Great quality house in an interesting area
This is a great quality house, well equipped and very comfy. It has the added extras of a pleasant garden and terrace with good seating - as well as an indoor sauna. It’s an easy 10 mins walk to the interesting historic town of Eguisheim, yet the house is in a quiet residential area. Our hosts were helpful with local tips and clearly maintain the house to a very high standard. There’s lots to see in the Alsace area with its rich history and plentiful vineyards. We would recommend a trip here : and this house is a great good quality base for exploring.
A fantastic house in Eguisheim
This was a beautiful house; very well-equipped and a great location. We were made very welcome and I really recommend this property. Eguisheim is a very pretty village with many places to eat but still close to Colmar with amenities such as supermarkets (and unfortunately for me, a hospital!)
Lovely property in such a pretty loction
We stayed here from 9/6 - 16/6/18.
We were warmly welcomed and shown around a spotless and beautifully decorated property.
The house is well equipped and comfortable.
Eguisheim is a pretty village with lots of places to eat (though mainly from Thursday to Sunday)
There is lots to see and do in the area and we should have had 2 weeks and not one.
Clean, comfortable, hospitable home.
Easy access and arrival. Home is beautiful, owners are very helpful. Easy walk to village center.
Lovely holiday home in Eguisheim
This modern property was extremely well- equipped and furnished to a high standard. It was in a quiet residential area but within easy walking distance of the centre of the pretty town of Eguisheim. Our hosts, Francis and Sandrine, were very helpful and there was plenty of useful tourist information in the villa. The villa is well-positioned for accessing the main routes to the south and north, so we were well-placed for sightseeing in the area. Colmar was 15 mins drive away. We would certainly return to this villa to explore the Alsace in more detail.
Charming house, perfect location and lovely owners
We had an incredible 10 days in Alsace with Gite Hirondelle in Eguisheim as our base. The house is in a wonderful location, close to the village, and near to all the wine towns of Alsace. Francis and Sandrine, the owners who live up the street, were gracious and generous, welcoming us with a bottle of Crémant d'Alsace and a delicious Kugelhopf cake.
For years, we have been using Home Away to find apartments and houses all over Europe. This one has to be one of our all time favorites. The house is incredible clean and well appointed with heated towel racks, coffee pot, lots of dishes, pots and pans and beautiful crystal glasses. We enjoyed breakfast every morning in the kitchen and looked forward every night to dinner on the terrace. Every day we found markets in the wine towns we visited by car or train and brought back local cuisine and bottles of wine to enjoy in the evenings. It was just paradise!
There were only two of us so we had plenty of room, and we enjoyed the privacy of the neighborhood. The colors in the house are all neutrals and soft grays and browns - so soothing and welcoming. The stone floors have radiant heating which we never needed. Francis even rolled the grill around to our terrace in case we wanted to use it.
Francis and Sandrine recommended excellent restaurants and local villages to explore.
We visited Colmar, Riquewihr, Ribeauville, Hunawihr, Strasbourg, Selestat, EcoMusée, Haut Koenigsbourg and even took a 45 minute train to Basel in Switzerland. September is the time of the harvesting of the grapes so we saw people in knee high boots picking the grapes everywhere we went.
We can't say enough about our trip or about our generous and kind hosts. We will never forget our "home" in Alsace. Thank you Francis and Sandrine.
