It was also particularly well equipped, comfortable and dog friendly. Our stay at the beginning of September also coincided with the town's magnificent annual festival which passed along the main street. The whole region was lovely and within easy access.

The town of Riquewihr is without doubt breath taking, a real fantasy in the real world. We travelled quite far and wide taking in most of the wine route and other sights. Popped over the Rhine to Germany and travelled the lovely roads through the Vosges hills. But at the end of the day Riquewihr is by far the loveliest and well worth the stay. Our only very small criticism was the slight lack of kitchen utensils such as only one small chopping board, no garlic press e.t.c. But the towm and the apartment was worth every penny spent and we would love to return any day. Family of four, parents and two teenage boys.
