Ivy & I, an elderly couple, thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks in this delightful apartment - better than advertised by virtue of the quality of furnishings, fittings, cutlery & crockery. We made good use of the cooking & laundry facilities & were encouraged to use the central heating [& did]. The situation is as described - a couple of minutes from both the centre of town & the free car park. Noise? not from pedestrians & the buzz of traffic over the setts didn't disturb us, even though at home we live in a quiet cul de sac. Although Mme Kieffer-Schaller writes only in French her English is quite good enough to make one welcome & explain how things work. Obernai is a smashing town with plenty of restaurants & cafes, and best of all for us, enough boulangeries & boucheries to ensure that at least 1 would be open on Sundays & Mondays. We can warmly recommend this apartment without reservation.
This is a great place to stay but there are a couple of things you should be aware of, the dry toilet is basically a bucket and sawdust, it's set in a very nice pine bench but needs emptying into a compost heap. There are mice in the house, to be expected in such a rural setting, but everything needs cleaning before use ( given the toilet you don't want to risk an upset tummy). The stairs are very steep being only 9 treads rather than the normal 13. All that said it's a great lodge with a sauna and looks lovely, set on the edge of the forest with hiking from the doorstep. The shower and bathroom are great and there are really nice public toilets a few minutes drive up the hill. The view from the veranda is amazing and evenings spent there using the BBQ and a bottle of wine are magical.
