An ecologically renovated vacation house for 8-10 persons, if necessary divisible into two vacation apartments for 4 and 6 persons – surrounded by forest, meadows and waters invite you to a simply beautiful vacation.
The object is especially suitable for allergy sufferers. The lower floor is largely barrier-free. Our solar plant produces plenty of green electricity. Organic waste is composted, wastewater is treated in a constructed wetland in the garden and kept in the landscape. For the cold season, the house is insulated with a thick layer of flax. Guests can further reduce gas consumption by operating the large fireplace stove.
Vacation home operator Thomas Volpers is a qualified biologist and nature park expert. At home in the Uckermark since 1993 as a nature conservation consultant, nature guide and landscape planner, he knows the most beautiful places in our three National Natural Landscapes. For families, groups or individually, a bicycle, hiking or canoe tour will take you to the beavers, bats or frogs & toads – in any case, you will experience nature up close. Even if you want to learn more about the carnivorous plants in the moor, our impressive forests or the origin of dune and heath – together you will find the right tour in the Uckermark Lakes Nature Park, the Schorfheide-Chorin Biosphere Reserve or the Lower Oder Valley National Park.
For travel and transportation on site as well as for nature tours we recommend to avoid the car if possible. The own feet, rental bike or canoe are in the Uckermark hip means of transportation. A transfer including luggage transport from Templin train station by car or bike is possible.
