Traumurlaub im Pfälzer Wald

  • 5 of 5

Anfang September verbrachte ich einen Kurzurlaub (5 Tage) mit meinem Hund in diesem schönen, sehr gepflegten Haus in der oberen Wohnung. Die Beschreibung hat nicht zuviel versprochen: das komplett renovierte Haus liegt idyllisch am Ortsrand direkt am Wald mit einer traumhaften Aussicht auf den Pfälzer Wald, die man sowohl von der Terrasse der unteren Wohnung wie auch von der großen Dachterrasse der oberen Wohnung genießen kann.

Wer die Stille und die Natur liebt und trotzdem gern komfortabel wohnt, wird kaum einen besseren Platz finden.

Beide Wohnungen, ich durfte auch die untere Wohnung besichtigen, sind sehr geschmackvoll mit hochwertigen Möbeln eingerichtet. Alles wurde mit sehr viel Liebe aufeinander abgestimmt. In der bestens ausgestatteten Küche kann man wunderbar kochen und wer nach dem Wandern den Staub abwaschen will, findet ein tolles Badezimmer vor.

Wandern kann man direkt von der Haustür aus, es gibt ein ausgeschildertes Wanderwegenetz.

Vielen Dank für den herzlichen Empfang an die Vermieter, sie waren jederzeit für mich da.

Es war wie Urlaub bei guten Freunden und ich freue mich schon jetzt darauf wiederzukommen - in das Ferienhaus „Zum alten Forsthaus“!

Traumhaft schönes Ferienhaus am Waldrand

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren in diesem Sommer zum ersten mal mit zwei Familien für eine Woche im alten Forsthaus.

Insgesamt waren wir mit 4 Erwachsenen und 4 Kindern zwischen 3 und 5 dort.

Das Haus ist traumhaft schön, außerordentlich sauber und gepflegt und lässt keine Wünsche offen.

Wir wurden von der Gastgeberin herzlich empfangen und herumgeführt. Schlüsselübergabe und Kommunikation war stets offen, freundlich und sehr unkompliziert.

Das Haus besteht aus zwei separaten Wohnungen (je eine pro Stockwerk), so dass auch die eine Familie noch etwas ausschlafen kann, selbst wenn die andere schon wach ist...:-)

Im unteren Stockwerk ist ein wunderbarer und großer Wintergarten in dem alle zusammen an einem Tisch (an einer Tafel) essen können.

Die Terrasse (inklusive Grill etc) ist auch perfekt möbliert und der riesige Garten am Hang zum Toben wunderbar.

Das Haus ist das letzte am Weg, bevor es zum Wald geht und daher ruhig und absolut kinderfreundlich gelegen (hier kann man noch auf der Straße spielen).

Trotzdem gibt die Gegend viel her und man kann im nahe gelegenen Badesee (10 Minuten Autofahrt) tolle Tage verbringen. Auch der Wald lädt zum erkunden ein, schon am ersten Tag haben wir zum Entzücken der Kids eine kleine "Höhle" entdeckt (Mathildenruh).

Es war ein wunderbarer Urlaub und wir bedanken und sehr für die schöne Zeit!

Liebe Grüße aus Frankfurt!

Stille,Natur, Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten dieses wunderschöne Haus zu zweit allein-Luxus pur!!! Nach einem liebevollen Empfang überwältigte uns die Stille und die umgebende Natur. Wir hatten noch nie ein so schönes Ferienhaus, es war alles vorhanden was man braucht, es ist äußerst geschmackvoll und hochwertig mit viel Liebe eingerichtet, wir fühlten uns daheim. Familie Zwick war jederzeit für uns zu erreichen ( wir waren ohne Auto unterwegs). Ein besonderer Höhepunkt war der Waldspaziergang mit Herrn Zwick und seinen fachmänischen Erläuterungen. So bemerkten wir manches, was uns vorher entgangen war. Einen herzlichen Dank an Frau Zwick für den Abschiedsabend. Wir wollen wiederkommen mit Freunden und Hund.

a Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten 2 Wochen in diesem wunderschönen Haus.

Die Beschreibung versprach nicht zuviel; die Lage ist ruhig und idyllisch dierekt am Wald, die Aussicht von der Terasse traumhaft.

Die Einrichtung ist sehr gemütlich und komfortabel, Küche und Bad sind bestens ausgestattet.

Wanderungen sind direkt vom Haus aus möglich, wer möchte, kann auch das Elsass und die Weinstrasse erkunden oder Burgen besichtigen und dabei die Vergangenheit wieder lebendig werden lassen.

Ein besonderes Highlight war für uns der Spaziergang mit dem Förster

durch den Wald, den wir sehr genossen haben .

Auch Hunde fühlen sich hier wie im Paradies, unsere wollten jedenfalls nicht mehr nach Hause

Wir haben Ruhe und Natur gesucht und gefunden, haben jede Sekunde unseres Aufenthaltes genossen und uns super erholt. Ein herzliches Dankeschön an Familie Zwick, die durch ihre liebevolle Betreuung dafür gesorgt haben, dass wir uns so wohl gefühlt haben. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder.

Wir waren nun ein zweites Mal in diesem einmalig schönen Haus und genossen vom ersten bis zum letzten Augenblick die Annehmlichkeiten und Vorzüge der Wohnung mit Kamin (wetterbedingt!) und der Terrasse mit Blick in diese herrliche Landschaft.Ganz schnell vergaßen wir die Hektik und die Geräusche der Stadt.Dafür gab es Wild,das Summen der Bienen und das Rauschen der Bäume.Was will man mehr!!!!Sehr gut erholt und mit einem ganz großen und herzlichen Dankeschön an Familie Zwick,die sich so rührend und hilfsbereit um uns kümmerten.Es konnte einfach nicht besser sein. Für das nächste Jahr steht unsere Buchung schon!Liebe Fam. Zwick vielen Dank für diese sehr erholsame Zeit.

Wir waren mit der ganzen Familie in diesem aussergewöhnlichen Haus zu Gast und haben gesellige Stunden im Wintergarten bei wohliger Wärme des Ofens verbracht. Der Blick über die Wälder war wie Indian Summer. Herrlich, diese unberührte Natur. Wir haben die Ruhe gesucht und in der Natur gefunden. Es war toll. Danke Fam. Zwick
