About Petra Diez

My name is Petra and I graduated from the Institute of Tourism of Salzburg and our motto is Customer Service, we love to please and are happy when our guests are fully satisfied.

Petra Diez purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Petra Diez chose Friesenheim

Since I was a child, I fell in love with this house. We took the initiative in 2011. We love interacting with our guests and the beauty and original charm of this historic abode, which has been inhabited for 70 years, deserved to be showcased to all our guests.

What makes this cottage unique

Very quiet area, 100 m from the canal, far in the Ried even if all the activities that the cities have to offer are very close.
