We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Schmalkalden, and Ulf could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful both before, during and after our trip. This included picking us up from the station, and taking us there on leaving, as we were travelling by public transport. The apartment is in very good condition, appeared to have been recently decorated and was equipped with every modern facility you could need. We particularly enjoyed the sun-lounge, where we could relax and watch the sun go down. Ulf also supplied detailed information about the town and possible walks and activities. The little town itself is charming and interesting, and set in lovely countryside.
The property is well situated for exploring the area and the owners are very nice. Apart from the strange layout, e.g. the fridge freezer being in the entrance/lounge area, the apartment is very comfortable. The only downside is that the Homeaway information stated that the owners spoke a variety of languages including English but only spoke German. Our German was adequate to get through but other people may have difficulty. The property manager i.e. Belvilla Holiday Rentals may very well speak a variety of languages but they are not represented at the property in which case they should specify that the people that you will be dealing with at the property only speak German. Other than that it was a nice holiday with very nice people.
