Make a holiday rental apartment or villa for self-catering accommodation holidays in Haut-Rhin,France your home away from home

The Haut-Rhin in the Lorraine, is an incredible historic province in eastern France your home away from home. Haut-Rhin means that it is in the upper Rhine area, whereas the nearby Bas-Rhin is the lower Rhine region. The population in the area is ranked 28th in all of France, thus you can see that it’s not very heavily populated. The countryside is marked by hilly land throughout. The economy is steered by the fact that it is the locale of the Peugeot factory, thus it has the lowest unemployment rate, and its people are wealthy.

Places to visit on holiday to Haut-Rhin

Mulhouse is one of the cities in the Haut-Rhin, and it is heavily industrialized as well as commercialized due to the automobile production. However it is also the location of the Université de Haute-Alsace, which has a truly beautiful campus.

However nearby Colmar has magnificent historical architecture because it is a very ancient frontier town. There you will be treated to cobble streets and of course the plentiful half-timbered buildings that not only date back to the Middle Ages but also to the Renaissance period. Green, blue, orange and red are extremely prominent on the outside of its buildings, which gives the street a distinct appearance as well as creating a festive feeling. You will delight walking from one market stand to another of course, and because you are in a self-catering accommodation, you can bring in the local produce to make yourself a sumptuous meal! Also remember that Colmar is situated directly within the Alsace premier wine-producing region called the Route des Vins, which translates to Road of Wines!

The Haut-Rhin's dialects, architecture as well as its cuisine all exemplify the manner in which the area has take on board both German as well as French characteristics. In a lovely village known as Turckheim, you can witness a time-honoured practice of seeing their night watchman, who is of course dressed the required traditional clothing, walking its streets at 10 PM and halting at each corner he arrives at in order to sing.

Fantastic location with a great view!

4 of 5
Loved the location; loved the garden and loved the property. The only negative is the size of the double bedroom i.e. very small and the size and quality of the double bed. The bed is a small double and it creaked whenever one of us moved! The style of the chalet is traditional and there are great views from the veranda and pretty garden. The location was great in so far as the chalet is close to the Vosges mountains but also only 30/40 minutes drive away from Colmar and the wine growing area. We had a dog with us and he really enjoyed the garden and the local walks. We really enjoyed our stay in Alsace. It's a beautiful area and if you enjoy wine and walking its a perfect place for a holiday!
