Our welcome to Weitblick was a wonderful one. The contemporary house is stunning and spotlessly clean and the welcome from our host, Carmen was effusive and charming. The Black Forest is extremely beautiful and it has some particularly fine restaurants. The Roessle restaurant in the village of Elzach serves extremely well prepared and reasonably priced food given the quality. For shopping, nearby Frieburg is beautifully elegant and if you choose to cook at the house the kitchen is well equipped and the Edeka store nearby provides a wide range of high quality provisions.
Whilst we enjoy the Black Forests fabulous driving roads we took the train to Basel in Switzerland (using our free rail pass that comes with the holiday tax). The station is a 10 minute walk from the house and the service is hourly.
However you don't need to travel far to see the views of the Black Forest as the views are spectacular from the terrace (accessed from both the bedroom and sitting room). A perfect spot to read or drink the local wine.
For us Elzach and Weitblick provided a fabulous holiday and the Black Forest provided great opportunities to explore, eat great food, drink wonderful wines and truly relax. Thankyou to Carmen and Daniel for your enthusiasm and expertise.
The property was easy to find and the apartment was clean and well-kept. It felt large and airy and the sofa on the balcony was my favourite spot. The children loved having the pool in the basement. The views over the golf course and the park were lovely. Most everyday necessities could be found in town, which was a quick walk. The town itself is well-situated for visiting most of the region's tourist sites, as long as you are prepared to drive for about an hour. One thing to be aware of is that the shops do not take foreign bank cards/credit cards, only german ones, so we go through a lot more cash than we expected. All in all, a wonderful week in the sun.
