Schöne Ferien!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren in Haus Karin und es hat uns richtig gut gefallen. Das Haus war gut beschrieben, sauber und ordentlich. Gefehlt hat eine große Couch wo alle zusammen hätten sitzen können, aber das fiel nicht weiter ins Gewicht, wir waren viel unterwegs und im großen Wintergarten kann man fabelhaft zusammen sitzen.Die Familie Faust ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit,das Freizeitangebot auf dem Hof ( reiten, grillen, spielen, Badeteich, am Bauernhofleben teilnehmen,...) gut gelungen und sehr liebevoll gestaltet.

Ein rundum gelungener Aufenthalt!

Wir wären gerne länger geblieben und kommen bestimmt wieder!

Hortausflug 2010

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mal wieder mit unserer Hortgruppe in der Heuherberge der Familie Faust.

Nicht nur das für unsere lieben Kleinen bestens gesorgt wurde, wir selbst fühlten uns wie im Urlaub. Der sehr liebevoll eingerichtete Wintergarten sucht seinesgleichen und für die Kinder ist es dort, wegen der örtlichen Gegebenheiten (Tiere, Spielplatz, Bach, Spielscheune.....) und der liebevollen und klaren Art ein Traumurlaub gewesen. Die gesammte Atmosphäre dort schwang auf unsere Kinder über, ein solch harmonisches und rücksichtsvolles Miteinander gab es selten. Danke liebe Familie Faust, wir empfehlen Euch gern weiter

(die ein wenig ein schlechtes Gewissen haben, die Tage als Arbeitszeit zu verbuchen)

Im Rahmen einer Feier haben wir zwei idyllische Tage und Nächte bei Familie Faust verbracht. Es war alles ausgezeichnet. Die Zimmer sind gemütlich und mit allem ausgestattet was das Herz begehrt und das Fest war rundum gelungen, dank des gesamten Einsatzes der Familie. Die Kinder waren selig dank der Zielgen, Schafe, Esel, Pferde etc. und der Spielplatz hinter dem Hof hat auch immer wieder gelockt! Also, dieses Örtchen ist wirklich nur zu empfehlen. Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis stimmt ebenso und Kinder sind, wie oben bereits angedeutet, erwünscht!! Wo hat man das sonst noch...

Die Tiere konnten hautnah und jederzeit erlebt werden. Sogar ein Ausflug mit dem Planwagen wurde spontan eingeschoben. Das Gästehaus war sauber und im einwandfreiem Zustand.

Vacation on a farm on the southern slope of Hunsrück on the German Edelsteinstraße - here is Weiden, surrounded by meadows and fields in a large forest area. The small city and its church were already recognized as Weyden in 1478. Enjoy the diverse nature as a hiker, biker or discover the low mountain range scenery and its many attractions with a horse. 'Sironaweg' connects the 2000 year history with the present and runs very close to Weiden. In 'Marienstollen', you can search for silver and galena or purchase cut gemstones from the region. Weiden is a meeting place for those seeking tranquility and world travelers. You can arrive via: car, train (closest train station is IdarOberstein w/direct bus connection through Weiden towards the airport). With the flight connections from Querbeet Europa, you can get to the airport Frankfurt-Hahn in a 20 minute drive. Bus connections from ORN from Hahn to Idar OBerstein.

Other Activities: HIking on 'Sironaweg' or 'Saar Hunsrücksteig', searching for minerals, jogging, cross country skiing, luging, riding handcars

Golf: The golf club 'Edelstein Hunsrück' in Kirschweilier (8 km) has a 9 hole golf course and club house and invites you to partake in numerous activities. Here beginners can practice at the 3 hole course.

A second golf course (9 holes) is located by the Hahn airfield.

Ski: If you are looking for an accommodation for your family celebration during Christmas, you can use the guest house and Karins house to enjoy your Christmas festivities together with your grandparents and siblings. A decorated tree will be waiting for you or would you like to decorate it yourself? Fun in the snow with temperatures under 0C, the new snow machines make this possible. On Erbeskopf by Deuselbach (20 km, two 800m descents, practice slope, cable lift, flood lit, luge track, ski rental / school, slope lodges). As soon as there is snow in Hunsrück, you can discover numerous slopes in the fairytale like high forest or you can put your alpine skills to the test on Idarkopf and Erbeskopf. If you do not like to ski, hikes will leave you with everlasting impressions that you will take back home.
