We wanted an apartment on the ground floor , which was quiet and had a patio to sit outside This apartment had everything. The Patio was south facing and looked out over the neighbouring gardens , allowing us to enjoy the sunshine the whole day . Annette was a good host, her English was very good and she was able to answer all our questions , she helped all she could to make our holiday more enjoyable, Gaienhofen is only a small village but, is has a supermarket, a bakers , two restaurants , and a café on the lake side. The cycle tracks along the lake are very easy , for more of a challenge there are plenty tracks if you go inland, We would certainly recommend staying here. Thanks again Annette

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Everything is provided in the house, especially in the kitchen which had every high-end appliance and implement we needed. The house is large, well furnished, spotless, with great attention to detail. There is an outside deck where you can sit and read / eat, with a peaceful water feature. Florian, who speaks English, and his mother were very welcoming and helpful. Thanks for the wine and chocolates! A car is needed although everyone seems to cycle. We enjoyed taking the ferry into Constance. There is a local bakery three minutes walk from the house. There are good restaurants in Moos, about 10 minute drive away. Only downside would be if there were 6 people, they would share one (large) shower room as there is no en suite.

The location is lovely with tranquil views across the garden. The apartment is well located with views of beautiful Lake Constance just over the hill. There are plenty of attractive and historically interesting villages within easy driving distance. This is a good place from which to explore the countryside and appreciate the beauty of the area. As we are on holidays from Australia and do not speak German, we did rely on the internet for information and communication. Although there were some problems with the strength of the signal, Waltraud was very helpful and determined to fix the problem. Thank you, Waltraud, for a very enjoyable week.
