Secluded apartment with old-world charm in heart of Colmar. Private terrace and parking highlights.

5 of 5
This apartment exudes old-world charm. When entering the building you are led up two flights of dark wood staircase, with period piece fireplace on landing. Once into the apartment, there is a long hallway, with lovely wooden ceiling and antique look wardrobes, piano and other fixtures. There are two bedrooms. The main one doubles as a sitting room, with a good sized HD TV (2 other rooms have TV also). There is a good sized kitchen, with oven, a good sized fridge freezer, a microwave, old style sink and all the cutlery, crockery and utensils that you will need. The bathroom has a deep bath but much more useful, a good shower cubicle. A washing machine is available and space for drying. The toilet is in the last room. All rooms are clean and tidy. A key feature of this apartment is the water side terrace, which you have private use of. We had breakfasts there and some evening self cooked meals, on the hotplate that was provided. It felt quite private, but in the morning be aware that tourist boats go past from about 10 onwards. The private parking was a must for us, as we drove over from the UK. The apartment is within the family's business compound, so we has assured parking, plus being locked behind a big gate at night, but we had keys to get out if we wanted. Our impression of the apartment was very positive. It had all the mod cons we needed and was in the middle of old Colmar. Vincent and his Mother were very nice to us and provided a lovely welcome pack of local produce. If we come to the Alsace again, we will be trying to stay here again.

Clean and modern, very comfortable

4 of 5
Very comfortable, clean and modern house in a quiet suburb of Colmar. 15-20 minute walk to town centre. 30minute walk to railway station. Rodrigue is very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our welcome Kugelhopf. Colmar is beautiful as are some of the surrounding villages. The Vosges mountains are easily accessible by car and have beautiful scenery. Strasbourg easily accessible by car or train. Highly recommended.
