Overview
Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Riquewihr, Haut-Rhin, Grand Est
Spectacular and romantic loft apartment with stunning views and sunny covered terrace.

The White Stork is the emblematic bird of Alsace. The home of the stork is perched, as is this unique and romantic apartment designed with a "cathedral ceiling" under the roof ...
The exceptional and atypical atmosphere of this apartment is mainly due both to its layout and the location of the old Renaissance house on top of which the holiday home of the White Stork is built.

Perched atop the old rampart of 1291 - but accessible by a wide and comfortable staircase built to modern standards - this apartment offers a unique charm, romantic and unusual. The roof structure rises to more than 5 meters above the living space which opens to the four cardinal points. A large window bay connects the sitting and dining areas to a covered terrace of 1...

First the bad news. White Stork Apartment (WSA) is three floors up well-made, well-lit stairs. That's it for bad news. WSA is the best apartment we have ever used throughout multiple holidays in Europe. It's medieval monthly meets Vogue design. Powerful, lime-washed structural timbers. wooden floors, comfortable furniture, intelligent design and amenities come together to make a delightful retreat at...

This apartment was the first thing we booked for our holiday almost 12 months prior to going, even before the airfares. The itinerary of our holiday was also designed around the apartment booking. As the days approached to when we would drive to Riquewihr, we hoped that we wouldn't be disappointed, as sometimes can happen when you are looking forward...

The unit was on the top floor of a walk up but well worth the climb. The views of the town's roof tops, church steeple and vineyards were beautiful. The unit had one king size bed, a modern kitchen and living room with a balcony. Excellent bathroom with a shower. The unit was totally updated and modern. Many a morning...

About the neighborhood
Alsace is in eastern France on the Rhine River border with Germany. The Lonely Planet guides voted Alsace first among the top ten regions to be discovered in the world. Alsace is unquestionably spectacularly beautiful. A very special combination of history, culture, scenery, and especially food and wine makes it one of the most delightful places to visit in all of Europe

Riquewihr is certainly the prettiest village in Alsace and certainly the jewel in the crown of the Alsace wine route - famous for the great Alsace wines produced here - the village looks today exactly as it did in the 16th Century. Riquewihr is a wonderful and romantic little medieval city hidden between the Vosges mountains and some of the most famous vineyards in Alsace.
Getting around
If you fly in for a longer stay we recommend you rent a car. For a short stay you may arrive by train in Colmar and from there take a bus or a taxi. We can arrange a taxi with an English speaking driver.

Riquewihr is a very practical base to visit all Alsace, the Vosges mountains, the Black Forest in Germany and nearby Switzerland.

We also can arrange electro-bikes for rent.
