Property description

Enjoy the charm of a bygone era, rent our romantic cottage home in the quaint winemakers' village of Erden on the Mosel for your next holiday. Built in 1661 this half-timbered house is the oldest house in the village and is set among several registered historic half-timbered houses. It has been updated and appointed with all the comforts of home. Features include: two bedrooms, one with WC, all linens include: full-sized bathroom with shower, towels provided; down comforters and down pillows; small, functional kitchen; (Living/Dining Room) with Flat-Screen TV and Satellite feed (including English language programming); DVD and CD Player; small library, CD collection and family table games; two bicycles for guest use. Free wi-fi is available. All rooms are furnished with antiques.

Self-Catering & Alternatives: A small, but serviceable kitchen is available in Haus Margarete-Erden. It includes all the utensils and small appliances you will need for fixing coffee, tea, or making light meals. You can order fresh rolls, yogurt, milk, jam, etc. which are delivered to the door every morning during your stay. Ask Olaf or Ingrid of the restaurant Zur Ratsschenke to make up your order and fax it off to the bakers in the neighboring village. Enjoy the morning as you sit in the wide sill of the kitchen window with a morning cup of coffee and watch life pass through the 'Engpass' (the Narrows) below. No need to pay until you check out. Don't feel like cooking or want to spend a romantic evening dining in? Ask Zur Ratsschenke for a list of dishes you can order from their menu for private in-home dining. Sit down to a fine meal on porcelain dinnerware and cloth napkins in the comfort of Haus Margarete's dining room. Patio table and chairs (and umbrella) available.

The Middle Mosel: Erden is in the heart of the highly acclaimed Middle Mosel which stretches from Leiwen to just a bit past Erden, at Traben-Trarbach. The finest, most delicate Rieslings are produced in this fabled region. Bicycle from village to village to taste the wines at all the area wineries (check with the Tourist Information office) or just enjoy the scenery and the slow pace. Nearby Bernkastel-Kues is among the most popular spots along the Mosel with its half-timbered houses along winding streets, wine shops, wine museum and restaurants. Bernkastel is also a popular spot to start or end a Mosel boat excursion.

Car: Recommended

Located just 8km from both Bernkastel-Kues and Traben-Trarbach and a 30 minute taxi ride from Frankfurt-Hahn (or one hour by car from Luxembourg Airport), it is in the heart of the Middle Mosel region, Germany's premier wine-country, yet away from the noisy crowds. Erden is a quiet village (pop. ca. 400) of vintners who produce the best and most distinctive Rieslings in the heart of the renowned Middle Mosel region, including Erdner Treppchen. Explore this culturally rich and beautiful region from the convenient location of Erden and start and end each day in the peace and charm of our cozy holiday home. Enjoy bicycling along the Mosel on level, dedicated bike trails to neighboring villages. Summer and fall offer the most activities: wine festivals, music festivals and outdoor activities like walking and bicycling. For a special treat, come spend Christmas on the Mosel in Germany and attend the Weihnachtsmarkt at Bernkastel.

Other Activities: Wine-tasting; Mosel river cruises; castle tours; rowing.
