It’s a beautiful 15 minute walk along the Mosel river into the center of Cochem for restaurants and shops, plus there is a good food market right next door and a bakery around the corner from the house. The kitchen has every appliance you need, the house is clean, comfortable, and charming. Good high speed WiFi. Two parking spaces in front of the house. My husband and I stayed here for a week and would definitely stay here again. Ivanna was friendly, helpful, and responded quickly to any questions.
This house is truly a hidden jewel, as most Germans we spoke to had never heard of the village of Zell. As the home was literally right next to the town fountain, we were steps from bakeries, pizzerias, an award-winning metzgerei (butcher shop), ice cream shop and even a playground. Many summer hikers passed us on various routes through the countryside, and two cruise docks were visible from our window.
The layout with multiple-sized ooms on multiple floors was perfect for our group of 4 families. The teenagers had their own floor, small children were down the hall from their parents, and the layout with two kitchens allowed for casual snacking and TV watching while the main meals were being prepared.
The owner was very easy to communicate with (spoke English), and the property manager (English/German) even offered to arrange a wine tasting cruise for us on his personal yacht.
Free nearby parking is better than advertised, and a very modern shopping plaza with multiple grocery stores is only 10 minutes drive across the river. On your drive over from Frankfurt, make sure you visit the Geierlay suspension bridge; the walk there is worth it!
After our stay, we wished we would have booked this lodging for a week! A memorable family reunion highlighted by an incredible dwelling place!
