Great location, just outside the old town over looking the river. Compact third floor apartment with everything you need. We were made to feel particularly welcome with the local gingerbread, beers and fruit left for us - a really nice touch. Great place for enjoying all that Strasbourg has to offer and close to the railway station if you want to explore further afield.
Marie-Pierre's apartment was absolutely lovely. In one word-superb!
The apartment was even better than the photos depicted. It was spacious, very well appointed, tastefully decorated, well equipped,and comfortable.
The position was excellent-so close to the markets, bars, and restaurants but also very quiet. Several steps outside the main doors and we were savouring the delights of 'La Capitale de Noel". Strasbourg really shines at this time of year and we felt very much part of the lively Alsacien atmosphere. The city lights and large Christmas Tree in the Place de Kleber were breathtaking and the Cathedral's gothic presence dominated the square. Lit up in the evening ,it was a sight to behold.
As well as its natural beauty, Strasbourg has a fascinating history and we were given a history lesson as we cruised the canals, an activity well worth doing.
The finest compliment, however, must go to Marie-Pierre herself. Marie-Pierre met us from the tram which was very close to the apartment and only a 10 minute trip from the central station. She welcomed us warmly and when she introduced us to her apartment, she did this with a home-baked festive cake and a packet of biscuits for each person. What a delightful welcome! Marie-Pierre had thought of everything a visitor might need for a pleasant stay in her apartment and Strasbourg. There was real coffee,a selection of teas, milk, cream, cereal, bread and brioche. A bottle of water was placed beside each of our beds and the bathroom was equipped with all our toiletry needs. She had presented the apartment in an immaculate manner-exceptionally clean,tidy, and warm.
Our only mistake was not booking a longer stay which we will rectify next time and there will be a next time!
If you want authentic French atmosphere and want to experience true French hospitality then Marie-Pierre's abode is perfect. Now I have presented such a positive review that my only worry will be can I get a booking next Christmas.
Merci beaucoup, Marie-Pierre, and best wishes for 2018.
