Overview

Obernai Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Built in 1532, 5 centuries of history

We wanted to give back all its meanings to seasonal rental through novelty; it is obviousness rediscovered. Our rental is above all a couple that is fond of welcoming people; that stands up for a new idea, an idea based on the rediscovery of authentic welcome. Opposite to a conventional key handing over, our welcome and the house we are renting to you are our true richness and we wish to share them; we have done our best for your stay to be the nicest possible. We will provide you with all the necessary information. We are at your disposal to make everything easier for you: that is our commitment to our guests in order to ensure them a quality rental with complete clearness. The house has a soul, a print of more than 600 years of history, and we want to give you the best of it.

Touristic circuits: 1- The Wine Road: the traveller who wanders for the first time on this road or halts in one of the small wine-producing villages from the 16th century is amazed by the scenery and will enjoy the culinary delights. Steeped in history, it generally follows a Roman road, passes by height with ruins of antique fortified castles, by monasteries and churches, and it is not rare that history blends with legend. It goes along valleys where most of the villages come from very ancient settlements which, during the Middle Ages, became thriving and free cities. It will let you in a constant amazement state.

2 - The museums: in every city, you will find museums internationally renowned.

3 - The hikes: numerous and various.

4 - The cities: Strasbourg or Colmar, Eguisheim, Kaisersbergh, Riquewirh will all bring you back to the Middle Ages with all the half-timbered houses. They will let you dreamy.

Obernai: a cluster of Alsace located at the foot of the Mont Saint Odile, at 230 m of altitude. With storks, half-timbered houses from the 16th century, blooming streets, ramparts and vineyards, Obernai exemplifies the atmosphere of the region. With a sharp mind, let you be won over by the city and its loads of leisure activities, the renowned restaurants (more than 40), the high quality shops, the innumerable leisure activities: tennis, hikes, horseback riding, archery, stadiums, fitness facilities, theatre, cinema, arts centre, a 8000 m² nautical resort! Hospital, doctors, specialists, laboratories. Synagogue, temple, church. Motorway access just outside the city; station with trains for everywhere within a radius of 1 km from the house! Everything is accessible by foot! You can't beat that!

It is the most visited city of the region. Everyday there is an event to entertain you. You discover it; you become attached to it...

The house: it will enchant you. The property was built in 1532 and is certified 4 stars by the Gîtes de France association. It was completely restored minding to keep its authenticity without forgetting the comfort. It has a fully equipped kitchen: dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, refrigerator, freezer, quality oven, etc. Living room with 112 cm flat screen TV, DVD player (70 DVDs), international channels (more than 200). Dining room for 12 guests, set, library.

All with panelling and paintings. Two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, one of which has a 112 cm flat screen TV. On the second floor, one bedroom with 3 beds, balcony, shower room and TV, overlooking the 300 m² patio with flowers, water fountains and sculptures. Fitness room (20 m²) and 2 private parking spots (outdoors).

The greeting has to reflect the house: warm and authentic.

Beautiful Old House in Charming Town

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful old house full of character and ideally situated to walk into Obernai. Very hospitable mists who greeted us with coffee, cakes and drinks. Obernai is a delight and the centre is only a few minutes walk away. Local boulangerie is barely a minutes walk.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We (three older couples) loved our stay here.

The home might not work for people with mobility problems (you must climb a spiral staircase to get to the bedrooms) or those who want predictable perfection in their accommodations, but we found the home to be quaint, charming, and perfectly situated for exploring Obernai and Alsace.

The owner was quaint and charming as well (and you'll find him a fascinating conversationalist if you speak French). He gave us lots of invaluable advice about which restaurants and local sites we should visit. He also recommended an outstanding local winery that was well worth the trip.

Highly recommended!

A great holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

Manoirsainteolile is a wonderful place to stay. The house was very spacious for 2 couples. Everything that you need for cooking, sleeping, & relaxing is available. The hosts, Gilbert & Simone are very friendly and helpful. They were please to show us their home and the entire property. It is amazing! They have beautiful antiques and are generous to offer use of them to their guests. The villa is centrally located with just a short walk to town. There is a bakery at the end of the street and many great restaurants in town. The house is very private~ once you close the gate at night, it is very quiet and serene. The private courtyard is beautiful and a nice place for dining, if desired. This is a wonderul place to spend your holiday and I hope to return. The town of Obernai is delightful with lots of shopping, friendly people and good food. Do yourself a favor and reserve this space for your holiday.

TRES BON SEJOUR

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour à Obernai où il fait bon vivre. Nous remercions les propriétaires qui nous ont très bien accueillis, en nous faisant découvrir leur région avec de précieux conseils (culturels, gastronomiques). Nous avons également apprécié leur discrétion au quotidien ainsi que leur gentillesse.

La propriété est exceptionnelle et typiquement alsacienne. Elle est située dans un quartier très calme et très proche du centre.

Excellent séjour en Alsace

  • 4 of 5

A 5 minutes à pieds du centre ville d'Obernai par des ruelles bordées de maisons typiques et fleuries, nous pénétrons dans cette demeure par le patio, havre de paix, agencé avec beaucoup de goût et magnifiquement fleuri.

L'habitation est bien équipée, la salle agréable et les chambres très spacieuses.

Nous remercions les propriétaires pour leur accueil chaleureux

Seul petit reproche, la maison entièrement couverte de boiserie est très sombre et mériterait des éclairages plus lumineux.

Owner's Response: j'apprécie vos remarques constructives concernant les boiseries qui effectivement confèrent à la maison sa patine d'ancienneté , néanmoins je vais les éclaisir car votre proposition est pertinente j'ai déja encore et toujours amélioré la décoration intérieure en y plaçant d'autres tableaux de tapisseries faites main pour mettre davantage en valeur son authenticité de son époque : 1523 Merci ,encouragé par toutes les manifestations écrites de satisfaction je vais continuer dans cette tradition de l'accueil à la Française comme l'a souligné récemment notre commune en nous octroyant le premier prix du fleurissement de la maison Désormais notre maison fait parti du circuit touristique effectué par l'office de tourisme de la ville un grand merci Madame au nom aussi de mon épouse qui veille en permanence à la tenue de cette maison n'ignorant pas que vous vous vous consacrez dans une association en recherchant tout ce qui est beau bon et vrai dans le soucis permaent de la sauvegarde de notre patrimoine

Located in the centre of one of the most visited medieval cities in Alsace. To discover the activities offered in this city, consult its website. Obernai is at the crossroads between Germany, Switzerland, and all of Alsace. It is a place where you can enjoy strolling about through the medieval alleys, going shopping in one of the various quality shops, going to the market on Thursday morning, going to the theatre, to the cultural centre, walking down the paths along a river, following a cycle path; the possibilities are infinite. Fast access to (highway 500 m away) Strasbourg, Colmar, Mulhouse and the famous Wine Route. Welcome in an authentic and inviting setting: the romantic mansion from 1532 that we propose. Consult our website. You will fall in love with it!

Golf: located in Alsace, in the middle of the Wine Route, a few kilometres from Colmar and Strasbourg, the Ammerschwihr golf club (awarded three gold ears of corn) offers an 18 holes course in an extraordinary setting between vines and forests.

Designed by Robert Berthet in 1990, this rolling course, with a length of 5385 meters, offers always different play situations, which gives a lot of character to this golf course.

Beginners and experienced golfers will appreciate this diversity.

Located between the Bruche's Valley and the Villé's Valley, it offers a rolling relief and landscapes of mainly alpine lawns, forests and peat bogs.
