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 the top of the stairs. It's large, light and airy. Very comfortable bedding, excellent bathroom...

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 to something so much. Nothing could be further from reality, we parked outside the old...

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 we would sit on the balcony and enjoy breakfast with our traveling friends that had...

We have just returned from our Christmas break in The White Stork and can honestly say that the carent be a better place to spend Christmas. The apartment was much bigger than we anticipated and the views from all the windows were stunning, it has such a lovely calm atmosphere and despite the hustle and bustle outside was incredibly quiet. The decor is lovely, right down to beautiful cutlery and crockery, we have stayed in...

I can only endorse the five star reviews previously posted. The views of the vineyards, the Rhine valley and the Riquewihr rooftops from the apartment and balcony are simply stunning. This is truly luxury accommodation with high quality fixtures and fittings, everything designed for comfort. The attention to detail is superb e.g. vigorous water pressure in the shower but soft flow from the sink tap, remote control bedside light switches, bathrobes and slippers to name...
