Ah, those crazy Germans. What will they think of next, eh? This latest piece of Teutonic nuttiness is located within spitting distance of Lake Constance, or Bodensee, if you prefer, at the foot of the Alps. The perfect place to enjoy a rural retreat.
The trouble with the great outdoors, of course, is that there’s no roof, and it tends to rain, snow, start blowing a gale, or in some other way piss on your chips. HutnBreakfast take all the potential for weather disturbances out of the equation by moving the cabins indoors, to the first floor of a disused textile factory. There are five of the titular huts – which in the interests of transparency we should probably say are more like sheds than log cabins – which range from the compact and bijou 6m2 to the positively palatial 9m2 version with two bedrooms. Built in a variety of materials, the fun little hideaways all have their own courtyard in which to dine and relax (campfires probably frowned upon), are furnished with comfier chairs than you would ever find at a common-or-garden variety campsite, and enjoy the use of a shared kitchen and some very smart showers. With the real outdoors literally on the doorstep, HutnBreakfast is perfect for those who like the idea of a rural holiday without having to rough it in any way.
