Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 days in this delightful home and could not have been happier. It was very clean and well equipped with charm that made our time in Eguisheim very memorable. We can't say enough about the owner and his kindness to help us in every way he could, right from the first phone call until we left. We loved Eguisheim and the bike rental shop right next door was perfect. Don't miss a chance to ride in the vineyards from town to town, it was spectacular. Wishing you all the best Claude, I hope we will meet again one day.

17th Century Eguisheim Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Gite/cottage: Owners are quite charming, accommodating and attentive. First venture to France for an extended stay and they made it easy and enjoyable. The owners speak French, English and German and they were able to answer our many questions. Their pictures of their cottage are exact and real. The cottage was very clean when we arrived.

Village: Eguisheim, France is quaint and distinctive by their half timbered homes and romantic cobblestone alleys. For dining experiences, there is a variety of very expensive to the more laid back and not so expensive. A few times we just grabbed a baguette, some different cheeses and meats for a meal for a light lunch or dinner.

Groceries: local eggs, lard paisson (bacon), various meats and escargot can be purchased in the village or you can go to the Hyper U or Cora markets in nearby Colmar. The cottage has a coffee pot and espresso machine.

Wine tasting: Tasting Alsatian wines is a must. The white wines we tried were not too sweet and pleasantly dry.

Our goal was to unplug and disconnect from our busy lives with our two teenagers. This area was majestic in its setting and accommodated our needs. There is plenty to do if you desire. Located right next to the Pigeon House. Next door is a bike rental for full or half days. Neighboring villages have museums, river rides and lots more if you are looking.

Highly recommend his place for your next getaway.

Maison de vacances très pittoresque

  • 5 of 5

Ce gîte est une maison de vacances en très bon état et très jolie et confortable dans un village pittoresque. On peut passer ses vacances là-dedans très agréablement. C'est un bon point de départ pour des excursions en Alsace et aussi un bon but pour revenir le soir.

Le loueur est très gentil, secourable et prévenant.

Nous pouvons recommander sans restriction de passer les vacances dans cette maison.

Ein wunderbares historisches Haus mit dem Standard von heute. (einfach klasse)

  • 5 of 5

Zunächst bedanken wir uns für den angenehmen Kontakt zum netten Eigentümer, Herrn Wehrle. Das historische Gebäude ist auf aktuellen Standard modernisiert, so haben wir gemütlich, ruhig und warm gewohnt.

Wir fanden es so schön, von dort zu Fuß den weitgehend autofreien Ort mit den alten Häusern und Gassen, Einkaufs- und Einkehrmöglichkeiten zu durchstreifen. Doch auch weitere umliegende Winzerorte und das nahe Colmar sind mit dem Auto als lohnende Ziele leicht erreichbar. So verlebten wir hier eine erholsame und interessante Woche und kommen gerne wieder!

Séjour enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons découvert avec grand plaisir cette belle maison, restaurée et arrangée avec goût ce qui lui permet de garder son authenticité et son charme. Sa situation est privilégiée, car les commerces et restaurants sont à portée de main. Malgré le flot de touristes, la porte de la maison une fois fermée, le calme y règne et aucun bruit extérieur ne vient déranger la quiétude des lieux. Le petit patio à l’arrière permet de passer un moment au frais, loin de l’agitation des rues passagères. La maison est très bien équipée et de petits détails en font le plus. A relever aussi toute la documentation à disposition, ce qui facilite grandement le séjour. Nous avons passé d’excellentes vacances dans cette maison de charme où nous nous sentions vraiment chez nous et c’est avec regret que nous l’avons quittée. Nous tenons à remercier les propriétaires pour leur promptitude à répondre aux questions, leur gentillesse et leur aide précieuse. Nous ne pouvons que recommander cette superbe maison à toute personne souhaitant passer un séjour inoubliable au cœur d’un village très typique sis au cœur des vignobles.
