Further Info about Ferienhaus Kessachidyll
The complex of the former inn „Zum goldenen Ochsen,“ consisting of a main house from 1762, a barn built against it, and a separate guest house, the foundations of which are even older and were originally used in a pig and chicken barn, is a state-protected architectural monument. The complex of houses forms one of the largest and most beautiful of not just the village, but the surrounding area as well. The park-like garden offers many opportunities to retreat and relax, is surrounded by a wall giving privacy without feeling constricting. The farmer’s garden (Bauerngarten) has inviting places to have breakfast outdoors, surrounded by flowers and box tree hedges. After an exciting day, you can relax making a barbecue, in the sauna or comfortably, by the hearth.
The immediate vicinity holds two of the UNESCO world cultural heritage sites: the baroque Würzburg Residence and the border constructions of the Upper Germanic-Raetic Limes. Whether on a short weekend or for weeks, with car/oldtimes or bike, as a couple or with family – many sights and museums, villages and towns, facilities for activities and sports offer manifold possibilities to explore the “Swabian Provence.” Castle Festival (Burgfestspiele) Jagsthausen, Hohenloher Kultursommer (summer of culture events) and other open air-concerts and theater showings make the summers highly interesting to anyone with a foible for culture. Gourmets find good restaurants and vintners as well as a multitude of people who produce local delicacies.
Unterkessach in the idyllic valley of the Kessach is a dreamy little village which has always been a border region and has, therefore, kept much of its original character. It has been awarded supraregionally in the “Unser Dorf soll schöner werden”- (Let’s make our village more beautiful) competition and offers a quality of life that is extraordinary. Its location is quite secluded, but central: Stuttgart, Würzburg, Mannheim, Heidelberg, Frankfurt and Nuremberg can all be reached by car within an hour.
In the guesthouse, your accommodation is some 45 sq.m. big, and you can also use the outdoor facilities and the sauna and fitness area in the barn. Your vehicle or bikes can be parked in the inner courtyard for easy access and safekeeping. In the farmer’s store right across, you can get regional specialties, and in the small village museum with blacksmith’s workshop, you can (with an appointment) get an impression of Unterkessach’s history. Given a little luck, your hosts may find the time to invite you for a drink and tell you more about the history of the region and area, the as well as the building complex.
