Property description

Our ecologically built houses (each 85 m²), surrounded by horse pastures, are located on a sunny southern slope. On the ground floor you will find a living room with an open, completely furnished kitchen with a dishwasher and an oven. The pellet oven, rustic tiling and timber floorboards on the top floor, tasteful wood furniture and wooden decks make sure you feel comfortable and give it that cottage feeling. Furthermore, you will find a double bedroom and a bathroom with heated flooring. By taking comfortable wooden stairs, you will get to the gallery which has Sat-TV, DVD and a sleeper sofa, a cuddly bedroom with 2 beds and sofa bed and a room with a washer. The colourful images from the famous artist Rosina Wachtmeister - who is our guest every year -make for a southern flair. Relax in the beautiful garden and enjoy the view of the valley and the stable nearby. Or spend a romantic evening around a camp-fire in an Indian tepee.

Children get to know horses - Hippolini: This course (certified teacher) offers children and their parents the possibility to dive into the horse world and to build their first contact with these amazing animals. The goal here is to build a solid basis for respectful, unafraid and sensitive contact with horses. Riding for adults at our stable is only available with your own horse due to the lack of suitable school horses. An indoor riding ring, outdoor riding ring and round-pen are available with prior arrangements made with the neighbouring riding stables. For adults without a horse, there is the possibility to go riding at a stable 10 km away - also covered wagon rides. Start from our horse back riding station by the Saarland riding path. Our horse trainer, Marc Schuster, takes care of the education and correction of horses. For tournament preparation with your own horse and riding hours (western riding techniques) Bettina Kulle (trainer C, experienced tournament director - experience through the German championship).

Indian Tepee and Children's Birthdays: Our original Indian tepee, with a diameter of 8 m, offers a comfortable get-together around a camp fire and doesn't only make the children's hearts race! The energy and atmosphere of our tepee makes any event something special - whether it be a birthday party, seminar or family reunion - they will all become an unforgettable experience in our Indian tepee. Host a seminar in the tepee by the light of the fire. Enjoy the beautiful starry sky or search for peace in nature by observing horses in a pasture. Combine your vacation with a special birthday party for your child. We offer a great program for this where the children will be looked after by 2 elementary school educationalists: Indian face paint, making Indian jewellery and a small medicine bag, Indian games, gemstone search, treasure hunt, Indian stories while eating damper bread, building dream catchers, bow and arrow shooting. With our offers we reached the 3rd place in the landlord competition 2008.

Relax, rejuvenate and 'Gudd Gess' in Saarland: You can enjoy swimming and water-sports 5 km away in the Losheim reservoir. If there is bad weather, we recommend the spa in Merzig. There you can relax in warm waters or in the beautiful sauna facilities while your children are playing in the swimming area on the giant slide. After this, go shopping in Merzig and then enjoy culinary delights in one of the several restaurants where dishes from France and Saarland are offered - people from Saarland place a lot of value on their kitchen. You can also drink a good glass of wine in the garden of your vacation home and enjoy the sunset. If you want to explore the surroundings, you can hike through the beautiful premium hiking trails or observe the famous wolf and behavior researcher Werner Freund at his open-air enclosure. You can sail, bike or hike around the famous Saar loop.

Vacation home 1: Losheim am See Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 503248ha

The vacation homes are all furnished the same. They are located offset from each other so that the guests do not disrupt each other. Every house has its own sunny garden area and is separated optically from the others through a plant-fence by the entrance. The parking spaces are found on the access route to the houses. You will feel like you are in the southern Mediterranean through your blue house door and blue wood lays, Mediterranean plants like bananas, oleanders, rosemary, lilacs, roses, colourfully planted flower tubs and the chirping of countless crickets. From the houses you can see a pasture for horses and a large Indian tepee - you can walk past these and it will take you directly into the forest and into the gorge trail. The property is optimal for families and pairs or groups that want to go on vacation together, but still want to have their private space. Children and pets can play undisrupted and without danger, because the street going to the city is far away.

From here, you can directly reach the most awarded hiking path in Germany, the gorge trail, in addition to 6 other premium trails. The exciting surroundings offer hiking, biking, horse back riding, family fun, relaxation in the nature and countless excursions and shopping possibilities, like for example to the attractive Merzig, Luxembourg, Trier, Metz, to the Saar loop, to the 'garden without limits', to the wolf specialists Werner Freund, to the roman Villa Borg, to the Montclair burg. Water enthusiasts can relax at the Losheim reservoir or at the spa in Merzig. You can also take children to the rail-road museum with the historic train. Visit the cultural highlights like open-air concerts at the lake, operas in circus tents, knight and children festivals. Culinary treats are offered at comfortable restaurants with a French flair.

Other Activities: Hippolini-Holiday - small riding school for children and parents, horse schooling, riding on you own horse, private paddock for horse riding

Golf: There is a recently amplified golf course in Nunkirchen, located about 15 km away from Rissenthal in a beautiful valley.


Ski: If there is snow, you can cross-country ski in Weiskirchen (about 15 km) or you can go on the Petersberg at Braunshausen (30 km) and on the Erbeskopf (about 40 km) for downhill skiing and tobogganing. The hiking trails are especially lovely and romantic when there is snow.
