About our home

Single-family-home, surrounded by vineyards in the center of beautiful swabian tuscany. On top of a hill with a great view. Very less traffic, very quiet and TOP for Kids and babies/toddler/young children. We have a pool in the garden, a teeter-totter, children's slide, sand-box and two children's swings. Bicycles with a child-seat available, too.

It doesn't matter if you exchange with us in summer or winter, you'll enjoy all amenities for sure. Quite every winter we get snow and when it's enough, the next Ski-Lift is only 25 km far away. If you just want to have fun with your sledge, enjoy the kids-track right beside the house, only 1 minute by feet. You'll love it.

The house itself has 1 bedroom for parents (with waterbed), 2 bedrooms for children (first bedroom with one bed, second bedroom with two beds) and a bedroom for two toddler/babies/young children with two small beds which can also be used as another bedroom with an inflatable Queen Size Bed. We have full equipment for toddler/young children.

Furthermore are a living room with cable TV, DVD, PayTV and Internet-PC, a full equipped kitchen, two showers, a corner Bath tub, a dryer, a microwave, a dish washer and a washing machine.

We have three bunnies which will stay at home while we exchange. If you can't carry about, no problem. We will find a solution. We also have a small dog (Beagle) which will come with us if it is okay with you or the dog will stay at relatives while we exchange.

We enjoyed a wonderful summer holidays on August 2013 at Obersulm in the house of the Manuel and family. Their house is nice, tidy and clean. The neighbours friendly and helpful and the surrounding countryside absolutely beautiful!! We had a lovely time walking and cycling around, specially to the Breitenauersee and awesome lake just at a 10 minutes bicycle ride from the house. Also, you can easily reach from there many of the German historical cities such as Badwimpfen or the famous Heidelberg. Manuel left us a manual with all what we needed to know about his house and a lot of information more such us where to go shopping, doctors, places to visit, etc. He really made it very easy for us. We do truly recommend these family and their house for an exchange. Thank you for letting us stay at your home, it has been a pleasure doing an exchange with you!!.

Our three weeks in Obersulm were amazing! The house is just perfect... very clean with everything (and more) that you could possibly wish for. this family made every effort to make our welcome perfect. They left a detailed book on how everything in the house works as well as providing brochures on many things to do in the area. Obersulm is very well situated with many places to visit. The location of the house itself is wonderful... on top of a small hill. From here you have views of the vineyards, the orchards and the surrounding valleys. There is so much to do... the local lake is more like an incredibly well-equipped beach... it was perfect for swimming, running and walking. All the roads in the area have cycle paths running alongside so cycling was safe for us and for the children. Do not have any preconceived ideas about going to Germany on holiday. This place is simply fantastic and you will not regret it! If you are in any doubt about choosing this family for home exchange we can put you in touch with them and we're sure we can convince you. In short, this place is a well-kept secret! It comes with our highest recommendation. We found our house exactly as we had left it... spotless! Even our neighbours commented on how polite yet discrete they were. Perfect house exchangers.
