The Auberge Saint-Laurent in Sierentz, in the south of Alsace, is well known to Alsatians for its starred restaurant. What I didn’t know was that the establishment also had a hotel and a winstub (Alsatian brasserie). You can therefore enjoy the place without necessarily opting for the starred table. TheAuberge Saint-Laurent hotel is really a place I fell in love with. I discovered it when I spent 3 days cycling in the south of Alsace (see the story on my other blog): what a pleasure to arrive in such a place after a day of cycling! It is a real little haven of peace full of charm where it is good to rest.
Hotel of the Auberge Saint-Laurent
The Auberge Saint-Laurent is a family establishment: the Arbeit family has been in charge for several generations. The atmosphere of the place is also familial: we are far from the stuffy atmosphere that gastronomic establishments can sometimes have. Here, you are warmly welcomed with a big smile and conviviality. I really enjoyed it!
With its different buildings, the hostel forms a charming ensemble in the center of which stands the garden and its swimming pool. What a pleasure to settle down there, by the pool or in the shade of a tree, after a good day… It is an ideal setting for a romantic weekend and/or, as I said, to make a stopover during a cycling tour in Alsace!
The hotel’s rooms are all decorated with different themes and named after one of the family’s forefathers. I’ve had the chance to see several and each one has a real personality, it’s very nice.
Star restaurant or Winstub?
On the side of the restoration, we have the choice between the starred restaurant (that I did not test yet but that I foresee one of these days for a romantic evening!) and the winstub A côté. The winstub is ideal for a more reasonable budget: everything is excellent and the setting is also very pleasant, both inside and outside on the terrace under the trees. On the menu, a fine cuisine mixing traditional and more contemporary elements, which is good for you. We don’t always feel like eating Alsatian food 😉
