Spectacular and romantic loft apartment with stunning views and sunny covered terrace. The White Stork is the emblematic bird of Alsace. The home of the stork is perched, as is this unique and romantic apartment designed with a 'cathedral ceiling' under the roof ... The exceptional and atypical atmosphere of this apartment is mainly due both to its layout and the location of the old Renaissance house on top of which the holiday home of the White Stork is built. Perched atop the old rampart of 1291 - but accessible by a wide and comfortable staircase built to modern standards - this apartment offers a unique charm, romantic and unusual.

The exceptional and atypical atmosphere of this apartment is mainly due both to its layout and the location of the old Renaissance house on top of which the holiday home of the White Stork is built. Perched atop the old rampart of 1291 - but accessible by a wide and comfortable staircase built to modern standards - this apartment offers a unique charm, romantic and unusual. The roof structure rises to more than 5 meters above the living space which opens to the four cardinal points. A large window bay connects the sitting and dining areas to a covered terrace of 12 m2 facing south, in front of the roofs of the old medieval village of Riquewihr. Another window of the lounge opens to the east. Beyond the church tower, gables and roofs of the village, you can see the Schoenenbourg vineyards and the nearby village of Zellenberg. On clear days the view extends beyond the plain of Alsace and the river Rhine to the small volcanic hills of Kaiserstuhl Germany (excellent vineyard, just 45 minutes drive from Riquewihr) and to the mountains of the german Black Forest! On the other side, to the west, the dining area, kitchen and bedroom are overlooking the famous Thieves Tower at the corner of the rampart. The hillside vineyards of the Schoenenbourg hill give way to forests and mountains of the Vosges ... Finally, to the north, the windows of the bedroom are overlooking the impressive rampart of 1291 and offer exceptional views of the vineyards of Schoenenbourg! At harvest time, you'll take a ringside seat to harvesting the precious grapes, and throughout the year, you can follow the meticulous work of the winemaker.

Wow. This is the type of place you can only dream about. It is the top floor of an old winery from the 1500's that has been lovingly restored (and that shows). The pictures are absolutely accurate, and every need has been thought of. I...More

First the bad news. White Stork Apartment (WSA) is three floors up well-made, well-lit stairs. That's it for bad news. WSA is the best apartment we have ever used throughout multiple holidays in Europe. It's medieval monthly meets Vogue design. Powerful, lime-washed structural timbers. wooden...More

About the neighbourhood
Alsace is in eastern France on the Rhine River border with Germany. The Lonely Planet guides voted Alsace first among the top ten regions to be discovered in the world. Alsace is unquestionably spectacularly beautiful. A very special combination of history, culture, scenery, and especially food and wine makes it one of the most delightful places to visit in all of Europe Riquewihr is certainly the prettiest village in Alsace and certainly the jewel in the crown of the Alsace wine route - famous for the great Alsace wines produced here - the village looks today exactly as it did in the 16th Century. Riquewihr is a wonderful and romantic little medieval city hidden between the Vosges mountains and some of the most famous vineyards in Alsace.
Getting around
If you fly in for a longer stay we recommend you rent a car. For a short stay you may arrive by train in Colmar and from there take a bus or a taxi. We can arrange a taxi with an English speaking driver. Riquewihr is a very practical base to visit all Alsace, the Vosges mountains, the Black Forest in Germany and nearby Switzerland. We also can arrange electro-bikes for rent.
