Robin and Joelle were particularly welcoming and provided lots of useful ideas on what to do and where to go. The house is around 20 minutes walk into the main village but there is an excellent restaurant just a couple of minutes away. Great terrace with a Weber BBQ and good shading for those sunny breakfasts and evenings. We will use this as a base when we next explore the Alsace as we liked it so much and it is in such a good location.

A short journey in any direction brings you to charming old world villages/towns. In addition Mulhouse is close and well worth a visit: car museum, zoo, railway museum. Cross the border to Germany or Switzerland to soak up neighbouring culture and compare the differences in the Countries. We thoroughly recommend the cottage to you and hope you find it, and the area, as charming as we did.
