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!
