schönes Haus in Bonn/Rhein

We live in a nice and quiet residential area of Bonn, the former German capital. We are living here with 4 persons: my husband and me with our two daughters, 10 and 13 years old. We are interested in visiting Great Britain next summer but are also open to other destinations.

Our house has 120 square metres and a large but cosy garden with a sunny terrace and BBQ, where we spend our summers gardening (I try my best in a little vegetable garden) and relaxing (for the children: trampoline, several swings, wooden play house). On the main floor we have a spacious and comfortable living room with a flatscreen-TV, WLAN and a piano, a kitchen (including a dish washer) with a comfortable dining room, one bedroom (queensize bed) and a toilet. On the first floor there are two bedrooms (single beds, 3 matresses for guests), a bathroom (wc, basin, bath) and a very large and very sunny balcony. There is a very large amount of Playmobil and lots of other toys, games etc. In the basement we have storage closets, another bathroom (wc, basin, shower) and a study with two desks and a sofa that can be used as a double bed. There is place for two cars to park.

Our neighbourhood Ippendorf has everything you need for your daily life within walking distance: bakery, flower shop, ice cream parlour, supermarket, restaurant – and we are situated directly next to the Kottenforst, a huge forest with a playground, a deer park, a horse farm, and lots of possibilities for walks and bicycle tours to the Biergärten (garden pubs) around – we have 6 bicycles in nearly all sizes in the garage. There is also a charming, very green outdoor swimming pool only 10 minutes away by bike.

The city centre of Bonn ist only 10-15 minutes away by public transport or by car and offers a lot to see and to enjoy: life here is marked by the university that is located in the baroque castle built by the Elector prince Clemens August in the 18th century. Apart from other historical sights Bonn also offers quite nice shopping possibilities and picturesque areas for relaxation: the Hofgartenwiese, a botanical garden, sunny rhineside esplanades.

Bonn, as Beethoven's birth place, offers a lot of cultural events especially in summer, and is located in a culturally rich area: the World Heritage Site of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley with all its castles is not far away (1h), as also are Cologne (20 minutes), Düsseldorf (40 minutes), Maastricht (1h) or even Brussels (1h 40).
