About the property

OG 1: bedroom, bathroom, large room with gallery - unique natural look - LAST MINUTE!

The individually designed apartment - 4 * according to DTV classification - is located in Paretz, a district of the manageable 800 year old city Ketzin on the Havel. Historically and even today forms Paretz a bridge between the historically developed region Berlin-Potsdam and the picturesque Havelland.

The duplex apartment with 2 bedrooms and sleeping gallery is lovingly furnished in country house style. Due to its location on the top floor there is a picture by the big round window that is always changing between the views in the Diversified Havelländische primordial landscape, vast meadows, forests, rivers and lakes, vast habitats with the variety of animals of all kinds opened. Flocks of birds and wildlife and the vastness of the sky, with its mix of sunshine and clouds can be heard equally from here, watch and enjoy.

The apartment has a spacious, light-flooded room with modern kitchen, adjoining dining area and a bright, comfortable living area. Here you will also find a cozy, slightly elevated and cushioned reading niche with its own lighting and a view into the open countryside.

A wooden staircase leads to a spacious refuge on the gallery, which - with two beds - invites you to read, play or sleep. The beds can be easily moved if necessary (small rolls) to use the free area during the day as a playground for children.

In the bedroom you will find a double bed, a spacious closet (and a small desk for your laptop - still in preparation). The double bed measures approx 205 cm x 190 cm, pillows and blankets are lined with natural-down.

The kitchen contains a stove (Bauknecht) with ceramic hob, extractor hood with exhaust air (!) outside, dishwasher (Siemens) and a generous fridge / freezer (about 260 l) from Bosch. The basic equipment includes u. a. a 28 cm stainless steel quality pan as well as all the utensils you would like to cook for your hobbies. The porcelain country-style house is from the Villeroy & Boch.

Washing: on request you can use washer and dryer, they are located directly in a utility room next to your entrance.

Facilities also include a modern HiFi Radio / CD with USB connection and plug for iPhone, a TV with DVD as well as a wide range of adult and children's books for cozy reading evenings and selected CDs with jazz and classical music.

For the warm season is also a nice outdoor seating available. Early risers can observe the sunrise and enjoy the first morning coffee. Or how about having a barbecue with sausages from our butcher in the near Ketzin?

Excursions into the surrounding and distant surroundings are a paradise for adventures diverse nature: swimming in a 10 minute walk to the Havel with its clear water and a sandy beach for children, the water at the point only 20 cm deep. Supervision is still necessary of course - like at the seaside.

Rental of canoes, paddle boats, motor boats, bikes 2 - 4 km away. Boat trips to Potsdam and Brandenburg.

Do you understand why our house the name 'Arcadia' wearing? 'Arcadia' is a country where according to ancient legends of the shepherd god Pan once drove his funny mischief. So the Roman poet Virgil wrote (70-19. Chr.) By shepherds, who played flute, compacted and sang and led a life in harmony with nature and their gods, nymphs, satyrs and other hybrid creatures. It is a beautiful landscape with shady forests, softly whispering streams, caves and caverns, with sun-drenched meadows - like a beautiful garden. Later described in the Renaissance poet and painter only in Italy, and later throughout Europe again Arcardien antiquity. It was idealized: as an aesthetic fiction and utopian vision luck. The courtyard of the Medici was at this time a work of art, a desired landscape by arcardischem model. The garden design developed to full bloom, a distant landscape is inaccessible for centuries a parable of the human longing for a better world, for a life in harmony with itself, the nature and the gods. From the Renaissance to the 19th century claimed Arcadien his place in art history. Starting from the poetry and landscape painting, it became the leitmotif of the modern garden design. Arcardien, the land of love and longing, is now almost forgotten ... They begin to discover what can give this wonderful spot of inspiration.

Für ein Kurzurlaub zu empfehlen; Entspannung PUR

  • 4 of 5

Die Lage ist Top, vom Standort her alles sehr gut zu erreichen. Schöne Einrichtung, vielleicht sollte die TV-Anlage auf den neusten Stand gebracht werden. Sonst war alles gut, Vermieter sehr nett; Preis-Leistungsverhältnis TOP !!

Also klare Empfehlung für die Wohnung !!

Owner's Response: Schön zu hören, daß Sie sich wohlgefühlt haben. Wir werden Ihre Anregung gerne aufnehmen und unsere TV Anlage prüfen. Nicht ganz vermeiden lassen sich allerdings die reduzierte Anzahl der Sender - wir sind noch nicht an das Kabelnetz angeschlossen, wir leben im Außenbereich - mit all seinen Vor-und kleinen Nachteilen. Was sich technisch optimieren läßt, werden wir prüfen lassen. Danke noch einmal für Ihre Aufmerksamkeit!

Gemütlich, ruhig, komfortabel

  • 5 of 5

Wer in Natur und in der Nähe vom Wasser Urlaub machen will, der ist bei Hollmanns genau richtig. Bis nach Potsdam fährt man in die Stadtmitte oder nach Sanssouci allerdings mind. 25 Minuten. Ketzin/Paretz ist sehr ruhig und nicht touristisch. trotzdem gibt es einen riesiges, modernes Edeka, wo man alles Nötige bekommen kann.

Owner's Response: Dieser Kontrast von Ruhe in purer Natur mit Wasser und - in 25 Minuten nach Sanssouci (Friedrich II. /der "Große" genannt) mitten in Potsdam, dann aber auch in nur 35 Minuten in Charlottenburg, in 50 Minuten im KaDeWe, oder unter den Linden, Dom, Bode Museum, Potsdamer Platz, ...., Kultur pur, Architektur, quirliges Leben mit charmanten Einkehrmöglichkeiten - das führte zu unserem Entschluß von "1 statt 2" Wohnsitzen. Bei jedem Wetter und zu jeder Jahreszeit lohnende Ziele in Reichweite. Vielleicht können wir Ihnen bereits bei der Vorbereitung unsere Tipps empfehlen.

Ruhe vor den Toren Potsdams und Berlins

  • 5 of 5

Sehr ruhig gelegen, tolle Aussicht auf Landschaft und Tiere - Rehe kamen fast bis vor die Haustüre. Sympathische Vermieter, angenehme Atmosphäre. Hervorragender Ausgangspunkt für Fahrradtouren im Havelland, Baden in Flüssen und Seen, Ausflüge nach Potsdam und Berlin. Für Regentage ist genügend Lesestoff für Groß und Klein vorhanden!

Auch ohne unmittelbare Ufernähe ist im Havelland ein gutes Mückenspray empfehlenswert.

Gerne wieder!

Owner's Response: Vor den Toren von Berlin und Potsdam - und doch die Stille der Natur vor der Haustür - das bewog auch uns in 2012 hier nach Paretz umzusiedeln. Die 35 Minuten mit dem Auto nach Charlottenburg sind eben schön für Kultur, Politik und Beruf, aber dann genießen wir den Kontrast hier mit dem allmorgendlichen Schwimmen in der Havel und den verwunschenen Rad- und Wassertouren in der Weite der ursprünglichen Landschaft. Da bleibt noch viel für Ihren nächsten Besuch!

Stilvoll und ruhig in der Natur

  • 5 of 5

Wer in der Nähe von Berlin eine ruhige, stilvolle und gut ausgestattete Wohnung sucht, wird hier fündig. Die sehr freundlichen und zuvorkommenden Vermieter sind für Wünsche und Fragen jederzeit offen. Am Rande von Paretz, direkt an den Feldern kann man die absolute Ruhe genießen und ist dennoch schnell in Potsdam oder Berlin.

Paretz itself, although it is one of only 400 inhabitants, a lot to offer. The Paretz Palace and the entire place was designed in 1797 by David Gilly, the teacher of Karl Friedrich Schinkel, masters of the classical in Berlin. The place is an architectural work of art in the style of Früklassik. The castle can be visited in the summer and in winter. The premises restore-placed impress with their unique colorful, valuable wallpaper, furniture, graphics, paintings and sculptures.

In the royal box is the designed by Johann Gottfried Schadow Relief "The Apotheosis of Queen Louise," which is reminiscent of the late Queen.

Known not least as a filming location for Til Schweiger's box office hit 'small ear hare', literary salons and musical events take place again and again here.


The old royal city of Potsdam is only 15 km away. The main attraction besides the historic center beautifully restored countless parks and palaces. Sanssouci Palace, Neues Palais, Glienicke Palace and Babelsberg Palace are just some of the pearls of which is under UNESCO World Heritage protection Gesamtkunstwerk, the art-loving monarch created several generations as a "Prussian Arcadia".
