Why Martine chose Colmar

I have created my Holiday rentals in 2011. My Alsatian house is located in my favorite place of Colmar : the so romantic and magical Little Venice district.

I have chosen to renovate these house keeping the Alsatian style and spirit : my apartments are decorated with Alsatian colors, old furniture, antiques, original paintings of Alsatian artists....

What makes this apartment unique

Perfect location in the old city, close to all shops, monuments, restaurants, Christmas markets. Close to the railway station (10-15 minutes walk). Beautiful Alsatian decoration (antiques, Alsatian furniture by artist JC Pioget, paintings by David Grandmaire).

CNN states Colmar as one of the 7 most beautiful villages of Europe ! Colmar is rather a small city (67000 inhabitants) with the charm of a village. French and German influences commingle in this well-preserved Alsatian village, where local bakeries sell both croissants and kugelhopf, and restaurants specialize in foie gras and sauerkraut (or choucroute). A range of architectural styles, from German Gothic to French Neo-Baroque, can be spotted in the old town, which was spared destruction during World War II—thanks in part to the historical beauty of its cobblestoned lanes, quiet canals, and half-timbered houses.

Our Alsatian house divided into 3 apartments is located in the most beautiful and romantic place of Colmar : The Little Venice, in the old city, close to all shops, typical restaurants, historic monuments, museums... Our house on Poissonnerie street is a postcard-perfect place, with view over the river and the half-timbered houses.

Colmar : maybe the most beautiful city of Alsace ? Colmar is located half-way from Strasbourg and Mulhouse, and close to The Vosges, it's the perfect place to stay to visit Alsace. Located in 'The road of wines', Colmar is only a few kilometers from beautiful villages such as Kaysersberg, Riquewihr, Ribeauvillé and Eguisheim. Colmar is a city full of history, with typical and romantic places such as 'The Little Venice', great museums such as Unterlinden, magnificent monuments and alsacian houses... It's also the city of gastronomie : you will find many high quality typical restaurants (winstubs) in Colmar but also gastronomic French restaurants, and many vineyards to visit (and taste) around Colmar.

colmar charmer

  • 5 of 5

my wife and I could not have been more pleased with our stay in Colmar. This locale was ideally located and Martine was a wonderful host. The flat was very comfy with all of the amenities one could need. We would strongly recommend this to any and all.

A Great Place to Stay in a Beautiful City

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our two-day stay in Colmar, France, at this cute apartment!!! The owners were very nice to us and tried to make our stay easy and convenient, even though we did not speak the same language. We came by train and our host even picked us up and brought us to the place, saving us a fifteen minute walk with our luggage. The apartment was good for us as we brought our adult daughter along and she had a separate sleeping area from our bedroom. When my camera ran out of battery and I did not have an adapter for my charger, our hosts brought one for me. That was above and beyond what they needed to do, but made it so that I could take pictures in Colmar and the rest of my European vacation. There is a wonderful market nearby where we got our breakfasts and lots of great restaurants nearby, as well. So glad we stayed here!

Charming, like the town of Colmar

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in the Boatman Suite! It was quaintly decorated, in keeping with the location in Petite Venise. We could walk everywhere and shop for food at stalls in the nearby covered market. Martine and Phillipe were very gracious, meeting us upon our arrival and showing us how everything worked. Colmar itself served both as a destination and a home base for several day trips, so the location was ideal. When we had an issue with the wifi, it was resolved within the day, while we were out. All in all, it was good value for money. We would definitely recommend this rental!

Great apartment in the heart of Little Venice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the second-floor apartment for 2 weeks. Perfect location - right in the middle of Little Venice. The apartment was well equipped. We’ve found everything we needed. All necessary shops close by. Elevator very useful for heavy luggage. Fast WiFi. Colmar is great location to drive around and visit beautiful little towns of Alsace or bigger Basel and Strasbourg. When you are with kids you can go to close by Europa Park or Le Parc du Petit Prince.

Very nice contact with the owner – Nathalie was always very helpful, always quick response to any questions. Everything as promised. We would highly recommend the apartment.

Apartment N°2 'La Chambre du Batelier'

  • 3 of 5

I will start with the positives. The location is very good. The apartment had adequate space and was clean, orderly and in good condition. Care was taken with the decor. The elevator was helpful for getting luggage up and down. The owner greeted us on time and assisted bringing our luggage from the car.

On the downside, we did not have the option of the garage as we expected, although you would need to have a very small car and be an excellent parker to use the available garage. We were a bit surprised when we were told we would be charged extra for sheets if we used the fold out lounge, as we had booked and paid for an apartment that slept 4. There were two of us. No discount for that. No other apartment owners had done this.

Also when I pointed out that the wardrobe door in the bedroom was broken, the owner said, "Well don't use it". No discount for that, but addition for sheets.

It was very hot during our stay and the tiny fan was ineffective, but at least the windows could be left open at night, and the noise from the restaurant below wasn't too bad.

The washing machine worked but had no dryer. We had to hang our washing around the apartment to dry.

Overall, I would describe the apartment as adequate.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment. I hope that in spite of these little inconveniences you have enjoyed your stay in our wonderful region. France was unfortunately facing an usual heat wave when you came, everybody was suffering from the high temperatures. Yes, the restaurant close to the apartment is very quiet : it's the famous gastronomic restaurant belonging to the great star chef Jean-Yves Schillinger. The previous guests had broken the lock of the wardrobe door (I didn't see it before you arrive) but of course you could still use it, it was just impossible to lock it. And there are 3 more wardrobes in the apartment that could be locked. There is a drying rack fixed on the wall in the bathroom, but no drying machine. The price offer was made for 2 persons, not 4. There is only one garage for 3 apartments. You made the choice not to book it when you have booked your apartment and another guest booked it.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Nathalie's house on Landeck Street. We stayed during the Christmas markets. We had a wonderful stay! We had two different apartments and both were extremely clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The location to explore Colmar is perfect and many fabulous restaurants are within a few blocks from the house. I would highly recommend renting from Nathalie.
