About Willi & Ria Henken

Born in Erftstadt near Cologne (Willi H.) and Herentals near Antwerp (Ria H.), we live in Kalterherberg since 1984.

The unique nature and the friendly people have made this spot quickly become our home. We are only about 400 meters away from the holiday house and are therefore our guests quickly and without problems with advice and deed to the side.

Willi & Ria Henken purchased this house in 2014

Why Willi & Ria Henken chose Kalterherberg

We wanted to create a special accommodation with the newly built holiday house in 2014, which offers guests with high standards of accommodation, facilities and location, as well as guests with physical limitations a hundred percent holiday experience.

What makes this house unique

Architecturally, the house was designed and built in the style of a Swedish house, with low construction, a lot of wood and completely flat.

With a lot of love and commitment the high-quality and extensive equipment was planned and implemented. My wife was particularly involved in the design. We were very conscientious, but we could have overlooked something, so the feedback from our guests is very important to us.

Particularly important is the personal contact with our guests. Both the welcome and the thorough instruction, as well as our availability with questions or problems of our guests, belongs to our philosophy as a host.

You will feel comfortable with us, guaranteed!

Excellent property, peaceful and relaxing location.

  • 5 of 5

We regularly holiday in Germany and this is the best house we have stayed in. The house was exactly as the pictures show, we met the owners at the property and they showed us around and ensured we understood where everything was and how it worked. The hot tub is brilliant and was the perfect way to relax in the evening after visiting the nearby towns. The pool table and fußball were great additions and our two children (6 & 8) loved playing. The location is very quiet and only a 10 mins drive to Monshau (a pretty German town). The baker and butchers in the village were also very useful.

I would highly recommend this property and I'm sure we will return at some point in the future.

We stayed here to take in the Belgian Grand Prix at the nearby Spa-Francorchamps, and it`s one of the nicest holiday homes we`ve stayed in. Location was lovely and it was easy to get to the track. The property was clean and really well presented, and the wheelchair facilities were superb! The bathroom was well equipped and really big. Ria was an excellent host and the hot tub was the icing on the cake! Would definitely recommend.

Wunderschöner Aufenthalt! Sehr empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Es war ein wunderschöner Aufenthalt. Es war alles super sauber und modern. Die Zimmer und Betten waren tadellos und außerdem war alles vorhanden was man braucht und sogar noch mehr! Der Garten war perfekt für die Hunde, da er komplett eingezäunt ist und der Whirlpool war das absolute Highlight! Wir hatten wunderschöne Tage im "roten Schweden" und können das Haus nur weiter empfehlen, denn auch die Vermieter waren super nett.

A few kilometers away is the old town of Monschau with stunning architecture and many dining establishments.
