Welcome to Chez l'Alsacien

4 étoiles

Discover our cosy 4-star accommodation in Barr, located in the heart of Alsace’s wine capital, between Obernai and Sélestat. The 3-room flat “Chez l’Alsacien” (67 m²) can accommodate up to 5 people (plus a baby) and has been completely renovated, preserving the original materials. There are two bedrooms, a fitted kitchen, a cosy living area, a balcony and a bathroom with walk-in shower. The house is ideally located for exploring the Central Alsace region, on the Alsace Wine Route and at the foot of Mont Saint Odile, between the Vosges and the Black Forest, between vineyards and half-timbered houses.

On a cobbled street in the historic centre of Barr, step through the porch and climb to the second floor of a half-timbered Alsatian building for an unforgettable experience.

Barr is a typically Alsatian town full of character where life is good, with its charming boutiques, gourmet restaurants, craftsmen and winegrowers. It’s the ideal starting point for a host of escapades, both in town and in the countryside.

Nothing has been left to chance to offer you the best comfort in the most authentic surroundings, for a gentle, peaceful stay in the Alsatian style.

A cosy living room

Once you’ve pushed open the beautiful wooden door, you’ll immediately be drawn into the atmosphere by the scent and creaks of the old wood on the fully restored period fir floor and the polished antique furniture. You’ll discover a cosy living room where all the half-timbering has been preserved, with furniture and decor lovingly sourced by Marie and Thomas. There are two distinct areas: a dining area where you can enjoy a meal together in the Alsatian ‘Stammtisch’ style, and a ‘relaxing’ living room where you’ll find a top-of-the-range connected TV with Netflix, a DVD player, a radio and plenty of board games, books, magazines and DVDs to enjoy with family and friends.

Comfortable rooms

Because a suitcase is always too small, don’t bother with the laundry!
All beds are made up on arrival.

The bedding and linen have been carefully selected. Once again, Thomas and Marie have focused on quality and local produce, opting for the best manufacturers in Alsace and the Vosges.For the bedding, we chose top-of-the-range pocketed micro-sprung mattresses (winter side/summer side in Oeko-Tex®-certified soya, 5 comfort zones) from DIROY in Haut-Rhin, the only manufacturer in Alsace for 75 years.

The beds are fitted with linen from LINVOSGES and GARNIER-THIEBAUT, leading manufacturers combining expertise and quality of fine linen located in the Vosges.

Finally, the bedspreads and household linen have been made to measure from traditional Alsatian fabrics and patterns in cotton and linen, Kelsch, hand-woven by the KELSCH D’ALSACE factory in SEEBACH (Bas-Rhin).

Each bed has individual duvets and two pillows for maximum comfort.

Each bedroom has storage cupboards and is equipped with USB sockets.

On request:

If you wish, we can separate the double bed in bedroom 2 into two single beds measuring 80 x 200 cm.

We can also provide a cot for your baby.

An intimate setting

The bathroom has a large walk-in shower and an old oak sideboard that has been converted into a double washbasin unit.

Marie and Thomas have also thought of everything for your comfort with :

– one terry towel and one bath sheet per person

– a bath mat

– a heated towel rail

–  a hairdryer

–  soap

–  shower gel and shampoo

–  toilet paper

Here too, all the products are eco-friendly and/or local, and come in refillable containers.

The little extra: an authentic balcony

You can get some fresh air and enjoy a few rays of sunshine on the 8m² covered, long balcony with a small bistro table and chairs. Ideal for a romantic breakfast or coffee, or just to enjoy a moment of relaxation. And there’s even a lovely bar with stools where you can enjoy an aperitif outside.
