Quiet, relaxing getaway location
My family really enjoyed our long weekend in the beautiful Alsace region of France. La Maison Bleue is located in the quiet, picturesque village of Saint Nabor. The cottage was cozy, clean, and nicely decorated. We were greeted with a warm welcome from the owner. She also gave us recommendations of places to go. One of them being a gluten free bakery in Obernai! My son is trying to convince us to return again just to eat more french pastries. The kitchen was well stocked, and perfect for a vacation. The owners made sure firewood was always available for the fireplace.
Saint Nabor itself does not have any restaurants or shops, but within a few minutes you can drive to several in the nearby towns. We enjoyed hiking around the Mont Saint Odile Monastery, we also hiked several trails to explore the Chateau Spesburg and Chateau d'Andlau. La Maison Bleue is perfect if you want to take day trips to Strasbourg, Obernai, or Colmar.
Compleet ingericht huisje in charmant dorpje
We zijn vanuit het Schwarzwald twee nachten in Saint Nabor geweest. Deze tijd hebben we gebruikt enkele charmante dorpjes te bezoeken zoals Ribeauvillé, Colmar en Obernai, maar het hoofddoel was Straatsburg. De interessante mengeling van Duits en Frans wordt treffend weergegeven door het beeld op de Place de la Republique in Straatsburg.
Het huisje is heel compleet ingericht. De bedden waren wat zacht, maar dat is natuurlijk een persoonlijke voorkeur.
A cosy, well-equipped gîte
La Maison Bleue is immaculately presented and well-equipped. It is compact, but was perfect for three adults and a Labrador. It is very comfortable and easy to care for, with hard flooring throughout. We particularly appreciated the excellent kitchen, with a fan oven and induction hob, as we catered for ourselves throughout the week. We had glorious weather (more like high summer than early Spring) so were able to make good use of the terrace and garden. Madame Riche and her family were away when we visited, but she had made arrangements for us to collect the key when we arrived and for the housekeeper to see us off when we left.
The gîte lies at the foot of Mount Saint Odile and is less than 200m from the Urlosenholz Wood, with way-marked footpaths good for walking, running and mountain-biking. There are numerous walks in the local area, with several suggested circuits around the next door village of Heiligenstein and, just a short drive away, at Le Hohwald. The village is conveniently placed for excursions to Obernai, Colmar and Strasbourg and is surrounded by vineyards offering wine tastings.
Saint-Nabor itself has no shop or restaurant but there are restaurants and a well-stocked Proxi convenience store and boulangerie in Ottrott (less than 1km away) and a Leclerc supermarket in Obernai (on the Boulevard de l’Europe). Guests travelling from Britain with pets might find it useful to know that we found an English-speaking vet in Obernai (Clinique Vétérinaire Brabants at 5 rue Murner).
Warm & welcoming: Gîte le Maison Bleu, St. Nabor
Wonderful! In spite of unfortunate weather, we enjoyed our week stay at this lovely gîte. The cottage is perfectly clean and very cute. The surrounding garden is absolutely immaculate; certainly looked after with great care. The owners are a lovely, warm family. My young kids played well with the two little girls, sharing toys and interacting with no problem. When we realized that the weather report we had read prior to leaving was highly inaccurate (!), Emmanuelle was nice enough to offer to wash our laundry so that we could rewear our warmer clothing due to the unusually soggy weather.
We made numerous half-day trips, and the entire area we saw was peaceful, adorable, and so tidy! Emmanuelle speaks good English and can make suggestions for activities. Our itinerary included Obernai, Montagne des Singes (Barbary monkey reserve with wonderful cafe and playground facilities), le Palais du Pain d'épices (gingerbread museum and workshop), Cité du Train (excellent train museum) and wandering in the nearby vineyards. Cannot say much about restaurants, since we don't often eat out with three young kids, but there are weekly markets throughout the area (ask Emmanuelle) offering quality produce and prepared foods (perfect for small meals back at the cottage or picnics). Ditto on the wine, but locally produced wine is available at the MANY wineries in these beautiful villages.
Overall, I'd recommend this place for a group of four or fewer people. Great location and very nice people. Thank you, Emmanuelle!
Hello Andrea and all the family!
Thank you so much for your kindness. It was such a pleasure to see the kids playing all together in the garden!
Hope to see you soon.
Bons baisers de France à nos amis américains.
Emmanuelle et toute la famille!
Sehr gemütliches kleines Haus
Ein kleines aber sehr gemütliches Haus in einem netten kleinen Ort. Man kann von hier aus schöne Ausflüge durch die Weinberge, in die Berge oder auch nach Straßburg machen. Für uns (3 Personen und ein Dackel) waren es zwei schöne und ruhige Urlaubswochen. Wenn es abends etwas kälter wurde, war es ein Highlight, den Kamin anzuheizen. Auch ansonsten fehlt es an nichts, was man im Urlaub braucht. Die Vermieter, die nebenan wohnen, sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
