The 'Fox & the Grapes' is aptly named. The famous Fox has always been around Riquewihr, on the paths on the edge of forests and vineyards. In the French classical literature there is a famous fable by Jean de la Fontaine called the Fox and the Grapes.

The nod to the fable is even easier than this charming apartment, romantic and comfortable to perfection, has a great location, on the first floor of our big Renaissance house on the ramparts of the year 1291, with stunning views over the famous Grand Cru vineyards of Schoenenbourg. This holiday apartment (gite) is ideal for a stay in Riquewihr, in any season, especially for those interested in wine and vine work. In fall, you will have front row seats for the harvest!

We loved our stay in this beautiful little "gite"! But most of all, we loved the manager there, Valerie. During our stay in Riquewihr, we were involved in an auto accident. Fortunately, not our fault, but without Valerie guiding us through all the red tape, speaking to the car rental people, advising us as to proper procedure, it would have... more
