BETWEEN STRASBOURG & COLMAR, WITH A MOUNTAIN VIEW ON HAUT KOENIGSBOURG CASTLE

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in La Vancelle - House of the 4 Travelers

Romantic & exclusive vacation rental - Elegant & stylish

Beautiful and comfortable apartment for 2/3 people newly refurbished with organic materials. On the first floor, facing south with a stunning view of the mountains and the famous medieval castle of Haut Koenigsbourg. Charming and luxury accommodation in any season.

Decoration is about forests and mountains, in homage to the original owner and builder of the house who was, until the 1930s, the forester of the Forest of La Vancelle.

Bedroom with king size double bed (180 x 200 cm). Also available with a twin bed layout upon prior request.

The two living rooms (living room and dining room) are en suite and exposed south. A extra traditional Alsatian bed is providing sitting space but also a comfortable extra bed for 1 grown-up child or adult. Magnificent panoramic view over the forest, the mountains and the castle of Haut Koenigsbourg on the horizon.

An independent bathroom and kitchen complete this cozy vacation rental apartment where you will relax after a day out.

Traditional style but modern comfort and tools: Our philosophy is to offer our guests, not only a roof and a bed but much more than that. And much more than what they would usually find in a self catering flat. Should we speak about restaurants, everybody would understand the difference between a fast food restaurant and a Michelin star restaurant. Both of them are providing meals. But ... different meals! We think that - especially for a longer stay (most of our guests are staying 7 nights and more) - it is not enough to 'survive' during the night but it is necessary to enjoy the stay in a place which is somehow of the same level as the historical surroundings, the landscape, the mountain and the vineyards: beautiful. We are proud to offer you some of the most beautiful vacation rentals available in Alsace and even in France. Places where you will like to spend and to enjoy some time.

We are a couple of tourism professionals having many years of experience in airline business and travels. Our private apartment is in the same house.

M. Jean-Paul Krebs purchased this apartment in 2009

The house was built in 1930 by the forester of the great forest of La Vancelle who wanted to make it the home for a well-deserved retirement. We renovated it in 2009 and designed 2 independant apartments in the same house.

One apartment is our private home.

The second one is available for your holidays.

La Vancelle is an exceptional site for those who wish to combine a restful holiday, relaxation with nature and discover the rich heritage of Alsace culture, history, wine and gastronomy.

This is why we have chosen that same spot for our personal residence.

A WONDERFUL RETREAT IN THE MOUNTAINS

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment is spacious and well-appointed with coffee, milk and orange juice so you can start the first day of your visit without a trip to the market. Everything you need for a comfy visit to Alsace is available in the apartment. The apartment was clean and well-maintained. The recommendations that Jean-Paul and Martine have for restaurants are excellent.
This apartment makes a great home base for trips throughout Alsace. You definitely need a car to travel to all the wonderful areas.
We enjoyed meeting Jean-Paul and Martine who live in the apartment below this one. They were terrific hosts for coffee and a glass of wine.
I highly recommend a visit to this property as well as the others managed by Jean-Paul and Martine. I stayed in another of their properties and returned because that one was so nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you Leona for sharing your experience. We have chosen this location for our private residence in Alsace because of its beautiful and peaceful surroundings and also because from la Vancelle it is easy get quickly to the Alsace wine route or the mountains but also to anywhere in Alsace (i.e. Strasbourg and Colmar) or even nearby Germany and Switzerland for a nice day out. As you say, here it is necessary to have a car. But the road, even in the winter when there are some snow or icy conditions, is well cleaned and maintained.
Welcome back any time!

COMFORTABLE APARTMENT, LOVELY VIEWS AND FINE FOOD

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was beautiful and very comfortable. Everything was clean and new. The owner, Jean Paul, speaks excellent English and couldn't have been more helpful, and the website for the property gave us all the information we needed. We had some lovely walks in the woods and round local villages, finding ruined castles and seeing exceptional views. The owner provided us with a map of local footpaths, which were well marked and easy to follow - we used it every day. There were many delightful villages within a short drive, with cafes and restaurants in abundance. The wine both in restaurants and supermarkets lived up to its reputation. We had a marvellous meal on the last night at the Restaurant Frankenbourg - a memorable experience!
The village of La Vancelle is very quiet and peaceful - not for holidaymakers who like to be in a bustling town! However there is a great variety of artistic, historical and natural attractions nearby, and the apartment is a great place to relax at the end of a busy day's sightseeing or walking.
It was a shame that there was no comfortable place to sit outside, and no washing machine - however, everything was brand new this year, and hopefully these small criticisms will have been put right by next summer.
It was a great holiday, and we would recommend both the apartment and the region - in fact we are hoping to return in the near future!

UN COCON À LA CAMPAGNE

  • 5 out of 5
Se réveiller face au château du Haut-Koenigsbourg dans une pièce baignée de soleil, c'est magique. Cet appartement très joliment décoré est un véritable cocon très confortable. l'environnement est agréable, situé dans un ravissant village de moyennes montagnes, entouré de forêts pour de grandes balades et à proximité immédiatement d'un étoilé "Michelin" qui ravira le palais des hôtes. Les propriétaires sont accueillants et intarissables sur leur région. Ils connaissent tous les bons endroits à voir ou revoir et on peut leur faire confiance pour le choix des tables à essayer. Nous y sommes restés une semaine sans jamais nous y ennuyer. Calme, confort et bonne chère, l'expérience est à renouveler. Une très agréable façon de bien commencer l'année.

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup d'avoir séjourné dans notre appartement du Randonneur. Situé à 400 mètres d'altitude, le village est exposé sud face au soleil et au... château du Haut-Koenigsbourg. Et même en hiver il fait souvent beau car nous sommes au-dessus des brumes et brouillards de la plaine.

La Vancelle is a pretty little Alsatian mountain village. It is situated in the woods, at an altitude of 430 meters, on the south side of the Vosges mountains. It is a sunny area with a fantastic panorama open to the south and the Haut Koenigsbourg medieval castle.

Located in the heart of Alsace but only minutes away from the motorway and the train station, it is a privileged spot for a wonderful holiday.
