  • Description


    Hi there,
    We are a family of 6( Mum, Dad, Chad-18 and Matthew -8, our 2 dogs - Bob and Leia) and after moving to Germany in 2020 have taken on a refurb project in the lovely town of Schwäbisch Hall.
    We are originally from South Africa, but have travelled far and wide ourselves, so want others to enjoy the experiences of new countries, people and things to do.

    Schwäbisch Hall is an amazing historic town in Germany with the most amazing Summers days and close links to the cities. So the best of both worlds...
