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 cottage in 2012

Why Jean-Paul Krebs chose Riquewihr

After 6 years of efforts rebuilding this old medieval property we are proud to announce that our collection of new outstanding luxury holiday homes in Riquewihr, Alsace just earned a 4 and 5 stars official classification by the French ministry of Tourism.

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

What makes this cottage 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.

Bathroom with large shower and toilet but not Ensuite. - The second level, large bedroom with king size bed. Large bathroom. For a fair distribution of the costs of living, we suggest in this case 40% of the load for the occupants of the small downstairs bedroom and 60% for the occupants of the large room. If a benefit equal to each sleeping couples is essential, we recommend renting one of our other apartments: the ALSATIAN HART or the DOVE's NEST.

One of the most beautiful places

  • 5 of 5

If you haven’t been to Riquewihr during Christmas time with its Christmas market in the medieval streets of this old Alsacian town and you happen to love old places with great food and beverages you should definitely consider a stay. During festive season Riquewihr also features Christmas decorations, mostly fairy lights, giving the town a unique atmosphere.

However, it’s not just Riquewihr itself. The Remparts de Riquewihr offer apartments which are just like you see them on the photos: nice, Alsacian style, with all the comforts of modern kitchens and baths, plus an excellent service fluent in French, German and English.

Especially the Lucky Dragon: If you stay with six people the main room may be a bit crowded on Heiligabend or Christmas Day (depending on your Father Christmas appearance ;-) ) but the house is a bit set back from the street (quiet), it has a terrasse for the morning coffee (yes, also when it’s freezing cold) and cozy sleeping rooms. All in all, I enjoyed staying there very much and I can definitely recommend it.

Faultless, Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The Little Dragon is located in the centre of the village and gave us privacy but yet only a short 30 second walk to the main street.

It is Immaculately maintained inside and out with private secured parking if you need it. It was just as advertised in the pictures. The photos on the site say it all really. The place was very clean, well decorated, very well maintained in keeping with the character of the place and village, very well equipped, completely furnished with everything you need for your stay. Internet worked great as did the heating and hot water.

Valerie, the owners manager who met us at the property was great at explaining all that the little dragon had to offer, also all the great places to visit in the Village and its surroundings.

We were centrally located to be able to explore the region to the north and south and still get back to enjoy the property and Riquewihr every night.

A Must Place to eat is at Au Trotthus and Asian Tapas.

I have being going to Riquewihr with my wife several times a year for the last 6 years would definitely recommend this place for a relaxing holiday in this beautiful Village. In fact i have stayed in several of the owners, Jean-Paul K appartments and can’t fault any of them. All of them individually styled and furnished to a very high standard giving you a feeling of home away from home.

He has different apartments which will suit anyones requirements, needs and budgets and you should definitely check out his site i-love-riquewihr dot com before you make you choice.

Thank you again for making our Stay so great.

Dragon porte-bonheur / Lucky Dragon

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup aprécié notre séjour dans cet appartment, rénové avec beacoup d'attention et de goût. Valérie nous a accueillis avec une grande gentillesse et disponibilité! Tout était parfait, les peignoirs et les paniers avec chaussons et champoings nous attendaient. Nous conseillons cet appartement à une famille avec adolescents car les 2 chambres à 2 lits sont petites dont l'une avec un escalier assez raide. Nous avons pu visiter les villes alentour et avons pu skier au Lac Blanc qui se situe à 40mn de l'appartement. Nous reviendrons très vite!

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartement! It is a little cottage renovated with attention, taste and the best materials. Valérie was very attentive to our well-being. Everything was perfect, the bathrobes and slippers were waiting for us. We recommend this apartement to a family with teenagers because the 2 other bedrooms are small. We visited the cities all around and could ski at the Lac Blanc which is 40mn away from the apartment. We will come back very soon!

Besser geht nicht....

  • 5 of 5

Im Oktober 2016 waren wir zum wiederholten Male Gäste in Riquewihr. Auch die Ferienwohnung "Der Glückliche Drache" lässt keine Wünsche offen.

Durch die Art und Anlage des Hauses hat man das Gefühl, nicht in einer Wohnung, sondern in einem Ferienhaus Quartier zu beziehen.

Die reizende und geschmackvolle Einrichtung, die dem Stil der Erbauungszeit entspricht, versprüht einen Charme, dem man sich nicht entziehen kann. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt von der ersten Minuten an genossen. Die Wohnung hat das "Wohlfühlfeeling", das wir uns für unseren Urlaub vorstellen.

Daher kommen wir wie immer gern wieder.

Marita, Peter und Carla aus Berlin

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.
