Holidays to Romania
Sunvil, rather reluctantly, visited Romania in April 2006 because we did not really believe the occasional comments we were hearing that this was the most beautiful and interesting of the Eastern European states. What we saw and felt during a trip that covered half the country convinced us that Romania was quintessentially Sunvil territory – warm, welcoming and beautiful – a land that time forgot.
Our holidays feature Transylvania, Maramures and Moldavia (not to be confused with the neighbouring state of Moldova). We had to start somewhere and we felt that these areas would make the best introduction to the country.
Flexibility, with our guidance, is what we offer. We can arrange single centre and multi centre holidays. These can be guided, partly guided or we can organise fly-drive holidays with pre-booked itineraries which have been arranged following consultation with us. The itinerary can be followed by self-drive car or by taxi with guide should you not wish to drive.
Holidays In Romania
As ever, Sunvil allows you to break new ground and the arrangements we can make are not available elsewhere. Accommodation is in simple yet comfortable inns, hotels, boutique hotels and farm houses. Many of the properties we offer can compare with any of those in our programmes which cover Western Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean. However, we also feature one or two very basic properties as we feel that the areas surrounding these are so unique that one or two nights in less than perfect accommodation is a small price to pay for the wonders that one can discover.
You will find various suggestions within this website, which you can follow but, as ever with our holidays, feel free to design your own itinerary and we can help you develop and fine tune it. We would most definitely recommend a multi-centre trip because Romania has such diverse attractions.
We do not know the southern state of Wallachia (apart from Bucharest) or the western regions of Crisana and Banat but, we have an excellent agent in Romania and, knowing how we work, they will be able to make arrangements in the areas which we have not as yet researched. However, the regions we have chosen will give more than ample opportunity for a most memorable visit. We do not feature the Black Sea resorts because we have decided that the uniqueness of Romania lies elsewhere and a sea-side resort is a sea-side resort, no matter where it is located. We concentrate on the rural heartland of Romania, the life and soul of the country, where the culture and ethos of Romania were created.
The Sunvil Discovery programme is best suited to independent, seasoned travellers wishing to immerse themselves further in a country’s culture. Our holidays are tailored to individual tastes and requirements. Scheduled flights enable travel on the days that suit and accommodation can be arranged in any order and for any duration. In addition to the scheduled flights with British Airways we are able to package holidays together with low cost airlines or charter flights from regional airports – flight routes permitting!
