About Mrs Mary Harper

We first discovered Traben-Trarbach in 1998 and after many holidays and professional visits here, we decided to buy our home in the Mosel Valley in 2010 - and we've never regretted it.

We are happy living here and are still discovering new places to visit in and around the Mosel Valley; in the Rhine Valley to the east, the Eifel to the north, the Hunsrück to the south and Belgium, Luxembourg and France to the west.

Having known the area for many years we are happy to help you plan your stay here so that you can enjoy the area as much as we do.

Mrs Mary Harper purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Mrs Mary Harper chose Traben-Trarbach

During our many visits here we saw numerous lovely houses in beautiful locations but when we first saw this house with its stunning views of the Mosel Valley vineyards we felt that this surpassed them all.

Our house is in a quiet area about 100m above the Mosel and the views are stunning. To the rear of the house we have panoramic views of the Mosel Valley vineyards: to one side of our house we look over woodland, vineyards and the valley of a small stream, whilst from the front we have a small area of grassland with woods beyond it.

We are happy living here and are still discovering new places to visit in and around the Mosel Valley.

What makes this apartment unique

The front door of the holiday flat opens directly onto one of three patio areas in our secluded and peaceful garden – ideal for sitting, relaxing, enjoying the views and sampling the local produce or a cup of tea! You may spot a variety of different birds and perhaps catch a glimpse of deer and red squirrels.

The village of Wolf and the small town of Traben-Trarbach both offer a variety of good quality restaurants and cafes, many alongside the river. Why not take a boat trip from either Wolf or Traben-Trarbach to enjoy the delights of the Mosel?

There are footpaths from more or less outside the front door offering a variety of walks. Cycling is popular here, bike hire is available locally and there are many signposted cycle paths – level or hilly.

Beautiful view, wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the apartment. There is a lovely garden area with a view of the vineyards right out the front window. The town (and Christmas markets that go past New Year's) are a just couple minutes away by car.

Mary was the perfect host! Communication was excellent. She met us when we arrived, showed me around the apartment and gave us a bottle of local wine as a welcoming gift. So kind! There were towels and sheets and she had even set up the extra bed for our large family. There is also a large binder full of local attractions and restaurants, some card games and books. The apartment is very clean and private. Thank you for a great trip, we hope to be back in summer!

Comfortable apartment in the middle of the valley

  • 4 of 5

Great location in the middle of the beautiful Mosel Valley. We found the place easily and were warmly welcomed by Mary & Rick. The apartment is spacious, clean and comfortable with a lovely garden and outdoor seating. Our 10 year old daughter enjoyed the pool and the friendly dogs very much. We stayed 10 days and visited the little towns and castles along the Mosel. Just driving through the vineyards was so enjoyable with such fantastic views. Mary provided us with a folder with information/leaflets on places to visit in the area and very kindly obliged us by making dinner reservations for us at The Moselperle on our first night. Both Mary and Rick are very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We had the most beautiful and relaxing holiday and look forward to staying there again soon. Thank you so much Mary & Rick.

One of the best holidays I've had

  • 5 of 5

We found the place without any problems and were made very welcome. The accommodation is very clean, and amazingly quiet. There are red squirrels! Mary and Rick are so helpful, recommending places to visit, and particularly, where to buy wine. Although there is no shop within easy walking distance, there is an excellent supermarket in Traben-Trarbach, so catering was no problem. Travelling by train was inexpensive and straightforward, so we were able to go as far as Cologne, Boppard and Trier on day trips with no trouble. We had a really good holiday, and would go back again: highly recommended.
