Guest Opinions

Naprosto jedinečné ubytování! Na romantický pobyt jsem prozatím nenarazil na stylovější ubytování. Ve spojitosti s naprostým soukromím mohu jen doporučit.

Der Turm ist eine äußerst extravagante Unterkunft. Im "Prinzessinnenbett" lässt es sich süß träumen. Insgesamt eine außergewöhnliche Erfahrung.

Ideal place for romantic getaway. Beautifully restored historic building with great touches. Good selection of wines in the cellar.

Romantisch verblijf. Een uniek verblijf in een oude toren. Zeer stijlvol ingericht. Echte privacy!!!
