The exceptional and typical atmosphere of this apartment is mainly due both to its preserved traditional timber and its location on the second floor of the old Renaissance house offering charming views in all directions.
Accessible by the wide and comfortable staircase re-built to modern standards - this apartment offers space and comfort with a unique charm, romantic and unusual. It opens to the four cardinal points. A large bow window facing south connects the sitting and dining areas, in front of the roofs of the old medieval village of Riquewihr.
Windows in the alsatian dining space open 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 Kayserstuhl 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 bow window of the master bedroom offers some stunning views on 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 ... The same view is accessible from the bathroom en suite.
Finally, to the north, the windows of the second and very spacious 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.
This apartment is outstanding in all the Alsace region and is our most comfortable apartment for 4 people.
N.B. the bathtub spa system visible in the photos unfortunately does not work at the moment due to the impossibility of finding a spare electronic component.
