The apartment has a very well equipped kitchen, amazing lighting options and was spotlessly clean. Comfy bed, good shower, lovely living space. It is reasonably close to main roads, and easy to drive around. Beautiful walks out the back of the street. Really good price compared with other options in the area.

The garden is large and scenic. The village of Seelbach is small but full of friendly people. The nearest supermarket is around 4 miles and bars around 2. We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks and got from it exactly what we wanted, peace, quiet and relaxation. 100% recommended.
