Things to do in Alsace
Alsace has some of the best attractions in France with a distinctly old world feel. Fall in love with its buildings from the middle-ages, typically white-coloured and black trusses. Wander through the romantic streets, for example, and feel yourself transported back in time. One of the most famous attractions is the Gothic style Cathedral built in sandstone, which is well worth a visit whilst staying at our holiday homes in France near Strasbourg in Alsace. We would also recommend the German Imperial Quarter and the Palais Rohan, which houses a museum of archaeology in the basement! Also check out the parks, gardens, shopping and galleries in this lovely region on your family holidays and you will not be disappointed.
Cuisine in Alsace - Gites in France
There is no better way to get to know the lovely Alsace region than to sit in one of the numerous cafes and bistros and watch the world go by whilst enjoying some fantastic regional French cuisine. One of the most noted aspects of French culture is regional gastronomy, and this plays well into the café culture in this part of France. Alsace and Lorraine are no exception to this, and has an incredibly rich palette of local specialties with both French and German influences. We recommend you try Fois Gras, for which the region is famed along with Quiche Lorraine and Coq au Riesling. Whilst renting holiday homes in France, you can also buy produce fresh from local markets, farms or shops, and being able to attempt these authentic recipes yourself!
Getting around whilst self-catering in France
Alsace and Lorraine are very well connected by metro, train, bus, trams as well as being well-suited to those who are planning to hire a car during their stay. So, while you stay in one of our holiday rentals in France, you don’t have to worry about commuting from one place to another. Many of our French holiday villas are located in such a place that is close to the major attractions of the cities and also remote countryside. If you are less interested in towns and cities, and more so in the region’s stunning peaks, beautiful valleys and dense forests, you can even take up a hiking holiday and ditch public transport altogether! However, if you are visiting somewhere like Strasbourg, you can also expect to see bicycles everywhere with special facilities for cyclists and navigating the city by bike.
French country cottages
Alsace is an ideal location for active self-catering holidays, or for those who simply enjoy the peaceful beauty of the great outdoors.

The Vosges Mountains provide fresh, alpine air, wonderfully dramatic peaks, astounding views and a plethora of snow sports in the winter. Walk at lofty heights and admire the scenery around your rented gites or cottage at any time of year. Be sure to visit the Palatinate Forest Nature Park, with its curious rock formations, thick forests and pleasant streams.
