Make holiday rental accommodation or a self catering cottage in the Black Forest, Germany your home away from home

The Black Forest is a stunning region of dramatic highlands and thick forests in the Baden-Wurttemberg state of Germany. The region, made famous for its Black Forest Gateau, cuckoo clocks and cherry schnapps, is one of the most popular places in Germany to come and relax, surrounded by stunning scenery and fully immersed in rich, traditional and exceedingly friendly culture. There are very few places in the world that manage to combine stunning scenery with engrossing customs.

                                                    Fantastic apartment

                                                    5 of 5
                                                    Firstly we had a great time and have come back to Lux planning the next year!   Our main focus was to ski, of which we were able to do except for one day. So on this very rainy day we took a tour by car, driving through many of the villages in the surrounding area. (But never found a place to buy a cuckoo clock! but did eat plenty of the local black forest gateau) This year with the 'very' local ski school we visited many different slopes and this was due to unfortunately the lack of snow, but this has actually been of a bonus for us. The apartment has everything that we required and as there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance we found no need to be cooking of an evening (after all we are on holiday)! I would also definately recommend the property to friends and family. "

                                                    fantastic week in August 2015

                                                    5 of 5
                                                    We had a brilliant week staying in the Rinkenturm apartment in August 2015. The property really is in a lovely location in Tonbach with lovely walks direct from the house which was very clean and well maintained. A great garden as well for the kids with table tennis and a swing. We certainly weren't short of things to do and the Schwarzwald plus card (in typical German style!) is comprehensive for public transport and tons of local attractions. Some great restaurants nearby with the Sattelei Wanderhutte and the Café Eickler the best and easily walkable. Mini golf at Tonbach closeby was really nice. We found everyone to be amazingly friendly and hospitable. We used the Schwarzwald plus card for the toboggan, downhill cart and tree top climbing at Mehliskopf just off the B500 High Road - which was just how you imagine the Black Forest and this part of Germany to be. Loads of outdoor pools to take the kids to each day (again with the card!) and a dip in the Sankenbach lake. Roland and Birgit were helpful and kind from the initial email and telephone call - to welcoming us when we arrived a bit late in the day! Overall a brilliant week and an area of Germany that we would love to visit again.

                                                    Good facilities in an open-plan apartment. Helpful owner. Freiburg is a great base to visit other locations in the Black Forest.
