The kitchen was well stocked with all that we required. The beds were comfortable and the apartment was very clean. We loved having our own private courtyard to sit in and to eat our meals. The views from the kitchen window was so quaint. There wasn't a lot of noise as the apartment is tucked away behind a gated courtyard. We love walking to the Boulanger every morning for our pastries. There is a small supermarket a Few minutes walk away. Veronique was very helpful and delightful to deal with both before we arrived and during our stay. The stairs going up to the apartment are quite steep but this was not an issue for us or my 79 year old mother. Would love to return again one day. Colmar drew us to the area of Alsace, but Ribeauville will make us return!
