Buchenblatt (Beech leaf) is an stylish Alpine chalet, with two levels. Built by hand, made of red maple and pine and perched on a hill it offers wonderful panoramic views of mountains and trees. It is only a few yards away from the forest pathway.
Buchenblatt has two floors, when you book our home you will have access to the ENTIRE place. There is an entrance on the first floor and one on the ground floor. This is very useful for those who do not want to use the stairs. On the first floor there is a large bedroom with a 200cmx200cm wide Emperor bed, a bathroom, the kitchen, dining area and living room. You can also access the balcony from this level, where you will enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the forests. We have a barbecue outside.
On the ground floor, you will find a bathroom with a shower and washing machine. There are also two bedrooms, one is a Superking size and the other is a very large family room with four single beds. We also offer two travelling baby cots free of charge.
On very sunny days you can sit on the balcony or simply use the terrace downstairs which is nicely secluded and cool. We have a large dining table and comfortable chairs for you to relax alfresco! We also have a barbecue for your use.

A keen traveller with an over developed taste for interior decoration, I try to get away as often as possible. Speak a couple of languages and am always trying to learn a new one. I have rented my properties across the world for a few years now and have a methodical and practical approach to it; it works!
I have listed three of my most loved properties: one is at the higher end of architectural accomplishment in Cheltenham, Buchenblatt (Beech leaf) is a stylish Alpine retreat for 8 people at the foot of the forest in Germany. In 2014, we added to our listings our Cotswold Lake Lodge "The Rocklight", which offers a stylish retreat by the water.
The most important link between them all is that they offer something truly special that you will not find in hotels; amazing comfort and true character! I hope you will love them too! It is important for guests to realise that they are staying in our homes and NOT in a hotel.
We love hosting and giving guests memorable, unique experiences they can not have by staying in hotels. Personal touches, great art and interesting stories fill our homes and make them very special places. We travel a lot due to work and family commitments, mainly in Europe. It is our belief that our homes are sadder places when they are unoccupied and we like knowing that someone is enjoying and looking after them in our absence. That's, in a nutshell, what drives us to host; we look forward to welcoming you!
