This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • exquisite, flower-festooned villages
  • rolling vineyards and woodland trails
  • fine gastronomy and world-class wines

The beautiful borderland of Alsace, nestling between the Vosges Mountains and the mighty River Rhine, offers a delightful fusion of Franco-German culture, a wonderful variety of scenery, and an array of subtly delicious wines that are a fine match for the region’s distinctive and delicious cuisine.
I don’t think I have ever travelled through any other part of France where visitors are given such a genuinely warm welcome… and the food is out of this world.
     
The Guardian
This corner of France delivers charm by the bucketload: amid a rolling carpet of assiduously tended vines are impossibly pretty villages whose half-timbered buildings sprout colourful displays of geraniums and where remarkable storks’ nests are delicately balanced on pointed church spires. The forested slopes to the west, sprinkled with crumbling castles and criss-crossed by attractive walking trails, only add to the allure; while the celebrated gastronomy – with dishes such as ham hock and steaming choucroute as likely to be served with a foaming glass of beer as a luscious local wine – provides ample reward for a walking adventure par excellence.
