Vibrant flat at first floor of picturesque home composed of two flats of a same capacity. You can rent the whole house under the anounce "Gorgeous village scene to be lived".
Your flat is contemplating a ready to enjoy fully equiped whimsical garden in the heart of the main street of an emblematic medieval city located on the Alsace wine road. This fairy world buzzing with charms at the foot of an iconic medieval tower is close by foot to everything you may need or wish.

The space
At the first floor flat of this fairy world, you know that at least four guests are going to enjoy the bedrooms (one bedroom with a queen size bed, one bedroom with two 90cm wide beds side by side) when the rest of the group are going to use the angle sofa/bed and the travel beds I supply to babies.
The matresses are of high quality. You sleep well in these quiet rooms.
To enjoy the experience with your extended family/group of friends, it would be great to book as well the second floor flat "Your nest in heaven".
You can have an idea of the whole experience through my first guests comments by going to my ad "Gorgeous village scene to be lived" on this site.
The whole house has got a four star ministerial classification and there is wifi everywhere in the house.

Let me describe you this first floor more accurately.
The living-room communicates with the kitchen through a door (the second floor is an open space through the beams).
The sitting area is delimited by an angle sofa-bed (at the second floor there are two separated sofa beds). You can also find there a flat-screen TV, a table that can accommodate ten people, and a big cupboard with a choice of tableware and tea pots to cater for regiments. However cooking in this first floor kitchen appears more like a Snow White mirage than a laboratory protocol even if you find all the equipments you may need (refrigerator/freezer, tea/coffee station, oven, micro-wave, toaster,...). It's when you see all the lovely crockery passing from hand to hand through dish towels (sorry but in terms of space I prefered to provide you with a maximum of equipments than with a dishwasher) that you realize that dish washing is surprisingly not a chore here.
In the babtroom of this first floor there is a bath tub which also acts as a shower (at the second floor there is a shower), a washbasin and a washing machine. Toilets are next to the bathroom.
Under you living room windows can be enjoyed the one and only garden of the old main street. I everyday feel priviledged to be able to enhance and share this semi-wild sanctuary. From the comfort of this place you can savour peace or joy alternatively or all at the same time.
Good energies of a city endowed with a real soul are ready to be drawed from at leisure just on the other side of the garden wall.
Your safe peace haven is equiped and ready for great relaxing or celebrating times.
Dear guests-to-be, I think you nearly have it all here.

Guest access
Under your windows, you enjoy the garden and the cute courtyard with a kind of bubble atmosphere where young kids like ot play (toys at their disposal).
You can use a shed to store your bulky items (pushchairs,...) and there is a space to store your bicycles.
Clean linen is available all along your stay (sheets, towels, dish towels, swimming pool towels,...).
By foot :
- you reach all the restaurants, shops and services you may need or desire
- you are in contact with vineyards' life
- you are in woodlands spreaded with castle ruins and funny shaped rocks with intriguing names
- you are in vivifying or relaxing waters (two swimming pools and their facilities in Ribeauvillé. There is also a spa at the casino).

Location

Ribeauvillé, Alsace, France

The backdrop of this operetta setting is made of the vineyards' soft hills on which colorful houses gushing with flowers stand out.
On their mountain in the background, solemn and mysterious ruins of three castles are contemplating the scene and a great organisator seems to change the lights and colors everyday.
This is a theature assuredly dedicated to the best of us all and to our most beautiful feelings.
Imagine now that every component of this magnificent picture is just minutes away. Imagine for example that you can be at the top of the donjon of the biggest castle, the Saint-Ulrich castle, in just 45 minutes by foot and experience there the contact with the old stones, the whispering nature below, the sky above...
That's just a part of what Ribeauvillé has to offer on the other side of the garden wall.

My project, my mission for you here is to provide you with a safe, clean and charmful space where you'll be able to : - sleep well - eat well thanks to good local tips you will never be short of - reach out for fresh air and nature, which already can begin from the garden (the only garden of the main street) - connect to the soul of this special city fast because the charm begins from inside and Life, colours, and Spirits is what I inject here day after day in every season - benefit the strenghts of this territory genuinely and directly. At my place in Ribeauvillé you're going to enjoy all the advantages of immersion tourism -as opposed to a surface kind of tourism- in varied ways. First, you've got all the ingredients to regenerate peacefully and at your own pace here in your safe haven. It already happened. They thought they had it all here, so they didn't feel the need to move. When local is the first path to eternity... That's the magic of a city endowed with a real soul. So, wether you just enjoy here or make a move to go and meet other pearls of the vineyards, you're going to have it all anyway. Because by having your headquarters at my place, you are definitely not going to stay at the surface of things. Here you will not just pass in Alsace. Quelques mots en Français. Le projet que je porte ici est de continuer à ouvrir et partager cette belle propriété, qui sinon ne profiterait clairement qu'à quelques-uns, en prenant simplement bien soin de vous. Je veille ainsi à ce que votre home en plein coeur de la Grand Rue soit non seulement votre havre de paix, l'endroit où vous pouvez vous refaire à votre rythme et à votre façon, mais aussi le premier endroit où vous pourrez profiter des bonnes choses de la vie locale dans le confort de vos appartement et aussi de l'unique jardin de la Grand Rue qui a déjà été le décor de très belles assemblées. Mon plus grand plaisir c'est quand je vous laisse les clés en confiance et que la maison se transforme en ruche de Vie. En m'éloignant je sais que vous dormirez bien, que vous trouverez tout ce qu'il faut, et j'imagine déjà le plus matinal d'entre vous aller chercher le pain le matin dans l'air vif de la Grand Rue quand les hirondelles tournoient joyeusement autour de la Tour. Le soir depuis la rue, il faut que vous sachiez que votre maison est pour les passants comme une belle lanterne allumée, ce qui signifie tant de choses... "Votre unique mission, si vous l'acceptez", sera de prendre bien soin de cela, et si vous voulez bien, de laisser une petite lumière allumée pour fournir aussi un peu de magie à ceux qui passent dans la nuit et n'ont pas la chance de vivre l'expérience de ce merveilleux home. La solide et vénérable Tour des Bouchers, tour médiévale et phare emblématique au pied duquel se trouve la maison et son jardin extra-ordinaire prêts à tous les repos et fêtes, c'est un lien entre le passé et votre présent parmi nous. En prenant appui sur l'âme palpable de cette ville, et grâce à chacune de vos présences, c'est le petit monde du pied de la tour que nous (ré)-enchantons et continuons à partager. Je remercie tout ceux qui sont déjà passés à la maison via les autres sites, merci pour votre soutien dans ce projet de partage et pour vos commentaires spontanés et chaleureux. Les quatre étoiles du classement ministériel ne sont réellement rien comparé à celles que je vois briller dans les yeux des visages radieux au moment du départ. Alors bienvenue dans cet univers intemporel et ressourçant, bienvenue dans mon jardin semi-sauvage à l'orée de l'humanité. Bienvenue aux merveilleuses expériences 2017 que je vous concocte dans notre belle marmite aux mille et une saveurs. Meilleures pensées à vous tous Sophie
