About our home

Large 1 bed 2 bath (shower room and bath tub room) apartment in a wine village with vineyard views. Renovated in 2016 to the highest specifications this 1st floor apartment is modern and subtly decorated with a spacious living room, 32" TV, DVD player with lots of English films, dining table for 3 with mood lights, convertible sofa bed and side chair, French theme well equipped kitchen with induction hob and microwave, large walk in shower and lighted vanity with a place to put things (I hate not having a place to put things), PLUS an extra large bathtub in its own room, spacious bedroom with vanity and reading chair. Super comfortable large bed with upgraded mattress, fluffy towels and linens. Steps down to a shared large sunny terrace. WiFi.

Directly across the street is a traditional German bar/restaurant which is always full of laughter, merriment and wine. Within walking distance you can find wine cellars, a beautiful hotel directly around the corner, and many other dining opportunities (steak, pizzeria/italian/traditional/snackbar suitable for all budgets).

There are lots of festivals both in Urzig - the most famous being the Harley and Wein in early August when 1500 Harley Davidson riders party in our little town and tour the Mosel River We also have a brilliant wine festival both here and in the neighbouring towns on the River.

Urzig is located between Traben Trarbach and Bernkastel-Kues and just steps from the house you can take the river cruise in either direction - or stop and feed the swans.

For the adventurous you can hire a canoe, jet ski or even paraglide over the vineyards. Or simply hire a bicycle to ride the miles of flat paths along the River, or climb the hill to visit the Spice Garden - and enjoy the view while you are there.

Of course how about sampling the world famous wines from this region - Urzig has many wine cellars where you can sample the wine and then wander home without worrying about having one too many! We live on a street of wine makers!

If you love steaks, Urzig has the best restaurant with outdoor dining in the summer months. Italian, we have the best with a view to die for from their entire restaurant. Within 15 minutes drive you can be enjoying the health benefits of outdoor thermal baths in Traben-Trarbach (very fun in the Winter), or in the other direction you can enjoy a spa experience in Bernkastel. There is also an outdoor pool 10 minutes away along the river in Krov.

Speaking of Winter, this region is host to many wonderful Christmas markets including an underground one to keep you warm and toasty.

We offer you relaxation at the beginning and the end of each day and there are many choices for you to either be totally lazy in your comfortable accommodations or as active as you wish around our beautiful Mosel Valley.

We are home from home - we ourselves have suffered through many uncomfortable accommodations! My mother-in-law told me "Never stay in a place which is less than you have at home" that is why we've renovated and decorated this apartment just the way we'd like to find it. We have stayed in many disappointing holiday apartments which bear no resemblance to the photos on the internet!!
