Beautiful, spacious, former farmhouse ("Brunnenhaus"), energetically completely refurbished, with two bedrooms and a large living-dining room with open kitchen on dreamlike Hofreite (with former stables, residential house, barn, large yard and huge orchard) in the old town of Mainz-Finthen, the beautiful district of the state capital of Rhineland-Palatinate. With giant garden, courtyard with quality of stay (cobblestone and stone walls) & south terrace.
Very quiet and yet very centrally located (11 minutes by bus to Mainz main station, 20 minutes by car to the airport), supermarkets, banks, cafes and restaurants are within walking distance. A place to feel good for families and couples as well as for business travelers.
Equipment / room layout
The "Brunnenhaus" offers two bedrooms, a large living-dining area with open kitchen (incl. Dishwasher) as well as a modern daylight bath (incl. Bathtub and washing machine). It is accessed via the Mediterranean courtyard and is in the interior (except in the bathroom and hall) fully equipped with fine natural wood flooring.
On the first floor there is the daylight bathroom as well as the two bedrooms. The bigger one is u. a. furnished with a large double bed (1.80 x 2m) and a sofa, which can also be used as a comfortable sofa when unfolded. The smaller bedroom is u. a. furnished with two single beds (each 0.9 x 2m).
The spacious living-dining area on the ground floor with open kitchen-living room offers a large table, comfortable (sleeping) sofas and a sideboard with a large Smart TV. In addition to a Senseo coffee pod machine, the kitchen also offers a classic filter coffee machine to name the two most important assecoires first. In addition, it has a Kühlschrak, an induction cooker, an oven with integrated microwave and a dishwasher. Of course Internet is available throughout the house via a Wi-Fi connection.
The "standard capacity" for the "Brunnenhaus" is four people who can sleep in the double bed and the two single beds. However, if all existing sleep options are used, the house offers enough space for up to ten people. If the one bathroom is not enough for a larger group size, then in one of the outbuildings in the courtyard on request a Spartan, but functional additional toilet is available.
Further information about the house
In the energetic core refurbishment of the 1890 built former farm building, we have placed great emphasis on ecology and sustainability: The building is heated by a pellet heating system, the walls are painted with white bio-silicate paint, the wooden floorboards are oiled ( instead of painted), and the electricity comes from the roof of the day.
Yard and garden
The sheltered garden, along which no roads lead along, with its fruit and flower meadows and lawns is a place for adults to relax and for children a large adventure playground including giant trampoline and a large, covered with quarry stone sandpit. There is also a fire pit for barbecues or for "just-so-comfortable-sitting together". The garden can be used by all residents of the Hofreite.
Although it is very quiet in the yard and garden or on the entire property, the Hofreite is located in the middle of the old town. Nevertheless, the main street with supermarkets (eg tegut, Rewe), bakeries (including one with its own bakery, which has often been awarded as one of Germany's best), various restaurants, cafes and bus and tram stops within a few minutes walk ,

Mainz as a holiday destination
With its more than 2 000 years of history, Mainz is one of the oldest cities in Germany, as evidenced by many historical buildings and the historic old town. You can practically not dig a hole in the city without bumping into the Romans. In the surrounding area are many beautiful landscapes and hiking trails, such as the idyllic World Heritage Site "Upper Middle Rhine Valley" with its many castles, which you can also easily pass through with a pleasure boat on the Rhine. In Rheinhessen there are also many hiking trails and in a dominated by viticulture landscape with many Strausswirtschaften, which invite you to linger. Immediately after leaving the village, the Lennebergwald invites you to go hiking or jogging, and the idyllically situated "Café am Turm" is located in the immediate vicinity of the landmark "Lenneberturm" (see photos).
