Our late Gothic house lies in the beautiful wine village of Ellenz just 9 Kilometres from Cochem along the Moselweinstrasse. Dating back to 1550 the house is a protected property known as "denkmal” and is as an important historical building. During its lifetime the house has seen many uses, amongst these include the residence for the Elector of Trier, A Winepress (Weinkelter) and now our home .The house boasts many original features that have been sympathetically preserved whilst creating four comfortably equipped holiday apartments. The vaulted cellar has been transformed into a comfortable residents only wine cellar that is stocked with the best local wines. The plaque, which is included on the rolling display on the right, is prominently displayed on the wall of the house as testament to its rich history. During our recent renovations in the Kerner apartment some watercolour wall decorations were uncovered from circa 1790-1810. These have been confirmed as being French in origin dating back to the time when this part of the Mosel was under French influence. More details and pictures can be seen under the Kerner section in the apartment page.
