If you’d like to stay longer why not Visit Alsace?


Of course we’re biased but we believe Alsace is hard to beat for a holiday at any time of the year.  It’s a beautiful mix of mountains, vineyards and hop gardens peppered with stunning towns and villages.  Its unique architecture, language and culture add to its many charms.


There are lots of things to see and do (if you can tear yourself away from the many markets); including chateau, forts, vineyards and museums (the Lalique Museum at Wingen-Sur-Moder is just a short drive from our home).

If you feel the magic and sparkle of Christmas has been lost then try visiting during Advent.  The Christmas market in Strasbourg has been voted one of the best in Europe and it’s only a short drive over the border to take in the equally beautiful German market at Baden Baden.  We defy anyone not to be touched by the nostalgic charm of these annual events. 


COMING SOON - ‘The Island’ Gite


Built in the late 1700s our traditional courtyard-farmhouse is set in a quiet village near to the charming towns of Bouxwiller and Saverne in the Bas-Rhin region of Alsace.  That’s just under an hour’s drive to Strasbourg city. 


The village has a small shop, a restaurant and a pretty church.  The church bell is audible from our home and from the gite (when the windows are open or if you are in the courtyard) and whilst we find it charming we understand you may not!  Please be aware that the church bell strikes the hour, half hour and quarter hours.


The Island gite forms part of the first floor of the barn in the gated and private courtyard.  Recently renovated the open-plan gite has a corner kitchen (full size cooker, fridge and sink) with dining area, relaxing space with comfy sofa and TV (with UK digital channels), a bedroom area sleeping 2 in a standard double bed and shower room with shower, wash hand basin and WC.  You can park safely in the courtyard and there is a table and chairs for the all important al fresco dining.  Wifi is available.


Available all year round the gite has electric heating and is guaranteed to be clean and fresh on your arrival.  Bed linen, kitchen linen and towels are provided.  We are experienced hosts having run award-winning gites, a camping site and a 12-bed B&B for the last 13 years. 


Price £300 per week exclusive of tourist tax (around 1 Euro per person per night)

Short breaks available at £50 per night
