Overview

Ribeauville area Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Former medieval winery mansion beautifully restored

The location is exceptional: in the medieval ramparts, facing the vineyards. It is quiet, but only a few hundred meters from the heart of Riquewihr, one of the most beautiful villages in France ...

This is a collection of 6 new outstanding luxury holiday homes: 4 of them are located in a big Renaissance house (actually a winery built in 1580) on the first belt of the ramparts (built 3 centuries earlier in the year 1291). The property is facing the famous Schoenenbourg Grand Cru vineyard producing some of the best Alsace wine; 2 other apartments are in a 17th Century adjacent house. The houses are surrounding a small garden. The renovation works took more than 2 years. The result is a gem!

About Jean-Paul Krebs

Les Remparts de Riquewihr (Ramparts of Riquewihr) is our small family business. We are a couple of tourism professionals - Martine and Jean-Paul - having many years of experience in airline business and travels.

We think that - especially for a rather long stay (most of our guests are discovering the slow travel concept and are staying 7 nights and more) - it is not enough to sleep well during the night but it is necessary to enjoy the stay in a place which is somehow of the same level as the historical surroundings, the landscape, the mountain and the vineyards: beautiful. We put a lot of effort and care in the renovation and decoration of our vacation rental apartments because we want our holiday homes to be a memorable part of your travel experience to Alsace and France.

Jean-Paul Krebs purchased this apartment in 2012

Our holiday homes belong without any doubt to the finest places to stay in Alsace.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is exceptional: a very quiet historical place facing the most famous vineyard in the area but within short walking distance of the historical center of the village.

Still one of the best places we have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

We were here in January and enjoyed the frosting of snow while staying in The White Stork. We thought it was the best, but this time we are staying in Lucky Dragon and are enjoying the spring time so much. This is also a wonderful place. We especially love the jacuzzi bathtub, the large covered outside area and the careful attention to every detail. We would move in if we could. It couldn't be more perfect. This is our third stay, each time in a different and equally wonderful apartment. This is true luxury.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being a faithful and valuable guest. We did our best to renovate those old historical houses and turn them into modern and comfortable holiday apartments while keeping the charm of the Alsatian architecture and traditions. We are proud to have received on May 1, 2 gold medals awarded by the Alsatian Heritage Houses Saving Association for our rescuing and restoring historic old houses in Riquewihr ...

A fairy tale come true!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wintery week in a fairy tale come true. This is truly a wonderful place to spend time. The apartment was so comfortable we wanted to move in permanently. It lives up to all the charm that Riquewihr has to offer. Beautifully decorated and truly comfortable from the bed to the couches and the large bathtub with all amenities you could want. We wanted to come back for a few days this summer, but the dates we wanted were already taken. Be sure to make your reservations early and not miss this magical place. We received good recommendations for restaurants and wines of the area. Helpful owners and staff made the experience even better. There is so much to see and do in the area. Then in the evening when all the day trippers leave you have the town almost to yourselves. We loved the storks too.

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at the Alsation Hart apartment. The suite is charming, nicely decorated and outfitted to a high standard. The two bedroom, two bath configuration was perfect for our stay. The air conditioning was a nice plus as well for those hot days. The property is ideally located on a quiet alley away from the busy areas of the town. Riquewihr and the surrounding areas are beautiful with lots to see and do for families as well as couples. The property manager, Valerie, was charming and easily contacted if needed.

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

Great location - easy drive from Strasbourg Airport, easily located, parking only short walk from apartment (located in ramparts on edge of town) and easy 5 mins walk from centre of town & restaurants etc. Apartment itself is a admirable example of restoration - it has character, but is also clean, comfortable, modern and user-friendly with 2 small but usable balconies. Also has pleasant views of the vineyards through bedroom windows. Five nights stay in this apartment was an ideal & idyllic break and Riquewihr is the perfect base for an explore of Alsace.

Owner's Response: We would like to say a big thank you for staying with us in Riquewihr. As you can imagine, restoring old historical places needs a lot of efforts, not only investment but ideas and some strengh and will to overcome all the obstacles. Learning that our guests are having a pleasant stay is our best reward. Riquewihr is a wonderful and romantic little medieval city hidden between the Vosges mountains and some of the most famous vineyards in Alsace. Although in a very preserved area, Riquewihr is only 7 miles from Colmar and minutes from other famous alsatian villages like Ribeauvillé, Hunawihr, Eguisheim or Kaysersberg. Our holiday apartments in Riquewihr are also a very practical base to visit all Alsace, the Vosges mountains and even nearby Germany and Switzerland. We have a website and a blog in English with plenty of pictures and and practical info to prepare your trip to Alsace.

Stunning, our best rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

This property far exceeded our expectations: for size, for quality of decor including an induction range, for overall charm.While Riquewihr is a destination throbbing with day trippers, White Stork is an oasis of calm 60 meters off the Main Street. When they leave, you go out and enjoy this wonderful village. The proprietors seem to have thought of everything to make this a perfect stay and a bargain in terms of price.

Riquewihr, perhaps the most romantic medieval city of Alsace is hidden among the vineyards and the Vosges Mountains.

Alsace and the medieval town of Riquewihr the vineyards are definitely a great destination. Alsace offers a unique combination of history, culture and landscapes. A renowned gastronomy and delicious wine make it one of the most interesting regions to visit in Europe.

In early 2010, the famous travel guides Lonely Planet elected Alsace among the original 10 destinations in the world to visit this year! For Lonely Planet, Alsace is one of the most beautiful and the most original of France which, thanks to its wine, cuisine and other attractions and tourist facilities are worth the trip.

Riquewihr is one of the crown jewels and has still the face that was hers there nearly 500 years. More than 30 restaurants are within walking distance in the village, the traditional family restaurant in the establishment of prestigious Michelin star.

Riquewihr is also a convenient place to stay for exploring and discovering all Alsace, but also very close to Germany and even Switzerland.
