LITTLE WOLF **** - Luxury Gite for 2 - Official 4 star rating

Located on the first floor of our large Renaissance house built on the ramparts (1291) just near the Schœnenbourg vineyard, this lovely apartment for 2 people occupies the site of the medieval householder's lodging.

A few steps above the garden, the apartment faces south and west. It is extremely bright, thanks to its glazed living room, built as a winter garden on the first level of the great oriel window (large Alsatian bow window) which adorns the south facade of the building.

The small entrance lobby further enhances the privacy of the holiday home, all dressed in shades of braun colors, beige and white.

The little kitchen is very well equipped: refrigerator / freezer, microwave oven, induction cooking stove and oven, washing-dryer machine and dish washer!

On sunny days, do not hesitate to have breakfast on the small covered balcony, perfect also for a snack outdoors.

About the property

Les Remparts de Riquewihr

The location is exceptional: in the medieval ramparts, facing the vineyards. It is quiet, but only a few hundred meters from the heart of Riquewihr, one of the most beautiful villages in France ...

This is a collection of 6 new outstanding luxury holiday homes: 4 of them are located in a big Renaissance house (actually a winery built in 1580) on the first belt of the ramparts (built 3 centuries earlier in the year 1291). The property is facing the famous Schoenenbourg Grand Cru vineyard producing some of the best Alsace wine; 2 other apartments are in a 17th Century adjacent house. The houses are surrounding a small garden. The renovation works took more than 2 years. The result is a gem!

About Jean-Paul Krebs

Les Remparts de Riquewihr (Ramparts of Riquewihr) is our small family business. We are a couple of tourism professionals - Martine and Jean-Paul - having many years of experience in airline business and travels.

We think that - especially for a rather long stay (most of our guests are discovering the slow travel concept and are staying 7 nights and more) - it is not enough to sleep well during the night but it is necessary to enjoy the stay in a place which is somehow of the same level as the historical surroundings, the landscape, the mountain and the vineyards: beautiful. We put a lot of effort and care in the renovation and decoration of our vacation rental apartments because we want our holiday homes to be a memorable part of your travel experience to Alsace and France.

Jean-Paul Krebs purchased this apartment in 2012

Our holiday homes belong without any doubt to the finest places to stay in Alsace.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is exceptional: a very quiet historical place facing the most famous vineyard in the area but within short walking distance of the historical center of the village.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Little Wolf in Riquewihr. Not only is the location idyllic, but the apartment was wonderful. The decor is tasteful and adds to the overall feel of staying in this charming village. The apartment is fully equipped with top-class amenities, including a heated towel rack, a dishwasher, and even a Christmas tree for the holiday season. Communication with the owners and their local manager was easy and friendly, and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this location for anyone looking for a wonderful stay in the Alsace.

Owner's Response: Thank you Lauren for staying with us and sharing your experience. The Little Wolf apartment you have stayed in was designed within the private living area of the first owner of the house, a former medieval winery built in 1580. What is nowadays the bedroom used to be, 450 years ago, the sitting room. From there you could watch out and be aware of anybody crossing the footpath through the ramparts, coming back from the vineyards or leaving the village. When we renovated this historical house we were encouraged by the architect in charge of the National Heritage buildings to re-open the tiny window in the angle of the room that made it possible in the past to spy on the local activity ;-) It is possible to see it on the pictures. We wanted to give our guests the best amenities necessary to a modern daily life but also the historical flair that makes the stay so special and unique.

Fabulous & Wonderful on Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Martine - Jean-Paul; we would like to thank you for the wonderful time we had in Little Wolf!! We have stayed in many apartments and holiday homes over the years, but your Little Wolf was by far one of the better and most enjoyable places to stay. Your passion for renovation, but also for hospitality is truly noticable in your home away from home. You have thought of all the details to make your guests feel welcome, well taken care of, comfortable and at home. Your touch for detail to make our stay as pleasant as possible was noticable in all corners of the apartment. We have already told many of our friends and family about this wonderful place to stay. No doubt about it, when we return to the beautiful Alcase, we will stay again in one of your vacation accomodations. Thank you very much for a fabulous time. Warm greetings from Vancouver Island, Canada from Rick - Helma

Owner's Response: Dear Rick and Helma, Thank you for your very kind feedback. As you can imagine, restoring (rebuilding actually) old historical places needs a lot of efforts and has a cost. We worked hard to create places that try to be of the same level as the historical surroundings, the landscapes, the mountains and the vineyards: just beautiful. We put a lot of effort and care in the design, renovation and decoration of our vacation rental apartments because we want our holiday homes to be a memorable part of your travel experience to Alsace and France. Learning that our guests are having a pleasant stay is our best reward. Thank you again for staying with us in Riquewihr.

La sérénité et la beauté ... magnifique !

  • 5 of 5

Quels trois jours inoubliables ! Votre location "Le Petit Loup ****" est d'une rare beauté avec sa décoration de très bon goût. Son emplacement privilégié entre le cœur du village et les magnifiques vignes à portée de main, ainsi que son calme et son coté "cocooning" nous rend sereins et nous font prendre conscience de la chance d'être là, heureux et apaisés ! C'est un endroit merveilleux auquel il faut absolument "goûter", et encore mieux, le partager en famille ou avec des amis. Bravo à vous pour tout le travail accompli. Je ne manquerai pas de vous en faire une très bonne "communication publicitaire" et je ne manquerai pas de revenir en couple pour profiter de cet exceptionnel bel endroit en toute sérénité. Bonne continuation et à bientôt ...

Außergewöhnlich schöne und komfortable Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren drei Tage in der Ferienwohnung und haben diesen Kurzurlaub sehr genießen können. Es ist einfach alles vorhanden, was man braucht. Die Einrichtung ist sehr liebevoll ausgewählt und passt sich an die historischen Räumlichkeiten ideal an. Möbel, Geräte und Küchenutensilien sind hochwertig und in einem ausgezeichneten Zustand. WLAN funktioniert einwandfrei, ebenso TV, DVD Player, CD-Player etc.. Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich, erklärt bei Ankunft die technischen Details der Wohnung und gibt Tipps für den Aufenthalt. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Höchstpunktzahl!

Riquewihr, perhaps the most romantic medieval city of Alsace is hidden among the vineyards and the Vosges Mountains.

Alsace and the medieval town of Riquewihr the vineyards are definitely a great destination. Alsace offers a unique combination of history, culture and landscapes. A renowned gastronomy and delicious wine make it one of the most interesting regions to visit in Europe.

In early 2010, the famous travel guides Lonely Planet elected Alsace among the original 10 destinations in the world to visit this year! For Lonely Planet, Alsace is one of the most beautiful and the most original of France which, thanks to its wine, cuisine and other attractions and tourist facilities are worth the trip.

Riquewihr is one of the crown jewels and has still the face that was hers there nearly 500 years. More than 30 restaurants are within walking distance in the village, the traditional family restaurant in the establishment of prestigious Michelin star.

Riquewihr is also a convenient place to stay for exploring and discovering all Alsace, but also very close to Germany and even Switzerland.
