Lucky Dragon ***** - Luxury apt 2/6 pers - 5 stars official rating

The Lucky Dragon is the second largest apartment in our new Remparts 1291 property. It is accessible via a private terrace overlooking the garden (the garden gives access to all the apartments of the property). The apartment itself is spread over 3 levels. Upon entry, one reaches a spacious kitchen with its large dining area housed in a glazed extension overlooking the garden.

At the same level is a comfortable lounge and a romantic small alcove serving as a small bedroom for 2 persons (comfortable separate beds 90 x 200 cm). A bathroom with shower and toilet complete the layout of this first level (not adjacent to bedroom, check layout).

Upstairs is a nice bedroom (king size double bed 180 x 200 cm) and a beautiful bathroom with a toilet. The bathroom offers a bath and a large separate shower, two sinks and a large closet for the storage of clothes, ideal for long stays.

If necessary, in the attick, there are 2 comfortable single beds and airconditioning.

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.

When occupied by 2 adult couples, and to avoid frustrations, let us draw your attention to the allocation of berths: - The first level, small room with 2 single beds 90x200 cm, however it is not possible to push them together. 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.

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

en famille ou entre amis en toute harmonie

  • 5 of 5

C'est notre deuxième séjour ici et c'est vraiment l'endroit idéal pour se retrouver pendant quelques jours. Cette maison très confortable à la décoration raffinée permet de vivre ensemble sans se gêner. Il est agréable de se retrouver autour de la grande table de la salle à manger ou sur la terrasse couverte lorsque le temps est clément pour prendre un verre ou y diner. L'emplacement aussi est idéal : au calme, dans un joli jardin clos et pourtant à proximité de la rue principale.. Les aménagements intérieurs ont été bien pensé. Les matériaux utilisés sont de qualité (du luxe sobre). L'accueil est chaleureux, amicalement même. Et puis, les vignes aux alentours, les dégustations de vins, les restaurants...une parenthèse heureuse. Tout est fait pour que l'on y revienne et nous y reviendrons encore.

Owner's Response: Le Dragon Porte-Bonheur est une petite maison de charme accessible directement par le jardin. L'aménagement alsacien traditionnel fait largement appel à de beaux éléments de charpente du 17e et 18e siècles mais cache aussi de nombreux équipements très modernes surtout dans les salles de bains et la cuisine. Grâce à une bonne isolation et à son chauffage central avec de gros radiateurs en fonte, ce Dragon Porte-Bonheur est très agréable même en plein hiver.

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.
