Here is Sarah's Feedback:

Lovely spacious apartment in nice area and walkable to the city centre
The apartment was large and well-equipped. As our son is a university student he wanted his own space to study and relax whilst away with us. The apartment had a spacious feel and a good range of resources. It is situated in a lovely area of Heidelberg which has a village-feel; there are some lovely independent shops and a nearby square with restaraunts and good German beer. On Wedensdays and Saturdays there is a lovely farmers' market too. We walked into Heidelberg most days, the flat is only a 15 minutes leisurely walk from town and less than 5 minutes form the Philopshers' Way gardens and walk. The owner is a very nice friendly lady who made the effort to come and meet us. We would love to return. Thank you!

What I liked best: The area and the space!

What I liked least: Nothing
