“A wonderful holiday experience...a cosy and comfortable house”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2014

This house is situated in the countryside, very idyllic with the little stream, a picturesque village nearby (Barr), beautifully furnished, much space, we felt at home right away! We were welcomed by a very nice lady who showed us around and said we could contact her if we had any questions. There are 3 sofas in the living-room and also a huge comfortable´s a wonder we ever left the house! It was so cosy we could have stayed there all day...but we didn´t, because there are many things to do in the area around: walking in the mountains, visiting charming villages, wine-tasting, eating out, visiting "La Montagne des Singes"in Kintzheim with all these facetious monkeys...We enjoyed our time in alsace and we highly recommend this beautiful holiday home!

“We would stay here again.”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2014

A great house as a base for visiting this very attractive part of France. A beautiful, light and spacious lounge/diner, well-equipped kitchen, lovely bathroom, with the bonus of an additional shower and loo along with the sauna in the basement. The second bedroom would be good for children but is not ideal for an adult - we would have preferred a single bed and more storage. Outstanding value for money. An attractive setting, and close to the interesting little town of Barr, and an excellent supermarket in Gertwiller. The friendly and helpful owners live next door.

“séjour top!”

nous avons passé les vacances de mai dans cette maison luxueuse avec cuisine superbement équipée, salle de séjour de détente maximale et 2 salles de bains de rêve... quelle chaleureuse ambiance de vacances. La famille Holt a été sympa comme tout, elle nous a invité à un bbq en famille et c'était chouette de se parler comme si on était de vieux amis.

“Great romantic break”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2013

The communication with Mr Holt was excellent, that with Gite De France was no more than OK. The house was in excellent order - probably one of the best equipped we have met and the lady with the key met us promptly and showed us round the property. Unfortunately the instructions for the appliances were not available but this will be rectified. Not a major issue, but would have avoided domestic disagreements. As a mature couple, the reason we chose this place was the sauna, hot-tub (not what I would have called a hot tub, but an excellent spa bath with space for two) & log-fire. There was a reasonable selection of books and Dvd's. The setting close to the stream was beautiful and would be great in the summer when you would be able to sit outside. Had we had better clothing we could have done some great treks in the snow-covered forests.

“Springtime in alsace”

Reviewed 29 Jan 2013

Despite arriving in pouring rain, we had a lovely reception at the door. The house looked really lovely and I'd did not disappoint on entering. The kitchen was very well equipped and had a lovely view out over the stream below. The living room was nice and spacious and plenty of room to sit and relax. There were plenty of leaflets to give ideas for days out and there was a well stocked book shelf too. The master bedroom was very comfortable and the children (aged 3 and 5) slept well in the bunk beds. The sauna downstairs was an added bonus especially as it was a particularly wet week. Barr is a lovely quaint town with a number of good bakeries and shops. We ate very well at Caveau Folie Marco. Food shopping was a delight at the Super U in Gertwiller. The rest of our holiday was spent revisiting old haunts as we used to live in Molshiem. We did have a wonderful family day out at the Volerie des aigles in Kintzheim as well as the Montagne des Singes. We also headed to the Parc des Cigognes in Kintzheim. The views nearby were stunning. Having not had any children when we lived in alsace we were unsure whether there would be enough to keep them occupied but there is an abundance of activities. (Modern swimming pool in Obernai also good for a rainy day). We had a lovely stay and would highly recommend the beautiful blue house in Barr! Thanks for making it such a fun stay.

gite très confortable et très bien entretenu dans une très belle région ou nous avons eu très chaud l'eté 2012 car semaine canicule. Cependant nous avons été déçus par l'accueil du propriétaire et par la terrasse et le jardin peu accessibles et occupés en permanence par le propriétaire et ses amis, famille, on ne se sent pas chez soi,sans parler des odeurs de tabac fumé sur la terrasse qui montaient dans la loccation...c'est bien dommage car ça enlève pour notre part des étoiles a ce gite que nous ne conseillerons pas a nos proches. De plus gîte non accessible pour personnes à mobilité réduite (exemple : WC à l'étage et/ou au sous-sol)= trop de marches pour accés au gîte ou à ces pièces.

Response from the owner Si le client avait mentionné aucun de ces problèmes pendant qu'ils étaient là, j'aurais pu faire quelque chose pour eux. Fermeture d'une fenêtre sur les 13 fenêtres du 1er étage aurait éliminé le problème avec quelqu'un qui fume à l'extérieur. Il ya 2 toilettes dans la maison et le salon est au premier étage. Toute personne ayant des problèmes de mobilité doivent choisir leur logement avec soin. Désolé!

“a charming house”

Reviewed 25 Jan 2013

english-style house spacious, beautiful surroundings, beautiful country very good home beautiful villages and castles things to see

“Perfect - the house could not have been any nicer”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2012

The house is beautiful! Bright and cheerful decor. Great location. Everything we needed was there. The kitchen is modern and well equipped. The large living-dining area is so comfortable with the fireplace, three large sofas, and chair and a half. The bathroom is luxury with the large jacuzzi. The house was immaculate. Just far enough out of town to be peaceful and quiet; close enough for quick access to restaurants and shops. The owner provides lots of information about local and regional points of interest. We loved the house so much that we have already booked another stay.

“Escale idéale sur la Route des Vins”

Reviewed 8 Mar 2012

Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances ! Les propriétaires sont accueillants et savent rester discrets. La maison est très propre, confortable et bien équipée. Le cadre est très joli avec le passage d'un ruisseau derrière la maison et la vue sur des falaises depuis le salon. Parfait pour les moments cocoonings, avec au programme : sauna, jacuzzi et feu de cheminée. De plus, il y a de nombreuses activités pour découvrir la région telles que la route des vins, visite du Mont Saint Odile et les parcours de randonnées.

“Lovely gite in a very calming location”

Reviewed 25 Jan 2012

This was a great gite with a fab log fire, and the added bonus of a sauna and jacuzzi bath. We loved listening to the steam (bit of a torrent in January!) upstairs in the morning. It was perfect for the two of us and our baby - and would also be ideal for a family of 4/5. Free Wifi was very useful too! Our only quibble was a few of the light bulbs in the sitting room lamps werent working and neither was the outside light or downstairs shower. However we had a very relaxing stay - it would be really lovely sitting outside next to the stream in the summer.
