My Europe Base

Extended Stays in RHINELAND GERMANY 

Introducing ‘My Europe Base’

Experience life in Central Europe staying on the idyllic Mosel River in a leading vintner town. Enjoy the local wine, beer, food – and atmosphere! Hikes abound and it’s a cycling paradise. Relax and soak in nearby thermal resorts. Explore the Rhineland region and neighbouring states in Germany, France, Luxembourg, Belgium and Netherlands.

My Europe Base is our concept for convenient, affordable long-stay apartments in Europe with our property in Zell, a key town on the Mosel River in Germany’s famous Rheinland and perfect for Australians seeking a base for their travels in Europe. It is one of the most picturesque on the famed Mosel and dates from Celtic and Roman times. The tradition of wine-making continues and the town has a vibrant international flavour with many cafes and wine cellars.

Points for guests:

  • The house faces the Mosel, is backed by steep vineyards, and is one of the town’s prettiest.
  • Only 2 minutes walk to the town centre promenade, 5 minutes to the Zellerland Regional Tourism Office.
  • Apartments are modern, vary from studio to 2 bedroom, fully-equipped, 3-4 star level and have Mosel views
  • Zell has a busy pedestrian centre with restaurants, wine cellars, cafes and shops.
  • Nearby Zell-Barl has a large shopping centre and hospital, accessible by regular bus.
  • Summers are warm and winters relatively mild with occasional snows.
