Our romantic half-timbered house was built on the rampart of the year 1500 and is called Dove's Nest. Registered with the inventory of the French national Heritage buildings. The house recently came out of a full restoration. A real jewel appeared, the alchemy of the Alsatian tradition and modern comfort. This charming gite we are offering in Riquewihr belongs to the finest places to stay in Alsace. Our luxury gite is available for self catering holiday rentals all year round. It is possible to rent it by the week, as well as for long term or shorter stays, 3 nights minimum, capacity 4 people. Do not hesitate to book a long time in advance, especially for stays in spring, autumn and during the Christmas period (end of Nov. to New Year).
