Down a long windy road to a cluster of farmhouses and with a lovely balcony on which we enjoyed the evening air. Surrounded by trees in a lovely valley with children playing outside it was great. my colleagues and i were on business attending the Gartenfest show in Eichenzell and this was the prefect place to unwind after the show with nothing to disturb our sleep. The appartment was clean and inviting and nice and cool most of the time after we had been standing in the sun all day! Recommend it to anyone who wants peace and quiet and some time to themselves.
