The house location is excellent. Near the city center but in a very nice and quite neighborhood. The place was perfect. Very beautiful, luxurious, very clean, and fully equipped with all Necessary things for 2 families . It made our holiday very special. Mrs Von Boyen, is very honest and kind. We strongly recommend.

                                                                                              5 of 5

It was only a few minutes' walk from the bus and railway station, and within a block of the University. The nearest supermarket was two doors away and there were several others within a few streets. There were plenty of restaurants, bar and cafes nearby, and all the sights of the city were within walking distance. The owner who lived in the same building was friendly, flexible and willing to help, though, in fact, we had no reason to contact her after we had settled in. Our queries before our visit were answered within a few minutes. We found this an excellent base for a short visit to Freiburg.
