The gîte “Le Prévot” is on the first floor of a house built in 1603 by the provost-marshal (prévôt) of the king Henry IV.
Over the years, the house became a typical winegrower house with its sandstone entrance porch, its timber framing construction, its flowered balcony and its courtyard between the barn and the house.
Fitted out in this typical house listed cultural heritage, our furnished holiday rental has been fully renovated and redecorated with patience and passion since 2010 and we respected the natural materials of our ancestors.
Here, the furniture is full of history and combines with the modern comfort for your well-being.

We spent the most delightful week in Hunawihr. The apartment was a true gem - spacious, spotlessly clean, very well appointed and excellently equipped. The apartment is in a quiet street in this peaceful village and there are three restaurants within walking distance. A big plus for us is that parking was never a problem and it was always possible to park right outside the apartment. I cannot recommend this rental highly enough. Bertrand and Penelope were excellent hosts - very friendly and extremely helpful but never intrusive. We definitely intend to return another time. A big thank you to our hosts.
When we arrived Bertrand welcomed us warmly, and once in the apartment we realized the photos weren't lying. It is as nice and warm as it looks. Small attentions like the traditional cake on the table, the bottle of wine in the fridge, the little Christmas tree betray the refinement of the owners Bertrand and Penelope.
The house itself has everything. It is very bright as the sun enters the rooms by every window. I don't know what to say. We spent 6 days in happiness in Hunawihr and the surroundings, and this lovely house played a part in this. Should I return, that's the place I would book. No doubt about that.
This was the best of the VRBO properties that we stayed in during our monthly European trip. First of all, the Alsatian location (between Riquewihr and Ribeauville) was central to Colmar, Strasbourg and the Route du Vin. We walked to three tasting rooms/wineries in Hunawihr and visited others nearby by car. Second, the apartment was a completely restored, upstairs unit in a building that dated back to the 1600's. It had a large kitchen and bathroom that both fit in well with the historic ambiance, a good-sized bedroom with a king-sized bed, and a spacious living room-dining room overlooking neighborhood gardens. The decorating was really superb. Finally, the owners, Bertrand and Penelope, were great people who took the time to explain everything about the unit, to tell us about local merchants (e.g. a fromagerie in Colmar), and to share a little wine and homemade cake made by Bertrand's mother. We recommend this apartment very highly.
Entsprach voll und ganz unserer Vorstellung. Die Wohnung ist stilecht und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Die Räume entsprechen den Fotos auf der Website. Allerdings sind die Fotos der Wohnung 'Le Prévot' zusammen mit der zweiten Wohnung abgebildet. Das ist etwas verwirrend. Super netter Vermieter, dem das Wohlergehen seiner Gäste nach unserem Eindruck sehr wichtig ist.
Authentisch renovierte Ferienwohnung in einem alten Elsässer Fachwerkhaus. Geschmackvoll und zum Ambiente passend eingerichtet, Küchengeräte auf neuestem Stand. Optimal für zwei Personen, für Familie mit bis zu zwei Kindern aber kein Problem. Direkt im Ortszentrum, kleiner Laden und Restaurants zu Fuß erreichbar. Ideal für Ausflüge in die umliegenden Weinorte und in die Vogesen. Vermieter im besten Sinne freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung ist jeden Euro wert.

The legend says that during the 12th century, following a poor harvest of the winegrowers of Hunawhir, Saint-Huna had made a miracle and had run wine in the fountain that was name after her. This wine was better than the better wine this village had ever produced.
Overlooking the village, Saint-Jacques-le-Majeur church from the 15th century, surrounded by a fortified cemetery, has preserved an intact environment that brings out this jewel of the Alsatian heritage. This church was also used as a donjon where the inhabitants took refuge in case of attack.
