The hosts were very welcoming on a hot day and then the surprise of a beautiful cottage overlooking the garden. Very tranquil and peaceful, especially when walking in the private wood. A good place to stay to visit the Panorama route.

The hosts, the place is just wow. The service rendered at this establishment is the best. Our stay was made memorable. The cottages have a homely feel, are spacious and very clean. Walli and Rainer made sure to share their knowledge of the place and give us advice on places to visit. I will surely not hesitate to recommend them...

Lovely, spacious honeymoon cottage. Well equipped. The property is beautifully maintained with a stunning, short walk through the indigenous forest and lovely views over a small dam. The air is fresh and one feels very safe.

We stayed one night after the Panorama Route trip. We had a two bedroom chalet, which is cozy and clean with a full kitchen. The garden is neat and beautiful. We found it is of great value for money: A place so beautiful but the price is so low. PS: the cherry tomato in the garden is delicious!
