Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Colmar Area, France, Your Home Away From Home

By staying in self catering accommodation in the Colmar area, you will have access to a good number of places to visit, as well as some exciting activities to participate in.

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

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.
