Comfortable place at the end of the tram line
We wanted to find a place for a week in a "real" french neighborhood, but close enough to services like trains/trams/buses and things to see and do. This apartment was great. We only speak really bad high school french, but really had no issues in town, even though we didn't meet people who spoke english. It was a wonderful adventure.
A lovely home from home
A cosy and relaxing home from home, in the lovely Strasbourg suburb of Eckbolsheim. Easy walking distance to the centre of Eckbolsheim (with a supermarket, brasseries, post office, etc. and lots of classic Alsacian architecture) and the canal. It felt very close to the edge of the city, but also easy to get into the centre of Strasbourg thanks to the nearby tram (5 mins walk) at Poteries - fast, frequent, reliable and well-priced. Poteries is a very modern area adjacent to Eckbolsheim, and didn’t have the same town/village character of the suburb.
The apartment itself was lovely, taking up the top floor of a 3-floor house. It felt very homely and welcoming (especially with the toys our daughter could play with) - ideal for a couple or a family with one or two children - and everything felt clean.
The host was friendly and welcoming, and gave us some great local recommendations to try with our daughter (like the amazing local indoor/outdoor swimming pool in Lingolsheim). Her parents live in the apartment below, and were very friendly too - even bringing us some mirabelle (in season during our stay) and other fruit!
Strasbourg has a beautiful city centre. Once you are there, it is easy to walk around, with beautiful buildings, especially along the canal/river fronts of Petite-France. We also took a tram ride out to the European Parliament. Near there, I would also recommend the Parc de l’Orangerie, a lovely park for a picnic, with a great children’s playground and a free little zoo. Strasbourg is also very bike friendly, with many dedicated cycle lanes.
Strasbourg is also surrounded by beautiful mountainous countryside - with the Vosges Mountains to the west and the Black Forest across the border in Germany. The lower slopes of both are covered in vineyards.
If we visit Strasbourg again (and I hope we will), we will definitely stay here again.
It Was à pleasure to meet you !
Hope to see you soon :)
Lovely flat, well placed, great hosts
We found a really nice flat in a small pretty village (become a suburb) with nice restaurants, and well served by buses and a tram into Strasbourg. Which itself is such a pretty town - especially the bridges and La Petite France. Lots of tourists, of course, but we found the infrastructure can handle them. We particularly enjoyed the boat trip around the river L'Ill, climbing up the cathedral tower and walking over the Rhine to Germany!
The people generally are friendly, and Sylviane and her parents (who live downstairs) are very helpful and generous hosts, with quick response to any queries, good recommendations, lots of information and - every now and then - delicious fruit from their garden.
The only things to be aware of are 2 flights of stairs to the flat, so you need some fitness, and the bicycles on the pavements outside!
Thank you Lucy and keith,

Perfect appartement voor weinig geld !
Woning ligt op een prima locatie. Slechts ca. 200 meter van het de tramhalte. Het parkeren van de auto incl. 4 tramkaartjes was in totaal 4,20 euro voor een hele dag. Dit was voor ons ongekend goedkoop. Straussburg is een prachtige stad eveneens de plaats Colam (zeker in de kerstgepriode bezoeken)
The tram terminal near the gîte is accessible on foot, or two minutes by car; the payment of the parking lot (4.10 € for one day) makes it possible to make the return trip to Strasbourg for the same price for all the occupants of the vehicle (up to 7 people,!)
