Are you interested in spending your holydays in Germany near the Romantic River Rhine with its fortresses castles and its charming wine-towns? We live 10 minutes by car from the river Rhine in a very fine small village.
We are very interested in exchanging homes with you for some time in 2022/23. We are a couple of pensioners Hans (69, formerly controller). Gabi (69, formerly teacher), so we can make an exchange not only in summertime but in spring and automn too. We are non-smokers. If there should be a problem you can make a call with one of our two sons Daniel (38) and Konstantin (33). Daniel lives with his family about 70 km away (near Frankfurt) and Konstantin about 40 km (Mainz)and surely will be of help.
Here some information about our house. It contains:
• A large kitchen with all usual facilities (electric cooker, refrigerator, dish-washer, microwave...) and dining-table. From the kitchen you can reach the terrace and the garden.
• Living room with TV-set, hi-fi, a three-piece suit and a dining area. There is a French window to the balcony.
• two bedrooms; one has a double bed, the second has a queen-size bed,
• PC, w-lan …
• Two bathrooms. One with shower, bath and toilet, the other with shower and toilet.
• two studies
One of our two studies contains a bed settee for two visitors. The house has a central heating. There is also a garage for two cars. A washing machine and clothes dryer are in the cellar. Next to the house is a garden with terrace and lawn. On the terrace we have garden furniture. You may use also our bikes.
Eckenroth, a very small village in the countryside, has a population of about only 250. We live very quietly, with only very few road traffic. Our country is very green; there are forests where you can walk, ride by bike or horse. About 1 km by foot from our home you may play tennis, golf or go swimming (6 km by car). The motorway between Mainz and Köln (Cologne) is only 5 minutes away (5 km).
Around us are lots of interesting things to see. 10 minutes by car you can visit the Romantic Middle Rhine, with the "Loreley Valley", the fortresses castles and lovely little towns, where many people make holidays. You can make trips on the other side of the river Rhine to the cultural scene of the Rheingau, where you may enjoy one of the best German white wines.
30 minutes by car you can reach Mainz (famous 1 000 year old cathedral) and Wiesbaden, where you can visit theatres, concerts and museums; but they also offer good shopping facilities. In 50 minutes you can travel to the city of Frankfurt on the Main with the Rhein-Main-Airport, St. Paul`s Church, Senckenberg Natural History Museum, Botanic Gardens, Zoo...
Köln (Cologne) (Gothic Cathedral, Old Town Centre, Romanesque churches...) is a 70 -80 minutes ‘drive to the north and Trier - Germany`s oldest town (Trier existed 1300 years before Rome) with roman and medieval monuments 80 minutes` drive to the west.
Other places of interest are Heidelberg (70 minutes) with the castle and Schwetzingens` castle park or nice small towns in the nearer surrounding like Bad Kreuznach, Bingen, Rüdesheim, Worms…
We like hiking. There are a lot of hiking trails:
• Hunsrück-Nahe in our immediate surrounding
• Romantic Middle Rhine (Ölbergsteig in Oberwesel with a marvelous view to the Loreley …)
• Hunsrück-Mosel (40 minutes by car, but a very nice valley with lovely trails and a terrific view. We like it very much)
• Eifel (geological interesting with his volcanic past)
• Rheinhessen …
During childhood of our suns we often exchanged our home with other families. We spent holidays in Great Britain (Dartmouth), Canada (Quebec, British Columbia), Denmark, France (Toulouse and Bordeaux), Southern and Northern California, Nor-way, New Hampshire and each time it was for our guests and us a great success. We hope you will be interested in spending some time in Eckenroth. We will send you more information and pictures if you wish. We are looking forward to hear from you soon.
