Oberemmel, wine country house, Germany!

Let me bring you back to our trip to Germany. Of course  , I have been to Germany and so has my family on several trips but this time we decided to rent a house in wine country and see the smaller towns of the Saar region of Germany. It was awesome, and we sure will be back.

We chose an apartment in the winemaker’s house in the town of Konz-Oberemmel where we rented for two weeks as our base; the town is lovely, and the stay was good with excellent quality/price ratio. This is the town page on the tourist office, http://www.saar-obermosel.de/en/citiesandcommunities/konz-oberemmel.html

The rental at Willems & Hofmann was here , Willems & Hofmann wine country house rental

It was in the 2nd floor of the building,  it had an entry stair a bit tight, then kitchenette, dining/living room combine with two windows in the attic, two bedrooms with two twins beds on each and the sofa bed in the living room; coffeemaker, microwave,medium size fridge, closets, the bathroom with shower and window;cable TV with some English stations for news, plus French, Spanish,Portuguese,etc. no telephone and no wifi/internet. The rent was discounted as we rented two weeks so it will change according to your stay and season. The family daughter and winemaker speaks English, and it is the daughter who handles the initial rental by email. The owner mother does not speak English.

The town has one grocery store and one bakery, that is it, 1700 inhabitants, one spoked English and two French, the rest German and our few words. The reception in town was very friendly, and all folks try to help us; we did attack that grocery store Edeka-Krumm. More in German here:Edeka Krumm grocery store in Oberemmel

We were lucky to arrive at the time of the Wine Festival in town, with live music until the wee hours, and plenty of white/red local wines and bitburg beers as well as sausages of all types and friendly service. The town is full of private wineries so on every street there is one to taste lol! And of course, in the wine festival there were all!!! The town page is here in German but you can see the festival announcement weinfestival/ The site I found it now in German is here: Wine Festival in Oberemmel
