Wonderful House in Beautiful Village next to Mosel River
Excellent location close to Trier, Luxembourg, Belgium and France and their many wonderful sights. House has beautiful back patio area, nice kitchen and living room. Great internet service as well as efficient washer/dryer. Upstairs bedrooms accessed via steep spiral stairs which may be awkward for some people. Highly recommended and we would definitely stay there again!
We had tried to book Haus Mosella in previous years without success. So glad we managed to book it this year as we've had a really lovely time
The pictures shown here, really don't do this lovely little house justice. It isn't brand new, its traditionally German and it is totally charming and full of character but with every modern comfort you can possibly think of. The beds are comfy, the kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of utensils and crockery. We are a family of 4 with two teenaged boys and we had plenty of space, we particularly enjoyed the little courtyard garden. We had a very comfortable 2 weeks, but it would be more than fine for a longer stay - and we might well do this in the future. We didn't find very much in Riol, there are a couple of shops and lots of wine sellers but a couple of bars seemed to have closed - perhaps because of the big Trialago resort down the road. However, it is a very pretty village with lots and lots of really good walks direct from the house. At the Trialago, you can swim or do watersports on the lake, there is a Rodelbahn and a Segway ride. We didn't use the hotel restaurant, but we used the Waldsee Pizza restaurant a lot and it was lovely. There is a freibad in Shweich but we used one in Kordel, the Kylltalbad which we thought was well worth a few minutes extra drive. Riol is very near the A1 Autobahn so is fabulous for touring the area which we did a lot of. We visited Trier, Luxembourg City, Saarburg, Bernkastel, Piesporter and Zell and would recommend any of them for a day out. We also caught the train at Schweich and used the Rheinland Pfaltz ticket to go to Koblenz returning with a stop off at Cochem. We had a fabulous time and really didn't want to come home!
Great stay in Riol
We spent 12 good nights in this house in Riol. The house is very good value, well stocked, clean and with good facilities. When we arrived, Beatrix was there to greet us and show us around the house and there was a chilled bottle of local white wine in the fridge! Riol was quite sleepy but had a shop that opened just in the morning and a restaurant (that we didn't get round to trying).
There is a good size secure shed in the nearby garden for storage of cycles, we hired some from a nearby village (Longuich) for 9 Euros a day per bike. We couldn't get helmets so if you are thinking of hiring bikes, it would be worth bringing your own if you have them. The house is quite close to the river and there is a cycle path along the river in both directions. However towards Trier the cycle path soon leaves the river side and is not so nice but still mostly a separate path. Down river the path follows the river more closely and so is a bit nicer.
Very nearby (10 min walk) is a hotel that had a rodelbahn (bit like a cross between a roller coaster and a tobogan run), a cable water skiing/wake boarding lake and a swimming lake with beach and very large inflatables for the kids to play on. The resort is still a work in progress and there was some landscaping going on so was not so pretty but in a few years I expect the trees will have grown and it will look great. All these were quite a reasonable cost.
The Roman remains in Trier are worth a visit and there are some nice towns and villages down the river. Luxembourg city is 40 mins drive away and has good park and ride and is also worth a visit.
The trip from Calais took about 4.5 hours and is mostly motorway with no tolls. Only the last few miles is non motorway. The driving locally was quite relaxed (much less manic than Italy last year!)
Eating out was quite reasonable in various restaurants at about 50 Euros for 4 people. Ice cream cones were very cheap at 80 cents for one scoop of very nice icecream or sorbet.
There is a 'Aldi' like supermarket at nearby Longuich called Norma, which was well stocked and good value and had a good bakery and cafe attached. However two of the supermarkets we tried did not take credit cards, including our Thomas Cook Eurocash Mastercard so we ended up using a lot of cash, but there was a bank near with an ATM.
Overall we can thoroughly recommend this area and this property.
Very Spacious and Well Located
We stayed in this home for 1 week and found it to ideally located for exploring the Mosel Valley. It was well equipped, clean and well maintained.
The house is located in a small village and on a very quiet street.
We looked forward to returning to our "home" at the end of a busy day.
We would definitely recommend this property to out friends.
one month in Riol
We stayed the whole of August in this house for our annual holiday. It was perfect for all our needs and was a great base for us in one of the most beautiful parts of Germany. Without doubt we choose well. The house was absolutely spotless and clean and all the facilities we required were found to be there. The whole experience was one of delight in particular the location and accesss to the autobann for visits. We had indeed a wonderful time and experience and met some very lovely people in and around the house making German friends that we are in contact with. Do not hesitate booking this house as activities attractions and restaurants in and around this area have most holiday requirments in abundance. For us it was perfect. We loved the time we spent there. Beatrix was most welcoming and attentive to all our needs. Without doubt one of the most enjoyable holidays we have spent and given we are well travelled that it quite a statement. Sadly the whole of August date wise is not available to us for 2010 otherwise the shares in the German wines would have been greatly increased once again.
Das Ferienhaus Mosella ist zu 100% empfehlenswert. Es übertraf unsere Erwartungen bei weitem.
Es ist sehr sauber, sehr schön eingerichtet und besitzt zudem eine große Terrasse. Die Küche war bei uns der Dreh- und Angelpunkt.
Das Ferienhaus liegt direkt am Triolago, welcher in wärmeren Zeiten auf jeden Fall gut besucht sein wird. Dort gibt es unter anderem eine Wakeboardanlage und auch schwimmende Häuser.
Es ist bis nach Trier gerade mal 12-15 Minuten entfernt. Kulturell ist Trier absolut Sehenswert, und für alle, die gerne Shoppen gehen ist es auch eine Reise wert.
Wir werden gerne wieder kommen.
