Townhouse in Zell Mosel, Rhineland Palatinate, Germany - House For Up To 14 People, High Standard, Balcony, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms
Enjoy the full beauty of the Mosel river from direct views out of all front windows and balcony. Our Jewel of the Mosel townhouse is spread across 5 floors, giving commanding views from all levels. It is an ideal base for families and groups with the wide selection of sleeping arrangements which it offers. Everyone can come together in the very large kitchen/dining room or 'do their own thing' on other floors of the house. Be aware there are lots of stairs though - making the house exciting for children to explore!
Relax and sit watching the barges, river cruise ships and pleasure boats passing your windows and balcony on the Mosel. Step outside and board one of these for a trip to nearby Cochem or Traben Trabach. Sit outside under grape vines on the promenade or wander the streets of the town - all criss crossed by vines. Stroll up into the vineyards behind the house for magnificent views, or for the more energetic take well marked Nordic walking routes. There are even dog walks marked out by paw prints, and we are very pet friendly!
Enjoy sampling the famous wines from the local vineyards - you are sure to take home some bottles of the famous Zeller Schwarze Katz!
The house is well equipped and furnished so even on a rainy day you would be happy indoors (if you had not chosen to explore the exciting museums of Roman Trier!)
The property comprises of 250 sq metres of living space!

Guestbook comments from the owner
This property was previously owned by Chris and Gini Aloise, who received many positive testimonials. The house has recently changed hands to us and remains basically unchanged. We look forward to welcoming new and returning guests! We ourselves stayed as guests at the property twice and fell in love with it, so jumped at the chance to buy it!

Lovely apartment, beautiful view
This is a very attractive apartment with a spectacular view over the river from the balcony. Very spacious, with comfy beds, plenty of bathrooms to choose from and a lovely large kitchen. It was spotlessly clean, thanks to the efforts of Margot. Right in the centre of Zell with a tourist information centre a couple of minutes walk away.
The only misunderstanding concerned the use of the washing machine. I always book apartments which provide a washer as we like to move around but travel light so tend to wash as we go. Since the washer/dryer in the actual apartment was in a locked room we assumed that we should use the one in the basement. However, when we went to pick up the washing we bumped into Margot who seemed really surprised we were using it and had taken our washed clothes out so that she could use it. She told us not to use the dryer until she had finished as it could blow a fuse. Not a problem, but I hadn't realised we would be sharing it. Since we were out by the time she was finished though, she was kind enough to run our things through the dryer and put them in our apartment.
Zell is an ideal spot for a couple of days. Very small and quiet but pretty and relaxing. It doesn't have a supermarket though so if you come without a car as we did, it is easier to eat out. Our next port of call was Bernkastel-Kues. We had the option of taking the bus (about an hour and a quarter) or taking the boat from just outside the apartment (about 4 hours). In the end we opted for the boat and I'm so glad we did. The journey was really scenic, the time whizzed by and by the time we had something to eat and drink we had arrived. Definitely recommend!
We stayed in the house for 5 days in June 2015 - there were 3 couples and we had plenty of space - the kitchen is fantastic with lovely views over the river mosel as you are dining. The balcony area on the top floor was fantastic for a late night glass of wine/beer at the end of the day looking at the cruisers go by. The location of the house is right in the centre of Zell and the town itself is a perfect base for exploring the area. Would highly recommend and cannot wait to go back again - was the highlight of our 3 week holiday in Germany/Holland this year. - Edwina, Dublin
We booked this accommodation as a base for our motorbike trip around the Mosel Valley, it was an ideal choice and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable , it was spacious and clean. The location of this apartment is minutes from restaurant's ,pubs and bakers. The view across the river was a great way to wake up. Over all a fantastic stay!!! 10/10
Maison très bien équipée et très propre
Excellent séjour dans une maison très bien équipée et très propre.
Nous avions loué l'entièreté de la maison pour un week-end familial avec nos enfants et petits enfants( 12 personnes).
La vue sur la Moselle depuis la cuisine et le salon est magnifique et la terrasse a pu accueillir des apéros pour les 9 adultes.
Merci à Madame Hammer pour son accueil en français et pour sa gentillesse à résoudre un petit souci pratique.
Ein wunderschöne und sehr gut ausgestattete Wohnung. Noch zentraler geht gar nicht. Kann ich nur weiter empfehlen.
