Great location

4 of 5
Well equipped, well located and great restaurant recommendations from the owners. Linz is a lovely town and ideal base for discovering the Rhine between Köln and Koblenz.

The perfect countryside hideaway, close to the city yet tranquil and peaceful.

We had a fantastic 3 day stay in Urbar, and can highly recommend this charming holiday apartment. Situated up a short flight of stairs, the apartment has a beautiful view across the gardens and over the hills on the other side of the small valley. Our two children had a great time exploring the gardens and playing outside the apartment - and we didn’t need to worry about cars and traffic, which was perfect. The apartment was the perfect size for our stay, and we would certainly consider staying longer in the future. The small kitchen, dining area with doors opening to the balcony and living area were spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and very homely. The upstairs bedroom was really spacious, we slept perfectly every night! The downstairs bedroom was perfect for the children, and the loved the enormous double bed and old rustic wardrobes. The Koblenz Viewpoint, park area and cable car down to Koblenz’s Old Town were just 10 minutes away by car. Local shops made grocery shopping super easy. Frau Zimmermann and Herr Strobach were very welcoming, spoke very good English, were super helpful and charming hosts. We’ll definitely return to Urbar if we’re in this part of Germany again (which is very likely).
