We spent three nights in Wartburgblick, which lives up to its name - the castle overlooks the town and is easily visible from the windows. The holiday house (on two floors) is part of a larger property which is currently being worked on. There's a steep path up to the house which could cause problems to some people. However, the holiday home itself is worth the climb and appears to have been only recently renovated. Everything was in immaculate condition, with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, comfortable sitting room, excellent bedrooms and bathroom. We felt very much at home, and particularly enjoyed the personal touches left by our hosts, such as jigsaw puzzles, as well as the useful local information.
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.
