“so charming”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We started our visit by arriving at the house one very dark foggy evening, and the owner's rep had been thoughtful enough to park her car at the edge of the road with her headlights on so that we could see the driveway. The house was cozy, clean, and well-equipped, the location, a few minutes outside of "downtown" Barr was quiet and relaxing, and once the clouds lifted, the view of the stars from the skylight in the master bedroom was spectacular. While we were there in the winter, I can see that it would be lovely spot in the summer, with a spacious yard and outdoor eating area, with hiking trails nearby.

My only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

“Wonderful House”
Reviewed 16 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

This home was a great place to stay- the house feels like a home as soon as you walk in and all amenities are there! Main bed was huge and really comfortable.
Barr village is pretty and a good place to check out Colmar and Strasbourg from. We also drove into smaller outlying villages and found lovely buildings, ruins and a monastery.
Great place for us to stop for a few days.
Thanks Simon.

“Way Better than Advertised”
Reviewed 23 October 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent three months in this French Gite (vacation rental) during the summer of 2015. It could not have been better and the pictures and description on this website do not do it justice. The owners are fantastic. The house is wonderfully furnished and supplied. The location is even better. Everything was wonderful.

Perfect for a couple or small family that wants to spend time in this wonderful unknown region of France. Especially if you enjoy Alsatian wines and food.

The only drawback is that eventually you have to leave.

Special thanks to the owners and the friendly people of Barr for this brilliant summer of 2015!

“Luxury in the heart of the Alsace Wine Route”

Family friendly house with super king size bed, jacuzi bath, sauna and games room. BBQs in the evening by a small babbling brook and friendly french speaking neighbours. Owners are very helpful, yet unobtrusive. Great hotel only 3 minutes walk away for dinner if you dont want to cook, wine tasting house with a wide variety of grapes in Barr itself. Would highly recommend

“Just booked our third stay”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in July 2012

The title says it all--we like this gite so much that we're going back for the third time in five years--this year we want to see Alsace in the pre-Christmas season and enjoy the chill of early winter. As we said in a review a few years ago, this gite is one of the best-appointed, most comfortable places we've ever stayed in France, and we do very much appreciate the modern technology touches. We've mostly seen Alison during our previous visits, and she's been a great help.
The best features of this gite for us--comfortable furniture, very workable main level, internet access, and central location for day trips in Alsace and Germany and for shopping (we love the Palais du Pain D'Epices in Gertwiller and the Picard in Obernai). We look forward with pleasurable anticipation to our next visit later in the year.
