Fijne vakantie!

  • 4 of 5

Wij (een gezin met 4 kinderen tussen 9 en 19 jaar) hebben een fijne vakantie gehad. Het huis is ruim en compleet ingericht. Het heeft een ruime tuin achter het huis waar de kinderen konden voetballen. De omgeving is mooi en afwisselend en er zijn veel wandelingen uitgezet. In het huis ligt een map met vele mogelijkheden om te doen. De buren zijn hele aardige mensen. De communicatie met de eigenaren is prima verlopen. Het is echt een aanrader als je niet in een supertoeristisch gebied op vakantie wilt. Je bent heel snel in Tsjechië, waarvan ook informatie in het huis te vinden is. Het restaurant Wirtshaus im gut in een dorpje vlakbij (Göpfersgrün) is een echte aanrader.

Authentic Bavarian holiday home in rural hamlet

  • 4 of 5

The holiday home is set on an old farm, has been lovingly restored and is very authentic and quaint. The downstairs has a real German farmhouse kitchen with plenty of room around the table for large groups of people. It has lots of farm and personal memorabilia there and recounts some of the farm’s history. The kitchen is modern and well stocked and is immaculately clean, ( as is the rest of the property.) It has whitewashed walls and original flagstone floor in places, it is very quirky and very Bavarian.

Upstairs all the bedrooms are light and bright, have both beautifully painted floors and furniture, original ceramic heaters and comfy beds. The rooms are all finished off with crochet-edged gingham curtains which give it a very homely farmhouse feel, all in all makes for a very comfortable experience.

The bathrooms were all new and modern.

The activities file in both German and English is second to none and is the best we have encountered. There is information on activities, amusements, attractions, towns, villages, spas, castles and sporting activities. There is something locally and further afield to do for everyone, young and old. The weather wasn't great while we were there but we were able to travel to many towns and castles, went cycling and swimming when there was sunshine and managed the summer luge which was brilliant. There are many miles of walks and cycle paths and the holiday home has a good selection of bikes that renters are able to use. The back garden accessed through the barn is handy for some respite and a glass of Sekt or ideal for smaller children.

We followed the owners' recommendations for restaurants which were really good, particularly the pizzeria in Wunsiedel. All in all I would recommend the holiday home, we were a party of five and there was plenty of room for us all to relax together.

Sehr liebevoll eingerichtet - die urige Küche mit Eckbank und Kachelofen im alten Stall ist total gemütlich. Auch die Schlafzimmer und das Wohnzimmer im ersten Stock sind sehr zum Wohlfühlen. Auch für acht Personen bietet die Ferienwohnung reichlich Platz und Stauraum in den Schränken. Von den Ausflügen kommt man abends richtig gern "nach Hause"! Alles prima!!!
