The site

The guest house, in a little village at the foot of the Vosges mountains and just around the corner from the vineyards of the Alsace Wine Route, is 25 minutes from Strasbourg by car or by train (the station is within walking distance), and 30 minutes from Colmar. Nearby you will find the town of Obernai, and the Mont Sainte Odile peak with its monastery/convent and ancient Pagan Wall.
In this modern, environmentally-friendly wood beam house, situated in a calm area at the edge of the village, the atmosphere is one of conviviality tinted with an artist’s inspiration. There is easy access to walks along the Bruche, our river, where you may catch site of local emblematic fauna (storks).

The bedroom

The room is refined yet comfortable, colourful and cosy, decorated with care and elegance paying particular attention to the bed linen which is composed of high-quality natural fibres. The window looks out over the flower garden.
The breakfast room blends modernity with a touch of the vintage, and during fine weather breakfast can be served outside on the patio.
There is a private bathroom with walk-in shower.

The garden

You have immediate access to a flower garden and a herb garden, with plenty of places to sit and relax in the shade of the big oak or the wild cherry trees. It is possible to go walks and longer hikes directly from the house, and I have a number of suggestions of itineraries.

Your hostess

My family, my painting and relating to others are all crucial parts of my life, as is nature. My decision to welcome people into my home stems from a deep sense of conviviality and sharing, and an understanding of the importance of listening.
To this end I have given free rein to creativity and my passion for interior decorating, and outside to my love of colours in the planning of the flowerbeds. Free expression is another vital element of my life, and my painting workshop, « les couleurs spontanées »is as important to me as the air I breathe. It is an area of freedom where respect is welcome and negative criticism has no place.
If you are tempted, I can share my passion for art with you : a moment of creativity with paints, clay or paper (Japanese paper, Origami).
My Green World, where nature reigns, with perhaps a visit from a deer, a swooping buzzard, an inquisitive red or black squirrel... and all this within a stone’s throw from numerous places of historical or natural interest. Come and recharge your batteries, relax, create, and sample the gastronomic specialities : so much to do in the beautiful region of Alsace.
