In addition to the central heating can be heated with 2 Swedish wood stoves, this creates a pleasant and cozy atmosphere. The house is built in 1750 and very special. It is small and cozy, there are no standards, unlike today, the walls are sometimes a little crooked, the stairs a bit steeper and a door to a great man has to bend slightly. But precisely this makes the charm. I had family, and parents with young children as a guest. so far all are actually got along.

Beautiful historic house in great setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovingly restored historic house in a walled village on top of a hill above the Neckar valley. Very romantic and charming. The house is pretty and well equipped and the beds comfy. But beware: the stairs are very steep and narrow and the village closes down early in the evening. Overall, a great place.

Alles gut!

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schönes, sauberes und gut eingerichtetes Haus in romatischer Lage. Die Eingangstreppe ist schwer zu besteigen. Ein Kellerraum für z. B. Fahrräder vorhanden, Kaminholz vorhanden.

Komplett ausgestattete Küche, nichts fehlt. Zwei Kaminöfen, neues Bad (Dusche). Das Haus liegt an der Haupteifahrstraße der Festung, Morgens und Abends relativ viel Verkehr, tagsüber sehr ruhig, eigenlich nur Touristen, nachts absolut still, bis auf die Kirchenglocken.

Ein schönes Gefühl, in so einer Festung wohnen zu dürfen. Sehr netter Vermieter, leider nur telefonisch kennengelernt. Sehr empfehlenswert!
