It's rare I write reviews but after enjoying a delightful stay I felt compelled to comment.
Firstly us: we are a family of 4 including 2 children boy/girl aged 8/7. We stayed 5 nights in the week leading up to Easter. I am familiar with the region but last visited nearly 20 years ago. We chose Piesport because of its geographic location to the areas we wanted to visit whilst staying (Burg Eltz/Cochem to the north and Trier to the south, not to mention the delightful Bernkastel-Kues 15Km up the road).
We found Piesport to be a charming, family friendly and authentic German wine town. It has lots of character and plenty of places to eat and drink, with the locals all seeming friendly and hospitable. It has easy access to cycle paths that head in both directions along the river and even some designated walking routes. There is a substantial supermarket, open Mon - Sat until 8pm that stocks plenty of fresh and tinned produce as well as an adjacent drink and convenience store. Everything is (as it should be) in German and on the occasions my woeful attempt at speaking the language was inadequate the locals seemed happy to slip into English to overcome confusion.
The apartment is on the edge of town but this only adds to the charm with there being plenty of facilities less than a 10 min walk from the property. Elfriede was extremely friendly upon our arrival and we felt nothing was too much trouble for her. We certainly appreciated the complimentary bottle of local wine and jam as well as the Easter chocolate for the kids at the end of our stay!
The property was very clean with plenty of towels provided. There are 2 good size bedrooms with lots of storage and the main bedroom has a stunning view of the large front garden and river. The main lounge/diner is a decent size equipped with TV and CD player /radio and plenty of plug sockets. The kitchen is small but well equipped. The bathroom is large with a fantastic shower. There is also a designated off road parking slot (for 1 car) directly in front of the main door. The only thing some people with very small children need to be wary of is the steep spiral staircase that leads to apartment from the ground floor. If you are lugging push chairs or other large equipment around regularly on your own it may be a tad tricky.
Overall Piesport is charming and beautiful not to mention a great spot. The apartment is spacious, clean and has great views.
For families or couples alike it is highly recommended!
