As a passionate bike traveler across Europe, I have shifted my focus more and more to sustainable circulation systems and am now dedicating myself to self-sufficiency systems and the production of tiny houses. Together with my wife, our children, cats and alpacas, we build our farm from a permacultural and biodynamic point of view.

Tell us about your experience
Very nice facility with lots of space and everything you need! Right on site: bench, table, chairs, grill, fire barrel, firewood, coal, dry toilet, platform for tent, swing! And there are other sanitary facilities just 200 m away, everything is super clean and in top condition.
Perhaps the only downer is that the meadow is right next to a road where there isn't much traffic, but especially during working hours you're more likely to hear the cars than nature. Otherwise it's not really a problem!

How was the contact with the host?
Very uncomplicated and direct :)

Tell us about your experience
We spent 5 great nights in Roland and his family's garden. It was really really nice. Our children were enthusiastic about the alpacas, which had their run just a few meters from our tent. Family connection was included, our children got along so well with Roland's children that they didn't want to go home. By the way, the extremely summery weather made our stay the perfect camping experience for us. We'd love to come back - thanks again for the great time! :)

How was the contact with the host?
Absolutely uncomplicated. Fast answers to all questions in advance. During the stay we saw each other several times a day and chatted briefly, so that everything was easy to clarify.

Super relaxed stay. Roland and his family are wonderful people. Both our kids (3 & 7) loved playing in the garden with their daughter. There was a beautiful treehouse, lovely small kitchen and an epic sauna.
No compromises what so ever.

How was the contact with the host?
Great interaction in German and English. They're both very helpful. (Store, things to do, stuff you need)

Tips for new guests?
Bring along your sauna towel.

Tell us about your experience
The apple orchard was wonderfully green and the weather was fantastic - we really enjoyed our time with Ailyn and Roland on the farm! The equipment is simple, but completely sufficient. A small challenge was setting up the tent and sleeping on the not entirely flat surface. But we also had a big tent... ;-)

How was the contact with the host?
The communication in the run-up to the stay was uncomplicated and we were warmly welcomed and looked after. Thank you for the nice time!

Tell us about your experience
The campsite was on a beautiful apple orchard with a toilet and a table. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. They have put a lot of love and detail into their campspace. There is also a very nice lounge especially for guests in case the weather should be bad. No question, the highlights are definitely the 4 funny alpacas and the lovingly designed courtyard to discover! In general, we were able to quickly switch off from everyday life and relax on the property. It's just great for that. The only thing that pulls you out of the idyll when you're lying on the apple orchard meadow is a country road within earshot. But in our case it really didn't bother us.

How was the contact with the host?
The contact with the hosts was outstanding. They were very helpful and accommodating.

We spent two nights with tent and car in Roland's apple forest and had a wonderful time. We didn't miss anything and we can unreservedly recommend the place and the hosts!
From hiking to city trips, everything is possible in the area.

How was the contact with the host?
Simple and uncomplicated communication before and during the stay. Roland and his family were super friendly, relaxed and responded to all questions / requests. For example, we were allowed to park our electric cool box in the yard without any problems and supply it with electricity.

Tell us about your experience
We stood with our van in the apple forest and had it all to ourselves. Everything is prepared with great attention to detail (e.g. book box, toilet house, fireplace). We were allowed to pay a visit to the alpacas in their enclosure at the residential building and stroke them and were given a delicious zucchini from our own garden as a present.

How was the contact with the host?
The hosts are super friendly and helpful. We got a lot of tips about bouldering in the region and if necessary they would have even provided us with bread in the morning.

Tell us about your experience
I was very impressed by our two-day stay on Roland's Land. Here you will find a pleasant contemporary and friendly and flexible host and a good place for shorter stays. There are plenty of opportunities to explore the surrounding area and in summer this area is just magical.

How was the contact with the host?
Flawless communication and uncomplicated processing.

Tips for new guests?
Possibly bring tarpaulin because there is little shade. Access by car is also possible.

Thank you, also for the tip. We now also have a tarp to provide shade.
