The cozy house is an old farm house which got renovated in 2014. The interior is a mixture of French Brocante/Flea Market style (which matches the old wooden elements of the house) with the new elements, yet all rooms and everything is completely newly renovated in 09/2014. There is a floor heating in the bathroom and normal heating system elsewhere.
Palingen used to be a GDR border village, so normal citizens were not allowed, only frontier soldiers. Everything survived very charming.
