For us it was great that we could book midweek, and that other family members could join us with a small extra charge. We were fortunate with weather and really enjoyed relaxing and cooling down in the pool.The flat is spacious and light and very quiet at night. It is ideal for a family or two couples. as there is enough opportunity for privacy in both rooms and access to the patio and pool from both rooms. Going into town was really easy by bus and Wuerzburg and local area has a lovely welcoming vibe. Family Tauber was very helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble, whether it was accommodating an extra person or finding an iron to smarten up the wedding outfits. Thank you for being excellent hosts and making our stay so enjoyable. We have already recommended this holiday let to family and friends. Christel and Jasmin

The house is equipped really well. Location is very quite yet still close to city center - 10 minutes by car. We really enjoyed doing grill outside in the beautiful garden. So if you wish to start your day with a breakfast outside, then have a quick ride to the city center and after a day full of sightseeing have a quite dinner with BBQ in the nice garden - this house is right for you.
