About our home

Our 300sm loft is located in the city of Reutlingen, South-West Germany, in the heart of Europe. In an old industrial building (built in 1903) we have created an extraordinary and inspiring blend of modern art, contemporary design and antique furniture. There is always something new to be discovered, rearranged or recreated - we have literally turned an old warehouse into a "living space". The large windows provide sunlight and fantastic views of the sky at any given time. The main room has 200sm with an open kitchen, dining table, living room section, bedroom and study all in one, but perfectly arranged and divided to provide comfortable corners. The seperate room can be used as an extra bedroom, study, yoga-room or whatever. For potential artists and craftsmen we have a fully equipped workshop with space to unfold creativity. You will love it!


More about us

  1. Cornelius (45) and I (Clarissa, 40) are both life coaches and artists engaged in fine arts, photography, and writing. We see our life as a piece of art, that we create anew every day. We have travelled a lot, however we feel most at home in Cape Town (Table Mountain, the two oceans, the cosmopolitain atmosphere and it's people) and in Reutlingen (for its landscape, it's cultural life and it's prosperity). In the future we intend to spend half of the year here and half there. The experiences we have personally made in various cultures and, especially, through our coaching and our creative work, we pass on to people who want to make a difference in this world. We would love to exchange homes with somebody who is willing to be inspired by our life-style and through whom we can learn to see life from a new perspective. Does that appeal to you?

Where is it?


Reutlingen is situated in the heart of Europe, very close to France (150km), Switzerland (170km) and Austria (250km). It is a historic city in the midst of beautiful countryside, ideal for any outdoor activities (hiking, biking, golfing, swimming, horse-riding, even skiing). We have Mediterranean summers and cold, crisp winters, green and lush springs and bright coloured falls. Reutlingen offers weekly fruit & veg markets (also organic), art galeries and jazz concerts (even in our building), museums, theaters, cinemas, and other seasonal cultural events. Close-by historic sites invite to explore the region. The city of Stuttgart with its fantastic museums, world-famous ballet and opera, the Mercedes-Benz and Porsche Museums is only half an hours drive away (35km) and worth visiting. In Metzingen (10km), Germany's biggest outlet-city, extraordinary and good-value shopping of designer-clothes is available (home-city of Hugo Boss). There is definitely something for everybody and Reutlingen is an ideal base for travelling the neighbouring European countries. A wonderful and safe place to be!
