From our first contact with the owners, nothing was too much trouble. All questions answered promptly. On meeting they are just as friendly and personable.
The apartment itself is lovely, right in the centre of the old town, so you are close to everything.
There are 2 full flights of stairs to climb so maybe not ideal for the less mobile but otherwise perfect for most groups of travellers, whether friends or family.
The apartment itself has an easy-living charm to it, beautifully and simply decorated with 3 bedrooms, 2 toilets and a spacious bathroom. The children's bedroom with 2 sets of bunks is especially charming, as is the large dining/lounge room. There were many additional thoughtful touches found on our arrival such as local cake, some basics supplied, and a couple of lovely cold beers in the fridge!
We were very sad to be leaving after our weeks stay and would definitely recommend it to others travelling to Colmar.
Great apartment, nicely located in the center of Colmar. The apartment is very well equipped. Everything nice and clean. Very helpful and friendly host family. Really a good experience. We'll visit again!
Michel and Cathy's place couldn't be in a better position to explore the picturesque old town of Colmar. At 50 metres from the Cathedral, you are right in the center. The 17th century building, and the apartment have a lot of character, and amenities are extremely complete. No need to travel with cooking oil, coffee, salt or washing-machine tabs - everything is there! The flat was spot-on clean.
Michel gave us valuable tips, ideas and recommendations for our stay and even picked us up from the train station, totally unexpectedly. He was always available for any help we would need, and generally made us feel at home.
We all agreed that we would definitely recommend "Once upon a time" to anyone looking for a place to stay in Colmar.
The location of Cathy and Michel's apartment is amazing. Just a few steps of historical center. Beautiful and functional place.
They were so kind and professional.
