La Maison Bleue Is an authentic Alsatian house, Both charming and convenient
If you are looking for an authentic experience, la Maison Bleue is the place to come. The home has modern conveniences, especially the kitchen, yet when you sit on the patio by the canal, watching the boatsand swans float by, You will feel you’re in a time gone by. Everything is clean and well cared for in the house, the garden is beautiful, and the cherry tomatoes delicious. Brigitte is helpful and picked us up at the train which is, however, only about a 15 minute walk to the house. Next-door is a good restaurant and another across the canal. The bathroom is not quite modern as the tub is too high, but the shower works well. Momoprix is a good grocery. From the train station, You can catch a bus to the villages, but get a schedule at the train station first to figure out the times. You can hop on and off the bus for one fare, so you see more than one village. This was preferable to us for two reasons: 1. no car rental needed 2. buses drive all around each village, so you can see them. Riquevihr also Has a little white tourist train that takes you into the vineyards above the village – splendid views.
In Colmar you can walk everywhere in the Old town and Petite Venise. We are an active retired couple but were able to navigate this trip without a guide, tour, or a car. One week is enough time here in Colmar and the villages. We flew into Zürich from the US.
Fantastic location, apartment, owners!
As other reviews have indicated, this is a wonderful property in a marvelous location. The lovely Brigitte and Christian met us at the train station, which is not a long walk from the Maison Bleu but since it was raining when we arrived, this was a real benefit!
The location really can't be beaten. It's wonderful to be staying in one of the 15th-century Petite Venise houses that all the tourists are taking pictures of. There is a pretty fountain outside the front door and a canal behind the apartment, on which boats filled with tourists float by. Despite being right in the midst of things (two restaurants are right next to the apartment), it was much quieter than we expected, and felt quite private, which was very nice when we settled down in the garden for a glass of wine in the evenings.
Brigitte and Christian were wonderful hosts, and even located a fan for us to use in the bedroom at night, since it was hot when we arrived. My wife and I had a truly magical stay here and would happily go back!
MERCI mille fois pour votre gentille appréciation qui nous touche beaucoup !
A une autre fois peut-être ???
Beautiful traditional home
Maison Blue is a pretty, traditional home with a private courtyard overlooking the canal. Christian and Brigitte met us when we arrived and showed us round this well equipped and very comfortable apartment. It’s situated in the perfect position to explore Colmars old town and canals with it’s beautiful buildings, many restaurants and shops. It’s the ideal base to explore the Alsace Wine Route and surrounding villages, also it’s only a short drive to the Black Forest.
Christian and Brigitte are the perfect hosts and are only a phone call away should you need any help or advice, we would highly recommend the Maison Blue and will hopefully go back and stay there again in the future
All the comforts of home in the perfect location!
La Maison Bleue, what a special place! You have at your disposal a fully equipped, ground-floor apartment in a historic building that is located at the edge of the historic center of Colmar, right on one of Colmar's beautiful canals. Plus, outside your apartment and along the canal you have your own backyard/courtyard space for eating, sunning, or just enjoying the flowers. The apartment is fully equipped with everything you will need to prepare your own meals, including necessary staples such as salt and pepper, cooking oil, coffee, and so on........(My only pet peeve was that there was no really sharp knife.) Plus, you even have a clothes washer and dishwasher at your disposal, should you need either. There is plenty of room for sitting and relaxing, watching tv, or taking advantage of the free wifi. The bedroom is sparsely furnished, but adequate and with a comfortable bed. The bedroom is, however, located on the street side of the apartment so noise from the street may be a bother to some; it wasn't an issue for us. Parking was/is a bit problematic, but available. The pay to park spaces in front of the apartment are generally available, but the maximum time for advance payment is two hours, thus you have to feed the meter several times a day; still not all that expensive and not a horrible bother, especially since there is no charge from 1200 until 1400. We were told that free parking can generally be found in the area for those who are diligent.
Brigitte and Christian Kempf are perfect hosts; they meet you and explain everything, and then check to see you off when you leave. I might add that there is a very fine and reasonably priced restaurant and butcher shop right next door, and that there is a woderful boulangerie/patisserie around the corner. In essence, we simply loved La Porte Blue and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Colmar.
The most charming place in Colmar
La maison bleue was the perfect place to stay in Colmar. Brigitte and her husband were present for our arrival, giving us a ride both from and to the train (equipped with a car seat for our two-year-old son). There were toys available for our toddler to play with, and the ground-floor apartment was easily accessible and safe for our son. They discreetly dropped off a second set of linens and towels halfway through our three-week stay and even included a second set of toys for our son to play with. When we left, Brigitte had knitted our son a hat and brought him a little fire truck to take with him.
The apartment itself and comfortable and well stocked. It feels larger than it is and is divided well, complete with a private outdoor space with a little garden. We looked out the kitchen window to see swans, ducks, and fish in the canal in the mornings. Everyone stops at the bridge to see La Petite Venice, so you feel like you're the local and everyone else is passing by. The Covered Market (open Tues–Sat) was a four-minute walk away, and walking around the town itself was the best part of the trip. The little green train that tours the town is well-worth the 30-minute tour, and the local shopping is fun and charming.
This place very quickly became a home away from home, we would gladly return.
Dear family Neaton,
a great thank for your a big thank you for your kind and good appreciation of our apartment "de la maison bleue".
The best of wishes for the future and much joy with your lovely Connor !
Very kind regards.
In the midst of everything
La Maison Bleue puts you in the midst of La Petite Venise, the colorful and historic center of Colmar, which itself is situated in the center of Alsace, with villages, cities, castles and abbeys in easy driving distance. The covered market, shops and restaurants are all close at hand. Spacious and photogenic, the apartment embraces a charming garden and patio, perfect for enjoying your glass of local white wine, while watching the little boats go by on the river. La Maison Bleue, which comes well equipped and as described, is graciously presented by your helpful host, with whom all correspondence is easy and smooth. Besides the oft frequented villages of Riquewihr, Kayserberg and Turkheim, we recommend Bergheim, Obernai, Munster and Neuf Brisach, as well as the spectacular raptor bird show by the castle at Kintzheim. Strasbourg, a 30-minute train trip away, is certainly worth a visit or two. We recommend particularly a fall or spring vacation and do ask you host for the free parking map.
