It's a lovely historic home and is beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed. Hubertus was very responsive to our questions and also has a caretaker who lives next door who met us on our arrival and showed us around the house. The sauna was an unexpected bonus and we used it every day. I highly recommend the house particularly for those who prefer a quiet location.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable week exploring some of the historic sites in the area, as well as the small towns and countryside. We recommend it.
