Beautiful Gite and village
We loved our stay here. The Gite was very clean and comfortable. Walking straight onto the ramparts was a real bonus. 3 minutes to the playground. 2 minutea to the bakery! Perfect for a family. Thank you.
Beautiful La Maison d'Achille in the Haut-Rhin Village of Bergheim
My stay was from 1 Dec 2018 to 8 Dec 2018. Simon met me upon my arrival and proceeded to give me an orientation of the property. The apartment is 3 floors next door to Simon's home located on a cul-de-sac. There is a manually operated driveway gate that Simon leaves open during the day. You park your car inside the gate, allowing enough room for Simon to park his car in the garage. On the ground floor, accessed from the driveway, there's a sauna and exercise room containing a treadmill, stationary bike, elliptical, and rowing machine. The 1st floor is accessed via exterior steps leading to a covered porch entry. The 1st floor has a full kitchen, living room, eat-in kitchen table, all equipped to a high standard. There's the option for a wood burning fire in the living room. The 2nd floor is accessed via stairs; there are two bedrooms and a half-bath, so you'll need to use the 1st floor bathroom for your shower. Bergheim is a nice village of cobbled lanes and half-timbered buildings. Simon had his home and the apartment decorated for Christmas. The village was having a Nativity creche decorating theme for Christmas and there were several families that participated in the village. Simon and his father, Jean-Louis, had built a homemade creche in the driveway with lighting. Very nice. I did day trips every day. The Haut-Rhin Alsace Wine Route with Colmar, Ribeauville, Riquewihr, Kaysersburg, Equisheim, and Guebwiller all being beautiful villages along the route, all having Christmas markets. I did day trips to Freiburg, Germany and Basel, Switzerland too. Just a great time during the week. I walked to Ribeauville and back to Bergheim using lanes and paths through the vineyards. There's a Proxi convenience/grocery store in Bergheim for basics that's within easy walking distance. There are larger grocery stores near Ribeauville that require a car. Thanks Simon for a great stay at La Maison d'Achille. Your English is way better than my French or German.
perfect, charming house along the Alsace wine road
We absolutely recommend this lovely house in Bergheim! Every decorative detail is so charming and attractive, but guest comfort has not been sacrificed along the way. It was very clear that many thoughtful decisions went into its design in order to create the perfect holiday experience. The bed was really comfortable, and we appreciated the second upstairs bathroom, the space of the additional bedroom, and the fully-equipped kitchen (not that we ever cook in France, but you could.) The wood-burning stove is a delight if you are there in the winter, and the welcoming host, Simon, had even decorated for Christmas, so you can enjoy the cozy atmosphere enhanced by the lights on the Christmas tree. Alsace, of course, is a very special delight during the Christmas season, and we loved the twinkly lights of Bergheim, perfectly situated for many Christmas markets and other sight-seeing destinations. The gite is every bit as pretty as its photographs, and it is blissfully warm as well. (I'm including that point because, when shopping for a winter rental, I tend to look for a specific mention of whether or not it was warm enough.) We are happy to be home, but I would return here again in a heartbeat for another dose of fairy-tale magic.
