Here is Cindy's Feedback:

Lovely stay in beautiful location
The apartment was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed (apart from wifi). The location, right in the centre of Bacharach, was perfect and we had beautiful views over the vineyards. We did however encounter a communication problem with the owner, who didn't speak English and was unable to let us know how and where to pick up the apartment key. We overcame this by asking a friend to translate an email into German for us. :-). Mr Borlan, from whom we collected the key, was very welcoming and kind, even though he couldn't speak English and we couldn't speak German. It would've been useful to know the folowing: - one can park a short walk away from the apartment, just outside the town walls, by the Rhine, and this was €10 for a month, for which we needed coins - very few, if any restaurants or shops accept credit cards - there is a small supermarket in Bacharach that was difficult to find Overall, we would highly recommend both the apartment and location and had a wonderful holiday!

What I liked best: Location

What I liked least: Credit cards were not accepted anywhere
