Just a 15 minutes walk from Bran Castle you'll find this amazing place called Conacul Bratescu, a family-run business where you feel like visiting some old friends. Looks like a boutique hotel, but we think it is more than that. Nice interior decorations, traditional combined with modern designs, manor-like architecture and above all... attention to details, which makes all the difference!
Bratescu Manor is one of the most beautiful manors in Romania, and guess what, it's only 10 minutes walk away from Bran Castle! You'll find here a charming boutique hotel, with amazingly designed rooms (each room has a different design) and great cozy atmosphere! Totally recommend this place if you plan to visit Romania and Bran Castle!
Can't believe my bed is made of old traditional Romanian clothing! All those colored fabrics are actually "fotas", which is something similar to carpets, sewed manually and worn over the traditional skirts. My grandmother used to have lots of fotas, I also have one at home which I'm trying to integrate in my wardrobe. This room was heaven on earth for me!
This gorgeous room was our home for two days :) And guess what, it inspired us to create a similar corner in our future house :) We also want a hidden treasure in the attic, wooden beams, perfectly white walls, antique details, an old sewing machine, a corner for stunning gowns and attic roof windows, to hear the rain and see the thunders :) As George Ezra says in his "Did you hear the rain?" great song :)
