Welcome to the Chestnut Cottage in Rantzau!
Enjoy your holiday in a historic holiday house / apartment in the rural tranquility of Holstein Switzerland and in the immediate vicinity of the Baltic Sea.
Our historic Fachkatekate was built in 1870 and was originally the residence of four farming families. In the meantime, we have built it into a cozy and comfortable home for us and for rest-loving guests who want to spend their holidays in the hilly landscape of Holstein Switzerland and in a peaceful rural setting.
Between the market towns Plön and Lütjenburg you will find the small and sleepy village Rantzau. It is easy to reach via a country road. It connects Plön with Lütjenburg and ends in its extension directly on the Baltic Sea. However, Chestnut Cottage is far enough away from all the major roads, so you will spend your holiday in the middle of nature and in complete tranquility.
The white beach of Howacht can be reached in 15 minutes, the lakes of Holstein Switzerland are practically on the doorstep and should you fancy city, then Plön, Bad Malente and Lütjenburg are each a ten minute drive away. Kiel can be reached in 30 minutes, Lübeck in 45 and in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg in about 75 minutes.
In 2013 we extensively renovated one of the two halves of the house. We have retained the charm of the old and at the same time made sure that you have all the comfort for a relaxing holiday. Visible old beams are combined with a modern kitchen, a wooden floor with a new bathroom, a cozy corner sofa with antiques and a box spring bed with visible truss. In short, everything that makes a holiday for two, relaxing.
We look forward to you!
Michael Paul and Stefan Johannes
