If you want utter peace and quiet, beautiful night skies in a lovely house Bellana is fantastic. We are a couple with teenaged boys and we found the house a beautiful place to return to each day, with every comfort you could need. (The beds were really comfy!) There is just one Gasthof in the village,"Zur Linde" but we were made very welcome there and the chicken was delicious! There is plenty to do in the area, Trier and Saarbug are both within easy reach. We found lovely walks around the Saar loop and to the Ruine Montclair to name a couple. Mettlach with its Villeroy and Boch outlets is worth a visit. For quiet, sunny days there is the lake at Losheim but we also loved the beautiful open air pool at Mettlach. We all thought the people of Saarland were some of the friendliest and nicest people we have ever met and made our holiday all the more special! One thing I would say that some understanding of German is helpful as all instructions in the house are in German only.
