This old four-sided farm in the Bavarian Forest has been family-owned for seven generations. Now the ensemble of buildings dating back 1840, including a farmhouse, stable, outbuildings and a heritage listed bakery, has been restored and adapted to the needs of the youngest generation. Old elements of the buildings were preserved where possible, while their rural style was combined with sleek, modern architecture. In the main farmhouse, two guest apartments have been created in addition to the owners’ own apartment, their parents’ apartment, and the farm’s office. A stairwell between the farmhouse and stable interconnects these various levels and reveals that the farm has very much arrived in the modern era. The two 40 square meter guest apartments each consist of one room divided into different areas by a centrally positioned timber compartment (in which you will find the bathroom). The style is pure and minimalistic, creating a modern ambiance while emphasizing the fabric of the old building. One of the apartments features a kitchen unit, the other one comes without and is rented out as a studio. Equipped with sleeping sofas, separable double beds as well as an extra bed, all your needs will be met: business travellers or short-term guests can choose the studio, for longer stays the apartment is ideal. Booked together both apartments can accommodate groups of up to 9 people.
