“A most convenient base and lovely gîte and hosts”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

Right in the heart of exquisite Riquewihr yet mostly quiet, especially in the evening. Restaurants, wine and Alsace products shops just yards away. Wonderful views from vineyard walks close by.
We felt we knew Sylvie by the time we met her! She is friendly, most helpful and enjoys speaking excellent English. She and her husband spent several winters renovating this 1619 house into 3 gîtes ( thick walls make each very quiet)., with faultless taste in furnishings, bedding and a state-of -the art modern bathroom. Though small, it is planned to make the most of space and the large bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in.
Her visitors come from all over the world and often stay 2-3 nights. In our 10 day stay we found the good Leclerc supermarket in Ribeauvillé very useful. Among restaurants, we can recommend 'La Grappe d'Or' . Although getting in and out required some skill, we were glad to have taken up Sylvie's suggestion of private parking next to the Gîte rather than meter parking in the area around the ramparts.
We would love to return to this beautiful area - just wish it wasn't such a long drive from the UK!

“Lovely Apartment; Great Location & Suggestions for Future Consideration”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

A lovely apartment, a great location and a kind host: a winning combination for a very relaxing week in Riquewihr. From our first correspondence Silvie was ready to assist and answer questions. She met us upon arrival, showed us around her tiny, but lovely apartment and gave us a brief introduction to the beautiful village of Riquewihr. There is also a short written guide with suggestions for things to see in the area, restaurant recommendations as well as some practical information about the apartment. Authentique had most if not all the amenities we would have liked. I'd like to give a list of what we liked and a couple of recommendations which we think will add to the overall comfort of the rental.

Positives: a friendly, kind host; a well kept, spotlessly clean and overall comfortable apartment; a comfortable bed and nice bedding; an excellent bathroom which included a hair dryer, lots of toilet tissue and towels; a 2 minute walk to restaurants and shops; a fairly well equipped kitchen; convenient private parking; a selection of books and videos; good wifi; iron & ironing board; TV.

Things to consider: renters who intend to prepare meals and/or stay for a week or more, would benefit from having a cutting board, a larger oven casserole dish (or roaster) and a clothes washer. However our biggest complaint was the sitting area: the small sofa (bed) in the dining/living area was very uncomfortable for lounging and too cramped for 2 people to read or watch tv in the evenings. The only alternative was a kitchen chair. A more detailed guide explaining how various appliances worked would also be helpful.

However our overall experience was positive and we would certainly recommend this lovely, recently remodelled apartment. Thank you Sylvie. We enjoyed "Authentique" and your kind hospitality.

“Totally Recommended”

Sorry for the late review Sylvie - only just back home !
This absolutely charming apt cannot be recommended enough. From the greeting by the delightful Sylvie until we left we just loved it . Our only regret was not being able to stay longer than our 2 nights. Riquewihr itself is absolutely charming. The apt has been renovated with great care & attention by Sylvie & Michael & is a total credit to them . They obviously care about the old building ( built I think around 1640 ) & it shows . It is very nicely decorated & has everything you need ( including a Nespresso machine ) . Spacious with a separate living area & bedroom & a lovely bathroom with very nice linen. It is up some stairs if mobility a problem Sylvie is very helpful with information & the apt is close to the wee village - just a very close walk . Parking is provided next door too. Just beware that the streets are very narrow ! Lots of places in the village to sample wines & olive oils & some very nice restaurants. Is close to lots of other quaint villages & the larger city of Colmar - all have lovely old buildings. Very close to the German border too , The history of Alsace is fascinating .A lovely part of France. We would love to return & will be recommending very highly

“Perfect accommodation in Riquewihr”

A warm welcome by Sylvie, our host, commenced our three wonderful days in Apartment Authentique. With its peace, style and comfort it offers a perfect 'home away from home' whilst exploring Riquewihr and the surrounding area.
What can we say.. It's spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, quality linens and bedding, superb bathroom and has everything one could possibly need for a short stay in an apartment. Good wifi.
So close to the centre, yet in a quiet street. A little haven!
On top of that is the friendliness and helpfulness of Sylvie and Michel, making a stay in Riquewihr a wonderful experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully renovated apartment right in the centre of Riquewihr. Our hosts Sylvia & Michel were charming & very helpful without intruding on our privacy. The apartment was very comfortable and the new bathroom complete with spa was awesome. There was an abundance of fresh towels. & toilet paper etc, (which is iften not the case in holiday rental apartments) also coffee pods were provided for the Nespresso machine There was such a lot to do in the town & around the area that I time went way too quickly.
