Turning into the Relax Cottages is a lifestyle choice; The Green Lifestyle! You have been extra conscious to cater organic meals at your wedding and realized that most of you guests were vegetarian or even vegan or maybe you enjoy a special lifestyle or diet yourselves. Relax Cottage is the place for you and your “S.O.”. The two of you can lean back and relax with knowledge you are doing good for the environment. It´s the first “LOHAS” Hotel build in Germany. “LOHAS” stands for “Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability”.

For example CEO Michael Vervoort uses solar collectors to heat and power the cottages; a photovoltaic system that provides 50% of the energy of the Relax Cottages. Michael Vervoort took his time researching and not losing the relax factor for his green Cottages Resort. His hard work has paid off, the Relax Cottages has received several awards for innovation and sustainability. Plan your honeymoon well in advance if this is your choice the Relax cottage is booked out for the next 8 months.
When booking a cottage at Relax Cottages, the choice of complete privacy or the bustle of a busy Metropolis is solely up to you since, as we mentioned before; you can drive in any direction to reach a major city within the hour.
You will find an abundance of sightseeing possibilities in Cologne with its Grand Cathedral, "Der Kölner Dom"- or drive to Maastricht and walk along the narrow cobblestone roads filled with Galleries, Museums and lots of boutique shopping. You will enjoy the restaurants and cafes on every corner! You can pack your days with adventurous road trips to Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam or even Lichtenstein!
The best part about it is the soothing knowledge that you have a quiet retreat of the Relax Cottage upon your return. Enter the cottage, drop your bags, kick off your shoes, turn on the fireplace in the living room and wind up the Whirlpool or heat up the Sauna - oh did we mention the latter are both located in your bedroom?
This Honeymoon spot embraces pure relaxation in a nature friendly ambiance. It’s the better choice that focuses on Health and Fitness, the Environment, Personal Development, Sustainable Living, and Social Justice all packed in a (quaint) Cottage.
