Recent Alsace reviews

  • Outstanding

    "This property is an an excellent location within walking distance of Eguisheim and a very short drive to Colmar. The home was very clean upon arrival and the tour given was very detailed. I like that they have nice kitchen equipment and am certainly willing to hand-wash wine glasses for the benefit of having nice glasses. As in many rentals I have used, I do wish that the knives were sharper or that a sharpener would be provided. We enjoyed the sauna and were very pleasantly surprised that there was also a large jetted tub. We really enjoyed our walk up through the vineyards and forest to the three-chateaus. The map and other tourist information provided at the house is impressive."

  • Beautiful Old House in Charming Town

    "Wonderful old house full of character and ideally situated to walk into Obernai. Very hospitable mists who greeted us with coffee, cakes and drinks. Obernai is a delight and the centre is only a few minutes walk away. Local boulangerie is barely a minutes walk."

  • Amazing Location and Beautiful Apartment in Strasbourg

    "We can't say enough wonderful things about this beautiful apartment in the heart of everything. As a family of 5, we enjoyed the location, which is near everything you would want to see. The apartment was spotless (very clean), updated bathroom and kitchen facilities, comfortable bedding and lovely décor. Clearly, this property has been well-maintained. We felt immediately at home. The location is perfect with wonderful restaurants and shops just outside the front door. We were grateful for the accurate online description and would highly recommend to friends and family. Thank you and we plan to reserve another stay in this apartment!"

Alsace Travel Tips

Enjoy Authentic French Living with Alsace Vacation Rentals

The Alsace region is on the eastern side of France, bordering Germany. Both German and French are widely spoken in the area, albeit with a strong local accent. Known for its natural beauty, the area enjoys stunning vistas of the Vosges Mountains which provide the perfect climate for vine-growing.

The capital of the Alsace region is Strasbourg, one of Europe’s classiest cities. Along with the excellent wines, the region is well known for its traditional cuisine including tasty cheeses, onion tarts, foie gras and German-influenced spaetzle or noodles. Enjoy pretty villages with half-timbered cottages; they are centuries old and decorated with flower boxes on the window sills. With a backdrop of rolling hills and acres of vineyards, the area is ideal for walking and cycling.

The Best Time to Visit the Alsace Region

Due to its mountain-shadow location, Alsace has one of the lowest rainfalls in Europe which is a big plus for vacationers. It is classified as having a Continental climate which means that each of the four seasons is pleasant. During the winter, Alsace vacation rentals are popular with skiers. The spring and summer seasons see the colorful displays of wild flowers. Late summer and autumn are the most popular seasons, when Alsace is at its hottest and most crowded.

Great Reasons for Choosing Alsace Accommodations

Renting Alsace villas gives visitors an opportunity to enjoy local life, staying in a cottage, gîte or villa accommodation, often in the heart of a village. The Alsace accommodations are far more spacious and home-like than local hotels, with the added pleasure of plenty of character. Delegate a member of the family to go down to the local boulangerie each morning for warm croissants, bread and patisseries fresh from the oven. Dine in the local restaurants in the evening or if you prefer, use your equipped Alsace accommodation to prepare simple meals based on the fresh seasonal produce accompanied by a local wine. Alsace accommodations offer flexibility for families and quiet relaxation for those looking for romantic breaks.

Getting to Your Alsace Villas

Alsace vacation rentals are very easy to get to from all over Europe. Low-cost flights to Strasbourg are frequent and the smart railway station has hourly train connections to Paris, London and Brussels, all less than three hours away. Once you have reached Alsace, you may want to rent a car to explore the region, or enjoy a slower pace of life by hiking and cycling, using your Alsace vacation rentals as bases from which to explore this charming area.

Things to Do from Alsace Vacation Rentals

Many visitors choose to visit Alsace during the wine harvest. Cycling, walking or driving along the wine route offers countless opportunities to stop and visit the local wineries for free tastings. You are never far from one of the castles which stand guard overlooking the vineyards and many date back to Roman times. The castles of Alsace often have special events and a tour gives insight into the history of the Alsace region. Horseback riding, cycling and hiking are popular ways to get around in the summer, and snow sports such as skiing and snowmobiling are popular in the winter months. Bungee jumping, paragliding and boating on the waterways are also popular activities.

Places to Visit from the Lovely Alsace Villas

Alsace villas are the perfect homes away from home to stay in while visiting Strasbourg. The historic part of this idyllic German-influenced city is laced with narrow cobbled streets, romantic waterways and beautiful townhouses. Known as “La Petite France,” it has charming shops, museums and attractions at every turn. The museums have fine collections of art and local history, making them an interesting place to visit and learn more about the Alsace region.
