We had a lovely week! The house is in a lovely location - ideal for cycling - away from the busy crowds of the Bodensee area. The house was surface clean but there were a lot of cobwebs under the beds and behind furniture.
The garden was a bit overgrown and needed some tending to, but it was space for the children to play and they enjoyed it. I wouldn't recommend to families with young children or toddlers as there is a steep drop (overgrown with nettles and quite slippery) at the end of the garden directly behind the swing set (my 4 year old slipped backwards off the swing and nearly rolled down it). We also gave up on the football after the ball kept rolling down said slope resulting in a 3 man rescue operation each time!
The drive is steep and gravelled (not tarmac as shown in the photos) but there is space at the bottom of the drive where you can more easily park a car.
There is a large basement with easy access from both inside the house, and outside - perfect for storing bikes and a roof box!
The washing machine and tumble dryer were in good working order but the dishwasher was a bit temperamental.
The bathrooms were clean and the bath was big enough to fit all 3 of my children in together!
Overall, we had a great week and the house was the perfect base for us. We could go cycling and there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. There is a choice of supermarkets in the local town - you will need a car.
The location is idyllic and very peaceful, surrounded by green rolling hills and country side. There is a nearby swimming lake (Badsee) that we all enjoyed very much. The children also enjoyed feeding the Goats/Pigs/Bunnies at the nearby camping site - with play area, all fun for free. There are lovely walking trails on the doorstep too. And a trampoline, if any energy was left.
King Ludwig's Schlosses are driving distance away and so is Lake Constance (Bodensee). And much more....
The accommodation itself is very spacious, clean and comfortable. Veronika is an excellent hostess and assisted us with recommendations on what to do and where to go.
We had a fantastic holiday!
