About the property

Röder's mill

The bright and spacious Maisonette-style apartment (167 qm) is located in a romantic old mill, which is already mentioned 777 A.D. Furnished tastefully and creatively in country-style, the apartment offers many possibilities for bigger and smaller groups to engage in different activities. The landlady will be happy to show the old (flour) and the new (electricity) milling technology to the interested. The close river allows swimming and canoeing. Röder´s mill is not far away from the Autobahn and is thus an ideal place for small groups or families who want to meet in the middle of Germany.

Fresh and healthy: In Diebach and its surrounding towns, you can buy fresh and healthy foods directly from the farmer. Family-owned vineyards offer their excellent wines and spirits. Bakers, butcher and small grocery shops are in Diebach, bigger shopping centres etc. a short 4 kms away. Cosy little restaurants serve you tasty and low-priced typical Franconian meals. Also gourmets can enjoy choice dishes

here in wonderful restaurants within old and mysterious buildings.

Activities: Indoor- and outdoor swimming pools as well as a beach-volleyball court are at close distance (4 km). Bike and

boat rentals are possible, you may go on your own boat tour

on the Saale river or participate in guided canoeing tours. Barbecueing is also possible at the Saale river banks. The apartment offers cosy corners for children and a number of board games and videos.

Other interesting facts: A nearby farm with horses, peacocks and many other animals in Diebach organizes carriage rides and more. Historic landmarks, castle ruins, traditional architecture and a local museum with a special exhibition (bread & wine) offer a cultural insight. Don´t miss the many opportunities to go wine-tasting and to participate in tours through the traditional Franconian wine-cellars and vineyards and to enjoy the many little festivals in the area.

Riverfront apartment with outdoor barbeque

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this spacious and beautiful apartment with my wife and daughter from June 1-3, 2010. We had 4 bedrooms, a large kitchen, an even larger living room and the river Saal all to ourselves, and the effect was very soothing. The apartment is in Diebach, a quiet village 50 Kms from Wurzburg well connected by train. It has a 360 degree view of the river and the Franconian countryside with its hills and meadows. The house generates its own electricity by diverting the water of the river through a turbine. I spent a lot of time watching the water swirl through the blade and come out in rich white foam. The sound of the water could be heard from the apartment above creating a wonderful ambience. There's a small island in front of the house and one can go for a swim in the river or simply sit and enjoy the peace. For the gastronomically inclined, there's also a barbeque by the riverside, which I am told by Christa is a favourite with guests.

There are many places to see in and around Diebach, but since we were using public transport, we stuck to the larger cities, Wurzburg and Nurnberg. The Residence at Wurzburg, a UNESCO World Heritage site, has beautiful frescoes painted by the Venetian painter Tiepolo, intricate staccato work by Antonio Bossi and exquisite mirror works and paintings. The St. Mary Church, St. Kilian Cathedral and the market place are some other places to visit. In Nurnberg, you can visit the Kaiserburg Imperial Castle, Docu Centrum (Nazi documentation centre), the zoo and the old town.

We enjoyed our 3 day stay at the apartment and given a choice would have liked to spend a couple of days more to explore the Franconian region. Christa, our host, a graphic designer by profession, was extremely warm and courteous. She provided us plenty of food and vegetables and advised us on the places to visit. She stays in the adjacent house and was always available when we needed her. For those seeking peace, tranquility and a scenic and romantic place to spend some quality time, this apartment is the place to be.

(be)rauschender Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus, die Insel, der Hof, die Vermieterin, die Atmosphäre......

....ein Traum!!!

Wir konnten bei der Buchung unseres Zimmers kaum glauben, wie schön die Zimmer und die Außenanlage war. Dort angekommen, wurden wir freundlich, aber unaufdringlich in Empfang genommen. Im und um das Haus herum gab es sooo viel zu entdecken! Wir reisten mit mehreren Kindern an, welche ebenso fasziniert vom Flair des Hauses waren, wie wir.

Alles war so, wie beschrieben. Es war sehr sauber und wirklich geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Der Kontakt zur Vermieterin war während des gesamten Aufenthalts toll. Sie unterstützte uns bei der Freizeitplanung und plauschte mit uns, wenn sie merkte, dass wir das wollen.

Schade nur, dass das Wetter nicht so richtig wollte - Der kleine Balkon vom "Schwanennest" hat uns in den Abendstunden leider vergeblich gelockt.

Das Objekt lässt sich uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.

Herrliche Familienname im fränkischen Idyll!

  • 5 of 5

Schon auf dem Weg zu der Mühle durch grüne Wiesen, Weinberge und sanfte Hügel beginnt die Entspannung. Die Biberburg dann war der perfekte Ort für ein paar erholsame, ruhige Tage für unsere Familie. Perfekt ausgestattete, gemütliche und geräumige Zimmer, bequeme Betten, schöne große Gemeinschaftsräume und sehr nette, unkomplizierte Vermieter. Wir wollen gern wiederkommen!!

klappern tut sie nicht...

  • 5 of 5

... aber sogar Strom erzeugen und das Rauschen des Flusses direkt vor dem Fenster bzw. der Sauna (!!!) ist einfach Klasse. Wir waren zum zweiten Mal dort, um in größerer Gruppe eine Tagung vorzubereiten und Dinge zu besprechen. Sehr nette, umkomplizierte Vermieterin, riesiger Tisch, gemütlicher Kamin und Sofas, nette Zimmer, Sauna zum Relaxen, schöne Laufstrecke ins Tal, ein paar Minuten nach Hammelburg, ... Wir werden sicher versuchen, auch diesen Teil unseres Treffens fest zu etablieren! Vielen Dank!

Wunderschönes Ambiente

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderschönes Haus für einen tollen Grossfamilien-Urlaub. Toll gelegen direkt an bzw. über der Fränkischen Saale wohnt man über 3 Stockwerke in einem sehr geschmackvoll renovierten Fachwerkhaus, aussergewöhnlich angenehme und freundliche Vermieter machen das ganze zum echten Erlebnis, wir kommen ganz sicher nächstes Jahr wieder nach Diebach.

Nochmals herzlichen Dank und viele Grüsse

Perfekt für ein Familienwochenende

  • 5 of 5

Die sehr liebvoll eingerichtete Rödermühle bietet alles was man für ein gemeinsames Familienwochenende mit 15 Personen benötigt. Man kommt an und fühlt sich gleich sehr wohl. Ein Kaminfeuer macht bei nicht so gutem Wetter eine kuschlige Wärme und die Sauna bietet Entspannung. Man kann einfach nur den Tag gemeinsam in der Mühle verbringen oder man geht in der herrlichen Natur spazieren. Der Forellenhof in Laufweite ist ein sehr zu empfehlendes Ausflugsziel. Nicht einmal das schlechte Wetter konnte einen Teil der Familienmitglieder vom Baden in der Saale abhalten. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder. Vielen Dank an die Vermieterin.

The village of Diebach is located close to the town of Hammelburg (lower Franconia´s oldest vinyards) in the picturesque valley of the Saale River – a peaceful and relaxing area. Families can go on hiking tours in the open nature. While small children can play at the shallow shores of the river, the older may take a swim in the deeper areas of the water. Shady peninsulas invite you to rest and go on a picnic there. You can go on day-trips to Rothenburg o.d. Tauber, Würzburg, Bamberg or Fulda.

Other Activities: archery

Golf: 18-hole golf course in Bad Kissingen (25 kms away). This

famous old spa - where kings and emperors have formerly been on health cures - offers a luxurious surrounding and a casino. There are cultural activities as well, like the 'Kissinger Sommer' or 'Winterzauber' annual highbrow music festivals.
