The large ground floor has everything you need. The next floor has a single bedroom, bathroom with washing machine and extra large double bedroom from where you go to the single attic room ..perfect for children! We visited Brumath, Obernai, Hagenhau, Strasbourg and Freiburg in Germany. The Italian restaurant was excellent which is just across the road. There is another restaurant which is ok called Langhof, they do very good Tarte Flambé but mostly vegetarian foods on the rest of the menu. Parking is next to the house. Supermarket in Brumath is 3 miles away. 45 mins from Baden Baden Airport. We would definitely return. Thank you x

It is light-filled, clean, well-maintained and the location was wonderful--calm, quiet, and with a spectacular view! Claudine and Christian were perfect hosts with suggestions of places to visit and generous offerings from their kitchen. We are still talking about the wonderful bread that Christian delivered to us still warm from his oven and the tart that Claudine made later that day! I cannot imagine anyone not loving this property. We would love to return someday.
