Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Swabian Jura, Germany, Your Home Away From Home

The Swabian Jura is actually the name given to the Swabian Alps, in the south of the country of Germany, leading up to the Black Forest. The highest mountain within this range reaches 1,015m and much of this part of Germany is on a plateau which is over 400m above sea level. Given the elevations above sea level here, this produces a micro-climate which makes it a little snowier than other parts of the country. Holidays in Swabian Jura are extremely popular due to the fact that this is such a beautiful part of Germany, surrounded by many interesting and historic towns to visit and plenty of different activities for you to indulge in.

In fact, it is not unusual for people to find fossils on their own land here that can date as far back as the Jurassic Period (we’re talking around 180 million years of age!). There is even a museum devoted to this Palaeontological pastime: Urwelt Museum Hauff. Other activities to enjoy in Swabian Jura include swimming, canoeing and kayaking, nature walking, abseiling, spelunking, golf, mountain biking and fishing.

Lovely quiet location

4 of 5
The property was located in a quiet country area and was very clean and well-equipped, with a pleasant outside seating area. The only issues were the beds in the second bedroom, which were more like day beds, with metal round three sides. Proper single beds would be better. Also the shower head attachment was broken, meaning that the shower could not be properly angled. Other than that we had a very pleasant stay.

Perfectly quiet and rural location

5 of 5
Stayed with twin 3yr olds, a 6 month old baby and their grand parents. Location was perfect. Children's play things freely available, the pool was perfectly sized and the rural setting was just as we wanted. The accommodation was spotless and well equipped. Advice on a local restaurant was also great and could walk to it through the woods. Thank you Ralph for making us feel very welcome The halfacre family
