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!

Reizender Rückzugsort im Herzen von Colmar

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Osterfeiertage 2017 in Colmar verbracht. Leider waren die Stadt voller Menschen und das Wetter recht bescheiden. Dennoch haben wir unseren Kurzurlaub sehr genossen, was nicht zuletzt an der überaus charmanten Unterkunft im BOIS & VELOURS lag. In den vergangenen Jahren haben wir zahlreiche Ferienwohnungen und –häuser gemietet und so einen guten Vergleichsmaßstab: Ein derart liebevoll restauriertes und eingerichtetes Appartement haben wir bisher noch nicht vorgefunden, an dieser Stelle daher allen Beteiligten unser ganz großes Kompliment dafür, einen so reizenden Rückzugsort geschaffen zu haben. Hier kann man ohne weiteres auch mal einen verregneten Nachmittag verbringen! Die Lage des BOIS & VELOURs ist obendrein auch noch großartig. Direkt am Eingang zur reizenden Fußgängerzone gelegen, befindet man sich aus der Hautüre tretend mitten in der Stadt und erreicht mit wenigen Schritten alle Sehenswürdigkeiten und dutzende Bars und Restaurants, besser geht es im Grunde nicht. Dennoch sei gesagt: Wo Licht ist, ist auch Schatten, Vorsicht ist bei der Anreise mit dem Auto bis direkt vor die Haustüre geboten, denn wenige Parkmöglichkeiten und ein Einbahnstraßengewirr machen dieses Manöver spannend! Wir empfehlen das BOIS & VELOURS an Alleinreisende oder Paare ohne Kinder, die vor einer steilen Wendeltreppe nicht zurückschrecken, uneingeschränkt weiter.

Mit herzlichsten Grüßen an Javier, den guten Hausgeist

Wunderschöne Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Tage zwischen Weihnachten und Silvester in dieser wunderschönen Wohnung verbracht. Die Wohnung liegt mitten in der Innenstadt, ist zauberhaft eingerichtet und etwas ganz Besonderes. Alles war tadellos sauber, Javier ist ein wundervoller Vermieter, beinahe wie ein Freund.

Wir kommen wieder und haben unseren Freunden die Wohnung wärmstens empfohlen.

Beste Grüße von

Natalja und Jürgen
