Where is it?


We live in a very quiet area , in a sleepy little village, very little traffic passes our door. There are lovely walks cycle paths minuets away! We are in the heart of Franconia, which is a beautiful part of upper Bavaria. Our nearest village Herzogenaurach is a medieval settlement with a quaint centre and many restaurants and bars. We are also 15 k from Erlangen, home of the second biggest beer fest in Germany, and only 20k from Nurenburg, ancient capital of the Holy Roman Emperors and a fascinating city to walk round and dine in!

Buzzy restaurants
Frankischer Hof, typical Franconian food with a modern twist, good steaks and burgers. Kleine Welt, excellent steak Restaurant, many Italian places to eat and drink as well. Nurnburg and Erlangen have sushi and a whole range of international restaurants.
