Notes:
New! Trained to well-being massage Tibetan bowls, I can offer this service within the house. Thus you will enjoy in peace this moment of serenity, without having to move. The bowls are placed on you and you can feel their vibrations perform a reharmonization, the rhythm of different sounds that follow. This massage is done dressed which is very comfortable because you keep your clothes on you. Rates: 35 € per half hour (3 bowls that are moved to different parts of the body) and 60 € per hour (7 bowls that are placed on the 7 chakras and are not moved during the session. This session is very enveloping and very relaxing). Booking preferably before the stay. Otherwise depending on availability. Also: relaxation session with Tibetan bowls (the bowls are not placed on you, but are placed on the ground). Several people can participate. Looking forward to a moment of shared serenity

Very nice location, warmly decorated. Had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this gîte. The host is very friendly and accommodating. The home itself has everything we were looking for. A charming and very well restored 17-18th century Alsatian house.

Amazing place, wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

My family filled this lovely cottage with 6 adults plus our energetic grandchildren, and it was such a delight to stay there. It is truly wonderful and authentically rustic, with every detail in period furniture or regional touches.Their renovation of this beautiful cottage was truly amazing. On the practical side, it could not have been more comfortable, and very spacious with plenty of storage area. Annie was a great communicator, responding quickly and thoroughly to every question or concern. Her hospitality and welcome were genuine, with sparkling wine and cake for us and cookies and cider for the children. Besides being charming, the cottage had great amenities such as a cosmic coffee maker that also heated tea water and made toast, and a dishwasher that was very efficient. We loved the location too! Pffafenheim was lovely and quiet. We walked to the bakery a few doors down for our morning rolls and to the restaurant about 10-15 minutes walk for a delicious dinner. Our hike around the local vineyards was educational and beautiful, and we enjoyed buying wine at the local winery. Our trips to the other wonderful Alsatian villages were delightful and easy. The cottage does have stairs for entering and for getting to the upstairs bedrooms and baths, but the pictures of the cottage show those clearly and we had no problem with them. There are two great bedrooms and a WC on the first level. I could continue to rave about how wonderful the cottage,the village and Annie were, but suffice it to say we couldn't have enjoyed it more.

Excellent séjour dans cette maison de village typiquement Alsacienne (excepté l’escalier d'intérieur), parfait pour 2 familles avec enfants. Annie reste très attentive au confort de ses locataires avec pleines de délicates attentions notamment pour les enfants. A une très prochaine fois pour une autre occasion...

Sehr gemütlich

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben mit 6 Personen eine sehr schöne Zeit in im Elsass verlebt und waren mit der Unterkunft sehr zufrieden. Die große Wohnung bietet wunderbar Platz für alle, die Küche und Esszimmer sind perfekt ausgestattet. Die Bäder sind groß und das Sahnehäubchen ist die Einmannsauna! Das ganze Haus ist sehr liebevoll renoviert und gestaltet und hat viel Athmosphäre. Lediglich ältere Personen oder Familien, die mit kleineren Kindern reisen, müssen ggf. bei der recht steilen (aber gut gebauten!) Treppe in das obere Stockwerk etwas aufpassen. Die Wohnung liegt außerdem sehr ruhig mitten in dem kleinen Ort und man kann gleich vom Haus aus in die Weinberge loswandern. Wir haben uns ausgesprochen wohl gefühlt. Der kleine Ort Pfaffenheim bietet zwar keine Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, aber eine Bäckerei mit köstlichem Brot und Brötchen - 3 Fußminuten von der Wohnung entfernt. Die Gastgeberin hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen und außerdem mit köstlichen "Langhoupf" am Sonntag verwöhnt. Wir können die Unterkunft nur weiter empfehlen

You are at the heart of a vineyard, on the Wine Route, and you can attend many village festivals and traditional local attractions.

Above the house (accessible on foot after crossing the vineyard) is the massif of Schauenberg and the sanctuary Notre Dame, where you can eat on reservation. It is also a high place of pilgrimage, and a High Energy where many dowsers and hypnotists come every year. You will discover a magnificent view across the valley Alsace and the Black Forest.

From the cottage, following the marked trails, you can stroll through the vineyards on foot and by bicycle, or enjoy the forest and its many hiking trails.

In summer a little train you walk through the vineyards, from village to village, and offers gourmet stops to taste the local specialties while narrating the history and local customs of the places visited. Pfaffenheim is one of these villages.

In winter you can visit the Christmas markets around and among the most famous (Colmar, Kaysersberg, Turckeim, Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr, etc ...) and make a torchlight procession from the cottage.

In the house you will find all the necessary documentation at your leisure, depending on your needs (several languages), and I am also available before and during your stay to help you.
