Situated in the middle of the Osenbach village, plenty of free parking space available nearby. A good traditional French bakery is just across the street where you can find tasty croissants, bread and some other basics. You will need a car to visit the nearby area. The cottage inside is just outstanding. The kitchen is fully equipped with cutlery, saucepans, American fridge freezer, coffee machines and anything you can think of. We were pleased with the 2 raclette machines. It is very child friendly and the owners have been very thoughtful providing essentials such as baby chair and even baby gates. The inside rooms are nicely done with a couple of beds downstairs, 3 rooms upstairs and a double bed in the loft, which our son much enjoyed. The rooms are modern and yet again with everything you may need. The hot tub is also great, clean and big enough for 4 people all together. It might be worth noting that elderly people, those with disabilities or limited mobility may find the stairs quite difficult as it is spread over 3 levels. However, there is a room just as you enter on the ground floor (but no bathroom) or if they can make it up 1 flight of stairs to the 1st floor, they will be able to access all the facilities they will need: there is a sofa bed, the open plan kitchen, the dining table and a very large bathroom and shower. The owners Bertrand and Gaëlle are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend their cottage.

Lovely walks, magnificent scenery and all you might want to do easy to get to. A boulangerie in the village and more shops only a few minutes drive away. Our stay over Christmas was fun shopping for our French Christmas dinner with a beautiful Bouche Noel from the specialist bakery in Soultzmatt and a lovely wrapped veal joint from the bucher in the same village. We felt very spoilt. We even picked our own mistletoe. This was a magical Christmas - a little snow would have made it even more perfect! Thank you Frederic and Simone for letting your beautiful house in Osenbach I am sure we will be back.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      This gite effectively consists of the front half of the first floor of a house. Entering next to the garage, a flight of steps leads to a well-equipped kitchen diner on a mezzanine floor above the garage. A few steps higher are the lounge, bedroom and bathroom and the lounge and bedroom have access to a west facing balcony, big enough to sit on and with views of the Vosges mountains between the rooftops over the road. Our welcoming hosts supplied a bottle of wine as well as various tourist literature. There is internet access and a TV showing French and German language terrestrial channels. There is no DVD player but we took one with us. The village is pretty with many attractive houses and an official floral village designation, but big enough to have a newsagent/tobacconist, a busy bakery and a bank with a multilingual cash machine, all by the church, plus a chemist in a different direction. The village is also for the most part very quiet although when there is sound, it carries, inside and out and we had to get used to somebody delivering newspapers on a noisy moped at 6am. The nearest supermarket, an Aldi, is by the nearest motorway junction only about 5 minutes' drive away and anything else you might reasonably want is in Colmar only a few minutes beyond that on the motorway. There are a variety of towns, museums and other attractions readily accessible, not only within Alsace but also the Black Forest area of south west Germany and northern Switzerland. We had no difficulty in filling our days for a fortnight's stay and we are not hikers. It helps if you know some French or German because English comes a poor third when it comes to information in most of the museums. We enjoyed our stay and would have liked to have been able to stay longer.
