My stay was from 1 Dec 2018 to 8 Dec 2018. Simon met me upon my arrival and proceeded to give me an orientation of the property. The apartment is 3 floors next door to Simon's home located on a cul-de-sac. There is a manually operated driveway gate that Simon leaves open during the day. You park your car inside the gate, allowing enough room for Simon to park his car in the garage. On the ground floor, accessed from the driveway, there's a sauna and exercise room containing a treadmill, stationary bike, elliptical, and rowing machine. The 1st floor is accessed via exterior steps leading to a covered porch entry. The 1st floor has a full kitchen, living room, eat-in kitchen table, all equipped to a high standard. There's the option for a wood burning fire in the living room. The 2nd floor is accessed via stairs; there are two bedrooms and a half-bath, so you'll need to use the 1st floor bathroom for your shower. Bergheim is a nice village of cobbled lanes and half-timbered buildings. Simon had his home and the apartment decorated for Christmas. The village was having a Nativity creche decorating theme for Christmas and there were several families that participated in the village. Simon and his father, Jean-Louis, had built a homemade creche in the driveway with lighting. Very nice. I did day trips every day. The Haut-Rhin Alsace Wine Route with Colmar, Ribeauville, Riquewihr, Kaysersburg, Equisheim, and Guebwiller all being beautiful villages along the route, all having Christmas markets. I did day trips to Freiburg, Germany and Basel, Switzerland too. Just a great time during the week. I walked to Ribeauville and back to Bergheim using lanes and paths through the vineyards. There's a Proxi convenience/grocery store in Bergheim for basics that's within easy walking distance. There are larger grocery stores near Ribeauville that require a car. Thanks Simon for a great stay at La Maison d'Achille. Your English is way better than my French or German.
