The Büretenhof is situated in one of the most beautiful high valleys in the southern Black Forest. This traditional Black Forest building – a three-storey farmhouse with both a residential space and a farmwork section, all under a traditional, low-drawn shingle roof – has been converted into a 386 square meter holiday home with room for 16 – 20 people. There are two living units, “Die Stube” and “Die Scheune”, which can be rented separately or together, and each unit boasts four bedrooms. The centrepiece of Die Stube is the original farmhouse parlor, while the communal centre of Die Scheune is the 5 meter high barn area with its own comfy lounge space up in a loft. The Büretenhof’s special charm is ensured by the wonderful contrast between old and new: gnarled wooden walls, creaky timber floorboards, an old tiled stove with an oven bench, and an historic stove, are combined with smooth, light wood, polished concrete floors, a modern fireplace, and a filigree steel staircase.
What to do
The place is an ideal starting point for hikers, bikers and winter sports enthusiasts. You can ski directly from the house to the lift and back. There is also an outdoor swimming pool in Todtnauberg and the Todtnauer waterfall (the highest, natural waterfall in Germany). Go hiking on the Feldberg, or check out the Steinwasenpark, the Bergschau Schauinsland museum, the Schniederlihof farmhouse, the Radon Revitalbad Menzenschwand spa, or the bathing paradise of the Black Forest Titisee. You can also go on excursions to Freiburg in Germany, Mulhouse and Strasbourg in France, or Basel and Zurich in Switzerland.
Why we like this house
The farm has retained its original character, but has very much arrived in the present thanks to its modern additions. Old and new complement each other perfectly.
This house is great for
Big families and groups.
