Beautiful mansion needing renovation

  • 2 of 5

We had booked the main building for one week. It is a beautiful very large building in a nice setting. However the building is in need of renovation, especially the bathrooms. Unfortunately we encountered quite a number of mice in the kitchen, hallway and one bedroom and decided to leave early due to that.

There was another family at the same time in the side building who seemed to be happy with that. If you are contemplating renting, the side building might actually be the better choice.

Magnificent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Flygel in the summer of 2013 (I was unable to fill in the correct dates as my review comes a bit late) and I can seriously recommend it. The peninsula is a great place to explore: extremely quiet, many nice bays and beaches. We did a lot of cycling here which is absolutely recommendable. The harbour at the tip has a small restaurant which is fine for a quick meal. The Flygel house is big enough for the six we were with and it lies in a wonderful quiet, green area, next to the historic big manor house. Clean, nicely decorated - recommendable.

Wunderschön und ruhig gelegen. Stilvoll. Sehr nette Vermieter und Verwalter. Toll für Familien mit Kindern. Wassergrundstück; der See ist aber so weit vom Garten entfernt, dass man eine gute Kontrolle haben kann, wo die Kinder sind & spielen. Tolle Sonnenuntergänge über dem Wasser. Gelegentlich Stallgeruch – man wohnt auf dem Land...

Der Flygel hat ein volles Badezimmer in der oberen Etage und unten (EG) eine separate Toilette; die 2. Dusche ist im Vorraum der Sauna (auch EG). Unten 1 Doppelschlafzimmer, oben 2 Einzelschlafzimmer und 2 Doppelschlafzimmer. Oben schöne, große, sehr helle Lounge (2. Wohnzimmer) zwischen den einzelnen Schlafzimmern.
