Refuge du Lutin*** - Romantic studio: Riquewihr Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 504212ha
This is a charming studio (named le Refuge du Lutin in French - the refuge of the imp) which offers great comfort: Large double bed (160x200), kitchenette and private bath room (Shower + WC). If you search the internet for imps, you will learn that of all dwarves imps are the smallest and the wisest. Imps are usually between 2 feet 2 inches and 3 feet 5 inches tall and mostly have fair, red or light brown hair and clear green, blue or grey eyes. Should you be somehow taller, you could still have a comfortable stay in this studio which is twice as large as many hotel rooms!
The studio provides great comfort and charm for smaller budgets. The layout of the studio makes the best out of the available space and will provide comfortable lodging for one couple.

Riquewihr is a medieval city of an exceptional beauty. Riquewihr, a colourful village out of a fairy tale, hides in a small valley on the foot of the Vosges mountains, on the wine trail of Alsace, hardly a dozen kilometres from Colmar. In Riquewihr you are in the middle of this so picturesque Alsace of the picture books. For centuries, Riquewihr produces some of the most beautiful wines of Alsace and the world. A nature superbly made up of vineyards and wooded mountains is protecting this exceptional jewel which is Riquewihr. Ramparts, rich residences and more modest medieval houses make it the pearl of the Alsatian vineyard and one of the most visited and most beautiful villages in France.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Les Remparts de Riquewihr (Ramparts of Riquewihr) is a small family business created and run by a couple of tourism professionals - Martine and Jean-Paul - having many years of experience in airline business and travels.
Why the Owner Chose Riquewihr: Our vacation rentals are a very special combination of authentic national heritage character and modern amenities.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: We think that - especially for a rather long stay (most of our guests are discovering the slow travel concept and are staying 7 nights and more) - it is not enough to sleep well during the night but it is necessary to enjoy the stay in a place which is somehow of the same level as the historical surroundings, the landscape, the mountain and the vineyards: beautiful. We put a lot of effort and care in the renovation and decoration of our vacation rental apartments because we want our holiday homes to be a memorable part of your travel experience to Alsace and France.
