The White Stork*****
Apartment – 3. floor – 80m2 – 2 pers
Spectacular and romantic loft apartment with stunning views and sunny covered terrace.
The White Stork***** is the emblematic bird of Alsace. The home of the stork is perched, as is this unique and romantic apartment designed with a “cathedral ceiling” under the roof …The exceptional and atypical atmosphere of this apartment is mainly due both to its layout and the location of the old Renaissance house on top of which the holiday home of the White Stork is built.
Perched atop the old rampart of 1291 – On the 3rd floor but accessible by a wide and comfortable staircase built to modern standards – this apartment offers a unique, romantic and unusual charm. The roof structure rises to more than 5 meters above the living space which opens to the four cardinal points. A large window bay connects the sitting and dining areas to a covered terrace of 12 m2 facing south, in front of the roofs of the old medieval village of Riquewihr.
Another window of the lounge opens 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 Kaiserstuhl 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 dining area, kitchen and bedroom are overlooking 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 …
Finally, to the north, the windows of the 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.
