Great House! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Monschau before but never stayed there. We wanted to be in the Old Town for the atmosphere of this beautiful town. This house was perfect for our short stay - lovely decorated rooms with style and old charm, a good size bathroom and comfortable beds. It is right in the Altstadt but is calm! The house manager was also really lovely to us. We will be returning for the Christmas market.

ein ausgezeichneter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus war wirklich perfekt für uns, wir waren direkt im romantischen Herzen von Monschau.

Die Zimmer sind sauber und schön eingerichtet.

Der Hauseigentümer hat sehr nett mit uns geschrieben und uns seine Unterstützung angeboten.

Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder und ich kann auch jedem das Haus nur weiterempfehlen!

Grande maison bien situé (Great house well placed)

  • 5 of 5

After a long journey we were pleased to arrive in gorgeous Monschau. The parking is near the house and an easy walk to the house which is right in the centre of the romantic old town. The house is spotless clean, warm and well stocked with things - comfortable beds and peaceful. We did walks and the very helpful and friendly house manager Ute have us some good advice on restaurants - you must try the schnitzel at zum Haller. Overall a great holiday and we had the whole house, much better than an apartment which we have had before. Good value and worth a visit. Delphine & Claude

Excellent position in town spacious but cosy

  • 4 of 5

Arriving in Monschau is like landing in a fairy tale !!! The house is in an excellent position, I loved sitting in the kitchen with the windows open listening to all the sounds of everyone enjoying the town and the smell of the waffle shop, bakers and restaurants enticing you out for a walk. We came for the Christmas period with our two children aged 12 and 11 and had the most fantastic week - there is so much to see and do, the weather was very mild so that helped for exploring local forests, lakes and villages. Plenty of shops to wander around and the glass factory kept the children entertained on a wet afternoon. The house was spacious, cosy and very warm. We will return one day very soon.....Thank you for letting us stay

We Love It! Great house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I travelled over from the US to see where my father had served in WW2 and booked the house directly. The owner was really helpful with the booking and trusted us to pay on arrival which is super rare, he also provided me with first class information about the history nearby and where to park, restaurants etc. The house is large, very clean and we loved all the rooms. The bathroom is spacious for a European house and we loved the corner bath! We went to the great little bakery over the road for some wonderful German cakes for breakfast and tok them back to the house and ate around the lovely table with a view of the folks passing by - great! The large living area is warm and cozy and even has some DVD's for the kids and a comfortable sofa. Monschau is a really delightful and relaxing town, the folks are friendly and there's a whole bunch of activities to do around the area - check out the gorgeous Rursee area, just great. We have dreams of owning a house in Germany some day and Monschau is the place to be - the house is perfect for a vacation and we will definitely return again as we all felt at home - thanks Mr Tuck we will be in touch.

Monschau is a beautiful historic town, nestled in the Eifel hills. To relax, why not explore the Monschau’s wealth of bakeries, cafes, restaurants and bars. Or take a stroll through the Eifel national park and nature reserve. During the warmer months you can explore the stunning Rursee by boat, followed by lunch in a café overlooking the lake. Monschau has numerous small museums, such as the famous 18th century ‘Red House’, glass blowing museum, mustard museum and brewery museum to name but a few! The border with Belgium and Holland are only a short drive away by car, while Cologne and picturesque Maastricht can be reached within an hour. Feeling energetic? Mountain bikes are available for hire, and the 1200m summer toboggan run at Rohren is certainly worth a visit! In winter it is also possible to ski. Monschau has a swimming pool with water slide, whirlpool and toddler's pool. For children, the Hellenthal Wild Animal Park is must see!

There is always something to do in Monschau.
