About Andre Wirth

The place.

Andre Wirth purchased this cottage in 1978

Why Andre Wirth chose Colmar area

The house has been our main residence. Due to some development, we have moved to an apartment near our workplace, and opted for renting the house rather selling it because of our attachment to the site.

What makes this cottage unique

Rooms are big and spacious, offering certain warmth, as we have been told. The house has been completely restored and restructured (it was a hotel). It has been tastefully decorated, and it has stylish furniture. Overlooking the South, or on the sunny side, you can enjoy an exceptional and aerial view of the Munster valley, the large ridges of Hautes Vosges, and the Petit Ballon mountain range. The place is exceptionally quiet. The house is surrounded by meadowlands, away from traffic, and it is ideal to rest and revitalise. Game watching (roe deer, foxes, birds, and much more) is possible from the windows of the house. The house, however, is not isolated. (See our photos). Less than an hour away, you can find tourist places, cities, and villages, as well as the heights of Alsace and Vosges.

Lovely mountain house in a small village

  • 5 of 5

André is a great host: he was very nice and helpful, gave us a lot of recommendations and did everything to make our stay an excellent experience. The house is very big, cosy, tastefully furnished and adapted to kids. It is located in a small village and there is a breathtaking view over the Vosges. It is an ideal starting point for exploring both Colmar and La route des vins, and the ski resorts La Bresse and Gerardmer. All in all, I can highly recommend this place. Merci beaucoup, André !

Merci beaucoup pour un très agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très belles semaine avec des amis à Hohrodberg. La description du bien correspondait parfaitement. La maison offre un point de départ idéale pour des excursions vers la "Weinstraße", la Route des Crêtes et dans la vallée de Munster. Merci à André pour la petite surprise et le gentil accueil! A bientôt, Kathrin et amis plus chien Jule

Owner's Response: Kathrin et ses amis nous ont fait confiance en retenant notre gîte, et nous les en remercions encore vivement. Ce sont des hôtes très sympathiques, de plus, Kathrin maîtrise parfaitement la langue de Rousseau ! (de même que certains de ses amis) A tous les hébergeurs : vous pouvez les accueillir en toute confiance et avec sympathie, ils le méritent, de même que Jule leur chien. Une caresse à lui, et au plaisir de vous revoir vous tous, si vous en décidez ainsi. André

Ruhige Silvester mit viel Komfort

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit unseren Kindern, Enkelkindern und Hunden über Silvester 16/17 im herrlich gelegenen Haus von M. Wirth. Wir genossen die schönen Sonnenaufgänge und die Lage des Hauses oberhalb des Nebels – den ganzen Tag Sonne, selbst Kaffeetrinken im Freien war möglich. Die geschmackvolle Einrichtung des Hauses mit dem annoncierten Komfort hat uns – mit Ausnahme der renovierungsbedürftigen Dusche im oberen Appartement – überzeugt.

Der anfänglich aufwendige Schriftverkehr ließ uns sehr skeptisch anreisen. Aber M. Wirth hat diese Bedenken mit seiner freundlichen Begrüßung im weihnachtlich geschmückten Haus schnell zerstreut. Es hat sich ausgezahlt, den ausführlichen Erklärungen von M. Wirth zu folgen.

Wir können dieses Haus für ruhige Ferien in der Natur bestens weiterempfehlen.

antik rustikaler Luxusurlaub

  • 5 of 5

wunderschönes Haus mit grandiosem Ausblick und hochwertigem, antiken Interieur in ruhiger Lage. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen und uns vom ersten Moment an Wohl gefühlt.

Nur die beiden Duschen könnten mal an den restlichen Standard angepasst werden, was unseren Urlaub aber nicht beeinträchtigte.

Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder.

Owner's Response: Wir waren begeistert, diese sehr sympathische Familie zu empfangen und eben sehr gern werden wir sie erneut empfangen. Die Schiebetür der Dusche ist in ihrem Gleis eingereicht gewesen, und funktioniert erneut normalerweise.
