What your guests will love about your home
TOP ONE: the neighbourhood : formerly a farming village, now part of Strasbourg but bordering on the forest on one end. TOP TWO: the vast, planted and sheltered terrasse, looking towards South-West, where one spends endless dining evenings with singing birds as a soundtrack. It communicates with the bright living room through a huge glass-door. We also have a large balcony, linking the kitchen and dining room, where we grow all sorts of aromatic herbs and tomatoes: just help yourselves! TOP THREE: the planning of the flat, which is particularly sunny and very convenient for one or two families. One bedroom + bathroom make up a little studio within the flat, securing intimacy. On the other end of the flat, the parents' bedroom with a door to the kids' bedroom, and a large bathroom. familles. In between is the common space: a large living room and dining room, and a separate kitchen. Also a laundry room. A separate space for everything and everyone!
What your guests will love about your neighborhood
Serenity and greenery. You'll be within Strasbourg, 400 m from the European institutions, yet a little in a village: old Alsacian farm houses, gardens all around, birds and butterfiles, strawberry-picking within 1 km. All public transport are around: bus within 2 minutes walk, tramway within 4 minutes walk. It takes up to 15 minutes to reach the old center.
Everything is a pedal push away. Short distances to city center and forest alike, coupled with widespread cyclable tracks in and out of the city, mean you can do everything on your bycicle. We have two bikes with a child seat and a bike trailer for two children in our garage. City-lent bikes within 300m.
All shops and conveniences within 3 minutes walk: supermarket, bi-weekly market, many charming restaurants, Kirn (a local institutions, Kirn is one of the best Strasbourg butchers), several exceptional French bakeries.
Simply ideal for varied, yet easy and restful vacation for one or two families. You'd have all imaginable baby and small kid paraphernalia, from secure beds to toys, swing, changing tables, bathtub, stroller, baby-carrying hiking backpack, and mini-bike. The safe and friendly house garden is shared with the other inhabitants of the house (one small family downstairs, one person upstairs - our apartment is on the first floor). The city is very child-friendly. Within 3 minutes walk, the mediatheque, parcs, canals and rivers. Within 5 minutes walk, the great Nordic swimming pool of Wacken, and the Pourtales Castle. Within 15 minutes, Strasbourg city center, Petite France, museums (several are designed just for children), but also the forest and swimming lakes. Within 30-45 minutes, you'll get to the great sights of Alsace: Mont Ste Odile, Haut Koenigsbourg (fantastic medieval castle, restaured by Viollet-le-Duc as was Notre-Dame), well-marked mountain hikes and waterfalls, tree-trailing attractions, barefoot trails, several wildlife parks... Our hiking maps and child-friendly itineraries are at your disposal. If you go for rental, our private garage can fit two cars.
