“Das Winterquartier” (the winter quarters) located in the Brandenburg village Dechtow is worth a trip at every season. The 1883 built barn of an old farm has been converted into a spacious holiday home and now includes two apartments – Alter Heuboden and remise – which can be booked individually or together.
The old substance of the building has been preserved as much as possible. The vaulted ceilings and beams have been made visible and give the house its rustic ambience. Wooden hatches being typical for an old barn are now used as interior shutters. The doors are reminiscent of the old barn doors and you also find a typical front door. The courtyard has been restored as well and shows the old pavement following the removal of the grown topsoil.
The fenced garden is like an outdoor living room with barbecue and smoker. In the old “Milchküche” a football table and table tennis are ready for a match!
