Why Stéphanie HUGUES chose Quartier Centre

We lived 10 years in this cozy nest in the city center of Colmar. The birth of our daughter forced us to leave. But as we were very sentimentally attached to it, we are determined to keep it and turn it into cottage to share the city we fell in love with all those who wish to explore the area.

What makes this apartment unique

hypercentre, great location, typical, picturesque, charming, quiet, pleasant, spacious, comfortable, well equipped, all bedding (including the sofa bed) is very recent and quality classification "comfort" by Gîtes France in February 2014, near station, close to all shops and sights, good price / quality ratio

Perfect apartment in the Colmar city center

  • 5 of 5

We visited Colmar for Christmas market and this apartment was the perfect place to stay. On a quite street just a few short blocks from all of the markets. It is also an easy walk from all other places in the old city. The two bedroom apartment is very spacious and has all amenities you might need during your stay. I recommend it very highly for any visit to Colmar.

Very neat apartment close to tourist attractions

  • 4 of 5

This spacious second floor self-catering apartment is in a narrow pedestrian street almost in the heart of the picturesque historic centre of Colmar. We were able to stop outside the apartment to unload our car, but soon warned to move on by a patrolling official. The only free parking area is located several blocks away but not well marked and very full on a Friday night. Owner Stéphanie pedalled over to let us in, seemed a bit reserved and formal (this was the only place we stayed where the owner asked for a signed lease agreement, 250 Euros security deposit, extra charge for linen, and expected all cleaning and vacuuming to be done before departure!) Apart from having to indulge the owner's cleaning fetish, the only other real negative was that we found the pillows quite hard and uncomfortable. Otherwise a perfect place to stay and enjoy the amazing and very popular attractions of Colmar.

Owner's Response: We specify on our internet ad and on the rental agreement that there are optional charges (sheets, towels, cleaning) and that we ask a deposit of 250 € on arrival. Indeed, it seems to us more pleasant that our prices are adjusted according to the requested options. Thus, a family who takes care of all the "details" is happy to pay less, and we too, because it gives us much less work. Finally, we must take the time to read the announcement before booking and commit. We offer two kinds of pillows: feather pillows AND synthetic pillows. But you have to take the time to open all the closets and wardrobes! Nous précisons bien sur notre annonce internet et sur le contrat de location qu'il y a des frais optionnels (draps, serviettes, ménage) et que nous demandons une caution de 250€ à l'arrivée. En effet, cela nous paraît plus agréable que nos prix soient ajustés en fonction des options demandées. Ainsi, une famille qui se charge de tout les "détails" est heureuse de payer moins cher, et nous aussi, car cela nous donne beaucoup moins de travail. Finalement, il faut donc prendre le temps de lire l'annonce avant de réserver et de s'engager. Nous proposons deux sortes d'oreillers: des oreillers en plumes ET des oreillers synthétiques. Encore faut-il prendre le temps d'ouvrir tous les placards et toutes les armoires!

Great location! Wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat the location. The apartment is in the center of town. The owner was wonderful and went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of. Spacious and very comfortable for a family of four with room for more.. We hope to stay there again.
