We were originally looking to stay in Strasbourg but couldn't get a room because of an EU Parliament meeting....lucky for us! I expanded our search and found this special B&B.
The countryside was a nice change and it was easy to get to Strasbourg. The train was an option if you didn't want to drive. We had the Tulipe Suite and it was all five stars: the decor, the comfort, the bathroom. We would pay three to four times in California for this caliber of a room.
Besides the beauty of the place, the welcoming warmth from Sylvie and Philippe made us feel that we were visiting family in Alsace. Having dinner there is a must. Sylvie is a great cook, and the conversation with Sylvie and Philippe made the evening.
Breakfast is all farm fresh and Sylvie makes most everything from scratch.
We fell in love with Scotch, their kitty. We would have liked to have packed her up with us.
We took a jar of Sylvie's homemade jam. We just finished it and wish we had more. We also wish we could find more places like this on our travels.
