Arefu

Steeped in Dracula-flavored mythology, the small Romanian village of Arefu feels like it's stuck in time. The main attraction in Arefu is the nearby medieval citadel, notable for its links to the infamous Vlad the Impaler. Most people take a trip to Arefu as part of a longer tour along the scenic Transfagarasan Highway, which winds through the surrounding mountains. Arefu is in Arges County. Plan your holiday in Arefu and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Romania trip itinerary planner .

Where to stay in Arefu

You'll be hard-pressed to find accommodations within the small village of Arefu itself. Instead, you're better off looking just east of the settlement, where you can stay at a budget-friendly bed and breakfast in the village of Corbeni. From there, you can easily visit Arefu and the nearby citadel on a day trip.
