It was lovely and cozy, so cute with it decorations of gingerbread men,hearts, toadstools etc. The outside space is gorgeous, a pity we could not make the most of it due to the weather. The underfloor heating kept us lovely and cozy and the kitchen had everything we needed. It was very clean and tidy. Plenty of room for us. The family who own it are on hand and very helpful with knowledge of the area. They booked us a table at a lovely restaurant for lunch for the day after we arrived. We would recommend Alsace as a place to visit, very pretty. The view from the chalet over Osenbach was stunning. Some nice walks too. As I said the only thing that was a problem was the weather, but we made the most of it, and enjoyed snuggling down in the coziness of the chalet when it was very bad. We would certainly recommend it.

Owners very helpful, meeting us on arrival. Area has loads of cycling and walking options in addition to sightseeing opportunities. One highlight was seeing the storks nesting on buildings in the centre of Munster. Gilg patisserie worth several visits.
