WINTER’S TALE IN CHEILE GRADISTEI
Between Christmas and New Year we spent a few days in the mountains in Brasov and for the first time we booked two nights in Cheile Gradistei Resort near Bran and we stayed in Fundata Resort. It was foggy when we arrived, so I did’t notice the view, but I fell in love immediately with the wooden cottage where we stayed. It was like those houses from the most beautiful tales I’ve heard in my childhood. It was made of tree trunks. Inside it, in the living room was a sofa, an armchair and something that caught my attention: a wooden table and chairs that were hand-painted. From the living, a wooden staircase was leading to two bedrooms upstairs. Our bedroom was downstairs and I was glad to see that our room had also painted wooden furniture. I felt like I was in a house made of gingerbread.
The following days the fog was gone and I was able to admire the rest of the resort, which consists of three hotels and several villas and cottages. But the charm of this resort lies in the nature surrounding it that offers a breathtaking view over the valleys, mountains and forests around.
We have found here the winter of our childhood and we enjoyed as much as we could the snow and the sledding .
Besides the slope for sledding Fundata Resort from Cheile Gradistei has one also for ski. I have no pictures to show from the second slope because I still have’t learned to ski. Another thing that I love about this resort is that here we can stay with our dog 🙂
I leave you here the link of the resort and I recommend you to stay in a small wooden cottage 🙂
