“PERFECT Black Forest apartment!”
Reviewed June 26, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I cannot recommend this apartment enough! Gengenbach itself is just an idyllic storybook town, and the apartment is within the walls of the old town just steps from the main square and with views of the quaint half timbered houses and an adorable church atop of vineyard-covered hills. The apartment is two levels and is HUGE! The kitchen was basic but well equipped, and the shower had surprisingly good water pressure. Our kids had a blast in the loft area where they slept, and loved the toys that were there for them to play with. The train station is so nice and close to town that it was really easy to explore the black forest without a car. What a gem!!

“Beautiful town and cosy apartment”
Reviewed June 11, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This apartment is right in the centre of the beautiful town of gengenbach . The apartment was clean and adequate for the 2 of us.
One problem was the lack of curtains on the bedroom window in summer which woke you up at 5.30-am. They just need to fix this. Also if you are a light sleeper like me the bells in the church go off every 15 minutes all night!,, it takes getting used to. So apart from these problems the stay was wonderful.
The host is very friendly and helpful. We wanted information on walks from the information centre and I didn't find them helpful for English speakers so I would suggest more local information in English from the host as well.

Thanks a lot for your review. Just for the next time, there are wooden blinds outside, which can be closed during night.
Have a safe trip home.

“This apartment was the highlight of our Black Forest holiday!”

We are a family of four, our kids are aged 10 &13. This apartment was a beautiful surprise for us as I don't think the photos show how lovely it really is. Firstly, the location is incredible, tucked just inside the town gate of the prettiest village in The Black Forest. You can almost reach out the window and touch the clock tower! You can amble around the old town or just sit at the window and watch the village go about its day. Secondly, the apartment itself was perfect for us. Very spacious living and kitchen area with a lovely spiral staircase up to a kid's escape (lounge with television and games) and a second bedroom. Everything is spotless and well equipped. Daniela was very welcoming and helpful in her introduction. I would strongly urge friends and family to rent this apartment, especially if they have kids with them. Thank you Daniela, we really enjoyed our stay.
