That's what its all about isn't it, position. This site has a great position, just down one of the outer rings of Eguisheim. If you don't know what I mean by rings, look at a map, Google maps will do - Eguisheim is a funny little place. Instead of walls, it has ramparts of houses, quaint little timber frames houses, that run in a several concentric rings around the town. You can walk the circuit in about 3/4 hour, ideal after dinner stroll.
One thing you may have trouble with in Eguisheim is the quaiintness. If you like quaint, you will love it. My wife and I joke that we can return to London having had enough of it for part of next year also. Maybe we can go to Iceland to make up for it.
Gite is very comfortable, two double bedrooms, galley kitchen and dining. Very compact - but thats all you need when you've overdosed on quaint!
Pascal the owner runs the shop underneath "Legend des deus Pierres" (whats that all about, I don't know... you will need to ask Pascal, his English is charmingly French, but good humour prevails).
Surroundings are fantastic, you can walk in the vineyards (they run pretty much all the way to Strasbourg I believe - miles of them) in the evening. You can walk up to the Three Chateaus on the hill behind, about an hours walk - worth it for the view across the Rhine valley. You can walk in the Vosges proper, I recommend the walk we did today, drive to Paisis beyond Orbey, park and walk up to the Black lake, and if you are feeling energetic go on to the White lake (part of a hydroelectric scheme like the one in Wales where they pump water between the lakes). Saw Black woodpeckers, goshawk, red squirrels, got to clamber over scree. Great 3-4 hour walk. Good maps recommended and good boots and all the gear obvs.
Wery good and authentic place.
Clearly and quietly.
Private parking is available.Egiushaim is wery nice on Christmas.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. katya was an exemplary hostess who was willing to go to great lengths to make our stay enjoyable. It was so convenient to be able to cook our own meals or walk a short distance to the many restaurants close by. We highly recommend this apartment and would have no hesitation staying here again. Be sure to get groceries from colmar before settling in at eguisheuim.
