It is very comfortable and Sonja y Mrs.Bach are very friendly. The only inconvenience is that the washing machine is not available completly for guests, it is neccesary organize an appointment with the owner to use it and not always is easy. It is very important if you travel with children.

The apartment is within an elegant house, full of character and beautifully renovated to an exceptional standard. The interior design is very special. Every facility you could possibly think of has been provided for you, to make your stay as smooth and convenient as possible. There is a large dressing room, in addition to the two large bedrooms. The beds are very comfortable, and plenty of towels provided. Everything is perfectly clean. We particularly like the writing desk set into the corner of the lounge, with a lovely view over the garden. and the enormous table in the dining area. Gerhard and Martina are delightful owners, who again were wonderful hosts; we really enjoyed our conversation with them and their kind hospitality. They left several gifts of food and drink to welcome us too. The apartment is within easy walking distance of the beautiful town of Baden Baden (about 15 minutes), and we enjoyed walking there at least twice a day to explore the town and all it has to offer. There is nowhere quite like this, for endless gardens and walks by the river, cafes and nice hotel restaurants, or window shopping. A favourite daytime cafe of ours is the Trink Halle cafe, which can be found fairly near the Kurhaus and Casino. There areThermal Baths, with swimming for families too. We also visited the Art Gallery, which is a well designed space in which to view modern art. We hope to return to this lovely property and this town some day.

Our expectations where high, based on the pictures, but was nothing compared with real life. State of the art, clean, spacious, modern and well equipped. The location of the house was excellent, as it is located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood, a few steps from a beautiful forest and the magical lake. We can definitely recommend this luxurious holiday home to anyone, a perfect place to stay.
