Equipment: I also use the house myself and for this reason I have chosen everything with love and furnished it completely. The kitchen has cups, plates, cutlery, dishes and bowls, pots, pans etc, but also many things and gadgets which make life more pleasant and sometimes easier. Of course, there are various glasses; you will find them in the living room cupboard next to the fireplace. Children are welcome; there is a step in the bathroom as well as a high chair, drawing utensils, games and children’s books in the living area. For allergic guests corresponding bedclothes are available. The house is heated with gas, wood can be used in the cast-iron fireplace. The Atelier has no heating, but it is warmer than the house (it cannot be used in winter). Electric power is ecological and supplied by the company Naturstrom. Two more notes: The doors are rather low!!! Mind your head. And: I have created many of the pictures in the house and the Atelier as I am also an artist (www.eva-zander.de). I would like my tenants to enjoy everything as much as I do and to handle things with care and affection.
Furniture and equipment in detail:
Kitchen: Dishwasher, cooker with oven and ceran cooktop, refrigerator. Coffee machine and various espresso makers as well as milk frother. There is a small multifunctional food processor plus the odd gadgets: grater, scales, mixer, cake pans, tin opener … there is hardly anything more you could want.
Big room: Dining table with 6 wicker chairs and 3 additional stools. Book shelves as separator to a sleeping area; all books are waiting to be read. The boards underneath the shelves hold towels and bedclosthes. Please make sure you bring along beach and bath towels. The bed is 120x200cm with shelves carrying pillows and blankets of different materials (down and spelt pillows, down and woollen blankets as well as light summer blankets). Next to the bed there is a shelf with games and toys and a lot of space for your things you bring along. There is a high chair for small children in the corner. Next to the large window there is a wardrobe for your clothes, also hiding a counter; next to it there is a TV set and a TV receiver. Two sofa beds (1,40m x 2,0m and 1,20m x 2,0m) with a small table in combination with a radio and a CD player make up a cosy corner. CDs are available for “gemuetlich“ evenings. In the cupboard next to the fireplace you will find glasses for every occasion in the upper part, the lower part contains table cloths and sheets. The oven could be used theoretically, but there is no dry wood at present. Near the oven there are two folding mattresses and can be used as chairs or beds.
Small room: There is a bed here of 160×200 with 2 mattresses as well as a wardrobe and a chest of drawers. Next to the bed there is a bedside table with a lamp, a second one will be added soon. On the wardrobe you will find a travel bed for kids (120x60cm); it is not new, but in quite good condition.
Bathroom: Contains a bath tub including a shower, a washbasin and the WC with a water-saving flush. On the wall there are 5 – 6 hooks for towels, near the tub there are towel rails. An anti-slip mat in the tub guarantees a safe bath or shower, ther is a potty, and a small stool for toddlers makes sure that they reach the basin. And there are shelves for your toiletries.
THE ATELIER (called this because the previous owner, also an artist, used it as his studio or workroom). 2 beds, 120x200cm each. A walk-in wardrobe behind curtains with shelves, a rail and room for shoes, two shelves and the like as well as a sitting area with a table and two wooden chairs. In general: All mattresses are hard rather than soft and in good condition (none of them saggy or worn out). All beds are protected by moscito nets. There is no bathroom here.
OUTSIDE There are two sitting areas with wooden tables and chairs or benches – they may be rearranged as you wish (depending on the weather conditions). Moreover, there are a parasol and two hammocks which can be fixed between the apple trees (only one suspension device available at the moment). There are a barbeque, a badminton set, boule balls as well as various gardening tools if you feel like a bit of gardening. A sandbox, two swings and also a lot of sandbox toys are also there.
I think there is everything you need for a wonderful holiday – should you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me.
