“Excellent accomodation”

We booked into Riquewihr as it was said to be "most beautiful village" and it is - but it is small (1/2 day wander covers it) and also full of tourists (by the coach-load). However the gite "Romance" was a great find - nicely kitted out and very comfortable. Really a nice place to stay for two. I think for 4 maybe a little too compact. Make sure you reserve the parking space. Streets are narrow so no parking there. This gites is a great base to stay and to leave the car behind but still to have places to eat in the evening. The location is great for walking to the less touristy villages during the day. Walks are well signed and easy distance (leave the car behind). Go to Hunwihr (2 Km) and see the church (and then on to Ribberville (3 Km) if you dont mind visiting a larger version of Riquewihr - however some good restaurants for lunch. But ensure you make the walk to Kientheim (only 3Km)- walk around the village outer walls walk and stop for tea at the Hotel - brilliant. If you call in at the Tourist Information in Riquewihr they will give you all the info and maps. Riquewihr is full of restaurants but the food and service is unreliable and can be very disappointing. Read and believe the reports on tripadvisor and avoid most of the ones on the main Charles de Gaulle main street. Service is often poor if not down-right unwelcoming. Food is "Alsace specialitiy" and not that good. On the other hand the "michelin restaurants are fleecing the unwherery. The side street restuarants are best option, On the side street next to the Gite is a pizzeria which is good just for a drink outside or also a short menu of good simple food. At the upper end of Charles de Gaule (towards the tower) is a restuarant with a fox sitting on a barrel - also very good food and service. The rest - beware and read / believe the reports.
Overall this area is great and walks thru the vines really nice. Also a visit to Haut Koningsburg castle is well worth it and really interesting - get the tickets at the Riquewhr Tourist Information to avoid queing at the castle.

“Fabulous Gite spacious, full of Alsace character and immaculately kept, lovingly restored”

Our family stayed five days here in August and we consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found it. The owners Sylvie and Michael were extremely helpful and were full of wonderful suggestions for ourselves and our twin teen girls. The bikes were a huge plus for us to use and the location is excellent right downtown and yet if you wanted to go to neighbouring towns the local bus was only five minutes away This Gite has been lovingly restored by the owner Michael and the craftmenship is evident through out. The modern bathroom was well used by the family and appreciated in the heat. .Riquewihr is a fabulous walled medieval town with little traffic, safe and very beautiful surrounded by vineyards.We did not have a car but I think it would have been nice for a couple of days,I would not hesitate to highly recommend this Gite and this town is very verys special where tourists by the busloads just come to see it for the day. We thought ourselves extremely lucky to actually be staying in the town itself. Thanks Sylvie and Michael for an incredible stay!!.

“A charmingly rustique apartment in the heart of the Riquewihr”

Sylvie (the owner) was very friendly and helpful with renting newly renovated apartment in the heart of Riquewihr. The old-style construction had been maintained, consistent with other buildings in the village. Sylvie's emphasis on eco-tourism was also noted and appreciated.

The flat was as described with character befitting the village and surroundings.
It was immaculately clean and Sylvie the land lady was there to meet and greet and was very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English.
The beds were comfortable and the flat stays cool during the hot summer days.
Beware the small unseen step into the downstairs bedroom.
A great holiday and this an ideally placed apartment to see the Alsace in all it's glory
