Colmar Cottage to Rent

 

 

The Location: 

The cottage is in the Alsace region in the north east of France.  Nestled in the village of Wintzenheim, it is part of "Grand Colmar" as the centre of Colmar is only three kilometres away.  Colmar is a fascinating city, the third largest in Alsace.  

 

Colmar

 

The Village and Surrounding Area:  

Wintzenheim has the following shops and services, all within walking distance of the cottage: a supermarket, open from Monday to Saturday 8 am to 8:30pm, three boulangeries, two epiceries, including one that sells only local products including wine and cheese, a butchery, three wine producers right next door, a post office, four banks, a pharmacy, two hair dressers, two beauty salons, a flower shop, a tobacco shop/newsagent and an alteration shop. 

For dining out, there are three restaurants, a cafe and some take away shops.  There is also an under cover market selling local products every Tuesday evening and Friday morning.

Just five minutes drive away is the well-preserved old town of Colmar, renowned for colombage houses, many architectural landmarks and its museums. The area is lovely in all seasons.  In summer, the flowers are delightful and you can relax on the terrace of a cafe; and in winter, the very popular Christmas Markets are legendary.

There are many charming villages around Colmar with the same type of colorful colombage houses. You might like to visit Eguisheim or Kaysersberg which both have been voted "best village in France" 2013 and 2017 respectively.

For the wine connoisseur, we are located on the Wine Route and there are many wine producers around (Alsace Wine and Alsace Cremant) and they offer wine tasting and winery tours.

One of the main attraction of the region (apart from Colmar and the cute little villages around), is the Haut- Koenigsbourg Castle, built during the 12th century. It is most visited medieval castle in France and has breath taking views.

Reviews: 

"Five stars. We stayed at the cottage for a couple of days over Christmas. The place was very clean, cozy, comfortable, quiet and nicely decorated. Good location, parking is available and the hosts were very responsive. Recommended!"  - Adrianna

"Super nice and cosy house, perfect for a romantic Alsatian weekend. .. very reactive and helpful hosts - thank you! - Alessandro

" .. spotless and stylish. It is located in a private "tiny house" in (the) backyard. The place is quiet, very clean and freshly renovated. We were able to sleep 4 people with the bedroom and the living room. Overall, a very good option if you want to discover Alsace."  - Matthias

"AMAZING little cottage that looks exactly the same as on the pictures. The place was sparkling clean, and we fell in love with the bubble bath! Rose is on top of it when it comes to communication; we got there two hours in advance and didn't have any issues checking in early. Location is perfect - only a 5-10 minutes ride from Colmar, which is such a great city around Xmas time with the Xmas market, mulled wine and gingerbread. Would definitely come back!" - Laura
