Bed and Breakfast La Vieille Vigne in Gundolsheim

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


The bed and breakfast La Vieille Vigne is located in Gundolsheim, between Colmar and Mulhouse. It is located in a house dating from the 1830’s (and even 1713 for the foundations!), completely renovated by its friendly owner Xavier. Three years of work were necessary before the guest house could be opened. The result is there, the place is simply magnificent! Period elements such as the impressive wooden staircase have been preserved, other decorative objects have been found and refurbished, and others are modern such as the huge aquarium in the living room. The whole gives the place a warm and charming atmosphere: you feel good from the moment you step into the house. A real favorite!

The large open kitchen allows you to chat with Xavier who is busy preparing dinner or breakfast. You can also relax with a book on the sofa in the living room or chat with the other guests. In the summer, it is also possible to enjoy the garden (which is enclosed, which is convenient with children!). Finally, the Vieille Vigne is equipped with a freely accessible wooden sauna.

My room, the Zinnkoepflé

The guest house La Vieille Vigne has two rooms and one suite, the latter being equipped with a whirlpool bathtub. I stayed in the Zinnkoepflé room (which is the name of a local Grand Cru). The room is spacious (25m2), has exposed beams that give it a lot of character and is very nicely decorated. A real little cocoon! The bed is an extremely comfortable Queen Size, ideal to be in shape the next day and be ready to visit Alsace!

The bathroom is also large, with a double sink, a huge walk-in shower and a separate toilet. A little extra that I appreciate: cotton pads and tissues are provided in addition to the traditional shower gels and shampoos.

Table d’hôtes de la Vieille Vigne

La Vieille Vigne offers a table d’hôtes for dinner, whose menu changes every month. The level of the meal is high, you really feel like in a good restaurant! I enjoyed it. The only downside is that I would have appreciated a slightly larger dish. The (very good) cheese that followed disappeared entirely because everyone was still a little hungry I think. The price varies from 30 to 40€ depending on the ingredients of the menu and includes an aperitif (drink and appetizers), a starter, a main course, cheese, dessert and bottled water. The one I tried cost 39€ (there were morels in the dish, which inevitably increases the bill).

As for wines, Xavier is a connoisseur and offers a selection of very good Alsatian wines. Don’t hesitate to ask him for advice or to choose the proposed wine and food pairing formula (between 16 and 17€ for three glasses of wine).

Breakfast in the guest house

The breakfast of the Vieille Vigne is very qualitative: home-made jams, Kusmi tea, honey of the village, delicatessen, cheese, bread… Everything is delicious, we enjoy ourselves! I also particularly liked the homemade kouglof, which is a change from the usual pastries and is much more local. My only regret is that I would have preferred squeezed orange juice to the one served.


The village of Gundolsheim is well located between Colmar and Mulhouse. A convenient location to visit Alsace! We are not on the Route des Vins but it is very close (a few minutes by car).
