Lovely apartment in a lovely village in a lovely area

5 of 5
Frederic was a superb host and was there to meet us when we arrived. The apartment is very spacious and the beds comfortable-bathroom excellent too - our only quibble was that it is really hot at night and we feel it needs a fan of some sort - we left the windows open which isn't ideal - Sorry to moan because overall we loved it.

lovely location

5 of 5
The house is located a short walk away from the village with easy access on foot. well equipped apartment with everything for our stay. Carole our host was most helpful and always ready to help. Plenty of choice of shops and restaurants in the village, and very picturesque! Colmar is only a short drive away. I recommend this gite, and would happily stay again.
