Toller Alternativurlaub zum Seele baumeln lassen

  • 5 of 5

In Karins Haus, unser Haus für 8 Kinder und mich, der Heilpädagogin, haben wir das perfekte Feriendomizil gefunden, in dem wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt haben. Wenn man weiß, wie schwierig es ist, für eine Kindergruppe ein geeignetes Haus zu finden, so findet man im Ferienhof Faust genau das Richtige. Genug Platz, gemütliche Einrichtung, Jede Möglichkeit zum Spielen - bei schönem Wetter draußen am Teich und den Wiesen und bei schlechtem Wetter im riesigen Wintergarten mit Antiquitäten und Pflanzen wunderschön eingerichtet. Gepflegte Tiere, vom Schaf bis zum Pferd, die sich streicheln lassen und zutraulich sind machten den Kindern genauso viel Freude wie die Planwagenfahrten, die vom Ferienhof mit ihnen gemacht wurden. Weitere Attraktionen waren nicht nur für die Kinder das Reiten mit Begleitung, der Grillabend und der Superbrunch am Sonntagmorgen. So viele Ideen und Angebote haben wir woanders noch nicht erlebt, dafür ein herzliches Dankeschön an den Ferienhof. Die Kinder fragen längst nach dem nächsten Mal und so haben wir gerade eben wieder Karins Haus reserviert für nächstes Jahr.

Glückliche Kinder im Freizeitabenteuer

  • 5 of 5

Neun Kinder und Jugendliche mit leuchtenden Augen über die vielen vielen Spielmöglichkeiten und Tiere haben sich rundum wohlgefühlt. Esel, Ponys, Schafe, Ziegen und Kühe, die alle frei herumlaufen und die man streicheln darf, wo gibt es noch so etwas. Die Töchter des Hauses halfen beim Reiten und die Planwagenfahrt durfte nicht fehlen. Bis heute erzählen die jungen Teilnehmer noch von diesem Urlaub und fragen, wann es wieder zum Haus Karin geht (im Oktober).

Das Haus Karin war bestens geeignet für unsere Gruppe, es hat an nichts gefehlt. Der riesige Wintergarten, ideenreich ausgestattet, lässt eine Stimmung wie in der Toskana aufkommen, einfach toll.

Und die Abende am Lagerfeuer waren so romantisch, dass es für uns keine bessere Adresse geben wird.

Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Danke an die Vermieter!

Wir kommen gerne wieder

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 16 Personen (10 Erwachsene, 6 Kinder) für ein verlängertes Wochenende am 1. Mai zu Gast. Angemietet hatten wir Karins Haus und die alte Getreide-Mühle.

Karins Haus ist wirklich gut ausgestattet, mit viel Platz im Wohn-/Esszimmer für große Gruppen. Alles sehr sauber und in gutem Zustand.

Die Mühle ist ein echtes historisches Denkmal, liebevoll restauriert und ausgestattet, leider nur ein Bad, das einzige Manko.

Klasse sind die großen Wiesen und der Spielplatz, die Streicheltiere und der Wintergarten, für jedes Wetter gibt es schöne Aufenthaltsorte, gerade für größere Gruppen. Einige Kinder verbrachten auch eine Nacht im Heuhotel, mal ein ganz anderes Erlebnis.

Die Wirts-Familie war sehr herzlich und immer hilfsbereit, man fühlt sich gleich wie zu Hause! Vielen Dank noch einmal dafür!

In der Umgebung gibt es vor allem gute Wandermöglichkeiten, mit reizvoller Landschaft und spannenden Klettermöglichkeiten für Kinder. Auch nach Fossilien im Schiefer suchen war möglich. Mit dem Auto erreicht man in wenigen Minuten einige abwechslungsreiche Ausflugsorte, keine Riesenattraktionen, aber genau das richtige um ein paar Stunden im Freien zu sein, z. B. Burgruinen erkunden oder einen alten Stollen besichtigen.

Wir haben auch einen Grillabend mit Schwenkbraten mitgemacht, das Essen war sehr gut und reichlich, wer gerne Fleisch oder Fisch isst, wird sicher zufrieden sein.

Von uns Allen, auch den Kindern, eine klare Empfehlung für einen ländlichen Urlaub auf einem Ferienbauernhof. Wir planen schon für nächstes Jahr ein neues langes Wochenende.

Vacation on a farm on the southern slope of Hunsrück on the German Edelsteinstraße - here is Weiden, surrounded by meadows and fields in a large forest area. The small city and its church were already recognized as Weyden in 1478. Enjoy the diverse nature as a hiker, biker or discover the low mountain range scenery and its many attractions with a horse. 'Sironaweg' connects the 2000 year history with the present and runs very close to Weiden. In 'Marienstollen', you can search for silver and galena or purchase cut gemstones from the region. Weiden is a meeting place for those seeking tranquility and world travelers. You can arrive via: car, train (closest train station is IdarOberstein w/direct bus connection through Weiden towards the airport). With the flight connections from Querbeet Europa, you can get to the airport Frankfurt-Hahn in a 20 minute drive. Bus connections from ORN from Hahn to Idar OBerstein.

Other Activities: HIking on 'Sironaweg' or 'Saar Hunsrücksteig', searching for minerals, jogging, cross country skiing, luging, riding handcars

Golf: The golf club 'Edelstein Hunsrück' in Kirschweilier (8 km) has a 9 hole golf course and club house and invites you to partake in numerous activities. Here beginners can practice at the 3 hole course.

A second golf course (9 holes) is located by the Hahn airfield.

Ski: If you are looking for an accommodation for your family celebration during Christmas, you can use the guest house and Karins house to enjoy your Christmas festivities together with your grandparents and siblings. A decorated tree will be waiting for you or would you like to decorate it yourself? Fun in the snow with temperatures under 0C, the new snow machines make this possible. On Erbeskopf by Deuselbach (20 km, two 800m descents, practice slope, cable lift, flood lit, luge track, ski rental / school, slope lodges). As soon as there is snow in Hunsrück, you can discover numerous slopes in the fairytale like high forest or you can put your alpine skills to the test on Idarkopf and Erbeskopf. If you do not like to ski, hikes will leave you with everlasting impressions that you will take back home.
