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.

It was a perfect base to explore Alsace, Turckheim is a cute village with lots of walks directly from the village through the woods and vines and easy distances from beautiful Colmar and the other villages on the wine route. The Caveau du Forge in the village was a really lovely restaurant and there were several others which we did not try. Boulangerie de Brand, a few doors down does delicious croissants and patisserie so you eat your breakfast at the table by the window in the cottage overlooking the medieval village rooves!. Gregory Neff was a very helpful and friendly host and all was good!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

It was a whole 5 star experience, starting with Bernard's welcome. It's a good size apartment located in the heart of the town, you have all you need few steps away from the door, and all Colmar attractions at walking distance. The place is a typical Alsacian old construction with all the modern amenities required and beautifully decorated. It is completely private apartment, with tons of natural light and ventilation. The kitchen is fully equipped, there is small dining table and living area, a half toilet, and a separate master room with bathroom. I would not hesitate to recommend a perfect SEJOUR in this property!!!!
