Vacation Perfection in Riquewihr, France

The Alsace region, the town of Riquewihr, the Sentinel apartment, and Jean-Paul and Martine provided us with an outstanding vacation experience - one that has stolen our hearts!
The Sentinel apartment is as charming in person as it is online. It’s lovely, well maintained, well equipped with everything you need, and warm and inviting - the perfect home away from home. If you are in need of anything, a simple phone call to Valerie is immediately answered. Jean-Paul and Martine provided brochures and other information about the region which was extremely helpful in planning and getting the most out of our vacation days.
With its location between the Vosges mountains and the vineyards, Riquewihr’s ambience is positively enchanting. The wines produced in the region are superb and the food is spectacular. We loved every restaurant we visited in Riquewihr. We would especially recommend Le Sarment d’Or for the food and experience and the outstanding wines of Maison Zimmer (Au Tire Bouchon Winstub). Plan on spending a substantial amount of time exploring Riquewihr and all it has to offer (like the open market on Friday!) and also venture out to Colmar, Ribeauville, and Strasbourg, as well as just about any other nearby town or city - each is unique, beautiful and rewarding. If you get the chance, meet the artist Christian Schwob, who created the artwork in the Sentinel, and perhaps purchase one of his pieces to memorialize your vacation.
A highlight of our vacation in Riquewihr was the kindness and thoughtfulness of Jean-Paul and Martine. For a truly unforgettable vacation make your reservation in Riquewihr with the Krebs! Don’t wait another minute or you’ll miss the opportunity - their apartments book up quickly for a reason!
