“All We Wanted and More” We were a party of different families and totaled 12 people including children aged between 18 months and fifteen years. Bradul Chalet is both spacious and well maintained, giving members of the group the opportunity to do different things at the same time. Even with music and partying in the main reception area, it was possible for the little ones to sleep at the top of the chalet with no problems.
The area that Bradul Chalet is set, is one of immense natural beauty, and in my opinion can rival the likes of austria and Switzerland at less than half the price. There are many beautiful walks through mountains, forest, and parks that are waiting to be explored.
We were self catering, however I am sure there are a number of local restaurants that are within easy reach. The community is served by a number of small shops for any every day requirements and the town of Bran is some 8km away where there are more shopping opportunities. Bran Castle is more commonly known as Dracula's Castle. The entrance fee here is 25 Lei for adults and 5 Lei for students. It is well worth a visit for the views and the interesting memorabilia.
Although we visited in November the weather was very mild and unseasonably warm. Indeed with the blue skies and the temperatures in the high twenties it could have been the middle of summer!
Finally I must mention Ioana and her husband who I think manage the lets on behalf of Ioana's parents. Nothing was too much trouble for them in ensuring our stay was excellent. I hope to return to Bradul Chalet again as there is much more I would like to see and do there.
I suggest you will not find a better base for your holiday be it a weekend or a month! Moeciu de Sus should be visited soon before the news gets out and you will be struggling to book!
