Village Farmhouse




Five hideouts for 2-5


From 60€

A celebration of the simplicity of country life, in a lovingly renovated 19th-century farmhouse, surrounded by unspoilt lakes


Hidden amongst meadows and lakes, at the heart of the Schaalsee biosphere reserve, you stumble upon a collection of former farm buildings that have been given a new lease of life. Owners Jutta and Frank fell in love with the region, and spent weekend after weekend driving around in their Citroën 2CV in search of somewhere they could claim as their own. After finding this 19th-century farmhouse, they spent years loving restoring timbered cottages, wooden barns and old stone walls, giving nods to the history of the place.

Country life is celebrated here, and inside you discover tiled stoves, wrought-iron bed frames and wicker chairs. Outside is just as mesmeric: the expansive gardens feature an orchard, a duck pond and vegetable patches. In spring, nesting songbirds swoop over hedges, through August, shooting stars light up the night’s sky, and in autumn, there’s no better place to be than curled up in front of the crackling fire. Whatever the season, Village Farmhouse is the perfect countryside getaway.
