Beautiful house in a very central location. Javier was an excellent host, suggesting things to see.

  • 5 of 5

The property is a beautiful 3 story house with a small courtyard terrace. It is tastefully decorated and was well equipped with everything we needed. It's located in the lovely old centre of Colmar and close to many bakeries and a monoprix supermarket for those wanting to self cater. We had a hire car so it was very useful to have the private garage a short walk away.

Javier is an excellent host and took time to suggest a range of things to see and do, both in Colmar and in her surrounding area.

We would love to return someday soon.

Perfect for two a beautifully presented apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautifully presented apartment for two wonderful weeks exploring Colmar and surrounds. The attention to detail and thoughtful inclusions were exceptional with a very warm welcome and everything we needed to enjoy this picturesque and interesting town. No need for a car, a great walking town and we used local buses to visit other nearby towns. Many great eating places and friendly locals. A very enjoyable and relaxing introduction to the Alsace region with the most amazingly good weather for the entire stay.

A top class holiday home in a beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

I wish we could award more than 5 stars. This flat is a superb exercise in mixing modern interior design with a charming timber framed house. It is wonderfully well equipped and very comfortably furnished and it is right in the middle of a ridiculously picture postcard perfect town. The lock-up garage 10 minutes walk from the flat is a huge bonus in a town where parking space is rare and expensive.

The Unterlinden Museum is closed for much of 2015 but the alternative display of probably its most famous works of art, the Issenheim altarpiece, is not more than 100m from the flat. Bakers, delis, restaurants and general shops are all available with in the same distance. Slightly further away is the restaurant Atelier du Peintre where were had a meal that was a glorious firework display of flavours. The station is slightly further away than the garage. Trains into Strasbourg are fast and frequent and it is a city full of sights and museums that are well worth visiting. And then there's the wine route. We weren't able to spend as much time following it as I would have liked but we made one very worthwhile call to the Cave de Beblenheim where we found all sorts of very good wines to try and to buy at very reasonable prices.

Thank you Javier and Romuald for providing such a perfect base to explore all that Colmar and the Alsace have to offer.

The dream apartment

  • 5 of 5

Even after nine days in this beautiful apartment, I still felt sad leaving!

It had the most beautiful ambiance, with wonderful artistic decor and unique touches. The apartment's location, at the entrance to the magical 'old town' of Colmar, was superb. We loved watching from the window as tourists turned the street corner and immediately reached for their cameras. We felt incredibly fortunate to be 'one of the locals' if only for a short while.

Romuald and Xavier were the most welcoming and informative hosts it has been our pleasure to meet on our frequent travels.

I would be happy to just wrap this apartment up in cotton wool and transport it to all our future travel destinations.

We are already planning a return visit to Colmar, a beautiful town rightfully proud of its local cuisine and traditions, and would look no further than this apartment for our stay. Thank you Romuald and Xavier, for giving us this wonderful experience and wishing you lots of success in 2015.

beautiful, cozy, charming and fresh!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of spending five wonderful nights in this beautiful apartment in the Old Town of Colmar. The location couldn't be better: 10 minutes from the train station, 10 minutes from Petit Venise, on a quiet square near super markets, bakeries and delicious restaurants. Romuald made us feel more than at home, welcoming us with cookies and a lovely bottle of local sparkling wine. This apartment comes with the highest of recommendations; an absolutely pleasurable experience all around. Thank you!

Gemütliches Nest mit viel Liebe zum Detail

  • 5 of 5

Zentraler kann man in Colmar kaum wohnen. Das Fachwerkhaus liegt an einem kleinen Platz am Rand der Fußgängerzone. Alles was man zum Leben braucht, gibts um die Ecke: Bäckerei, Lebensmittel, Restaurants, Geschäfte. Trotz des Trubels, der dort immer herrscht, ist es drinnen schön ruhig. Die Wohnung wurde von Künstlern mit viel Liebe zum Detail renoviert und eingerichtet und strahlt eine sehr ruhige Athmosphäre aus. Dabei kommt die Praxis nicht zu kurz: Küche und Bad sind mit allem ausgestattet, was man so braucht und im Bett lässt es sich hervorragend schlummern. Das Auto kann in einer verschlossenen Garagenbox etwa 5 Gehminuten vom Haus abgestellt werden. Besitzer eines großen SUVs sollten sich vorab erkundigen, ob's passt.

Javier ist ein hervorragender und sehr herzlicher Gastgeber, der uns mit vielen nützlichenTipps für Gastronomie und Aktivitäten in der Stadt und Region versorgte. Er ist als Ansprechpartner immer erreichbar.

Wir kommen gern wieder!

Tipp: Das alte Gemäuer besitzt natürlich keinen Aufzug und die Wendeltreppe, die zu Schlafzimmer und Bad rauf führt, ist sehr eng. Das sollte man beim Koffer packen bedenken.
