This farmhouse dating back to 1935 is located close to the French border at the edge of a small village between the Palatinate Forest and the Northern Vosges. Both the former homestead and barn have been converted into two apartments. The motto for the renovation has been to combine and harmonize old and new, to maintain the substance and to supplement it with the matching design. Great importance has been placed on sustainability using natural materials such as wood flooring, linoleum and lime plaster.
The “Wohnhaus” (homestead), which can accommodate up to eight people on three floors, features three bedrooms (one of them under the gable overlooking the Wegelnburg). The “Scheune” (barn) for up to four people offers open living on three floors and has a sleeping gallery. Both apartments have well-equipped kitchens and large dining tables for social gatherings. Children are welcome guests – children´s beds, high chairs and games are available as well as a trampoline and a sandbox in the garden.
