by | Updated on 16/02/2024 | GĂźtes (cottage rentals and refuges), Must read | 0 comments

Are you looking for a gĂźte rental in Alsace? Not always easy to find your way among the plethora of holiday rentals, I know… So after having given you my best addresses for bed and breakfasts in Alsace, here are my best addresses for gites in Alsace!

They are all charming gites that I tested myself during one night and that I really appreciated. They are vacation rentals of different capacities and in various price ranges, but they all have one thing in common: they have charm and are all run by lovely people. In short, these are good plans that should allow you to have a great stay!

I have classified these accommodations by location: some are located on the Alsace Wine Route, others rather in the mountains, others elsewhere… There’s something for every style of vacation, including for lovers of unusual accommodation! This list is constantly evolving: I’ll be updating it as I make new discoveries 🙂

GĂźtes on the Alsace Wine Route

Apartments 1834 & Spa – Rental with jacuzzi in the center of Colmar (2/4 persons)


Looking for a romantic stay in Colmar? I recommend Apartments 1834 & Spa, 11 apartments each decorated with a different theme and located in downtown Colmar. They can accommodate between 2 and 4 people. The little (big) plus? The common spa in the basement: jacuzzi, hammam and sauna are waiting for you!

Clos Bartholdi – In the heart of Colmar (2/4 persons)


Le Clos Bartholdi, with its 4 charming gĂźtes that can accommodate between 2 and 4 people, is located in an old 18th century house in the heart of Colmar. An ideal location because the house is in a quiet area while being in the historical center: you can do everything on foot! The apartments are well equipped, comfortable and nicely decorated with beautiful Alsatian furniture. A pleasant common lounge (with bar, library and large armchairs) is also available to guests.

Remparts of Riquewihr – Charming apartments (2 to 6 persons)


Les Remparts de Riquewihr are incredible charming gites located in the heart of the beautiful village of Riquewihr, nicknamed “The Pearl of the Vineyard”. Les Remparts de Riquewihr consists of 14 gĂźtes which can accommodate between 2 and 6 people and which are distributed in 3 different buildings in the center of Riquewihr. Particular care has been taken to decorate each of the apartments to make them comfortable and welcoming places: beautiful antique objects, perfect equipment, small Alsatian touches without overdoing it either… Just great!

GĂźte des Histoires – Charming in Kaysersberg-Vignoble (2 to 8 persons)


The GĂźte des Histoires is located in an old building in Kientzheim (commune of Kaysersberg-Vignoble). It has 3 apartments that can accommodate between 2 and 8 people, all patiently renovated with taste by their owner. The result is comfortable and charming gĂźtes, which immerse the guests in the warm atmosphere of Alsace without being too much. The location is also very interesting: Kientzheim is a charming wine village. It is good to stroll through its streets or go for a walk in the vineyards! Moreover, the famous Kaysersberg is only a few steps away.

GĂźtes Griotte et Cannelle – Between tradition and modernity (2/4 persons)


Griotte et Cannelle is located in Bergbieten, a small village in the north of the Alsace Wine Route (only 25 minutes from Strasbourg). 4 gĂźtes for 2 to 4 people have been tastefully fitted out in an old Alsatian farm. The decoration, mixing typical Alsatian elements and more modern objects, is very successful. No doubt, you feel good in these little cocoons, which invite you to spend pleasant vacations in Alsace!

Le Cube – Original architect’s house in Colmar (up to 14 persons)


Here is another apartment for rent in Colmar, for those who like original and modern places. Le Cube de Colmar is located in an architect-designed house that was first used as a company headquarters before being transformed into a seasonal rental. The volumes are incredible, the decoration very successful (in a style a little “jungle”) and the place remarkably well equipped, in the smallest details. Really comfortable! The Cube has 3 rooms and can accommodate up to 14 people. As a bonus, it is very well located because you can reach the heart of Colmar in just a few minutes on foot.

GĂźte Mon Escapade – Cocoon in the Vosges for nature lovers (2/4 persons)


I will not be objective with this gite… Since it’s mine! The gĂźte Mon Escapade is my weekend home, which I also rent! It is a small cottage located in Grendelbruch, in the Bruche Valley, which can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. The location gives direct access to the hiking trails and natural beauty of the Vosges, while being 20 minutes from the Wine Route.

Fermes de Pinpin – Nature, charm and swimming pool (2 to 5 persons)


Les Fermes de Pinpin are gites with swimming pool located in Labaroche, on the heights of the Kaysersberg Valley. If you are looking for a place to stay in nature with a great view of the surroundings, this is the place for you! Pinpin’s Farms
The house has 4 different styles of accommodation for 2 to 5 people: some are a bit like lofts, with impressive volumes, but there is also a charming farmhouse and a troglodyte house. In any case, the decoration and comfort are simply fabulous!

GĂźtes d’Adelspach – Spa and relaxation weekend (2 to 8 people)


The GĂźtes d’Adelspach are located in a pretty chalet in Adelspach, between Aubure and Sainte-Marie aux Mines. A little touristic area, ideal for those who wish to disconnect and enjoy the pleasures of the Vosges Massif during their stay. They comprise 5 apartments that can accommodate between 2 and 8 people, and even 14 people if you count the extra beds that can be made available. A rental that can be interesting for groups. The big plus is the 150m2 wellness and spa area, which is on a par with many hotels: sauna, counter-current swimming pool, fitness room… Finding a vacation rental with a spa is not easy, but here is a great address!

Villa Louisental – Large gĂźte for groups (up to 15 people)


The Villa Louisental is a large capacity lodge, ideal for groups: it has 7 rooms and can accommodate 15 people. This beautiful house from the beginning of the 20th century is located in the Hohwald, near the Mont Sainte-Odile and the Champ du Feu ski resort. The house is large, comfortable and very well equipped, so it is pleasant to stay there even when there are many people: you don’t feel like you are stepping on each other and you can enjoy beautiful common living spaces.

Chez Louison – The calm of a mountain farmhouse (2 to 6 persons)


The gßtes Chez Louison are located in a pretty mountain farmhouse in Fréland. We are here between vineyards and mountains, since we also have easy access to the Kaysersberg Valley and the Wine Route. The two cottages can accommodate 2 people for one and between 4 and 6
people for the second. The somewhat rustic spirit of the farmhouse has been preserved while adding a modern touch, making them comfortable apartments to stay in Alsace and recharge your batteries in the middle of nature!

Les Coccinelles – Unusual wooden gites (4/5 persons)


Les Coccinelles are two cottages located in funny wooden houses in an eco-district in Sainte Croix aux Mines. The place is perfect to be quiet, feel out of the way and enjoy the beauty of architect’s houses! The two gĂźtes can accommodate 5 and 4 people respectively and each has its own personality: huge volumes for the first, a cosy cocoon for the second; what do they have in common? Their charm, their brightness and their comfort!

Panorama Loft – Green and pool (2/4 persons)


If you are looking for an atypical gite, in a quiet place with a nice swimming pool, the Loft Panorama is for you! You will be very well received by Laurence and will be able to enjoy the serenity of the place.

Nutchel – The forest vacation village (2 to 6 persons)


If you’re looking for a place to spend a weekend or a family vacation in a beautiful natural setting and love unusual accommodation, Nutchel may be just what you’re looking for! It is a “forest village” installed in Plaine, in the Bruche Valley. About thirty wooden huts have been installed on a plot of land in the heart of the Vosges forest, and it is very successful!

GĂźtes in Strasbourg

The Villa de la Ganzau – An exceptional place between city and nature (2 persons)


The Villa de la Ganzau is a little jewel nestled in the heart of a nature reserve south of Strasbourg: you feel like you’re in the middle of nature while the city center of Strasbourg is not far away (and accessible by bus), it’s quite incredible. Two gĂźtes can accommodate two people each: an old restored hunting lodge and a pigeon house welcome visitors. It’s comfortable and lovely: ideal for a romantic weekend!

Other accommodations in Alsace

These lodgings do not belong to one of the previous categories… But that doesn’t make them any less good!

Maison d’hĂŽtes du Mont – Sleeping in an old stable (2/3 persons)


The Maison d’HĂŽtes du Mont is located in Morschwiller, west of Haguenau, in northern Alsace. The setting is restful and the gĂźtes are located in an old stable that has been nicely refurbished. A fabulous breakfast awaits you!

Hameau des Sens in Phalsbourg – GĂźtes with private Nordic baths (2 persons)


The Hameau des Sens is located in Phalsbourg. It is not in Alsace but in Lorraine but so close to the border that it doesn’t make any difference 😉 You will find at the Hameau des Sens pretty wooden chalets each with a terrace with a private Nordic bath. What a great way to spend a romantic moment in a beautiful and unusual accommodation!

Domaine des Remparts in SĂ©lestat – Bed and breakfast and gites (4/6 persons)


The Domaine des Remparts in SĂ©lestat offers mainly bed and breakfast but also has a house for 4 persons and a vacation apartment for 6 persons. A good address, especially since Selestat is a good place to stay and visit Alsace.
