Situated in the central area of Baile Olanesti, Villa Nicoleta is the ideal choice when looking for accommodation in the Golden Baths area, whether you travel as a couple, with your friends, or family with kids. Last time I visited the resort was in late October, with my boyfriend, and I stayed here for two nights. I wrote a comprehensive guide with all the activities you can perform in the resort, right here.
The villa has an excellent location, on Baile Street, across the street from Hotel Olanesti. Basically, you can immediately see it as you enter the resort. Nearby, are located almost all points of interest in the area: parks, a swimming pool, sports fields, the natural springs, and an ultra-modern spa complex, Tisa Spa Resort.
From the entrance, you walk into a very inviting room. In the lobby, you will be welcomed by Mrs. Nicoleta, the owner of the villa who is also the host, who is very friendly and will help you with everything you need during your stay. One detail that caught my attention, in particular, is that they have plenty of umbrellas available for guests, at the entrance, in case they would have to deal with some rainy days. Mrs. Nicoleta will provide a tour of the villa, showing you how the rooms are placed and the facilities of the villa.
The villa has a total of 8 double rooms, rated 4 stars, each with bathroom, and one apartment with two rooms, perfect for families with children who come here on vacation. Each room has a modern design and is bright, spacious and fully equipped with TV, free WIFI, hydromassage shower, bathrobes and clean towels, slippers and a mini-office. We stayed in a room on the 2nd floor, overlooking the terrace, where I could admire the panorama of the entire resort. The room was very comfortable and gave us two relaxing nights. I liked very much the large windows and the curtains, which helped us illuminate the room as much as we wanted or, on the contrary, to cover the windows entirely for the benefit of privacy.
Is another big plus of Villa Nicoleta. The kitchen is fully equipped with storage cupboards, refrigerator, stove with oven, and a minibar. There is a dining area, but also a sofa and a TV, perfect for relaxing or socializing.
The terraces are very spacious, and are the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or to bronze on one of the lounge chairs on sunny days of the warm season. There is also a barbecue outside, perfect for an afternoon to spend it with the other guests of the villa.
On the 2nd floor, Villa Nicoleta offers its guests a relaxation room. Specifically, here you get a term massage, on the bed with jade stones and tourmaline. In short, if you have back pain, insomnia problems or simply want to enjoy your moment of relaxation and detoxification, this massage will become your good buddy while you stayed at Villa Nicoleta.

I talked in detail about the therapeutic waters in Olanesti, that brought fame to the resort, but also a lot of tourists annually. The springs are arranged on either side of an avenue that gets lost in the beautiful forest of the National Park Buila Vanturarita.
In Valcea county, there are a lot of very beautiful monasteries, where you could easily get to from Olanesti. I recommend you visit Cozia, Turnu, Curtea de Arges and The “made-of-a-wood” Monastery.
