None of us (4 adults 2 children) wanted to come home at the end of our two week stay. Loved it loved it loved it!!! Thank you Christine for letting us share you beautiful home, we will be back!

We really loved the location with the lovely sunrises and sets, Christine and her family were just perfect hosts, and we really enjoyed revisiting all the regional gems with a comfortable and welcoming home to come back to. And when we just wanted to laze around it was nice to listen to real German rural life all around. Look forward to seeing everyone again Steve
