Description from the owner
Enjoy a 160 year old restored historic 3 bedroom farmhouse just outside of Constance in the center of the old village of Allensbach. This 1,400ft2/130 qm is wedged between 2 other historic houses, yet providing enough privacy. New style in furnishing meets this historic house, yet preserving a warm & cozy atmosphere. The open floor plan of the kitchen, living room and dining area with access onto the roof terrace are great for entertaining. The terrace & balcony overlook a small cobblestone street and the Lake of Constance, the Monastic Island of Reichenau and the Swiss Alps (weather permitting).
The Harbor and Park are just 100m/300ft away from ...Read more
3 Bedroom Cozy Historic Farmhouse, Lake Constance
Allensbach, Baden Wurttemberg, Germany
Additional Location Information
In the central location of the old village in Allensbach you are just 100m/300ft away from the Harbor with boat connection to the Monastic Island of Reichenau, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and a wonderful destination to visit to hike or bike and explore the rich monastic culture and great restaurants offering local fish and vegetables. By the Harbor you can also rent boats, or walk along the lake promenade where you find restaurants, cafés, a play ground and lake acces for swimming and outdoor concerts.
Just around the corner of your doorstep you find practical stores like a Bank, Butcher, Baker, grocery store and other shopping opportunities. You can also walk to the rail station and travel to the nearby beautiful historic city of Constance downtown in 15 mins/every 20 mins. You can cross the border to Switzerland or connect to Austria by train, ferry boat or bike the many bike trails around the Lake of Constance. The famous Island of Mainau near Constance, know as the “Flower Island” and Meersburg with its old castles and vinyards (connect by ferry from Constance, right across from rail station) are popular historic destinations.
The area of Lake Constance is so rich in historic, cultural and adventures destinations, that a full 2 week schedule couldn't cover half of it. Don't plan too much, though, people here are very “gemütlich” (no english translation really decribes the meaning). They enjoy the cozy wine “stube” and restaurents, walking and sitting in cafés and you will catch this bug too.
With a VHB Visitors Card, which you will receive with your registration, you can use all the buses and trains of the VHB public transport network free of charge. You also receive many discounts for boat rentals, tours, etc.
