About Dunja Stefan-Ojinika

We are a mixed german-african family. You can always feel free to contact us in English. In order to offer you the most comfortable stay possible, we will always support you whenever you have questions or if you want to plan a trip.

Dunja Stefan-Ojinika purchased this house in 1999

Why Dunja Stefan-Ojinika chose Erden

Our home “town” is located at the Central Moselle („Mittelmosel“). Erden is a traditional wine growing village that offers a number of possibilities for tourists.

Its about 440 inhabitants are always ready to have a small talk in the streets. They underline the village centre's cosy atmosphere of the narrow cobblestoned streets in between the timbered houses.

In 1999 I took over my parental home while already 4 generations had lived.

Our house lies in the middle of the local core and only few minutes from the Moselle promenade.

What makes this house unique

From a bedroom you have a marvellous look at the vineyards.

Our house offers you a lot of space whether for young or old.

Even for babies or toddlers we are well furnished.

In the whole house you find antiques with modern piece of furniture mixed.

Besides there is a sheltered courtyard with natural stone plaster floor, here you can relax with a bottle of moselle wine at any time of the day or weather.

A grill is also available to you of course!

Clean, family space with plenty of room. Beautiful countryside and and activities

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly, ready to help if we needed it. The house was clean and an easy place to be as a family. There were plenty of places to eat out especially the restaurant opposite who will bring the food to you. The kitchen was well equiped if you want to cook. Supermarket is in the next town but there is a fruit shop tucked away in the village with home grown vegetables. Check opening times.

Plenty of bike riding if you are active and walking tracks.

A very enjoyable holiday.

Vacation with family and friends

The house is in the middle of village Erden. We stayed with family and friends. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. House was clean and Dunja helped when ever needed. Bike rental is mostly recommended. There are lot of bike roads around and they are very well marked.

Just what you need !

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful old house full of character situated in Erden. Perfect as a base to explore the Mosel region. The house is spotlessly clean and is supplied with everything you could need whilst self catering! The owners really have thought of everything ! Quiet location ensures a restful sleep whilst there are a few restaurants in town should you not wish to cook. The owners are very friendly, obliging and will assist you with any queries relating to day trips and sights to see. Thanks to Dunja and Dona for making our stay so pleasant and easy !! Really appreciate it! The Colwells

A real gem of a holiday home.... Simply put: Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the first we found when searching through nearly 20+ properties and our initial instincts were that this home offered the best accommodation options for our group of 3 adults, 2 teenagers and 8 year old with special needs. Our instinct were not wrong.

The house is situated in a quiet village on the banks of the Mosel river on the corner of two small streets. Directly opposite is a bar/restaurant where the owner, Ingrid, and staff were welcoming and can speak English. Access to the house can be from street level at the front or up steps via a small covered courtyard at the back.

Parking is not an issue as there is a large space next to the courtyard which has a table and chairs for you to enjoy meals outside with shelter from the elements. The courtyard also offers the opportunity to enjoy the barbeque available.

We arrived in mid-August and the temperature outdoors was never less than 25°C but inside the house remained cool due to the solid construction and thick walls. and there is plenty of space for everyone to escape for some personal space if desired. The decor is beautiful and has a modern feel despite the house being over 200 years old.

The owners, Dunja and Dona are warm and friendly and also live in the village so are on hand for help if needed. We arrived late on the Saturday so were given the key by Ingrid from the bar. Dunja and Dona popped in on the Monday to welcome us in person and gave some welcome ideas on what to see to make the most of our week there. They are a lovely family with two young boys and after 5 minutes you feel like you have always known them.

We would definitely look to return but one week is not enough. A minimum of two weeks is needed to enjoy the area but this house is a perfect base to have.

We would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a peaceful retreat.

Thank you Dunja and Dona for helping us to enjoy our holiday.

The Parry Family
