Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful, restful time in the Schonwald apartment. The view was as beautiful as a postcard. It was very well-furnished -- every detail has been thought of. It was also convenient base to explore the nearby towns of Triberg, Freiburg and Furtwangen. The city of Schonwald really gives one a feeling of being in the Black Forest. Overall, we had a fantastic week!

Fantastic apartment in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Black Forest region and we were certainly not disappointed. The apartment was spacious (plenty of room for a family of 5) spotlessly clean and very well equipped with amazing views. The balcony at the front of the apartment was sunny whichever time of day you chose to sit out there. The indoor pool was enjoyed particularly by our children too and apart from 1 occasion we had it completely to ourselves. We enjoyed Triberg outdoor pool and also visiting the waterfalls in the town. A trip to Gutach and the rodelbahn provided lots of fun. We would highly recommend a visit to Lake Konstanz and the spa pool there. The owners and caretakers were absolutely lovely and made communication and organising the holiday very easy. Thank you for a brilliant holiday.

Spacious apartment with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic base to explore this beautiful area. Our week in the Black Forest has flown by and I'm sure we've only scratched the surface of things to do.

We've been up some of the area highest mountains...Feldberg, Kandel and Schauinsland, sailed around Lake Titisee, tried out numerous cable cars and chair lifts, rode the Hasenhorn coaster and covered a lot of kilometres on foot. The cuisine has been great, we enjoyed your local pizzeria, found a lovely restaurant at Landwasser with fantastic views and have eaten plenty of Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. The diet starts next week!!

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely apartment, You seem to have thought of everything to make your guests feel at home, including excellent wifi ( much appreciated by our teenage daughter!).The apartment is spacious with fabulous views of the Schonwald Valley from the roof terrace and so well equipped.

Thank you also to Heinz-Jurgen for his warm welcome.

We look forward to returning to the Black Forest in the future and your apartment would be our first choice.

Can not fault this apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just back from another week here... nothing more to say really than fabulous apartment that is spotless. In a great location for lovely walks... only used the car once to drive to Europa Park. All arrangements and booking incredibly efficient. Can not recommend this apartment highly enough. Thanks again for another lovely week. The Robertson family.
