Wunderbar ist fast untertrieben

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist im Original noch entzückender als auf den Fotos. Mit viel Liebe wurde es von Nancy dekoriert und weihnachtlich geschmückt, sodass wir uns ab der ersten Sekunde wohlgefühlt haben. Vor Allem die geschmackvolle Weihnachtsdekoraktion und der selbstgebackene Kuchen gaben uns das Gefühl bei lieben Freunde zu Gast zu sein. Das Haus bot uns massig Platz für 4 erwachsene Personen 1 Hund, aber auch an den Tagen als wir zu sechst waren konnten wir das Haus genießen ohne uns gegenseitig auf den Füßen zu stehen. Die Küchenausstattung ist für 6 Personen üppig bemessen und gab uns die Möglichkeit täglich gut zu kochen. Sauna und Tischkicker, sowie die luxuriöse Badewanne, vertrieben uns die Zeit am verregneten Neujahrstag. Nancy war für alle Anliegen jederzeit eine kompetente Ansprechpartnerin und hat uns gute Ausflugstipps gegeben.

Vielen lieben Dank für die wunderbare Zeit in diesem Haus. Man fühlt sich wie in einem Museum, genießt aber gleichzeitig den allerbesten Standard. Das Haus ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und es war nach unseren Wanderungen in der traumhaft schönen Landschaft bei leider extrem kalten Wetter immer eine Freude, nach " Hause" zu kommen und es sich mit Kamin und Sauna gemütlich zu machen. Die Vermieterin ist sehr nett und hat uns mit allerlei Köstlichkeit aus ihrem Garten verwöhnt. Wir kommen gerne mal wieder!

Truly 5 Star

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful. Superb house for anyone but especially those who enjoy historical properties. Beautifully presented. Very well equipped. Spotless. Delightful owners who made us feel really welcome. Excellent area for walking and cycling with castles, canals, cherry orchards, many interesting towns and villages, fine old buildings and Alsace wine. Would highly recommend this lovely house.

Unbelievable! This place is incredible, we had such a wonderful time. We have discovered our new favorite place to go. The pictures do not do justice to all that this place has to offer. Pictures cannot capture the ambiance of the house or the region. The people were so friendly, and were willing to share the secrets of the Alsace that are not written in the travel books. I only wish that I could rate it with more stars.

Hervorragend, mehr als 5 Sterne verdient!

  • 5 of 5

Meine Tochter, unsere 2 Hunde und ich haben wundervolle und erholsame Tage in diesem zauberhaften Ambiente verbracht. In diesem Haus fühlt man sich von der ersten Sekunde an super wohl und willkommen. Der schöne Garten lädt zum entspannen ein und man genießt eine wunderbar ruhige Zeit. Alles was man braucht ist vorhanden. Die Vermieter sind sehr liebevolle Menschen und zum Empfang bekamen wir einen selbstgebackenen Kuchen und frische Eier von den eigenen Hühnern. Dieses Haus ist ohne jegliche Vorbehalte sehr zu empfehlen. Wir werden auf jeden Fall gerne wiederkommen, da man sich hier mehr als wohl fühlt. Es grüssen Amelie, Benji, Costa und Angelika

Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Eine Woche Familienurlaub an Ostern in diesem liebevoll gestalteten Haus brachte uns Erholung pur. Wir, d.h. unsere Kinder (13 und 14) und unser Hund, haben uns äußerst wohlgefühlt. Die herzliche Gastgeberin (nochmals Danke für die Kuchen, Tips und vieles mehr) kümmert sich bei Bedarf um alles, mit dem Ziel, dass ihre Gäste sich wohlfühlen und ihren Urlaub genießen können.
