This was our first stay in this area of Germany and what a treat. There are a variety of towns to visit with cultural treasures from mediaeval castles at Eisenach to Napoleonic battle fields at Jena, the art museum at Weimar and even a facinating museum of the old east/west German border. Lovely countryside and excellent motorways meant access to these sites was easy. The half timbered house we stayed in was ideal for us with a kitchen/dining room, bathroom/toilet and 2 bedrooms. The hosts were very welcoming and although they live on the same site were respectful of our privacy. The village of Laucha is small and has no local shops or restaurants but we were able to get everything we needed from supermarkets in the surrounding towns. The sun shone all week so after our daily travels we were able to sit outside on the patio in the evenings with a beer listening to birdsong and the nearby church bells - delightful. Thoroughly recommended.
