We chose Riquewhir as a place to base ourselves for a week while discovering Alsace and all that the region in Christmas time had to offer. Its close proximity to so many attractions such as the infamous wine route, the Haut-Koenigsbourg Castle, Colmar and other stunning towns and villages (particularly this time of year with the Christmas markets), the German Black forest, Vosges mountains, Strasbourg, WW1 and WW2 sites and museums etc. We were not disappointed. The town itself is SO pretty, though i warn you, if you come in the pre-Christmas season it is ridiculously busy – with many of the roads blocked or turned into one-ways, so I strongly enourage you to arrive in the afternoon and before it turns dark to make the arrival process simpler. We didn’t due to traffic problems and regretted it!! that said, Our host Franck was very warm and friendly and happy to ensure we had everything we needed. The property is really well presented and its so special to visit such an historic old village and stay in a property that has the character of the town within it! It accommodated our family of two adults and two teenagers well and was very well equipped for self-catering – the produce at the local supermarket in Ribeauville was AMAZING! Still, we also loved trying out so many of the local restaurants and eateries which do not disappoint! Due to the time of year, the wineries are less active, but on the days it was fine, we enjoyed some lovely walks around the vine trails which were stunning ways to also enjoy views of the village a well as the wider area. If its war history you are into, plan ahead, as we discovered most places we hoped to visit were not open or the roads to them were closed. And don’t just rely on websites for info – call ahead! Lastly, it was fabulous to have the pre-arranged car space that comes with the property as street parking is hard to come by. We would highly recommend the property to others wanting to explore the area.
