Alsace region

From Marlenheim near Strasbourg in the north to Thann in the south near Mulhouse, the 170km-long wine route encompasses charming medieval villages, castles and Renaissance houses.   With hearty cooking and typical dishes of the region including choucroute; and foie gras; to Gugelhopf yeasted bread as well as delicious wines, the Alsace region is delightful.

Combining with the historical and quintessentially pretty town of Colmar, home to the acclaimed Unterlinden Museum housed in a former monastery; as well as birthplace of Bartholdi - designer of the State of Liberty, this pocket of France offers many treasures.

We are now registering interest in a four night / five day hosted itinerary highlighting the best of the region to take place in October 2017 (Autumn wine harvest).  Please let us know if this appeals to you.
