The Sentinel*****

Duplex flat – 1. floor – 50m2 – 2 pers
Romantic duplex apartment. Alsatian antiques with modern comfort.
Lounge, kitchen and Alsatian dining area + 1 bedroom with king size bed and bath en suite

This romantic flat spreads over two floors (duplex) in a medieval house listed as a national heritage building (Monument Historique). It is embedded in the medieval rampart (defence wall built 1500) of Riquewihr, only some yards away of the famous fortified gates of the Obertor and the Dolder. 

Some steep steps (the original historical stairway) take you up from the street to the first floor, at the same level as the former covered defence walk way of the ramparts, where the medieval soldiers used to watch out for enemies, invaders or thiefs (therefore the name Sentinel)! 

A romantic and elegant living space spreads over the first floor: spacious living room and kitchen.

One level higher, within a beautiful carpenter work of the XVIIth Century, there is the bedroom with a comfortable king size bed and bathroom en suite.

On the mountainside, the medieval city wall is the western wall of the house. On the street side, it is an Alsatian traditional half-timber framed house. Decorated with great care and especially equipped for 1 couple looking for holiday accommodation on the Alsace wine route, at the foot of the Vosges and a few minutes of Colmar only. 

The restoration works largely made use of the traditional techniques with organic and healthy materials (untreated wood, natural paintings with lime wash, no chemicals, etc). Authentic polychrome pieces of furniture and fabrics in Alsatian kelsch contribute to make this small house a real jewel. The Sentinel flat combines charm and comfort and will be able to satisfy – Summer as Winter – those which appreciate and privilege before all the refined and authentic places… 

The fully equipped kitchen makes it possible to be perfectly autonomous. But do not forget that the many ones and excellent restaurants of the village (some of them being listed in the Michelin Red Guide) – with excellent value for money – are within walking distance.
