About the property


Enjoy the full beauty of the Mosel river from direct views out of all front windows and balcony. Our Jewel of the Mosel townhouse is spread across 5 floors, giving commanding views from all levels. It is an ideal base for families and groups with the wide selection of sleeping arrangements which it offers. Everyone can come together in the very large kitchen/dining room or 'do their own thing' on other floors of the house. Be aware there are lots of stairs though - making the house exciting for children to explore!

Relax and sit watching the barges, river cruise ships and pleasure boats passing your windows and balcony on the Mosel. Step outside and board one of these for a trip to nearby Cochem or Traben Trabach. Sit outside under grape vines on the promenade or wander the streets of the town - all criss crossed by vines. Stroll up into the vineyards behind the house for magnificent views, or for the more energetic take well marked Nordic walking routes. There are even dog walks marked out by paw prints, and we are very pet friendly!

Enjoy sampling the famous wines from the local vineyards - you are sure to take home some bottles of the famous Zeller Schwarze Katz!

The house is well equipped and furnished so even on a rainy day you would be happy indoors (if you had not chosen to explore the exciting museums of Roman Trier!)

The property comprises of 250 sq metres of living space!

The most amazing house and place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was very aptly named, a real Jewel with lots of thought given to have everything needed for a perfect holiday. There were 9 of us and Barbara, the owner, generously let us have free use of the other separate rental within the property so we had masses of space. Waking up in the morning to a view of the Mosel was incredible and meant you never wanted a long lie in! The kitchen was very well equipped with everything included you would need. A real party kitchen, overlooking the cruisers that moored from time to time. Magical! The town itself is incredible and what you couldn’t get there ( very little to be fair, you could get from a short drive or bus ride to the huge hyper market Globus, on the other side of the river, which was my 16 year old sons favourite visit! We took boat trips, hired cycles and did a group trip to Traben Trabach, visited the outdoor pool in Krov , and ate out in fab places in the town. I would definitely return in a heartbeat to this wonderful location and fabulous house. The owner, Barbara, could not have been more helpful and efficient in all her communications. Incredible start to a school holiday. Felt very rested. Can not recommend highly enough!

A really special house with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

This is a really well equipped house, with really good sized bedrooms. The main kitchen dining room is fabulous - beautiful views directly on to the river, plenty of room for us all to sit and eat. Particularly like the built in, island top grill. The large balcony was lovely for sitting out on and watching the barges and the boats go by. We received a friendly welcome and there's lots of information provided about the local area. The town of Zell itself is very pretty, with lots of lovely walks and a good selection of restaurants. We were also able to visit nearby Brenkastel-Kues, Cochem, Koblenz and Trier, so an ideal touring base. There are lots of good shops on the top of the hill on the opposite side of the river, and of course most important of all, the local Zell Schwartze Katze wine is delicious!

Ideal location for exploring the Mosel

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic welcome by Frau Hammer who could not have been more informative or friendly. The appartment is almost in the centre of the Mosel and therefore excellently situated for exploring. Numerous walks around the hills with exquisite views of the area. Will definitely go back.

Schöne Ferienwohnung mit tollem Blick!

  • 4 of 5

Der Empfang des Hausverwalters am Anreisetag war sehr freundlich! Wir bekamen direkt Tipps für gute Restaurants und Weinproben. Er war stets erreichbar für weitere Fragen. Die Wohnung an sich ist eher rustikal ausgestattet und hat im oberen Geschoss einen tollen Blick auf die Mosel. Wir haben uns auch mit zwei größeren Hunden willkommen und gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Der einzige Nachteil ist nur, dass das Haus in dem sich mehrere Ferienwohnung befinden, relativ hellhörig ist. Sollten wir dem schönen Örtchen Zell einen weiteren Besuch ohne Hochwasser abstatten, werden wir gerne wieder diese Wohnung wählen.
