I support the people, who sell their self-produced goods here locally: the neighbour across the street with her jam, the other neighbours across the street with delicious honey, the potter 2 houses below my property with her great range of ceramics.
I recommend the various organic shops, the shop “unpacked” and the weekly market in Trier, so that they buy organic, low-packed and local.
I recommend the beautiful hiking trails in countryside and wonderful cycle paths in the surrounding area, the restaurants in the neighbouring village Tarforst, reachable in 20 minutes on foot through the fields. There are 2 bus stops nearby (2 km along the footpath) to get take you to the city and back without a car.
Guests will find good maps for hikes and bicycle tours available in the cottages. Should guests enquire, I can point them in the right direction for a walk to the next shopping centre (3 km) through the fields and through the next village.
There is a bicycle station at Trier main station, where you can rent bicycles and electric bikes.
I dry the laundry – whenever possible – outside on the washing line, which my guests are also welcome to use.
I only use green electricity from Ökostrom and only drive a plug-in electric car which I only top up at home.
It is important to me to protect our fragile environment.
This year I would also like to have an electric car charging station installed in the guest parking lot.
