From our (early) arrival until our departure, we loved staying here. The build spec is of the highest standard and the decor within the house is tasteful, spotlessly clean, very sturdy and functional. Seriously, the furnishings, fixtures and fittings are better than ours at home!
Although Europe on the whole has been going through a particularly dry few months, the plants in the garden were still looking good and in bloom. The pool was a welcome relief after our days out in the hot sun and we were made to feel welcome to use it whenever we wanted, even if Sybille and Karl were using it, so we used it when we wanted to!
The neighbourhood felt very safe and the local people were very friendly and helpful. We have very little German and most of them have a similar amount of English, but somehow we got by!
Weinbohla is a small, friendly town with the amenities that you need. We didn’t go to the lido (mainly because of the pool at the house!) but it looked very inviting! Sybille recommended the keulscher-hof restaurant by the church in town, so we walked there (10-15 minutes) and had a delicious meal with friendly service too.
Weinbohla is a short drive to Meissen which is definitely worth a visit for at least a day.
The surrounding area has beautiful countryside and is a refreshing break from the hustle and bustle of cities.
We loved every minute and when we visit the region again, we will stay here.
