The apartment is located in a small town about 15 miles outside Cologne. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodated our every need. He gave us some very helpful tips on how to further enhance our stay in Cologne. We are already planning our return trip.

The train was so close and Claudia's warm welcome and clear instructions (in English, thank you so much!)on things in the house and getting the train were wonderful. Gerd's communication before we arrived was again in English for us and enabled us to feel we would survive (my children speak a bit of German but my husband and i don't)! The house is spacious, clean, comfortable and generously stocked with essentials (down to Earl Gray teabags, dishwasher tablets and beer!!) We really appreciated not having to take half our kitchen with us or do an expensive shop on arrival. The fabulous electric shutters ensured a wonderful nights sleep....we hadn't had lie ins like that for years! Family train day ticket into Cologne was a few stops and under 14 Euros. Very grateful for Sat Nav and google maps/city map apps to help us find our way around Cologne and Bonn.
