The photos are very accurate, the furniture most comfortable, and the appliances were easy to use despite language limitations. The weather was perfect for enjoying evening meals on the patio and parking right on the property was a bonus for us. My husband and I really appreciated the support that the owners gave us. We were not familiar with the local area and they had many recommendations for sightseeing, dining and even wine tasting. We wish we had more time here and will definitely return. We need more time to try all the great suggestions that we did not have time for this holiday. Of course we would recommend this unit to friends who are considering staying around this area. We found the time here very good value for money and wish to thank the family for their help. Sincerely, S. Beaumont U.K.

The house was spacious and extremely well equipped and yet delightfully homely. We particularly liked the old photos of the house going back over the last century. We had everything we could possibly want for a family holiday. We loved watching the boats sailing past the house and could hardly believe how quiet it was. The house is a great starting point for visiting the Saarland, Luxembourg and France and the children particularly enjoyed the outdoor pool complex in Mettlach, especially the diving boards!
