Comfortable two bedroom apartment with great views of the Hoherodskopf. It comfortably fits a family of four and is located in Schotten, the gateway to the Vogelsberg Mountains. Enjoy hiking, winter sports and great foods just one hour away from FFM

The space

Lovely retreat, centrally located but quiet 5 minutes away from the center of Schotten. The apartment itself occupies the top floors of a two family house. It is tastefully decorated, airy and offers lots of light. It sleeps two in the master bedroom and an additional two on the top floor, which offers tent-like slated ceilings and, on clear nights, views into the stars directly out of your bed.

Enjoy great views right into nature and onto the Hoherodskopf - thousands of years ago the biggest volcano in Europe - above the roofs of Schotten.

The Vogelsberg mountains are a paradise for nature lovers and those who want to stay active on their days off. Enjoy mountain biking, winter sports, biking, golf, hiking, and swimming in the Niddastausee - all within a 15 minutes drive from the apartment. The area is also renowned for its world-class gliding. Glider flights can be arranged at the airport, also just 15 minutes away.

great place with a lot of vintage decorations and collection, the host have a very good taste,we have a very pleasant stay at Martini 's place, I especially like the old Bosch CD player with radio and the TV, the kitchen is full equipped and bath and shower is clean and very good decoded, the location is the best and very close to town, very quiet neighborhood, great choice to escape from the stress or chaos and very enjoy the life and nature.

Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und Zentral gelegen, groß und sehr angenehm. Für bis zu 4 Personen optimal. Sehr geräumig und alles war vorhanden (Handtücher, Bettwäsche, Wasserkocher, Staubsauger, Geschirr etc.) Wenn es klappt komme ich gerne noch ein Mal nach Schotten. :-) Alles Gute weiterhin!

Die Wohnung ist wunderschön, aus jedem Fenster mit einem tollen Blick in die Landschaft. Die Schlüsselübergabe ist unkompliziert und in der Wohnung ist eigentlich alles selbsterklärend. Und wenn man Spiele sucht oder ein Englischwörterbuch wird man in den Regalen auch fündig.

Die Kommunikation mit Martin und seiner Frau war sehr angenehm und herzlich, alle Anliegen wurden flott beantwortet. Die Wohnung ist wirklich sehr schön, sauber, sehr geräumig und strahlt auch wegen der Familienfotos und Bilder eine persönliche Atmosphäre aus. Das mochten wir. Die vermittelten Beschreibungen zur Wohnung treffen vollständig zu. Wir fanden das Preis/Leistungs Verhältnis sehr fair. Wir würden jederzeit gerne wiederkommen. Vielen Dank!

Successfully married for longer than I can remember, raised three fine boys (the coolest one has kindly agreed to set up this profile). I have problems with my "th" but that is about as German as I get. Also, I'm a retired doctor and spend a lot of time gardening and like to run. If I'm not doing any of that you can find me traveling the world with my soulmate who happens to be my wife.
