The guest appartment is located in our farm house, which is roughly 300 years old. All rooms are renovated with love and care and have wooden floors and central heating as well as a stove - for the sake of romance - in the living room.
In our garden there are chairs and a table at your disposal as well as a grilling facility.
At our little farm we have a small number of Icelandic horses, a donkey, some sheep, chicken, and ducks. Children are warmly welcomed to 'assist' feeding the animals and may sit/ride on the horses or the donkey. The flat is equiped with a guitar and a couple of books instead of a TV.
This lovely farm home was our base while we attended a friend's piano concert in Lilienfeld and for exploring the Danube valley - old castles, monasteries and wineries. Planning a European trip from the US is a bit daunting, Stephan responded promptly to my e-mails and upon arrival even rode his bike up the hillside to guide us when we were hopelessly lost (I had misplaced the exact address he had sent). He and Agnes were welcoming hosts, their son Bern showed us around the farm with its sheep, goats, chickens and horses in this idyllic setting. The apartment was immaculately clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Local roosters even provided duet wake up calls each morning! We would love to return again for a longer stay.
We came all the way from Israel and spent 2 whole weeks on this lovely little family farm. The cottage was comfortable and clean and had everything we expected, and the owners were welcoming and helpful.
The farm is located in a beautiful area, and we enjoyed our long walks in the area, and also our visits to the Danube Valley, the Melk Monastry, The Gardens in Tulln -and other nice places - all within a relatively short distance from the farm.
We decided on a very cold weekend getaway (it was around -7º to -11ºC) and our search for places to go ended when we found the Wachau valley and Hof Grunfelder. The experience was great from the get-go. They replied to our emails promptly, and when we arrived, they were expecting us with the apartment pre-warmed for our comfort. Stephan was very nice and friendly, provided us with helpful tips and insights about the local area and we even received a gift: a bottle of locally produced schnapps to keep warm...
The apartment was very clean and nice, the wood stove in the living room was not only for the romance, but provided ample heat. The bathroom was tip top, better then i had seen in some hotels, and the area is just amazing. The apartment came with everything we needed, it even had a wireless network and we could use our smartphones with it. The whole place is run organically, and the owners even offer some of their own farm produce for sale. In addition, they offer the possibility of a delicious organic breakfast for only €5 per person. Wish we knew about this before hand, as we would have definitely ordered it.
It was very easy to find, the description on the internet was very accurate, i would possibly say that the place is even better than what can be gathered from the description on the internet. The customer service we received from the owners was amazing (Agnes even went as far as to research where we could go ice skating!) Overall, despite the freezing cold we had an amazing stay and will definitely be back again.
Wir haben richtige Ferien auf dem Bauernhof verlebt. Die Vermieterfamilie ist sehr freundlich, die Ferienwohnung für eine Familie mit einem kleinen Kind sehr geräumig und auch an heißen Tagen noch recht kühl, da die Mauern ja 300 Jahre alt sind. Wir empfehlen den Hof Grünfelder gerne weiter.
In den zehn Tagen in und um Friedersdorf hat alles gestimmt. Die FeWo hat genau der Beschreibung entsprochen und war in Top-Zustand. Wenn man vom Alltagstrubel etwas Abstand gewinnen will, ist Friedersdorf genau das Richtige.
Wenn wir unsere Kinder fragen, „wo hin sollen wir in den Urlaub?“, bekommen wir sofort die Antwort „nach Österreich, an die Donau, nach Friedersdorf!“
Oh ja, wir sind Wiederholungstäter.
Auf dem Hof der Familie Grünfelder in der gemütlichen Ferienwohnung ist genug Platz für uns fünf. Und es gibt immer etwas neues zu entdecken. Ein frisch geborenes Lamm, ein Spaziergang mit den Ziegen, Fledermäuse im Dachgebälk, handzahme Hühner und natürlich die Pferde. Für uns persönlich ist die Nähe zum Bauernhofalltag, die man hier in gut dosierter Form miterleben und mitmachen darf, von großer Bedeutung. (Heuernte, Eier einsammeln, Pferde striegeln, Ziegen melken, „Almauftrieb“ der Schafe, etc.) Wie selbstverständlich werden die Kinder eingebunden (und auch die Erwachsenen).
Um die zahllosen Ausflugsmöglichkeiten in der Gegend zu erkunden, liegt dieser Hof ideal. Und anschließend kann man die Ruhe abseits vom Touristentrubel genießen.
Danke für die schönen Urlaube.
Our small village is roughly 85km west of Vienna, half way up to the ridge 'Jauerling', 300 altimeters above the UNESCO word cultural heritage Wachau. On a clear day you can spot the summits of the alps as well as the danube river passing through Wachau. Wachau is well known for vinaries and orchards. Tourism starts in spring time when apricot trees show blossoms and usually ends with the late wine harvest. Especially white wines obtain a unique bouquet on the stone terraces and attract tourisms in the same way as the medieval architecture of the villages.
Situated slightly out of Wachau our village enjoys total calmness. A couple of stroller-suitable hiking trails lead through the fields and forests of the Jaulering area. Here you can pick mushrooms, try out your mountain bike, ride a horse, or assist in the hey harvest. A lot of small restaurants offer traditional and inexpensive meals.
Für das Frühstück können Sie gerne von uns frische Eier u. hausgemachte Marmeladen beziehen, zum Bäcker ist es 1 km.
