We were able to stop outside the apartment to unload our car, but soon warned to move on by a patrolling official. The only free parking area is located several blocks away but not well marked and very full on a Friday night. Owner Stéphanie pedalled over to let us in, seemed a bit reserved and formal (this was the only place we stayed where the owner asked for a signed lease agreement, 250 Euros security deposit, extra charge for linen, and expected all cleaning and vacuuming to be done before departure!) Apart from having to indulge the owner's cleaning fetish, the only other real negative was that we found the pillows quite hard and uncomfortable. Otherwise a perfect place to stay and enjoy the amazing and very popular attractions of Colmar.
