A cosy, well-equipped gîte

  • 5 of 5

La Maison Bleue is immaculately presented and well-equipped. It is compact, but was perfect for three adults and a Labrador. It is very comfortable and easy to care for, with hard flooring throughout. We particularly appreciated the excellent kitchen, with a fan oven and induction hob, as we catered for ourselves throughout the week. We had glorious weather (more like high summer than early Spring) so were able to make good use of the terrace and garden. Madame Riche and her family were away when we visited, but she had made arrangements for us to collect the key when we arrived and for the housekeeper to see us off when we left.

The gîte lies at the foot of Mount Saint Odile and is less than 200m from the Urlosenholz Wood, with way-marked footpaths good for walking, running and mountain-biking. There are numerous walks in the local area, with several suggested circuits around the next door village of Heiligenstein and, just a short drive away, at Le Hohwald. The village is conveniently placed for excursions to Obernai, Colmar and Strasbourg and is surrounded by vineyards offering wine tastings.

Saint-Nabor itself has no shop or restaurant but there are restaurants and a well-stocked Proxi convenience store and boulangerie in Ottrott (less than 1km away) and a Leclerc supermarket in Obernai (on the Boulevard de l’Europe). Guests travelling from Britain with pets might find it useful to know that we found an English-speaking vet in Obernai (Clinique Vétérinaire Brabants at 5 rue Murner).

Warm & welcoming: Gîte le Maison Bleu, St. Nabor

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful! In spite of unfortunate weather, we enjoyed our week stay at this lovely gîte. The cottage is perfectly clean and very cute. The surrounding garden is absolutely immaculate; certainly looked after with great care. The owners are a lovely, warm family. My young kids played well with the two little girls, sharing toys and interacting with no problem. When we realized that the weather report we had read prior to leaving was highly inaccurate (!), Emmanuelle was nice enough to offer to wash our laundry so that we could rewear our warmer clothing due to the unusually soggy weather.

We made numerous half-day trips, and the entire area we saw was peaceful, adorable, and so tidy! Emmanuelle speaks good English and can make suggestions for activities. Our itinerary included Obernai, Montagne des Singes (Barbary monkey reserve with wonderful cafe and playground facilities), le Palais du Pain d'épices (gingerbread museum and workshop), Cité du Train (excellent train museum) and wandering in the nearby vineyards. Cannot say much about restaurants, since we don't often eat out with three young kids, but there are weekly markets throughout the area (ask Emmanuelle) offering quality produce and prepared foods (perfect for small meals back at the cottage or picnics). Ditto on the wine, but locally produced wine is available at the MANY wineries in these beautiful villages.

Overall, I'd recommend this place for a group of four or fewer people. Great location and very nice people. Thank you, Emmanuelle!

C'est une maison Bleue... adossée à Sainte-Odile

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons eu énormément de plaisir à séjourner dans cette mignonne maison. Tout est bien pensé et joliment décoré par les propriétaires.

C'est un lieu très calme, vous ne serez dérangé que par le chant des oiseaux.

Maison propre et confortable, agréable aussi avec un petit feu de cheminée (le propriétaire nous a gentiment mis du bois à disposition).

Nous avons admiré aussi les fleurs et les extérieurs verts de la maison.

Sinon, c'est une région très belle avec beaucoup de choses à découvrir.

Nous garderons l'adresse de la Maison Bleue précieusement.

Grand merci aux propriétaires.

Valérie, Jacques et Yan

Sehr schönes Haus in ruhiger Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Karnevalstage in dem geschmackvoll eingerichteten Fachwerkhaus verbracht und Abends die Wärme des Kaminfeuers genossen. Als wir ankamen brannte das Feuer schon, waren die Betten bezogen und stand eine Flasche Crémant bereit. Tout était parfait et nous voudrions bien revenir bientôt. Merci à Emmanuelle et Vincent.

Perfekt und super gemütlich!

  • 5 of 5

La Maison bleu ist ein urgemütliches kleines Häuschen, in dem 4 Leute prima Platz finden. Madame Riche hat uns mit brennendem Kamin und selbstgebackenen Plätzchen empfangen. So fühlen wir uns von Anfang an pudelwohl! Die Wohnküche und das Zimmer sind liebevoll eingerichtet! Alles ist da, was man so braucht....in der Küche könnte es ein paar mehr Sachen, z.B. Schüsseln und gute Messer geben. Aber das tat keinen Abbruch!
