About our home

We live in a new modern house in the beautiful countryside in north Bayern. It is an ecological solar house: we produce our electricity and most of our heating through solar energy. It is situated at the edge of a small village and with fabulous views across to the Rhön mountains and hills (UNESCO Biosphere Reserve). The house built on 2 levels is spacious and full of light and air. We both live and work here, so downstairs we have our apartment and Bert's practice, and upstairs Alev's practice.
Downstairs there is our livingroom with an open plan kitchen and opening on to a 50 sq.m terrace, our bedroom and large bathroom, a second room for guests, a guest WC, utility room and laundry. On the other side is the therapeutic practice of Bert, with therapy room, bathroom, waiting room and kitchen. The second floor is the working place of Alev, with her office and the large seminar room (over 80 sq.m) with the most beautiful view of the house. All the necessary facilities of modern living are included to a high German standard. If playing the piano is of interest to you, there is one in the house: Alev is also a musician.
It is a generous and comfortable house, with no direct neighbours, but just 200m from the nearest house: you are by yourself and at the same time not alone.


More about us

  1. We are both in our forties, Bert is a psychotherapist, and Alev is a psychologist and musician. We both work with adults. We have 4 donkeys, they are part of our lives and we are part of theirs. They are trained by Alev as therapy donkeys, so that they are active in the psychotherapeutical work of Bert. Bert is German and Alev comes from the Italian part of Switzerland. We both love laughing and being with friends and family.
    Through our donkeys, we are every day outside, training them, working with them, but also taking care of them. You don't have to do it – they are cared for when we are not there - but may be you know donkeys, or horses, so you might enjoy their friendship...

Where is it?


We live Wargolshausen, a little village nearby the Rhön UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, in the heart of Germany.
The nearest city is Bad Neustadt, with all the facilities and shops.
In village itself there is a small public swimming pool, two tennis courts, and the possibility of riding. 20 minutes from us there is a nice golfing place. Our four donkeys are also there, they live in the stable nearby. It is cared for them, you don't have to do anything, but you can enjoy them from the terrace or the sofa. They are friendly and intelligent animals.
We fell in love with the landscape so we decided to grow roots in this very special place. We have good friends living in the village so the integration went very easily. Wargolshausen is small but at the same time a very active place. There are many families with children living here, and in summer the swimming pool is a meeting place for families and friends. All around are woods and fields with a lot to discover... Early in the morning you can meet a deer family or listen to the nightingales. Or sometimes our donkeys calling for their breakfast.
This region is also very much known for the natural thermal waters, so in many cities around us, you can go and enjoy the thermal baths. Especially the bath of Bad Kissingen is worth visiting, a wonderful health tempel.
In one hour car drive you come to many historical beautiful cities as Bamberg, Erfurt, Fulda or Würzburg. Frankfurt and Nürnberg, 2 hours from us.
So, you can enjoy nature, culture, health and sports in one beautiful place.
No night life, no chaos, no noise - a wonderful place if you have children, a wonderful place if you just want to relax, enjoy nature and culture.
