This apartment has very large rooms and furniture is good. It would be fine using the sofa bed for an extra couple. There are windows in each room with nice views down to the streets on either side. However it is quite dark and the lighting is very inadequate. Bathroom good. The separate toilet room, like many in Europe, is very small and enclosed with no window. Stephane was very pleasant and helpful and I would recommend his apartment.

It was located in a wonderful village, within walking distance of Riquewihr and Ribeauville and only short car drives from other places of interest. Hunawihr itself was a quiter location which we appreciated and it had a handful of good restaurants and a local bakery/store for small shopping items and fresh croissants. The house itself was larger than we expected and was really well furnished, and renovated and we loved that it had a garden too. Frank was really helpful and a lovely host, very accommodating given we were very late to arrive. We would certainly recommend this property and the location.
