Where you’ll be

Othmarsingen, Aargau, Switzerland

The house has good vibes and is very quiet. You will sleep very well there. From the masterbedroom you can step out into the garden. It is located in a small village, easily accessed by car and commuter rail. The local supermarket is only 2 minutes walking distance away. Nature lovers will discover lovely walks in the nearby forest. From spring to fall you can enjoy our boat on Lake Hallwil, 21 km away. That's always a major highlight for all the kids of my friends and family. For more information please have a look at the guidebook. Thank you!

Dear guest The house you're interested in has always been home to a large family. It has been built on grounds which have been in the family much longer than anyone of us can remember. When my parents died I couldn't bring myself to sell it. Instead I renovated it thoroughly. I live abroad at least half of the year. It took me some time to realize that what the house and I really wanted is to have you enjoy it as much as we did. By now you will have guessed, that real estate is one of my hobbies. This may sound silly but I enjoy nothing more than taking care of houses and gardens and people. I find that very meaningful. Since it's the whole house you will rent, our interations will probably be limited. However, if you wish for more interaction and I am available, I will be glad to dicuss this with you and help you to organize your family event. My life motto is 'live and let live´.

During your stay

You will rent the whole house. That means that I will be gone as soon as you don't need me anymore. However, I love people and I love to entertain. If you wish for more interaction with the host, please let me know and it can be arranged. You will be able to reach me during your whole stay.
