Vacation homes, landlord 2008 - 3rd place, child/animal friendly, hiking, riding - Vacation home 1

Bedrooms 2
Space 914 sq. ft.
Property type chateau / country house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights



Vacation home 1

The vacation homes are all furnished the same. They are located offset from each other so that the guests do not disrupt each other. Every house has its own sunny garden area and is separated optically from the others through a plant-fence by the entrance. The parking spaces are found on the access route to the houses. You will feel like you are in the southern Mediterranean through your blue house door and blue wood lays, Mediterranean plants like bananas, oleanders, rosemary, lilacs, roses, colourfully planted flower tubs and the chirping of countless crickets. From the houses you can see a pasture for horses and a large Indian tepee - you can walk past these and it will take you directly into the forest and into the gorge trail. The property is optimal for families and pairs or groups that want to go on vacation together, but still want to have their private space. Children and pets can play undisrupted and without danger, because the street going to the city is far away.

About the property

Bellana **** Vacation Homes

Our ecologically built houses (each 85 m²), surrounded by horse pastures, are located on a sunny southern slope. On the ground floor you will find a living room with an open, completely furnished kitchen with a dishwasher and an oven. The pellet oven, rustic tiling and timber floorboards on the top floor, tasteful wood furniture and wooden decks make sure you feel comfortable and give it that cottage feeling. Furthermore, you will find a double bedroom and a bathroom with heated flooring. By taking comfortable wooden stairs, you will get to the gallery which has Sat-TV, DVD and a sleeper sofa, a cuddly bedroom with 2 beds and sofa bed and a room with a washer. The colourful images from the famous artist Rosina Wachtmeister - who is our guest every year -make for a southern flair. Relax in the beautiful garden and enjoy the view of the valley and the stable nearby. Or spend a romantic evening around a camp-fire in an Indian tepee.

Children get to know horses - Hippolini: This course (certified teacher) offers children and their parents the possibility to dive into the horse world and to build their first contact with these amazing animals. The goal here is to build a solid basis for respectful, unafraid and sensitive contact with horses. Riding for adults at our stable is only available with your own horse due to the lack of suitable school horses. An indoor riding ring, outdoor riding ring and round-pen are available with prior arrangements made with the neighbouring riding stables. For adults without a horse, there is the possibility to go riding at a stable 10 km away - also covered wagon rides. Start from our horse back riding station by the Saarland riding path. Our horse trainer, Marc Schuster, takes care of the education and correction of horses. For tournament preparation with your own horse and riding hours (western riding techniques) Bettina Kulle (trainer C, experienced tournament director - experience through the German championship).

Indian Tepee and Children's Birthdays: Our original Indian tepee, with a diameter of 8 m, offers a comfortable get-together around a camp fire and doesn't only make the children's hearts race! The energy and atmosphere of our tepee makes any event something special - whether it be a birthday party, seminar or family reunion - they will all become an unforgettable experience in our Indian tepee. Host a seminar in the tepee by the light of the fire. Enjoy the beautiful starry sky or search for peace in nature by observing horses in a pasture. Combine your vacation with a special birthday party for your child. We offer a great program for this where the children will be looked after by 2 elementary school educationalists: Indian face paint, making Indian jewellery and a small medicine bag, Indian games, gemstone search, treasure hunt, Indian stories while eating damper bread, building dream catchers, bow and arrow shooting. With our offers we reached the 3rd place in the landlord competition 2008.

Relax, rejuvenate and 'Gudd Gess' in Saarland: You can enjoy swimming and water-sports 5 km away in the Losheim reservoir. If there is bad weather, we recommend the spa in Merzig. There you can relax in warm waters or in the beautiful sauna facilities while your children are playing in the swimming area on the giant slide. After this, go shopping in Merzig and then enjoy culinary delights in one of the several restaurants where dishes from France and Saarland are offered - people from Saarland place a lot of value on their kitchen. You can also drink a good glass of wine in the garden of your vacation home and enjoy the sunset. If you want to explore the surroundings, you can hike through the beautiful premium hiking trails or observe the famous wolf and behavior researcher Werner Freund at his open-air enclosure. You can sail, bike or hike around the famous Saar loop.

We Love Bellana and Spending Time Here

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at "Bellana" several times over the past few years. Every time is better than the last. We love the quiet hospitality and lovely setting. The location is quiet enough for just passing the time, yet close enough to as many outdoor activities as you may possibly want. Our daughter especially loves the Hippolini/horse lessons with Frau K. (Thank you). I can't imagine any better way to introduce children to horses. Working with such majestic animals in such a great setting has helped with self confidence, ballence, and compassion (not just for the children either). If you are considering a vacation to the Saarland, I highly recommend staying at this outstanding vacation property.

einfach wunderbar

Die Bellana Ferienhäuser stehen eindeutig unter dem Motto " ankommen und sich sofrot zu Hause fühlen".

Die Ausstattung ist klasse, alles super sauber und die Vermieter ein Schatz. Was gewünscht wird, wird so schnell wie möglich besorgt und viele Tipps gibt es noch dazu.

Owner's Response: Liebe ehemalige und zukünftige Feriengäste, aus eigener Erfahrung mit zwei kleinen Kindern wissen wir selbst,wie wichtig es ist, dass die Gäste sich in dem Feriendomizil von Anfang an wohlfühlen. Wie oft haben wir nach langer Fahrt erst den Schlüssel suchen müssen, dann das Haus erst anheizen, putzen und desinfizieren. Wir wollen, dass sich alle von der ersten Minute an wohlfühlen. Ihre Gastgeberfanilie

Sehr, sehr schönes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Als wir angekommen sind, brannte schon der schöne Ofen und wir hatten es gleich kuschelig warm. Wir fühlten uns sofort wohl. Die Lage ist sehr schön, ruhig und idyllisch. Das Haus ist gemütlich und sehr liebevoll eingerichtet. Die Vermieter sind sehr sehr nett. Sie gaben uns sofort das Gefühl willkommen zu sein. Wir haben nette Gespräche geführt. Unsere achtjährige Tochter war ebenfalls begeistert. Vor allen wegen den Pferden und der Hündin Nelly. Die Hippolini-Family-Stunde hat uns allen viel Spaß gemacht. Es gibt sehr viele Ausflugsziele wie der Wolfspark, Villa Bork, Trier, Los heim, Saarschleife etc.

Wir möchten auf jeden Fall wieder kommen und das Saarland im Sommer erkunden.

Owner's Response: Liebe Feriengäste, für Vermieter ist die Zufriedenheit unserer Gäste das schönste Feedback. Herzlichen Dank für die positive Bewertung! Wir sind uns dessen bewusst, dass die zur Verfügung stehende Urlaubszeit knapp bemessen und daher sehr wertvoll ist. Umso wichtiger finden wir es, dass die Gäste sich wohlfühlen können. Wir als Vermieter möchten hierzu beitragen, soweit wir dies können. Alles Liebe und Gute wünschen wir unseren ehemaligen und zukünftigen Gästen Ihre Gastgeber Familie

Solche Ferienhäuser würde ich mir öfter wünschen: sehr schön, gute Raumaufteilung, sehr gute Ausstattung, ökologische Bauweise und sehr große Liebe zum Detail. Daneben ist die Lage der Häuser wunderschön in die Natur eingebettet. Wenn dann noch - wie hier - sehr nette Vermieter hinzukommen, kann man nur sagen: Perfekt!

Wir haben uns in dem durchdacht konzipierten und äußerst liebevoll ausgestatteten Ferienhaus sofort wohlgefühlt. Da wir selbst ein Ferienhaus in einem ganz anderen Teil Deutschlands unterhalten, ist uns bewusst, wieviel Mühe sich die Gastgeber hier geben, damit der Gast rundum zufrieden ist. Es fehlt an nichts, die Betreuung ist herzlich. In der Umgebung gibt es Freizeitangebote für jedes Alter und jeden Geschmack. Uns Eltern gefielen die wunderbaren Wanderwege, den Kindern eher das Schwimmbad "Das Bad". Die vielen Ausflüge zu römischen Ausgrabungen, zum Wolfsgehege, nach Trier, Unesco-Weltkulturerbe Völklingen, Luxembourg und Frankreich waren weitere Highlights. Etwas ganz Besonderes waren die zwei sogar kurzfristig buchbaren Einführungsstunden in die Westernreitkunst, in der wir mit Humor und Einfühlungsvermögen nach langer Reitpause wieder an die Kommunikation mit den Pferden herangeführt wurden! Einziger Nachteil ist, dass man ein Auto braucht, um die Vielzahl der Möglichkeiten auszuschöpfen. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall gern wieder. Wärmstens zu empfehlen!

Water enthusiasts can relax at the Losheim reservoir or at the spa in Merzig. You can also take children to the rail-road museum with the historic train. Visit the cultural highlights like open-air concerts at the lake, operas in circus tents, knight and children festivals. Culinary treats are offered at comfortable restaurants with a French flair.

Other Activities: Hippolini-Holiday - small riding school for children and parents, horse schooling, riding on you own horse, private paddock for horse riding

Golf: There is a recently amplified golf course in Nunkirchen, located about 15 km away from Rissenthal in a beautiful valley.


Ski: If there is snow, you can cross-country ski in Weiskirchen (about 15 km) or you can go on the Petersberg at Braunshausen (30 km) and on the Erbeskopf (about 40 km) for downhill skiing and tobogganing. The hiking trails are especially lovely and romantic when there is snow.
