This B&B is definitely well worth booking if you are visiting the area. We were made immediately welcome on arrival by our hosts Christelle and Pascal who cannot do enough to help and are very friendly. . The rooms are part of a very old building and have been renovated and modernised but are still in keeping with the ambience of the Vieux Pressoir. Our room was large enough to have a seating area, the bathroom was modern and very clean and overall the room was charming. The view from our room over vineyards was beautiful.
While Christelle seems charged with managing front of house, Pascal is chef and we ate in the restaurant both nights as the food is absolutely delicious! Definitely not to be missed! The breakfast also drew an "Ahhhhh..." from us when we walked into the breakfast room. The quality and amount is staggering. Little pots of creamy yogurt with fresh raspberries and raspberry coulis, cereals, fresh crispy bread, almond, chocolate and plain croissants, a selection of ham, cheeses and jams with plenty of fresh tea or coffee each morning was a beautiful way to start the day. Christelle is always at hand to check if everything is OK and to ensure that all your needs are met.
The village of Itterswiller is a lovely example of the villages on the Route des Vins. It is made up of medieval looking houses as well as more modern chalets but all are in keeping with one another and decorated with sumptuous displays of flowers in every manner of basket. In fact the flower displays are one of the highlights of the Route that will remain in our memories. There are plenty of opportunities to taste and buy wine from the Alsace region in the village whether from shops or the vine growers themselves.
When we left Christelle and Pascal came out to wave us off which was a nice parting touch. We cannot praise our hosts and their establishment highly enough.
