A cosy attic room (single bedroom) is situated on the second floor of the new building.

On the same floor is an ample studio room (26 sqm) for 2 or likewise for a whole family: Besides 2 twin beds a pull-out sofa bed (size 135x200 cm) provides another sleeping accommodation for two .
Also on the attic floor you find the spacious, modern and bright guests' bathroom with tub, shower, 2 sinks and toilet.

On the first floor we have another big room, which can be used as additional bedroom for two or as lounge/sitting room. The room has a balcony and a beautiful view of the park at the neighbour winery. This room is equipped with television set, hi-fi system, piano and a home library containing books and parlour games.

The large kitchen with dining room (table and seats for 6 people) and a separate toilet are available on the same floor. - From the dining room you have acces to the large balcony, where Mediterranean plants are greening and flowering throughout the summer. At summer time it actually is the most beautiful spot of the Language Guesthouse. It's the perfect place to enjoy a sunny breakfast or maybe a delicate dinner or barbecue party on warm evenings and to sit and talk with a glass of wine until midnight.

The new building (B&B house) provides room for up to 7 guests in 3 rooms (single / double / family room for max 4 guests)

Yes, you've read properly: In the Bed & Breakfast house not every bedroom has its own bathroom and TV set. The house wasn't built to become a guest house but a family home. But please don't deem this only a disadvantage! It makes up a basic feature of the particular charme of the house. The Language Guesthouse didn't get its name by chance: It is a house, where guests speak with each other! - You won't find a separate breakfast table only for you and your dear darling at the Language Guesthouse! You may have breakfast in company with total strangers, start a conversation (using whatever language you like) and find out, how exciting and interesting such a(n) - international - breakfast talking can be. - And very soon you won't have a problem any more agreeing with your housemates upon undisturbed bathroom use for all parties.

By the way, rooms at the Language Guesthouse are rented at same prices throughout the year, even in the peak season (August - middle October) and on high frequented "long" weekends. Only, at times, when everyone seeks a getaway, you'll probably have to share the bathroom with other guests, whereas at less frequented times you'll have it just for you. - Anyway, at any season you'll enjoy your shower or relaxing bath in a bright, ample, comfortable room of well-being instead of a narrow "functional wet room". - And using the calmer season for your trip you may find a reading/ TV/music/ playing room at the LG instead of the third bedroom.

Just have a look at the availability calendar for a vacant room in your desired period of time!

Lodging prices are given here

Nothing for you, anyway?
Then come on and book the Apartment in the Old Winegrower House! - There you'll have a private bathroom (granted, a smaller one than in the B&B house) and a priivate TV. And you can still join our international breakfast circles, if you book extra breakfast.

Part of the Language Guesthouse is a flat which has been available as language students' or tourists' accommodation since spring 2010.

The flat is located on the ground floor of the Old Winegrower House. Its size is about 55 square metres. It has a large bed- and living room (double bed, size 160x200 cm), a smaller room with another sleeping accommodation for 1 or 2 people (pull-out sofa bed, size 160x200 cm), a modern bathroom with tub and a bright and spacious kitchen with dining corner for 4 persons. The kitchen provides all needed self-catering facilities (electric stove, oven, sink, dish washer, fridge, pots and pans, plates and dishes, microwave, coffee maker etc.)

The entrance looks at the patio of the house. In the patio is an outdoor sitting area (table, chairs, bench)

The flat has a hard wood floor in the big room and tiles in the smaller room, kitchen and bathroom.
It is suitable for slightly handicapped people (4 steps, not for wheel chairs). In the smaller room there is a flat screen TV (satellite antenna). The flat has fast internet access (cable). WiFi is not in all rooms available (signal too weak), but it works pretty well in the sitting area in the inner court yard and probably in the kitchen.

Predominantly this flat is a holiday home for self-caterers. Optional - and recommended to language students - you can book breakfast, half or full board and lodging.
