About This Listing
Self-contained holiday apartment within a recently renovated 16th century Villa. Located in the heart of the wine making region of Alsace. Comprising of:
- 1 large bedroom with a king size bed, wardrobe and breakfast area (all linen and towels provided).

This bright and spacious apartment is situated within a villa-type house in the heart of Gueberschwihr. The house, built in 1620, was once the home of the local blacksmith. It has been lovingly refurbished to retain its original features and charm.
The "villa" boasts a large swimming pool and terrace, perfect on a hot summers day and for enjoying a glass of the local alsatian wine at night.
Gueberschwihr is an authentic alsatian village, full of charm. Ideal for walking, biking, fishing or visiting the local wine-makers. With its own selection of excellent restaurants you can chose to eat out in the village or venture into Colmar (the local town) if you chose. It is located next to the Vosges mountain range and within 10 minutes to Colmar. Strasbourg is a 30 minute train ride away with neighbouring Germany and Switzerland on your doorstep.
The apartment is within easy access of the Mulhouse-Basel Euro Airport (40 minutes by car with bus and train links available).
We are happy to arrange the following for you, just let us know! :
- Collection at the airport or Colmar train station.
- Wine tasting or "dégustation" with our favourite wine producers in the village.
- Reservations in any of the local restaurants.
We look forward to hosting you!

Michael was great, lots of communication and he was waiting for us on arrival. Took us to meet the neighbor winemaker right away! The bathroom is good with a great shower. A real washer and dryer! Kitchen a bit small (no coffee maker, a kettle and instant coffee) and bed is two mattresses pushed together, but all in all a solid 4-5 for the place, a 5 for michael, a 5 for location
Our stay in Alsace could not have been any better. Michael thought of everything when putting this Airbnb together. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals and the washer AND dryer were a godsend to long term travelers like us.
The village itself is charming and looks like a postcard from the past. Michael and Russell (the owner and "neighbor") both gave us great suggestions for dining and sight seeing. Russell was so friendly and welcoming. My son told us he wants "someone like him when we get back home" :).
We hope to one day return to visit our new friends and drink more cremant d"Alsace!!
The apartment was very comfortable, very cozy, and had everything you would need. Michael was easy to contact and quick to respond, and offered and map and many suggestions of things to see.
I'd recommend the place to anyone!
appartement tout a fait conforme au descriptif, nickel avec cuisine équipée, salle de bain, tv TNT fançaise et anglaise. petite table pour déjeuner. Michael est très sympa nous a indiqués les restaurants du village et (website hidden) nous avait préparé la bouteille de crémant, de l'eau, du café instantané à disposition, linge de toilette ... ; des prestations hôtelières.
L'appartement dans une vielle bâtisse vigneronne, dans un petit village typique et calme. Par contre la voiture est la bienvenue car c'est un peu perdu dans les vignes (mais Colmar n'est pas loin : a 1/4 d 'heure de voiture).
Très bon séjour nous reviendrons si nous repassons dans la région.
C'était notre 1er pas avec Airbnb et qu'elle surprise!
Michael est un hôte formidable. Nous avions une bouteille de crémant au frigo, vraiment top!
Je recommande chaleureusement cet appartement situé au milieu des plus beaux marchés de noël et très proche de Colmar!
Au plaisir Michael!
Buena elección. La casa es tal y como aparece en las fotos. La cocina está bien equipada, y todo es muy nuevo, la cama es cómoda y estaba todo limpio. Se agradece dejar el coche dentro de la misma casa. La calefacción y el agua caliente funciona muy bien.
El pueblo es muy agradable y está en el centro de Alsacia. A 10 minutos de Colmar (y el hipermercado para la compra).
Muy agradable y recomendable
About the Host, Michael
My name is Michael, I am originally from South Africa but have been living in France with my wife for the last couple of years. We both love to travel and I enjoy fishing and golf in my spare time. I fell in love with Alsace as soon as I arrived and look forward to hosting other people so they can experience everything that the region has to offer.
