Spacious, comfortable property with stunning views

4 of 5
Large, beautiful property which is currently being renovated to an extremely high standard. Huge comfortable beds - slept very well here in the peaceful location. Amazing beautiful views across the valley. Well equipped kitchen, nice to have pantry items available. Great communications from a very helpful and friendly hosts. We used this as a base for cycling in the area - would certainly recommend to other similar travellers and couples/families. Thank you Hakim and Fanny - it was lovely!

Exceeded our expectations

5 of 5
Malou and Coco were hospitable, generous and informative hosts. The cottage is as described. The village has a good restaurant and a depot de pain. Truckheim is less than 4km away and is very attractive with many bars and restaurants and a small Casino. Malou recommended an excellent boucherie/charcuterie in nearby Ingersheim. The kitchen is well equipped as you would expect from retired restaurateurs.
