Christmas in a cosy idyllic Alsace chalet

5 of 5
This beautiful wood chalet has everything you could need, fabulous interior and exterior decor, warm floors, every convenience is thought of. Lovely walks, magnificent scenery and all you might want to do easy to get to. A boulangerie in the village and more shops only a few minutes drive away. Our stay over Christmas was fun shopping for our French Christmas dinner with a beautiful Bouche Noel from the specialist bakery in Soultzmatt and a lovely wrapped veal joint from the bucher in the same village. We felt very spoilt. We even picked our own mistletoe. This was a magical Christmas - a little snow would have made it even more perfect! Thank you Frederic and Simone for letting your beautiful house in Osenbach I am sure we will be back.

Alsace holiday

4 of 5
This was our first visit to the Alsace region, flying to Basel and travelling on to Turckheim. This was an ideal centre to explore the Alsace wine route and the delightful villages as far as Strasbourg where we used the Park and Ride to catch a tram into the centre of the city. Turckheim itself it the most interesting place, full of character and we particularly enjoyed the festivities of the opening of the daily advent calendar and later visiting the Hotel de Ville for mulled wine and chocolate! The cottage was ideal in terms of its position in the village (with parking for a small car) and both cosy and comfortable. The stairs might prove a challenge for those not fit and able. Martine was most helpful bringing us a traditional christmas brioche to celebrate St Nicholas. There are good walks in the vicinity both around the village and further afield.
