“I miss the view from the back patio”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Just back after a 2 week stay at the beautiful ALB-ferien. George and Madeline made us feel really at home, showed us around, answered any questions we had. The house is beautiful, well built and cozy. The view from the back patio is amazing over-looking fields where horses were grazing and a nearby forest. The bed rooms were really comfortable, and spacious. Bathroom was fantastic.

Fantastic kitchen, with a decent size fridge freezer, top of the range dishwasher, electric hob and oven. Also has a washing machine down stairs in the basement.

House has both triple glazing, roll down external shutters as well as underfloor heating throughout. Nice patio at the back which was great to have a relaxing beer or a glass of wine! (Well stocked Treff 3000 (I think an edeka subsidiary) less than 5 mins walk)

Village also has a pizzeria/bar, a delicious bakery, bank and ATM also

We used the house both as a base to do nearby walks and trips as well as longer distance to Stuttgart and beyond.

If I could award this six stars I would :)

“Perfect setting”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The welcome from Georg and Madeliene couldn't have been warmer. They showed us around the house and how to use everything, gave us tips on where to eat and what was available in the village. The house is perfect, and everything you could need is available here. Located in a very quiet rural village but with all the amenities. The owners are available if you have any questions and came to say farewell upon our departure. The house is within 2 hours easy drive of all the major sites of the region. Would stay here again.

“lovely home in beautiful part of Germany”
Reviewed 18 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

this is a lovely, bright, modern and well appointed home, situated overlooking a green area on the outskirts of a picturesque old village in the Schwabian Alps area. The owner, Dorothee and her family were extremely welcoming and obliging. The house is spotless and there is a lovely outdoor patio garden. There is plenty to see and do in the area including lovely old towns such as Bad Alpirsbach and the Northern Black Forest. It is a great area for walking and cycling with a cycle path right beside the house. Close to supermarket and good takeaway pizzeria. We also made a day trip to Europa Park from the house which was very doable and kids really enjoyed.
