This is a very cosy appartment in a truly atmospheric building. It was clean and tidy, had all the basics we needed, and easily accommodated three of us. It goes without saying that staying in such a historical building is an experience in itself. It is located in a very peaceful and quiet village where you can really appreciate the local setting, including the wine cellar next door. Maria was very welcoming, communication was swift and easy. We really enjoyed our stay in Maria's place. Thank you!

Beautiful antient acommodation,cosy room with everything we needed for our stay. Excellent wine in the appartment, perfect location for exploring the area. Maria was great and very helpful, gave us lot if good tips. We can recommend!

We had an amazing weekend at the Kerner Apartment. Staying in a beautiful historical building made it even more special. The apartment is spacious, nice and clean en the bed was very, very good! Maria made us feel home from the beginning with a personal letter at arrival, and some beautiful wines available... The building is surrounded by the typical beautiful green nature from the Mosel area: wine fields everywhere the possibility to take a boattrip and the villages of Ellenz, Polterdorf and Beilsten all in walking distance. In the morning you can also walk to a nice bakery for a good German breakfast... A couple of things as advice: - Take cash money, there is no possibilty to pay with card and taking cash in the villages - Visit the villages during the wine festivals, great fun! - Next to the apartment is a great hidden 'wine keller'. Nice people and great wine! Maria, thanks for the great weekend!

Hello I am Maria

Together with my Husband Michael we re-located to the traditional wine producing village of Ellenz on the Moselle in February 2010.

We are both originally from London England, however my family are originally from the Republic of Ireland and re located to London in the late 1950s and Michael has a German mother originally from Leipzig in Saxony and his Father from London.
We saw and fell in love with this 500 year old listed building in the centre of the village and decided to make it our home. The property was formerly owned by the Electorate of Trier and built in 1531, our aim is to restore the building to as near as its original condition as possible, but we remember we are only custodians of this piece of local German history, so while we do this, we would like to welcome you and to offer our self catering accommodation, we manage the property ourselves and like to be on hand throughout your stay and personally greet all our guests on arrival.
So come and stay and enjoy this wonderful part of Germany and join us for a glass or two of fine Moselle Wine.
