A very Happy New Year to all of you!

Riquewihr at dusk by rainy weather
Riquewihr at dusk by rainy weather. A beautiful medieval city whatever the weather or the season. Thank you to our friends Christine and Michel for giving us the opportunity to take that picture from their window …

We will be back soon with new posts about what to see and what to do in the Upper Rhine valley.

In 2010 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 the jewel in the crown and looks today exactly as it did in the 16th Century. A beautiful city, whatever the weather or the season. Indeed.

Our vacation rentals in Riquewihr, Alsace are the perfect base to visit all Alsace, the Vosges mountains and even nearby Germany and Switzerland
