About the property

Spacious apartment (sleeps 4-5) with big terrace and lovely park-like garden

The 90 sq m apartment in an old half-timbered house is sunny and spacious. Wooden floors, the beautiful timber-structured walls and elegant antiques bring style and atmosphere. The kitchen is very well equipped, with a table and morning sun for breakfast. The three rooms (bedrooms and lounge/ dining) are facing south, elegantly furnished and have a warm feel to them. A 60 sq m terrace and sundeck overlooks the lovely garden and provides enough space and privacy for al fresco dining in these warm summer nights. You can also have a barbecue in the garden or play table tennis in our elegant cellar room. We also have two bicycles to lend to guests.

Idyllic Weekend Away From The Hustle and Bustle

  • 5 of 5

We drove just a couple of hours to spend a couple of nights in this paradise in the country. After arriving late on a Friday we were anxious to see our surroundings on Saturday morning and the area around Villa Salem did not disappoint. The house itself is a work of art and the apartment was much larger than we expected. The apartment was elegantly decorated and the yard and gardens are impeccably kept. Our children (7 and 3) had an wonderful time playing in the yard, jumping on the trampoline and getting to know the resident children. We all enjoyed a lovely long walk on Saturday visiting pigs, horses, cats and dogs on the way to Schloss Salem. There is a great Spielplatz there for the children and the buildings and grounds were lovely. Proximity to fun, family-oriented activities like Affenberg the Bodensee make this a truly ideal family vacation locale. We will surely visit again.

Great value!

  • 5 of 5

A great location to retreat after a long day of traveling to visit the many historical sites in the region. The apartment was neat, clean, roomy, quiet and had all the ammenities to make our trip very enjoyable. The owner was very helpful with recommending points of interest, and provided a "library" of brochures and maps to make our planning even easier.

We would definitely return here.

sehr netter Aufenthalt

Ideal für Kinder. Ich denke im Sommer wird es noch schöner sein. Unsere Tochter durfte sogar in den 3 Tagen die Häschen füttern. Toll.

Wir kommen wieder.

Stilvolle, geräumige Wohnung mit tollem Garten

  • 4 of 5

Sehr freundlicher Empfang durch die Vermieter; stilvoll restaurierte, große Wohnung mit Blumenstrauß zum Empfang; toller Garten, der für kleinere Kinder zum Spielen einlädt und sonst einfach Platz bietet, um die Seele baumeln zu lassen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gut erreichbar, Bäcker und Metzger um die Ecke. Ein toller Ort, um die vielen Möglichkeuten der Bodenseeregion zu genießen!
