The house has been tastefully renovated to provide high quality living spaces that not only look good but are also practical. We hope to return.

There were 3 adults and 1 child in our group and the house was perfect for us. The 2 berooms on the middle floor adjoin making it perfect for a family. The property is located no more than 5 minutes stroll from the main market place and shops. It is also full of character; wonkey walls, uneven floors etc! The parking garage is a tight squeeze for a large vehicle but if you reverse your vehicle in it's much easier to avoid the walls! Kitchen is well equipped with more than you would expect for a selfcatering property. Being English with a basic understanding of everyday german, we struggled a little with the instructions about the heating and hot water. We managed to understand the central heating but really didn't manage to get a hot shower in the mornings! I think that may be more about our incompetence rather than a fault with the apartment! I was so perfect that the only thing we problem we could raise would be with the length of the window blinds! Some of them just aren't as long as the windows so the neigbours get a good view of you in bed! We used cushions to block the gaps! We loved this place so much we're looking at returning for 2 weeks next year!
