It is also very close to the German and Swiss border making both countries really easy to visit without driving for hours

Whilst they did not really speak any english, they appreciated that my french was not great and spoke slower or were happy to repeat things or explain them differently. Malou is looking to start an English course this winter I believe. The property is like new and was very clean. On the Sunday morning they presented us with bread, croissants and some of Coco's delicious home made jams as we would not have had time to get anything in to eat. Coco and Malou checked regularly that everything was ok and gave us advice on where to visit either by car or by bike (we took bikes with us). We were told about special bike tracks down the valley which were traffic free and not too hilly. This area of the Alsace is beautiful and there are many places to visit all within an hours drive - again our host's advice was invaluable for example telling us about Le Lac Vert (the green lake) and the nearby mountain restaurant which was all beautiful. You are situated between beautiful towns of the southern Alsace including Colmar, Eguisheim, Riquewihr and Ribeauville - all of them both historic and extremely picturesque. As you get back to the property, Coco and Malou would take genuine interest in how our day had gone and we really appreciated the little touches such as occasional aperitifs if we were all around in the early evening (and we also got to sample the new batch of Mirabelle jam!). We recommend a stay chez Coco et Malou very highly. John and Angela (Lancashire, England)

Communication was quick and friendly. It is a challenge finding the apartment, the names of which are inside the lift (took some time to realise this after scouring the lobby and stairs) I hadn't printed out the details and didn't get access on my phone until logged onto the building wifi so make sure you keep all the instructions-you will need them. Location was very central, loads of shops and bars close by but this did make it noisy if the windows were open. Paid for the garage option which was very close but difficult to drive to with several roads being closed for repair on top of the confusing one way system and pedestrianised streets. The kitchen although appeared to be clean could have done with a "deep clean". The sink needed bleaching but overall cleanliness good. Comfortable beds and good linen, Couple of curtains were off the rails which although minor, should have been spotted. Only one shower worked. Reported the fault and a representative called quickly but he was unable to fix the shower during our stay. The en suite bedroom had a small tub with hand held shower head but not easily accessed if you have mobility problems. No wardrobe in the ensuite bedroom? Why as this the master bedroom? The only space was a small cupboard near the front door. Grabbing clothes in the hall is difficult when you are holidaying with others. Would have been preferable to place a wardrobe just outside the bedroom door rather than a table. The TV was huge but there was only one English speaking channel which was a continual loop of news. I know we were in France but this type of rental appeals to all travellers so a mix of foreign TV programmes would be a bonus.Attention to detail required inside the apartment, considering we are talking luxury prices and trying to attract visitors from other countries. However overall a very good stay in a roomy, airy apartment close to everything you need in a beautiful town that I am missing already.
