It is modern, beautifully designed, well appointed and extremely comfortable - very peaceful too! The views from the property are superb - and from the terrace, you can see the little town of Kirchzarten nestling in the valley. Martin and Petra Tritschler were very welcoming and helpful - they live next door to the property - and got the balance just right, between giving ample privacy yet readily available when there was any enquiry. Special features - the Swedish-designed stove, which gives useful additional warmth and a homely glow - a most comfortable and firm bed and excellent kitchen and bathroom facilities. This is an excellent centre for visiting Black Forest attractions, including Freiburg, and with Kirchzarten and good local shopping just 2 miles away. Many local walks - that can be done right from the front door! We'd gladly stay in this property again and put it on our 'top ten' list!

Stunning villages, must be beautiful at Christmas! However lack of information about local attractions and no leaflets were a let down. Welcoming pack , even basic items like tea, coffee and milk would have been appreciated. But overall would not hesitate to return.
