They are lovely people, very friendly and on hand if they were needed. the property is a 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor of a beautiful alpine house in beautiful quiet surroundings. It is lovingly decorated and it felt like a home. The apartment had everything we needed for our lovely holiday. The owners live upstairs and they gave us our privacy. The garden is lovely and private. We could not have wished for a better place for our holiday. We recommend this place to anyone. Schonach itself is a lovely little town and it is pleasure to walk around. Triberg is near Schonach and is a beautiful Cuckoo clock centre with many pretty building shops, restaurants and cafes. Everything was lovely. Thank you

The owner was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. The view from the balcony is breathtaking. It was a pleasure to watch the sunrise and the sunset from our own private balcony. There were four adults who shared this apartment and we all agreed it was wonderful. We used the apartment as a base to explore all of the Black Forest region. We went to the town of Triberg,Waterfall,Schwarzwaldmuseum; Gutach to see Vogtsbauernhof the open air museum, Lake Constance, Sigmaringen Castle, went into France, Burg Hohenzollern,Schonach, to name a few of the things we did. Ate at Gasthof Wilhelmshohe, Burg Waldolph Cafe, Zur Lilie Cafe. We would recommend this to anyone.
