It is compact, but was perfect for three adults and a Labrador. It is very comfortable and easy to care for, with hard flooring throughout. We particularly appreciated the excellent kitchen, with a fan oven and induction hob, as we catered for ourselves throughout the week. We had glorious weather (more like high summer than early Spring) so were able to make good use of the terrace and garden. Madame Riche and her family were away when we visited, but she had made arrangements for us to collect the key when we arrived and for the housekeeper to see us off when we left. The gîte lies at the foot of Mount Saint Odile and is less than 200m from the Urlosenholz Wood, with way-marked footpaths good for walking, running and mountain-biking. There are numerous walks in the local area, with several suggested circuits around the next door village of Heiligenstein and, just a short drive away, at Le Hohwald. The village is conveniently placed for excursions to Obernai, Colmar and Strasbourg and is surrounded by vineyards offering wine tastings. Saint-Nabor itself has no shop or restaurant but there are restaurants and a well-stocked Proxi convenience store and boulangerie in Ottrott (less than 1km away) and a Leclerc supermarket in Obernai (on the Boulevard de l’Europe). Guests travelling from Britain with pets might find it useful to know that we found an English-speaking vet in Obernai (Clinique Vétérinaire Brabants at 5 rue Murner).

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We first stayed here in 2015 after finding it on HomeAway. I always look for rural/countryside holidays as we come from a busy city - so this was perfect. Plus as an added bonus, it had animals and as my daughter is an animal lover I thought it would be a lovely treat for her. The gite is in a very remote location, its so peaceful and tranquil with beautiful views of the trees and the mountain. We went as 3 generations (grandparents, us and our 7 year old) and we all had the most amazing stay. Vincent and Francois are the best hosts. They will do everything they can to make your stay as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible, they really go out of their way to accommodate you. They are such genuine people - so nice to be around, we had many laughs and lots of fun in their company. Vincent had us all roaring with laughter!! Our holiday at this gite was truly unlike any other place we have visited. In fact, we loved it so much that we visited again in August 2016 for another week and will surely go back again. My daughter still raves about our holiday with "Vincent Uncle" (as she calls him) and Caixon (the dog) and Lili (the goat).......she even tells all her teachers and friends in school!! There are lots of animals - a dog, 4 cats, a goat, ducks, geese, rabbits and more! If you like animals then you absolutely MUST stay here, the animals walk around freely during the day and my daughter loved running around after them and helping to feed them etc. A word of advice though - bring trainers or wellies as there will be animal droppings on the floor, but the inside of the gite is lovely and clean and everything is fitted out luxuriously to the highest standard. I should also mention that although there is wifi in the gite, the signal is weak at times and phone reception (UK 3 network) is non-existent near the gite, but this wasn't a big issue for us. There are plenty of attractions within driving distance and Vincent (always ready to help) will send you his lists and really go out of his way to help you find activities that you and your family will enjoy. In 2015 there were 2 wild deer that came every night to eat food that Vincent put out for them and now one year later, there are 4 deer that come to the house! They come at all times of the day, often when we return from a journey there will be wild stags there standing in front of our car! It is truly amazing! This really is a once in a lifetime holiday, I can't recommend it highly enough!!
