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)

The apartment has everything you might require to have a comfortable stay. The kitchen was well equipped should you wish to prepare meals. The living area and bedroom very comfortable and extremely clean. We where permitted access to a small outside garden area at the rear of the property. We stayed for 3 nights and with so much to do and see in the immediate vicinity Madame Conrads property is well located with easy access to major roads to Colmar & Kaisersberg. This was our first visit to the Alsace region and we are already discussing our return next year however for a longer stay. I would highly recommend Madame Conrads property excellent value for money with a personal touch from someone who cares for their guests. Thank you so much for a wonderful short holiday and we look forward to staying again next year. Simon & Ute
