Make a holiday rental in Sundgau, France your home away from home

Sundgau self-catering holiday accommodation is found in eastern France, next to the borders with Germany and Switzerland. At the foothills of the Jura Mountains, it’s an area featuring rolling hills, plenty of greenery, farms, the picturesque Ill River and lots of history.

Things to do in Sundgau, France

On holiday at a gite in Sundgau an excellent destination for a day trip would be the town of Altkirch. This medieval town sits atop a hill and features a number of buildings that take back to the Middle Ages, with attractive fountains and churches, and charming squares. The town’s ramparts are no longer completely intact, but there are interesting remnants to be seen at various points around Altkirch. La Vieille Porte is a good example, and was the main gateway to the town in medieval times. Place de la Republique would be the best place to start your visit to Altkirch, and here you’ll be able to see a number of the town’s centuries-old buildings, many in the renaissance style. Another attractive place to visit from a holiday rental in Sundgau would be the city of Mulhouse. The cathedral here is impressive, and overlooks the historic Place de la Reunion. One of the buildings to seek out on this square is the pharmacy, which has been here since the 1600s and is still in business today. There are also a variety of museums to be enjoyed in Mulhouse – the Cite de l’Auromobile is France’s national car museum, and as you’d expect boasts an extensive collection of automobiles – with everything from high-powered sports cars to tractors, all from a wide range of periods. There’s also a high-profile train museum, with some very early locomotives and rail-travel artefacts that date back as far as a century and a half.

Places to visit on holiday in Sundgau, France

The Swiss city of Basel sits just across the border from holiday accommodation in Sundgau, and features an intetesting old town. The cathedral here is particularly important, featuring a blend of Gothic and Romanesque architecture. There’s also the stunning renaissance Town Hall, and a host of pretty streets and squares, like Marktplatz.

Weather in Sundgau, France

During your trip to Sundgau holiday homes you’ll be in a zone with a continental climate, which brings warm, sunny weather in summer, when temperatures hit the mid-20s. Springs are mild here, but winters tend to be consistently cold, with highs peaking just above freezing.

                                      A perfect gite

                                      5 of 5
                                      We had a fantastic time in this beautiful gite. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by the hospitality and kindness shown by Jean, Marie and Beatrice. The gite's grounds are picturesque and it is lovely to be able to sit outside on the terrace. Inside the gite is very well looked after and has everything you need. Jean was very informative with advice and tips on things to do in the local area and there are many excellent days out to be had from Heidwiller. We would especially recommend a visit to the local restaurant and a bike ride along the canal. Europa park, which is an amazing theme park in Germany, is also well worth a visit and is only about an hours drive away, Thanks again Jean and Marie. Hopefully we will see you again! Rose and Danny

The accommodation is spacious, very clean, comfortable and the owner family are very welcoming and helpful. The location is amazing, right next to a forest for lovely walks and there are many lovely towns and cities within an easy drive. Book it!" <br> <br> "Nous étions la première famille à rester dans ce nouvel appartement à Illfurth. Nous avons passé Noël ici et nous pouvons recommander des vacances ici. L'appartement est spacieux, très propre et confortable et la famille soyez très accueillant et utile. L'endroit est excellent, juste à côté d'une forêt pour des belles promenades et il y a beaucoup de belles villes dans la région autour de l'apartment. Réservez-le !"
