Le Domaine des Remparts – Bed and breakfast and gites in Sélestat

by | Updated on 3/03/2023 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Sharing and conviviality, I believe that these are the words that best summarize the Domaine des Remparts which offers nice guest rooms in Sélestat. Run by Jacky and Marie, the Domaine des Remparts is located in an old rehabilitated Alsatian building.

Jacky and Marie do a wonderful job with their bed and breakfast and their gites by offering accommodation in a medium price range and accessible to all (couples, families, groups, people with motor or mental disabilities…). The welcome is also there since we are dealing with two passionate people of their region, which is always very pleasant. Try to launch Jacky on Alsace and Selestat and you will see that I am not exaggerating! 😉

My room at the Domaine des Remparts

I slept in the Suite, a huge 40m2 room located in the attic and with a sitting area. It’s actually so big that it lacks a bit of furniture for my taste, but the whole thing is elegant and comfortable. The bathroom, on the other hand, is not huge but quite reasonable in size, with a nice shower.

I was also able to visit two other rooms, all equally nicely decorated and of good size. There is no way you will run out of space at Domaine des Remparts!

Table d’hôtes du Domaine des Remparts

The table d’hôtes of the Domaine des remparts is a real moment of conviviality. We dine all together in the dining room on a large table: a moment of exchange that I always appreciate in the guest rooms. Jacky is at the service and punctuates the dinner with anecdotes about Alsace while Marie is in the kitchen and prepares Alsatian specialties and good home-made cakes. Special mention for its baeckeoffe, one of the best I have tasted in Alsace! Yes, just that! The wines offered, from Ruhlmann in Dambach la Ville, are also excellent. In the end, the value for money of the meal is really good, I recommend it!

Breakfast

Breakfast is served in the form of a very complete buffet, with both savory and sweet dishes. On the menu: cheese, cold cuts, various breads, homemade jams (excellent!), homemade cakes, fruit, fruit juice and hot drinks… There is plenty to choose from and I enjoyed it!

Location

The Domaine des Remparts is located in Sélestat, right on the edge of the city center. This location is very convenient because Selestat is a beautiful city and because it is an ideal base for visiting Alsace, halfway between Strasbourg and Colmar and close to the Wine Route. The Domaine des Remparts can therefore suit you whether you come by train (the station is a 10-minute walk away) or by car.

Sélestat is an Alsatian city often quite unknown, but worth a visit (I discovered it recently too, I must admit!). At Christmas time, there are many exhibitions and animations on the theme of the Christmas tree. Why this theme? Because Sélestat would be the city having introduced the tradition of the decorated Christmas tree… The oldest known reference to the Christmas tree in the world can be found in its municipal archives and dates back to 1521!

I liked

  • Nice building
  • Comfortable rooms
  • Very good table d’hôtes and breakfast
  • Friendly welcome

I liked less

  • It is not a real guest house in the sense that you don’t stay with the owners: there are the bedrooms and a breakfast/dinner room which are separated from Jacky and Marie’s house.
