Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The apartment is based in an old Argovian farmhouse from 1860. It is on ground level while the owners live on the upper floors. The house and the surroundings are very rustical and rural, - and the site is not close to big cities. Aarau is 15 km away, Zurich, Berne, Basel und Lucerne are 40-80 km. If you don't like this, I recommend to book somewhere else.

The space
The apartment is closed in itself and accessible by two doors that can be locked. The house entry door is shared. The kitchen is fully equipped for your use, dishwasher, fridge, coffee machine etc, then there is a bathroom, living room with TV and cable connection with 100+TV stations, sleeping room with a double bed, a smaller secondary room again with a double bed and 2 smaller auxillary rooms. There is also a children bed and a nostalgic bassinet for babies. A child seat is there and also a buggy.

Guest access
The guests can use the whole apartment.
Use of the outside facilities possible after coodination with the hosts. Pool, barbecue, tables etc

Other things to note
We have an above ground pool which is in operation from approx. June till the end of September, non heated, fed with spring water. We ask everybody to use the closeby shower. We check water quality regularly. But since the pool is situated under 100 year old trees, we cannot avoid leaves and some debris in the water.
Parents are absolutely and solely responsible for their children.
Self checkin: Normally we try to be there during our defined checkin times. But if nobody opens upon ringing the bell, which means we are absent, please just enter the front door of the house into the corridor. After 5 meters you find two doors to the left, they both enter into your apartment. Just go in and feel free to accomodate yourselves!
Showering: It takes maybe 1 min till the water runs warm. Just let it flow and wait.
We ask for a sustainable use of water. We are off-grid and the water comes from our own well. Secially in Autumn we are sometimes a bit short of water. So, please, no endless shower sessions ;-)

Location

Oberkulm, Aargau, Switzerland

The house is situated in the Swiss middlelands, in the Wyna valley. The valley was carved by the ice ages. 4 km away from our place you can inspect the huge end-moraine of the Reuss glacier of the Würm ice age ca 15 000 years ago. The valley is very peaceful and rural. The surrounding hills are perfects for endless walks, hiking and mountain biking. The whole area is very safe and all the landscape and the forests are open for recreation. The big touristic attractions of Switzerland are within the reach of one day trips: Bernese Oberland, Lucerne, Rigi, Pilatus, Ballenberg, Interlaken, Spiez, Lauterbrunnen, Grindelwald etc. See also below concerning transportation.

Forschung ist mein Beruf und zwar im Bereich Materialwissenschaften. Privat liebe ich es im Garten zu experimentieren mit Permaculture, back to Eden gardening, Hochstammobstbäumen und seltenen Gemüsesorten. Auch traditionelles Handwerk interessiert mich und generell viele Outdoor Aktivitäten. Jeden Abend versüsst Kochen meinen Alltag, und meine Frau freut es. Ich liebe Tolkien's Welt und die darauf basierenden Peter Jackson Filme, C.S. Lewis ist einer meiner liebsten Authoren, Filme: Last Samurai, Star Wars, Subway.
