  • Tailor-made authentic hotel holidays to Alsace

    Luxury holidays to the Alsace region

    With its combination of stunning natural scenery in the wooded hills and valleys of the Vosges mountains, with ruins of mediaeval fortresses and fortified villages, with gently sloping vineyards facing the Rhine valley and with fairytale like towns of pretty half timbered houses and cobbled streets, Alsace is a region well worth visiting. 

    Standing at the crossroads of Europe, Alsace encapsulates an unmistakeably European flavour where historic and cultural influences of its French and German neighbours have created a unique atmosphere with an independent character and great traditions.

    Our luxury hotels in Alsace enable you to visit both the northern Vosges and the cultivated quaintness of the Alsatian Wine Road during your holiday in the region.

    It is possible to incorporate a stay in the Alsace region into a self-drive touring holiday of France, perhaps exploring the Northern Vineyards

    Travel arrangements

    Self-drive: Strasbourg can be reached by car along the motorway from Calais in about 6 hours. However, for a more leisurely journey, we recommend an overnight stop at the Tour du Roy in Picardy or in the Champagne region.
