Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Colmar, France, Your Home Away From Home

The French city of Colmar can be found within the Alsace region, to the far north-east of the country. The city’s greatest claim to fame is that it was the home town of the famous sculptor, Frederic Bartholdi, who designed the Statue of Liberty. Colmar was also once the home of Martin Schongauer, a renowned painter and engraver. In present days, most visitors looking to spend their holidays in Colmar are drawn by its many cultural and historical attractions, to be found mainly within its extensive and well preserved ‘Old Town’. There is a good choice of self catering holiday rental accommodation available within the city, mainly in form of townhouses and apartments, set within some of its most gracious buildings.

Things to Do on Holiday in Colmar, France

The mainly rural and unspoilt landscape which surrounds Colmar means that walking, hiking, cycling and horse-riding are especially popular outdoor pursuits. The more active and energetic may alternatively wish to head to the Vosges Mountains, to the west of the city, where group abseiling and rock-climbing can be enjoyed. Tourists spending their holidays in Colmar in the winter months will find that there are a number of ski-resorts to be found within this mountain range, with slopes suitable for all abilities and experience levels. Other popular outdoor pursuits to be enjoyed within the Colmar region include kayaking and freshwater angling in the nearby Rhine and its tributaries.

The city also boasts numerous historic churches and religious buildings, to include the 13th century Eglise Saint-Martin, which contains numerous Gothic and Renaissance-style sculptures and Couvert des Antonins, which now houses one of the Alsace region’s most extensive collections of paintings, artefacts and sculptures within the renowned Unterlinden Museum.

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.
