A rural idyll behind the dike: For more than 20 years the old rectory dating to 1865 was empty and it had fallen into disrepair, now it shines a sunny yellow and invites guests to enjoy relaxing holidays. The lovingly renovated building with designs from the late Biedermeier era features three apartments of different sizes: The apartments “pond” for 2 people and “garden” for 4 people on the ground floor, and the apartment “Elbe river” under the historic roof with space for 7 people. The original state of the historic building has been restored as far as possible using traditional craft techniques and materials. Earth and lime plaster walls, historic wooden floors, doors, stoves and box-style windows combine with an the elegant country decor and a reserved colour palette to create a relaxed, homely atmosphere. And the location of the house, surrounded by a picturesque park and directly behind the dike of the river Elbe, will put stressed city dwellers into recovery mode very quickly.
