Very quite, cosy house with style

  • 5 of 5

We had the chance to rent this property just when it came to the market. As we live in nearby Basel, we used it as a summer retreat over several months, moving back and forth between the two places. The place is wonderfully quiet with nice views over open countryside. Among many other animals, we also spotted dear grazing below the house at night several times. The setting is very private - a real hideaway, yet all the great Alsace places are within easy reach. Perfect for nature lovers as the mountains all around are full of beautiful spots. The house displays a very tastefully decorated interior and is truly welcoming, a real family weekend home (the very polite owners live in Paris but if needed, a discrete caretaker is available close by for help at all times). Everything you need is there and very clean. The only reason why we don't rent the house again this year is that we travel elsewhere for all the summer months - we definitely recommend this property to anyone who likes to visit Alsace from a quiet and private base.

Maison au calme où on se sent comme chez soi

  • 4 of 5

Nous étions 9 personnes adultes quinquagénaires. Lors de notre séjour dans cette maison située dans les bois au calme sans un bruit, nous avons particulièrement appréciés que les propriétaires nous laissent une maison familiale où nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous avec des meubles anciens, bibliothèques, livres, i pod, etc...Cette maison est suffisamment grande pour être à l'aise même à 9 personnes...et avec 2 jours de mauvais temps, nous avons pu allumer un feu de cheminée. L'accueil du voisin est tout à fait chaleureux. C'est une maison que je recommende vivement.

Sehr schöne und ruhige Lage. Das Haus ist hervorragend und gemütlich ausgestattet. Wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt. Abwicklung und Betreuung durch den Vermieter waren genial. So sollte es immer funktionieren!!
