Riverside in a prime position, our delightful apartment house dates from the 1920s and had a complete rebuild in the mid 1990s. Our house is one of the prettiest on the Zell waterfront, featuring flower boxes, slate roof and traditional timber work in the gabled façade. There is a patio adjacent the entry and once inside, a marble staircase leads upstairs.
The house has 5 bright apartments over the 4 floors with 4 presently available for short-term (and long stay) holiday rentals. Décor is white tiled floors, rendered walls and pine ceilings. Furniture is of good quality with plenty of timber.
Studio and both one bedroom River View apartments are of 3+ star standard while the 2 bedroom Balcony apartment is of 4 star standard. All overlook the Mosel.
Facilities include central heating, digital satellite TV, DVD, radio, wifi internet, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. Bedding, towels and kitchen linen are provided. Servicing is available weekly at extra charge.
Zell on the Mosel River is a vibrant friendly 'weinstadt' in the midst of Germany's Rhineland - perfect for both short or long stay vacations. Midway along the scenic Mosel between the cities of Trier and Koblenz, Zell is an ideal base in the heart of Europe with much to see locally, regionally - and to points across all Europe thanks to the local Hahn Airport, a major Ryanair hub.
1. Short Stays: Fly into Hahn Airport and catch the 750 shuttle bus signed Zell-Bullay, or take the train to Bullay and catch the local bus (or cab) - or drive to Zell to enjoy our wonderful apartments, the river, the wines and the region. Bring your hiking shoes. Bikes and canoes can be hired. Many more attractions are within a day's touring and the nearby Zellerland regional tourism office is ready to assist in many languages.
Day coach tours offered from Zell from May to October include the local region, Trier, Koblenz, Rhine Gorges, Luxembourg and Paris. Prices are very reasonable.
To explore by bus and rail, you can use two regional networks: the VRM centred on Koblenz including the Rhine Gorges (and Hahn Airport); just to the west the VRT is centred on Trier and extending to Saarburg and the borders of Luxembourg and France. Day tickets are good, especially for groups up to 5 and include the airport bus, ideal if you have a late flight home and spend the last day exploring.
2. Long Stays: For Aussies, NZders, Americans and others from afar with plans to live in and/or explore Europe - our apartments make the ideal base. Nearby Hahn Airport offers flights to 50+ destinations across Europe, mostly on Ryanair. The shuttle bus 750 Hahn Flughafen to Zell - Bullay runs all week, 9 x a day, every 2 hours. Rail is attractive to travel all over Germany and beyond with excellent special fares. Our rates are negotiable for stays over 1 month.
'We really enjoyed our stay at Zell. It was our first time to visit the Mosel. The house was very nice and clean, with a beautiful view. It was really a pity we could not stay longer.'

'Just a note to say how we enjoyed Zell. The apartment was lovely and Elsbeth so kind and helpful. I have never been to Germany but found the area so pretty and the people were very friendly. I wish we had booked for longer!'
