About the property

4 bedrooms & suite with wellness-bath, sleeps 10, lounge, garden, parking

After restoring our farmhouse in 2004 we can offer you upstairs 3 sleeping rooms furnished in typical country style, 2 bathrooms with shower, bathtub, WC and bidet for 6 persons and another small double bed room especially made for kids. Additionally we have a luxury suite for 2-3 persons including an own wellness-bathroom with interior design by Philipp Starck, including a sauna/sanarium for your recreation. At the entrance floor you will find the comfortable living room which offers a cosy atmosphere with chimney, satellite-TV, some English books and magazines. The equipment of the kitchen is perfectly stored with microwave, dishwasher, toaster etc. Outside the house you will find a romantic country-garden with a lot of typical flowers nearby the terrace. Shadowed by old trees you will find nice places outside to sit down into the grass or around the wooden table in the garden area. Enjoy the possibility of barbecue outside! And kids will be happy playing ping pong.

City tours: A day trip, not too far away, takes you to the city of Ulm. The Ulmer Muenster has the tallest steeple on Earth. Shopping and strolling along the old Fisherman’s Quarter along the Danube River is also quite an experience. If you head east you will come to the beautiful and must see city of Munich, the capital of Bavaria, also formerly known as the “hidden capital” of Germany. Visiting the Hofbraeuhaus or Beergardens you will find the typical bavarian lifestyle. If you drive to the north, on the scenic road known as the “Romantic Road”, you will pass old medieval towns such as Dinkelsbühl and Rothenburg ob der Tauber (known for the Käthe Wohlfahrt year round Christmas store) and up to Wuerzburg. Going west you will reach Stuttgart, the automobile city with Mercedes and Porsche, lovely situated inbetween forests and wineyards, where you can taste the 'Viertele' at traditional 'Besenwirtschaften'.

Scenic landscapes and points of interests: If you drive toward the south, you reach the foot of the Alps, and the famous town of Oberstdorf. This town is known for its beautiful ornamental wooden houses and, of course, the ski jumping, from local to world class and even Olympic competition. Take the cable car up to the Nebelhorn and what a view you will have! Not far away is the castle well known, even in the United States, named Neu Schwanstein. A trip to this point of interest may also be combined with two other well known places, the Schloss Linderhof and the beautiful baroque church, the Wieskirche. Nearby is also the Abbey, Ettal.

Another daytrip that depends upon good weather would be to the Lake Constance to visit the city of Lindau but also the island of Mainau, with its beautiful blooming flowers.

Cultural trips: If you are interested in churches, we recommend the late baroque style Abbey Neresheim by the architect Balthasar Neumann. Neresheim may be combined with the medieval town of Nördlingen, which to this day still has an intact wall surrounding the entire town. A night watcher still lives at the very top of one of the two towers in the church St. Daniel. On your way back to the house you will see castles. Or take a relaxing day in the vicinity of the house, known as the Schwaben Baroque Area:

You can visit many of the small towns in the region such as Günzburg, Krumbach, Memmingen, and Ottobeuren. These towns will give you an impression of the architecture and culture of this part of Southern Germany.

Great locations to explore the area

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay in your country home during our "Bavarian Adventure". We found it to be a great location and a welcoming home with everything we could need.

What a wonderful time we had! Using the house as a base, we were able to explore the area. Castles, lakes, mountains and museums were all fun to see.

Everything in the house seemed to run very well and was very clean.

Great location for day trips into Ulm and Munich

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely farmhouse. One day we took the train into Munich for Oktoberfest and on another day we explored beautiful Ulm. The countryside around Gunzberg is beautiful and good restaurants were an easy drive away. We would definitely recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for your recommendation. I'm happy that you've enjoyed my two insider tipps for your very short time at us. To go by train to the Oktoberfest is perfect! Ulm has on the one hand a very old center, on the other hand a modern one closeby. This city is perfect for to study german urban development during the last decades.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a large family reunion and it was just perfect. Everything was as described. The house is in a perfect condition, everything is well maintained and very modern. But still the house has kept its original character. The landlords were wonderful and very helpful. The distance to Legoland is just perfect. We had a wonderful stay and can highly recommend this property. Only one little thing: there's no wifi. But didn't matter - we were on vacation. Thanks for giving us the possibility to stay at your wonderful location.

Owner's Response: What a big family with 16 persons in all! I'm happy to hear that all of you felt fine in our home. For more than 10 adults we can offer apartments up to 4 nearby if wanted. In our big lounge which is located in the old former stable you will find a wonderful place for your come-together to dine, to relax, to play. Please ask us for individual arrangements. You also will be welcome again with a more increased family. And be sure: once a time you will be able to surf by wifi. As well as watching TV now is possible on a big flat screen since the fantastic FIFA-World Cup by our German Team. WE also do our very best!

Wonderful family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The house was clean and well-maintained, and the surrounding gardens and front porch terrace were beautiful. The kitchen was huge and well-equipped for our group of 5. The bedrooms were large and the beds were very comfortable.

The little town where the house is located is charming. We enjoyed our walks and bike rides in town. The house also was a perfect base for exploring Bavaria by car or train. The closest train station is Gunzburg, which is about a 15 min. drive from the house. Grocery store and restaurants were about a 5-10 min. drive from the house.

We enjoyed a trip to Ulm, and the Ulmsberg Abbey restaurant and beer garden, both of which were recommended by Heike, our host.

We would recommend this house for anybody who wants a quiet, peaceful place for a vacation, or for those who want a comfortable home base for Bavarian day-trips.

Owner's Response: I'm happy that you enjoyed my recommendations for dining at the Abbey Ursberg closeby, which offers typical bavarian meals and homemade beer, as well as the daytrip to Ulm with its fishermen's quater along the river Danube and the highest church tower of the world. Ulm is about 40 minutes away from us and loved by everybody who visited this charming city. The bavarian capital Munich is best to do by train from Gunzburg. Traveling by this way you will be in the middle of the city, close to all the highlights, the beer gardens and all the exclusive boutiques for shopping. With all the possibilities for exploring Bavaria from our house as a well situated home base please don't miss to take a break in our spacious house and especially in our lovely garden.

Charming Home Perfect 4 Large Group With Children

  • 5 of 5

Travelling to Germany from Canada for our son's September 2012 wedding, our large family group of 7 adults, 6 children and 1 infant enjoyed a wonderful post-wedding week before returning home, at this lovely and charming farm house in Unterrohr. It was once a working farm, now part of a small town. We found the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, and common areas more than ample space for us to enjoy comfortably. The kitchen was well appointed with all tools required, and with grocery stores in a town a short drive away we were able to cook and eat together. Somehow we miscalculated, and could have used one more single (child) bed, but as all the adult rooms had king-size beds, and one had a couch we converted to a bed, it worked out fine, with the playpen our hosts provided, for the baby to sleep in. The outside garden area was lovely, and a great place for the kids to run and play. Laundry facilities were very handy and appreciated! The space and amenities really worked well for us, and we just loved the character and feeling of the house.

The location was also ideal for a family exploration of the area. During our short stay we were able to take in Neuschwanstein Castle (this was a bit of a long day with wee little ones, but would be very do-able with older children), LegoLand Deutschland (just a few kilometers away), Ulm (shopping, market and cathedral), and (our daughter's personal favourite) the town of Nördlingen, one of the only remaining walled medieval towns in Germany. In short, it was perfect for us - lots to do and see in the area, a great place to come back to in the evening to be able to get some down time, the freedom to prepare and serve meals as needed, and space to let the kids be kids.

The pricing is at the discretion of the hosts, and we were unsure of how it was arrived at, arranging things from half a world away, but the overall cost was less than hotels would have been for such a large group.

And our hostess was second to none. Our arrival time was much later in the evening than we had anticipated, because driving takes such a long time when you are not familiar with your location/destination, and it gets dark out. Even though she had to work the next day, she graciously met us. She spoke excellent English (for which we were most thankful!), checked in with us several times during our stay to make sure we were doing well, and exhibited genuine friendship.

Thank-you for sharing your lovely home!

Fantastic farmhouse in Bavaria

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely farmhouse for 2 weeks in August 2012 as a family of 2 parents and 4 young children from the UK joined by relatives from France. We rented the suite which was a great addition and gave our relatives some privacy.The house is very spacious and very well decorated, and well furnished. Everything is there and in perfect working order. It was very hot during our stay but still relatively cool in the house, which made it very pleasant when we wanted to escape from the sun! The children enjoyed playing outside on the small bikes and we used the bicycles for many bike rides around the village. It is a very safe environment for young children and very quiet. The house is well located for sightseeing in Bavaria, we explored the region easily, visiting Ulm, Augsburg, Lindau, the magnificent castle of Neuschwanstein and Munich which is a very easy train journey from Gunzburg, 15 min away. Gunzburg has all the required amenities and is a pleasant small town with supermarkets and restaurants. There are also many small lakes nearby which are great for swimming in hot weather. All in all we had an extremely enjoyable stay in this house and would recommend it to anyone seeking to explore Bavaria from the comfort of a lovely holiday house.

The area we are situated is called „Allgäu“ and seems to be very rural. Even so you can reach a lot of well known highlights on the highways within one hour from us.

For your recreation you will found at front door a lot of trails for walking and biking through the national park areas surrounding us. Geological interested people have to visit the Swabian Jura with all their caves. Wellness-interested people will like to visit the origin of „Kneipp“. Not only kids like to see the very new interactive museum of „World of Steiff“ with the teddies or the 'Legoland' park area. The city of Ulm presents you the worldwide highest church-tower and Augsburg is well known as a medieval city with the famous 'Fuggertown'. But also Munich and Stuttgart are not too far away for a daytrip just as the Lake Constance with the isle-town Lindau. For hiking we recommend the mountains around Oberstdorf, for sightseeing the famous castle Newswanstein, for tasting the Bavarian culture and monastery Andechs

Other Activities: Nordic walking courses
