Welcome to our Holiday Home. We hope You find it here, in our House and in the Eifel, to Your Liking. We would like to comment on Your Stay in the “Note Book” at the entrance. Of course, we like to hear what You liked, but also what You missed or what your Idea might be better for us. We have furnished our Houses according to our Experiences in Holiday Homes and how we would like to find a Holiday Home for our Holiday.
As You will notice, we always make sure there are a few Foods in the House on Arrival so you can enjoy a Cup of Coffee or Tea immediately. Coffee Pods Can be found in the Pad Container as well as Sugar, Milk and Tea.
On the Table below the Stairs at the Entrance are several Folders. Here we have collected Leaflets of Activities you can do here in the Area and (hiking) maps.
You can use the Books, DVDs and Games as well as the Grill Plate and the Cotton Candy Machine on the Bookshelf On The top Floor.
Do You monitor your Children when they use the Trampoline? It can be used by anyone at their own Risk. Do You want To use the Trampoline without Shoes?
The Garden around the House can be used by anyone; Only the Terrace with a grey Ribbon, which is delineated in front of the Basement, and the Terrace of the 5-person apartment building behind the Garden are exclusively suitable for these Apartments. See also the Sketch below.
If you don’t already exist, there are several Garden chairs, Pillows, garden Umbrellas, Barbecues and Bicycles that are free to use in the Garage and In the Small barn next to the garage.
The Plot of the Apartments is on the left to the grassy Ramp, on the right Down to the gray Crevice and above the End of the Stone wall until The extension of the Terrace beyond.
You can park Your Car on the dark grey Plane along the Road.
The Apartments speak largely for themselves, but to make it easy for You, taking some Explanations and more Information.
For all Appliances, the Instructions are in one of the Kitchen Cabinets or Drawers and under the TV.
Books, DVDs and Games
On the top Floor is a Wardrobe of Books, Games and DVDs and Blue Ray’s.
You’ll also find Devices like a universal Charger, suikerspin machine, popcorn machine and a breadmaker machine (makes a Lot of Noise into the Kneading process, perhaps handy to place it on the Work table in the Garage). These are free to use.
In the Apartments (not in the Studio) you will find a Room Thermostat in the Living room or in the Hall. Here You can use the Knob To control the Temperature of Your Home. We have already set the Temperature at an Average Temperature; Don’t Make too big Changes here. Because we have Underfloor Heating, it takes a few Hours for You to see the Result of Your Adjustments. A lower Temperature can last even longer due to the excellent Insulation of the House.
The Temperature can only be set with the Knob if there is no Image of a Key In the Screen. If this is the case, the lower Button next to the Display must be pressed on the right side until the Button stops flashing and is no longer visible. Then set the Temperature with the Knob.
If the Screen is empty, the Voltage is turned off by our Power provider. This happens regularly when there is a lot of Demand for Electricity. As a rule, this takes up to half an Hour.
In Summer, Underfloor heating Works as a Cooling if the Heating is not on “ECO.” You have to keep not having to do anything. Make Sure the Knob Is not too low for the Temperature; The Floor then cools too far and the Moisture will drop off on the Tile Floor and wet and smooth.
Please do not press the Buttons on the Thermostat that can disable the Program.
In the normal Program, the Display should in turn specify the Time and Temperature, the Circle around it must be completely closed.
If this is not the case, the Button to the left of the Display (with the Text ‘ ECO ‘) will be pressed once or more until the correct Screen appears.
