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.

Things to do in Haut-Rhin

In Mulhouse, there are a tremendous amount of museums to visit and the Université de Haute-Alsace deals heavily in art, so that there are many artists to be found in Mulhouse and art houses are everywhere. While walking, hiking, biking and even the riding of horses is possible throughout the Haut-Rhin area, do not forget that not only is there wine here aplenty but the restaurants have incredible French cooking, making your holidays in Haut-Rhin absolutely gastronomically special.

Weather in Haut-Rhin

The weather offers what you would expect from much ofEuropewhich is hot summers and cold winters. Depending where you are from though, these are rarely extreme enough to cause any concern. Dressing appropriately for the season—light clothes in the summer and warm coat in the winter—will ensure comfort.

Travel to Haut-Rhin

You may take a plane from London’s Gatwick to Strasbourg which is actually only 490 km or one hour away from Paris by plane, The Strasbourg-Entzheim International Airport is only 10 km from the centre of the Strasbourg town. It is also possible to arrive to Haut-Rhin by taking the Channel Tunnel and then France’s wonderful and very efficient trains; the TGV. Depending on what you wish to see, you may also drive there, using one of the ferry ports such as Dieppe, Calais or Dunkirk. A hire car may not even be a necessity in the town of Strasbourg.

Lovely property

5 of 5
This is a compact holiday home that, when inside, did not seem that small probably down to the careful attention to furniture and fittings which are all very modern and new. Robin and Joelle were particularly welcoming and provided lots of useful ideas on what to do and where to go. The house is around 20 minutes walk into the main village but there is an excellent restaurant just a couple of minutes away. Great terrace with a Weber BBQ and good shading for those sunny breakfasts and evenings. We will use this as a base when we next explore the Alsace as we liked it so much and it is in such a good location.

Peace on Earth

5 of 5
Merxheim is quiet and ideal if you are looking for a restful holiday with excellent hosts in Yvan and Brigitte. A short journey in any direction brings you to charming old world villages/towns. In addition Mulhouse is close and well worth a visit: car museum, zoo, railway museum. Cross the border to Germany or Switzerland to soak up neighbouring culture and compare the differences in the Countries. We thoroughly recommend the cottage to you and hope you find it, and the area, as charming as we did.
