite residence of Queen Maria of Romania, a queen for whom the Bran inhabitants manifested a deep gratitude, as they also benefited from a profound appreciation during the Romanian monarchy.

Although the name of Bran is mainly associated to that of the Bran Castle, the region is extremely rich in tourist attractions: the Moieciului Gorges, the Bucegi Mountains and Piatra Craiului, Pestera Dambovicioara, Cetatea Rasnovului (Rasnov Fortress) and also Brasov and the neighbouring Saxon fortresses from Prejmer and Harman. Evidence of life has been found in this area from 10,000 years ago!

Within an hour or two drive other sites can also be visited, such as: Peles Castle in Sinaia, the medieval fortress Sighisoara (UNESCO Patrimony), or Biertan, one of the biggest Saxon fortresses in Transylvania.
Bran has also become a place which competes with the town due to its smart villas built in recent years. Living within a well-meaning nature, with hardworking and welcoming people. The people of Bran always knew how to get by with the resources available to them. Rural tourism is improving all the time but is still in its infancy so hidden gems are best found by asking. Don’t just assume the best restaurant is the most visible. Sometimes the opposite is true. Staying in villas such as Craiasa Branului offers a feasible alternative to the large hotels in the Valea Prahovei or Poiana Brasov ski resort.

Poiana Brasov resort (25 min drive) is the largest and most developed of all Romania’s ski resorts, located at 20km away. It is also known for spending summer holidays
The senses of privacy, freedom and family-like atmosphere that overwhelm you in Craiasa Branului as a rural homes, the people who know to value gratitude coming from the bottom of the heart of a tourist after a hearty meal are only some of the memories which will take away with you.


The distance from the Otopeni airport is 160km. Transportation to/from the airport can be arranged by car, as well as private tours in Transylvania.
Public transportation is available by train, the closest railway station being Zarnesti, at 7 km from the villa. There are also buses passing through Bran to Brasov/Bucharest.
For the local trips, taxis are available in Bran. For greater distances, you might want to rent a car. Or we can recommend a private taxi driver


This villa is truly an outstanding place to spend time with your friends and family as the many reviews on trip advisor will show. Holidays are a special resource and you should use it wisely. As an owner I would never want to waste someone else s precious holiday by offering something substandard. This is why i have presented the villa to the standard I have, having built it myself in the perfect location after a 2 year search for the perfect spot.

We spent New Year's in Damian s house in Bran and were lucky to have it. The house is spacious, clean, cosy. We found everything needed to feel at home and Damian s been in touch whenever we needed. As improvements, the heaters upstairs are small for very cold days (we had -19 outside).

We really enjoyed our stay in the villa - it is in the most idyllic setting and we are really missing those mountain views. The villa is very comfortable and Damian was helpful whenever we spoke with him. Thank you :)

This is a beautiful home with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (1 full, 1 3/4 and one 1/2), full kitchen with all the necessary amenities, and outdoor patio. It is on a gravel road about 10 minutes outside of Bran. Damien was very responsive. I have nothing but nice things to say about this property.

The villa near Bran was fantastic. Stunning scenery and Damian made it very easy to pick up the keys in Brasov and explained clearly how to get there. Would definitely use again.
