Rent Cottages & Villas in Romania

Self catering holidays in Romania are in their infancy compared with other European destinations, yet in many ways that’s what makes the country so attractive. Much of Romania is an unspoilt rural retreat with stunning scenery, charming customs and a host of historic sites to explore. What’s more, Romania also has its share of sophisticated and vibrant cities like Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca to be enjoyed. From hiking and skiing in Carpathian Mountains to watersports and beach holidays on the Black Sea Coast, Romania will be a pleasant surprise for many.
