Unique location in the heart of Eguisheim
Eguisheim has a central circle that everyone visits. This location is on the outer road which provides two advantages - easy to park from the back door and easy to walk the circle from the front door. The house is beautifully decorated all throughout. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking meals. There are two apartments. One on the first and one on the second. When we stayed, we only had one shared evening with other guests and it was very quiet. The owner is very kind and took the time to walk us through everything on arrival and very responsive when we had questions later. This was a wonderful location and we hope to visit again soon!
Classic Traditional Alsace Townhouse
Katia Schmitt is a local artist who has rebuilt, renovated and decorated this ancient house with excellent flair and taste. She has a shop on the ground floor, which doesn't impinge, with separate quite similar apartments across the first and second floors. We found the top apartment a charming place to stay for a week with our daughter, enjoying the view over the roof tops – complete with storks. It was always a pleasure to return to after a day exploring the local area by foot and by bike. Katia was friendly and helpful and the apartment nice and clean with sparkling windows. There is a small garden with a table, where we enjoyed aperitifs and al fresco dinners on warm evenings, though we had the advantage of no one staying in the other apartment or in the house next door. Eguisheim has interesting buildings and is pleasant to explore, but it is very much a tourist village with flocks of visitors and even a tourist train during the day. No problem in the early morning and evening when it was invariably quiet, and the house was pleasingly quiet at night. There is one good boulangerie nearby. Most of the other shops sell tourist stuff or stylishly packaged local wine, since Eguisheim is a major Alsace wine centre. We enjoyed good walks up in the foothills of the Vosges, just behind the village, and good cycle rides in all directions – through the vineyards south and north, up into the wooded hills, across the Rhine to Germany and back through the charming centre of Colmar. We had a very good week, staying in a delightfully civilised house in a delightfully civilised corner of France.
Quintessential Alsatian experience
This home is truly the ultimate Alsatian experience. It is decorated beautifully, is super clean and has all of the modern conveniences. The kitchen was well appointed for all of our cooking needs. The bed linens and towels were superior. Parking is conveniently located out back. The town itself is so perfect you really feel like you are walking through the set of Beauty and the Beast. Do not miss this experience.
Perfect location to enjoy Alsace
Everything about this VRBO is what you want in visiting Alsace. The Eguisheim location is perfect with restaurants to walk to, and the ambiance of historic and well maintained buildings. We loved looking our the shuttered windows at people walking below on the cobblestone, no cars street. Parking was free and right out the back door. Our host was great and responsive. Highly recommended.
Wonderful historic house
The second floor apartment is wonderfully restored and furnished in traditional style, enhanced by the owners own beautiful traditional hand painted decorating and artwork.
The apartment facilities are excellent and it is a comfortable place to eat, sleep and rest in even in very hot weather due to the natural through ventilation.
The location is very central within the wonderful town and although the house does get a lot of attention from visitors taking photographs of the exterior, it is still a peaceful location. You can even see the famous storks on their nests on the roof tops from the window. Nice shaded courtyard garden at rear to sit and relax.
It is wonderful to be able to park the car at the rear of the property and exit onto the pedestrian street at the front to wander into the town to buy fresh croissant in the morning or sample the lovely restaurants and wine degustations in the evening.
Katia is a wonderful host, meeting us at the beginning and end of our stay and could not do enough to help make our stay enjoyable and fulfilling.
A highly recommended property.
Wonderful place in cutest small town
We had a great experience. The home was very comfortable for the four of us. It was a very hot week, but with the windows closed during the day and all the way open during the night we slept very good. The town is such a wonderful place too. The storks kept us entertained and on Tuesday night there was life music at our dinner table by a men's choir.
Overal we had a great experience and Katia was a wonderful host. Thank you so so much
