The “Voie verte” from Rosheim to Saint-Nabor – Portes Bonheur, le Chemin des Carrières

The “voie verte” (walking and cycling path) from Rosheim to Saint-Nabor is a newcomer among cycling paths in Alsace. It is a cycling path connecting Rosheim to Saint-Nabor, following the outline of the old railway that hasn’t been used since 2002. It has been named “Portes Bonheur, le Chemin des Carrières” in tribute to the past. The railway line had indeed been initially installed at the beginning of the 20th century, in order to carry away the stones extracted from the quarries of Saint-Nabor towards the Plain of Alsace. It’s always interesting to see constructions such as railways, which have greatly shaped the landscapes,...

Gîte Les Hydrangéas in Ribeauvillé – a Duplex with terrace in the heart of the pedestrian center

The gîte Les Hydrangéas de Ribeauvillé is a large duplex gîte of 140m2, which can accommodate 8 to 10 people. This is not very common, especially as it is located right in the heart of the historical centre of Ribeauvillé, in the main street.  The owner, Marie, immediately fell in love for this flat under the rafters, in a small and old building, which, as luck would have it, also has a large terrace. However, it required major renovation works and Marie undertook them… It was a mammoth task, and we can now admire the result: a splendid flat with the charm of the old...

Unusual Gîtes Les Coccinelles – The quirky wooden houses in Sainte-Croix aux Mines

Les Coccinelles are unusual gîtes in Alsace located in Sainte-Croix aux Mines, in the Valley of Sainte-Marie aux Mines. The gîtes Les Coccinelles are located in quirky wooden houses, whose architecture is quite surprising at first sight. These houses have indeed been built during the development of a wild land of the town. An architecture competition was organized and won by the firm G. Studio. They designed a set of houses, that later received the Ecodistrict certification label. Quite luckily, two houses have now been turned into gîtes: a large 80m2 house, which can host 5 people, and a smaller  40m2 house, built later...
