Dear Carla, We enjoyed staying at your apartment in Kirchzarten. Thank you for all your advice and recommendations. We used all of your suggestions. We found the location and size of the community to be perfect. It was great to walk everywhere or hop on a train. We were able to use the train pass to go to Tittisee. It was great to sit back and watch the scenery and not worry about the driving. We rented bicycles across the street one day. We had an pleasant ride of about 45 km around the town that someone in the tourist information suggested. It was a highlight of our trip. The patio and garden was a favorite. We would sit around the table in the morning and evening. Being able to wash our clothes was a crucial plus to our stay. I hope that we handled the trash OK. We tried to follow the instructions, but I am afraid we are not as mindful of our recycling in our country. Since it was different we may have not taken care of everything correctly. Please forgive. As you said on Wednesday workmen arrived to work on the parking area. They were still working when we left. Thank you again, Carol and Jim

A beautiful property in an excellent location. We enjoyed the beautiful patio and the ability to walk to town for resturants/train/post office/bike rental/ everything. My only hold back from rating an excellent would be only one bathroom. Otherwise the owner really accomodated us superbly. All equipment such as washer/dryer/ kitchen dishwasher, toaster, etc. worked perfectly. The piano was a nice touch. This property has excellent access to outdoor recreation such as bicycling, walking,hiking,skiing. And the town size is perfect. So nice not to be in the big city of Freiburg. I'd recommend taking the free railroad pass to anywhere in the area. We went to Titisee - which is a tourist trap and not good for hiking as is Kirchzarden. So just take the train up and back.. The tourist office in town is excellent.
