Lovely and relaxing getaway house in small German town.

5 of 5
We had a super stay in Villa Prüm, enjoying the outdoor hot tub and the sauna. The house was very clean, with everything we needed and is as described (although the detailed paperwork that we had to fill out was in German, so took a bit of translating - thank goodness for Google). We used the house as a base to visit the Christmas markets in Cologne, which was easy to reach by car in just over an hour. We also visited Trier, Bitburg and Luxembourg which are all within an hour's journey from Prüm. This would also be a lovely property to visit in the summer, as the house has a large back garden and BBQ and there is a plenty of countryside surrounding the town which would be nice to explore.
