As it is a traditional Black Forest building of the 19th century, the holiday house 'Valley View' is not suitable for persons who are taller than 2,00 m. In this case, we recommend our holiday apartments in the modern guesthouse of the Black Forest Farm which was built in 1992. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE CANNOT MAKE FINAL BOOKINGS WITHOUT KNOWING THE CUSTOMER'S FULL NAME, HOME ADDRESS AND PRIVATE TELEPHONE NUMBER. A PROVISIONAL RESERVATION MADE WILL BE CANCELLED AFTER 24 HOURS WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE, IF WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE A.M. PERSONAL DETAILS REQUESTED.

immaculate dog friendly beutiful,spaceious haven

  • 5 of 5

if you have dogs love good food, want to experience the beauty of Germany and insist on high standards of hygiene, then this is the place for you.

the owners are on site at for assistance, nothing is too much trouble , although the owners are on site they are not intrusive. the accommodation is excellent i spent

two glorious weeks here the weather is warm all day and cool in the evening (September) the shutters on all windows means you can sleep in a cool dark room at night or day my two dogs had the time of their lives playing in the various meadows no traffic means they are safe to play. i cannot praise this place enough.

i have booked tree weeks next year and can't wait to return.

We stayed at Haus Wussler this past June 2012 with our family of 5 (Children ages 18, 16 and 14) in the Valley View apartment. We can’t say enough about this lovely place. It is a few minutes out of charming Gengenbach on a working farm with fantastic views of the Valley. The sunsets were incredible from our flat! The flat is enormous, tastefully decorated and thoroughly modern. The kitchen is fully equipped and lacks for nothing. Barbara and her husband, Erwin, could not be any more gracious and helpful. They picked us up from the train station and even drove us to the grocery store at 9 at night! Farm fresh eggs were on our door step every morning. We loved the town of Gengenbach as a base for traveling in the Black Forest area. (We had rented a car.) We hiked and biked and visited Baden-Baden, Freiburg and Strasbourg, among other places. Compared to hotel prices, this place was very affordable. We would recommend this flat to anyone!

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in this beautiful house for a week, with our 3 years old son. The facilities of the house were so full with thought, convenience - that made our staying enjoyable. The playing yard, the farm with the animals made our son very happy, and for us the opportunity to get some rest.

Barbara and Erwin, the owners of the house were hospitable, took care of any our request, played with our son- riding the tractor, feeding the animals.

Thank you for wonderful vacation. We sure to come again, and sincerely recommend this villa for the vacation.
