The historic half-timbered house with its idyllic apartment is located in Windeck-Langenberg, up in the hills of the natural landscape Sieg (west of Cologne/Bonn), in the recreational area of the 'Windecker Ländchen" with forests and grassland, and the nature park 'Bergisches Land' - a retreat where one can slow down and unwind in the magnificent countryside! (See specials under www.rotesfachwerkhaus.de)
It is situated at the edge of the village, in the immediate vicinity of the Natursteig Sieg & adventure trail 'Landlebenweg'. This enchanted apartment is decorated with a combination of antique and modern elements. Here you will find tranquillity & romanticism in front of the crackling fireplace, or you can relax in the adjacent cottage garden with pond.

Our family has been living in this idyllic house for five generations and its gorgeous property together with the stunning view into the Sieg valley inspired the idea to share this special place with nature-loving people/with those looking for and appreciate relaxation and a unique ambience. Yes, I am a creative romanticist with a sense of beauty / for what makes things special! Our former guests noticed that this place exerts a particular fascination. My home village Langenberg with its extensive fields brings back wonderful childhood memories: The many times I've watched my Grandpa, a gifted blacksmith, at work or when I sat behind him on his moped as we rode across the fields; when I sat on hay bales, breathing in the scent of summer, or when I helped with harvesting potatoes... Don't you agree that country life is wonderful - do you have similar memories?
