Cantzheim

Swiss Architect Max Dudler designed the renovation and extension of the Gutshaus Cantzheim manor, situated between a side stream of the Saar River and a vineyard. The ensemble of buildings has been transformed into a guest house, wine shop, event venue and private apartment.

The two new additions at either end of the baroque manor house form architectural brackets around it, emphasising its striking solitary effect. The “Remise” has a monolithic appearance: its walls and roof are constructed of tamped concrete and the earth tones of its materials reflect the colours of the surrounding landscape. A counterpoint can be found in the steel and glass gallery on the other side of the mansion, the design of which refers to the vertical structure of the vines.

The guest rooms (4 rooms and a suite) are located within the manor house and the Remise. The simple elegance of the interior design emphasises the architectural details, such as the old beams in the attic of the manor or the clear, simple shapes of the modern Remise. With its terrazzo staircase and floors and furniture of cherry wood, the Remise was designed in the same style as the historic manor.


What to do

The manor house is located in the tri-border region between Germany, France, Luxembourg. Trips to the wine region of Saar and Obermosel, to Trier, to Saarland, to Luxembourg or Lorraine. Cycling or hiking tours, culinary delights and cultural events.

Why we like this house

The simple beauty of the old and new architecture and the location amidst a culturally rich region make Gutshaus Cantzheim a stylish resort for travellers in search of something special.

Ein Kleinod an der Saar, das alle Sinne stimuliert.
Das von Max Dudler perfekt und stilsicher renovierte Gebäude, die korrespondierende sowie spannende Inneneinrichtung und Kunst, die gemütliche Atmosphäre, sich sofort zu Hause zu fühlen, dank der so liebenswerten Gastgeber Anna & Stephan Reimann, abgerundet von dem herrlichen Riesling, wie z. B. der Gärtnerin und dem Fuchs, aus den eigenen Lagen.
So schön und doch so anregend. Das ist perfekte Harmonie. Das ist Cantzheim.

Tolle Zimmer! Tolle Weine! Unheimlich sympathische und warmherzige Besitzer. Haben uns direkt wohl gefühlt. Und das Frühstück ist ein absolutes Highlight!

Zimmer sind sehr schön.
Leider ist vorne die Straße und hinter dem Haus die Bahngleisen so das dies nicht für lärmempfindliche Menschen geeignet ist. Die Gastgeber sind leider sehr unpersönlich.

Wie schon beim Quartier 65, es sind eher die kleinen Projekte, wo die monolithische und reduzierte Architekturhandschrift von Max Dudler hervorragend zur Geltung kommt. Ein wahrer Baumeister seiner Zeit!
