Eine liebevoll geführte Ferienwohnung

5 of 5
Wir waren mit 6 Freundinnen zu Gast in den Sauerlandstuben und haben jede Minute genossen. Die Vermieter sind sehr zuvorkommend und uns blieb kein Wunsch offen. Das Essen im Restaurant des Hauses ist ein absolutes Muss! Sehr leckere und frische Küche. Auf der Speisekarte findet wirklich jeder etwas - vom Veganer bis zum Steakliebhaber. Auch das Frühstück ist absolut zu empfehlen. In der Wohnung konnten wir uns Dank der vielen Zimmer wie zu Hause fühlen, hatten Gemeinschaftsräume, wo wir zu sechst bequem verweilen konnten. Trotzdem hatte jeder seine Rückzugsmöglichkeit. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Apotheke und Freizeitangebote sind in wenigen Fahrminuten zu erreichen. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und werden wieder buchen!
