The area is very beautiful, peaceful and full of nature (including many ticks, not so good for dog owners). The house us lovely, perfect for a small family, and the garden is secure which is great if you are taking your four legged friend with you! There are lots of interesting walks, and much history to explore. We had a lovely time - thank you Thomas!
The host was really friendly & helpful and the accommodation was equipped with everything you'd need.
There is a little cafe next door, a pub/restaurant on the main road and a really nice restaurant on the river.
We took our bikes and cycled along the Havel nearly every day.
Berlin is easily accessible on the super cheap rail network from Rathenow.
