SUNNYSIDE 1

Dresden Villa Rental Photos and Description

Our stunning country villa 'Sunnyside' is located on a vineyard between forests and fields above the Pillnitz Castle. You will live in a lovely renovated cultural landmark surrounded by a 6000 m2 vast garden with a lot of fruit trees, patios and fire pits. In the garden you can play table tennis, in front of the house boules. The vacation apartments are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors with separate entrances. They are very tastefully furnished with antiques. You will have a wonderful view of the scenery from all rooms and balconies. If you like to be in South France or Tuscany and prefer a demanding, artistic ambiance, then you will feel very comfortable here. You can go on beautiful hikes right from in front of the front door for 'Sunnyside'. Each apartment has a large compound with an absolutely undisturbed seat with a Hollywood swing. City center - 25 min. to the city center with a car, Pillnitz Castle in 4 MIn.

Further information about the apartment: For people who are looking for tranquility and inspiration, but also for families that value diverse excursions and prefer a beautiful surrounding where they can come back to every day and where they can stay without being bored - our vacation apartment is ideal for everyone. We have designed so that it is like the vacation that we had with our daughter in southern France and Tuscany, with a lot of attention to detail and an unobtrusive charm that gives you space to feel comfortable. There are countless possibilities on the property to play, relax and if you visit us next fall, then to eat unsprayed apples from the mixed orchards.

Further information: If you walk along the Poeten path for 10 minutes from the house, you will get to a look out point called 'Zuckerhut'. From here you will have a stunning view of the historical city center of Dresden and the Frauenkirche. You can go horseback riding by multiple stables nearby.

Further details: The house has a moving story and was built in 1904 by a family of nobility from Bültzingslöwen. Until 120, it was a lively meeting point for artists and communal circles from Dresden. For example the Brookhaus family, the artist Paula Modersohn Becker with her husband Otto Modersohn, Russian opera divas and celebrated pianists. Authors, bankers, publishers and artists all have regular entries in the old guestbook. The property was restored with care and preservation and serves as an important cultural landmark belonging to the city of Dresden.

A wonderful Christmas at the villa!

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic holiday! Dresden is a magnificant city and especially so at Christmas with its old-world charm and Christmas market (dating back to the 15th c.), exceptional Semper Oper performances (we saw Hansel and Gretel), church concerts and charming Christmas candles or brightly lit stars adorning every window in the city. The surrounding villages are quaint and inviting, with friendly people everywhere who are genuinely happy to have visitors. And Pillnitz -- hometown for the villa -- is a short 20-minute drive from Dresden.

Our hosts, Peter and Harriet and their daughter Rebecca, were amazing... most gracious, welcoming and just altogether lovely people! They all went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Harriet got the opera tickets for us in advance (a must, as they sell out quickly), and Peter kindly escorted us to the local grocery to help us buy food for Christmas Eve. They even decorated a beautiful live Christmas tree for our livingroom in the villa. Then, on Christmas day, Rebecca offered to be our guide and drove with us to the Saxony Switzerland mountains -- which I highly recommend seeing.

The villa itself was perfect. The four of us stayed in Sunnyside 1 and I was amazed at how spacious yet cozy the rooms were. The photographs on the website hardly do it justice. The view was magnificent... overlooking the Elbe river and Dresden in the valley below. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for preparing light snacks or brewing coffee in the morning. And the bathroom had a real shower!

All in all, the Sunnyside villa exceeded our expectations, and I would recommend this lovely home-away-from-home to anyone. My husband and I plan to return and stay in the garden house on our next trip.

Fabulous property, fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week here with our three children aged 6, 4 and 3. The accommodation is spacious and bright with a perfect mix of charm and comfort. The "mummy and daddy bedroom" is enormous with amazing views.
The property is on top of a hill, making you feel that you have escaped the hustle and bustle of the world. Great walks can be found on your doorstep and a park and retaurant a little further up the hill. A brilliant location in between Dresden and Saxon Switzerland (20 mins to both) and lots of other days out close by. This is a beautiful part of Germany to discover and explore.
Harriet and Peter have created a truly lovely place to stay here, with care and attention to detail, we will most definitely return.

Tolles Domizil über Himmelfahrt

  • 5 of 5
Wir sind eine größere Gruppe, die sich alle Jahre über Himmelfahrt trifft, um eine andere Gegend zu erkunden. Diesmal wollten wir nach Dresden, und wir brauchen immer eine große Unterkunft. Diesmal war es nicht nur groß, sondern auch großartig und toll gelegen: Schloss Pillnitz quasi vor der Haustür, tolle Radtourentfernung nach Dreden und ins Elbsandsteingebirge!
Die Unterkunft ist so liebevoll hergerichtet mit ganz viel Liebe zum Detail, ohne kitschig zu sein. Die Besitzer haben wert darauf gelegt, die Vergangenheit des Hauses behutsam mit der jetzigen Nutzung als Feriendomizil in Einklang zu bringen. Die Fotos geben schon einen guten Eindruck, aber die Wirklichkeit ist noch mal schöner.
Geheimtipp ist das Gartenhaus, eine preisgünstige Erweiterung der Schlafplätze für unsere 10-köpfige Gruppe.
Der Garten bietet ohnehin viele Möglichkeiten der Entspannung und war für die Kinder ein toller Ort zum Spielen und Entdecken.
Die Vermieter sind sehr angenehm, hilfsbereit und interessiert, ohne aufdringlich zu sein: ich denke, sie sind einfach so, wie sie es sich selbst bei eigenen Urlauben von Vermieterseite wünschen.
Wir wünschen alles Gute für die Zukunft und geben die Empfehlung für diesen Geheimtipp gerne weiter.

Wohlfühldomizil mit idyllischem Jahrhundertcharme

  • 5 of 5
Schon die Beschreibung im Inserat hat Lust auf Sunnyside gemacht- im über 100 Jahre alten Landsitz zu wohnen, rundum Ausblicke in die Natur zu genießen, nachts Dresdens Lichtermeer im Elbtal zu entdecken und sich an denen des aufgestellten Weihnachtsbaumes zu erfreuen, dabei wohligen Klängen aus der guten Musikanlage zu lauschen ist dann noch um ein vielfaches schöner. Für ein Weihnachtsfest mit erwachsenen Kindern hat es uns an nichts gefehlt oder konnte vorab besprochen werden. 170 qm mit Kamin, 2 Eßbereichen, Wohlfühlbetten, sympatischen Holzdielen, Küche mit Spülmaschiene und Backofen- alles angenehm beheizt, von Kerzenschein oder von Sonnenlicht durchflutet, schufen Bedingungen für ein behagliches Weihnachtsfest. Einkäufe können mit dem Auto in 10 min Entfernung getätigt werden. Oder man steigt den Hausberg nach Pillnitz hinab, um dort Schloßanlagen zu bestaunen oder den Reiz eines gewachsenen Weinbergortes auf sich wirken zu lassen. Der angrenzende Laubwald oder die hügelige Wiesenlandschaft vor der Haustür laden zu Spaziergängen ein. In 25 Min erreicht man Dresdens Innenstadt, um Weihnachtsmärkte oder die legendäre Weihnachtliche Vesper am 23.12. vor der Frauenkirche zu besuchen. Ein besonderes Highlight war der Besuch des Hosterwitzer Krippenspiels am Hl Abend. Ein Besuch im Winter läßt erahnen, wieviele Ausflugsmöglichkeiten sich von Sunnyside aus im Sommer anbieten: Exkursionen in das Elbsandsteingebirge, Radtouren auf dem Elberadweg, ausgedehnte Spaziergänge auf den Elbhängen, Dresdens Alt- und Neustadt entdecken oder im romantischen Garten einfach nur die Seele baumeln lassen.
Wer einen besonderen Ort mit Geschichte und die liebevolle Ausstattung der Vermieter zu schätzen weiss, ist hier gut aufgehoben.

Familientreffen im zauberhaften Ambiente

  • 5 of 5
Schon bei der Buchung wussten wir es: Die Villa Sunnyside würde der perfekte Ort für unser Familientreffen sein und es war so! Die Wirklichkeit übertraf bei weitem unsere Erwartungen und war viel eindrucksvoller als auf den Bildern. Der 4-tägige Aufenthalt wird uns allen unvergesslich bleiben. Die Räumlichkeiten, die sehr geschmackvoll und auserlesen eingerichtet sind, mit allem Komfort, haben massgeblich zum guten Gelingen unseres Treffens von vier Geschwistern mit Partnern (alle über 65 jung) beigetragen. Die herzliche Gastfreundschaft, die wundervolle Ambiente der sehr grosszügigen Wohnung, die Zimmer bestückt mit frischen Blumen, der weitläufige zauberhafte in seiner natürlichen Art belassene Park mit seinen vielen Sitzplätzen, welche zu lauschigen Gesprächen oder Ausruhen eingeladen hat, haben jeden Tag zum Erlebnis werden lassen.
Gut ausgeruht in bequemen grossen Betten, in ruhiger Umgebung, nach reichhaltigem Frühstück, welches wir in der sehr gut bestückten gemütlichen Küche zubereitet haben, am grossen Tisch im Kaminzimmer Platz für uns alle, so startete jeder Tag in ein neues Abenteuer, das sehenswerte Schloss Pillnitz mit Schlosspark, die Fähre über die Elbe und dann mit Strassenbahn in die Kultur Stadt Dresden mit all den Sehenswürdigkeiten, die Besichtigung der Bastei, die Schifffahrt mit dem Raddampfer zurück nach Pillnitz, sehr eindrücklich auf der Elbe vorbei an schönen Villen, an den drei Schlössern, und viel Natur. Wir hätten gerne noch mehr ausgekundschaftet, aber vier Tage waren einfach nicht genug Zeit, um noch mehr von der sehenswerten Umgebung aufzunehmen. Unseren Abschied krönten wir mit einem kleinen kulinarischen Höhepunkt in der "Naturschänke", die mit einem entspannenden Fussmarsch von der Villa Sunnyside bequem zu Fuss erreicht werden kann. Wir werden sicher wieder zukünftig im Hause Villa Sunnyside zu Gast sein und wir denken, dass auch die zukünftigen Gäste so wie wir begeistert sein werden. Ja, wir empfehlen es allen, die das Besondere schätzen und lieben. Die Villa Sunnyside ist die richtige Adresse dafür. Wir danken im Namen unserer Geschwister für die uns entgegengebrachte Gastfreundschaft und sehen uns bestimmt wieder.
Herzlich Brigitte und Günter aus der Schweiz
