This property was perfect for our holiday. The village of Turckheim was beautiful and we were brilliantly situated near a boulangerie and with perfect view of the evening visit of the nightwatchman. There was a great choice of places to eat within walking distance and so many beautiful towns, villages and great scenery to admire. Gregory was so helpful and the air conditioning was a godsend.
We spent a lovely week in the appartment. It feels larger and more spacious than the photographs suggest, the beds are comfortable and it is well kitted out. We cooked numerous meals in the appartment and did quite a few loads of washing, too. The lounge looks out onto the Francois Baur courtyard, beyond which you can see people wandering down the main street - and catch sight of the night watchman on his evening rounds. The village is pretty and has various bakeries and restaurants and a small supermarket, and from various points, you can see vineyards rising up behind the town (and storks nesting all around). We were excellently placed for daytrips to Colmar, Strasbourg, Mulhouse, Kaysersberg and Rust in Germany (home of Europapark, although we chose instead to visit Parc du Petit Prince with our young boys - a lovely, quiet park). We also made trips to the impressive Chateau Haut-Koenigsbourg and the beautiful Riquewihr. This is a fascinating area for the language and cuisine - and you can't move for tempting treats, from pastries and macarons to pain d'epices and biscuits, and hearty rösti and spaetzle, meaty meals. And fantastic wine, of course! We had a wonderful welcome at the apartment and would return without hesitation - our boys have already asked to go back.
