Overview

About the property

Located by the lakeside, furnished with antiques, up to 4 children

We have completed the renovation of the spacious castle apartment in July 2012. There is much value laid on the stylish and high quality furnishing (oak wood floor boards, terracotta floor tiles, and antique furniture). The floor heating is operated with wood over the furnace. The shop selling firewood is right next to the apartment and is free of cost. The family bedroom has a super size double bed (1.60 x2m) and an elevated bed made of wood (carpentry work) for children. We have set up a small library for our guests. All baby equipment can be provided upon request (high chair, cot/travel bed). The bathroom has a washer, dryer and a changing table. We bring fresh breakfast bread rolls in the mornings for you. Rabbits, cat, dog and pigeons live on the farm. Our fallow deer preserve is in the castle park with occasional monitoring.

Outside there is a jungle gym with two slides. On the farm live rabbit, a cat, a dog and pigeon. Our game reserve with opportunities for animal watching is in the castle grounds. We have a very large collection of DVDs and games for every age, which of course you may borrow, so that there is no boredom on rainy days. Just light the chimney and unpack the board!

Sehr schönes Anwesen im Herzen von Sachsen

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu dritt auf der Rückreise aus Österreich und fanden hier ein sehr schön restauriertes Anwesen mit einer großzügigen Ferienwohnung. Das Passieren des Tores erinnerte uns an eine Fernsehserie mit Lord Brett Sinclair aus der TV-Serie "DIE ZWEI".

Ein herrschaftliches Domizil, gut 25 KM von Leipzig entfernt mit einer sehr freundlichen Gastgeberfamilie. Kanu, Kajak oder Ruderboot stehen zur Verfügung um den Haussee zu erkunden. Es gibt zahlreiche Ausflugsziele in der Umgebung. Eine klare Empfehlung.

exzellent

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schöne, große, liebevoll eingerichtete Ferienwohnung direkt im Schloss. Ausgestattet ist sie zum Teil mit historischen Einrichtungsgegenständen. Die Wohnhalle verfügt über einen Kamin und wie die meisten anderen Räume über eine Bodenheizung. Die Wohnung ist perfekt mit allem notwendigen Zubehör ausgestattet. Ein separater Gartensitzplatz steht ebenso zur Verfügung wie Ruder- und Paddelboot am See, der wie ein Park zum Grundstück gehört.

Ein frischer Blumenstrauß auf dem Tisch sowie ein flackerndes Kaminfeuer zu unserem Empfang hat uns besonders begeistert. Die Begrüßung durch Familie von Carlowitz und dem Verwalter Herrn Richter war sehr herzlich und angenehm.

Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und können dieses Quartier zu 100% weiterempfehlen.

Urlaub im Schloss - wunderbar

  • 5 of 5

Eine tolle Wohnung - genau richtig, wenn man etwas besonderes sucht. Herrschaftliches Ambiente, gemütlich auch bei eher unterkühlten Ostern durch den herrlichen großen Kamin. Die Zimmer entsprachen den durch die Fotos schon hochgesteckten Erwartungen. Schade, dass wir auf Grund der Witterung das große Außengelände mit Kinderspielgelegenheiten, Wald und See nicht mehr nutzen konnten.

Sehr geehrte Familie von Carlowitz,

wir haben eine wunderbare Zeit bei Ihnen verleben dürfen und uns super wohl gefühlt. Es hat einfach alles gepasst, Sie als Gastgeber, Herr Richter als “Guts-Opa“, Tessa & Georgie, das Traktor- und Rasenmäherfahren, die Seilbahn, die Apfel-, Birnen- u. Kartoffelernte, das super Wetter und natürlich unsere tolle Ferienwohnungen. Vielen Dank für alles! Steffie, Stefan, August & Otto

Location

Holiday in a castle between Leipzig and Dresden.

Rittergut Heyda, located in the historical baroque ensemble with lake view and 7 hectares huge park. You can comfortably reach the following for day trips: Leipzig 40 km (zoo, amusement park Belantis, Neueseenland, Art museum, Gewandhaus-concert hall, Opera and much more), Dresden 90 km (with Zwinger palace, Semperoper-concert hall, Frauenkirche-church, Green Vault), Torgau (Lutherstadt Renaissance castle) and Meissen 70 km (Wineries, Albrechtsburg castle and Manufaktur). The nearby town Wurzen, birth place of the author Ringelnatz, has a wonderful conservative old town with cathedral precincts and castle. Meantime you can relax at our place in the greenery with boat riding, fishing (fishing license required) or bicycling tours in the surrounding Dahlener Heide. The nearby Eiscafe in the castle park of Dornreichenbach (3 km) with the adjoining zoo (Erdmännchen Gehege) is a very attractive tourist destination with lunch and exciting ice cream menu for families with children. Endless wimming opportunities. Outdoor pools and natural pools with beach are reachable within 10 minutes. Large indoor fun pools with sauna are found 30 minutes away (Saxony spa in Leipzig-Paunsdorf and Platsch in Oschatz). There are horse riding stables in the nearby villages. If anyone loves skating as a sport, there is an opportunity to practise this too on the bicycle trail Wurzen-Grimma along the Mulde and good cycling tour. Wermsdorfer forest and Dahlener Heide as well as the Jakobsweg, which go through our park give opportunity for extensive hikes. The 15 year-old daughter of the house, well trained with 4 little siblings, offers baby sitting service for parents with children.
