Perfect home

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in this house the most of any place we visited while in Germany! My husband now wishes to move to Pouch 😀

The owner was very friendly, eager to help if needed. She even set up HomeAway Payment for us! And always responded to emails quickly.

The house is gorgeous and modern. There are four separate beds but only three separate rooms. No AC (most common) but also no fans, but we were there in hottest season for them. Close to a large, beautiful lake that we did not get to visit due to rainy weather.

We were able to use the washing machine which proved very necessary as luggage did not all arrive in Gemany with us. In addition, the WiFi is incredibly fast and we were all able to use it at once...even fast enough for perfect Skype calls (trying to track down our luggage) and Netflix streaming!

We made several day trips from Pouch, to Wittenburg, Berlin, and Leipzig. It is a very convenient location for visiting eastern Germany!

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Optimal für Großfamilien

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 3 Erwachsenen und 4 Kindern in der Doppelhaushälfte untergekommen, die neben 4 separaten Schlafräumen eine sehr gute Ausstattung (Waschmaschine, Spülmaschine, Induktionsherd, Backofen...) aufwies . Ruhige Wohngegend im Zentrum des Örtchen Pouch. Guter Ausgangspunkt für ausgedehnte Fahrradtouren um Goitzschesee und Muldesstausee. Nur zu empfehlen.

Toller Badeurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit im Ferienhaus Halbritter. Die Einrichtung war sehr schön, sauber und tadellos. Die Zimmeraufteilung bietet den idealen Raum für einen Gruppenurlaub, durch die vielzahl an Doppelzimmern mit bequemen Betten. Auch die Küche ließ nichts missen. Das Haus ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt zum Baden gehen und auch die Einkaufsmöglichkeit (Edeka, 5 min. Füßweg) war perfekt. Vielen Dank Familie Halbritter. Wir können das Haus nur weiter empfehlen.

Prima Ausgangspunkt, prima Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Meine kleine Familie brauchte für einen Kurzurlaub eine gut gelegene Unterkunft als Ausgangspunkt für diverse Ausflüge: z. B. Wittenberg, Wörlitzer Park, Leipzig, Petersberg, Ferropolis/Gräfenhainichen. Das Ferienhaus hat sich als ideal erwiesen. Nicht nur die Lage passte natürlich perfekt, auch die Ausstattung und das Ambiente gefielen uns sehr. Sauber und gepflegt wie man es erwarteten darf. Die gut ausgestattete Küche, die bereit liegenden Spiele, die super Infomappe zu Ausflugszielen sowie solche netten Kleinigkeiten, wie die Kurzanleitungen zu den Fernbedienungen für Fernseher/Receiver zeigen, dass Gäste wirklich willkommen sind! Ehrliches Kompliment an den Vermieter!

Kleiner Restauranttipp: Das "Kartoffelhaus Nr. 1" in Bitterfeld.
