My husband and I have just enjoyed 9 nights at Les Berges de l’Ombach, staying in Le Chene. This comfortable apartment is on the first floor of a purpose-built 3 storey building with off-street parking in front. The ground floor of the building has a large luxuriously warm indoor pool with sauna and small sun terrace, a games room and communal laundry facilities. The modern 2 bedroom apartment has a balcony, good size open plan kitchen/dining/living area, bathroom with shower only and a separate toilet (not really 2 bathrooms as per the property description). The large dining table seats 6, but the only other seating is a sofa that seats 2. The kitchen is well equipped. There is an air-conditioner in the apartment, but despite temperatures in the high 20's C whilst we were there, we did not need to use it as opening the windows at the front and back of the apartment was enough to cool the place. Like the rest of the property, the apartment, and everything in it, was spotlessly clean. The Schlegels, who speak German and a little English in addition to French, were quick to reply to queries when we booked and welcomed us on our arrival. They were friendly and always available if assistance was required. Surrounded by vineyards and in the foothills of the Vosges Mts, the attractive village of Soultzmatt has a small supermarket, butchery, bakery and a cashpoint, all within easy walking distance of the apartment. There are several restaurants around the village and also a mobile pizza outlet that advertises the days it will be in the village. Soultzmatt is well placed to explore the numerous attractive old villages of the Wine Route, the Route des Cretes and the Cheese Route around Munster. The town of Colmar is 25mins drive away and is a busy, interesting place to explore (Tip - follow the signs to 'Centre Ville' then 'Mairie' for car parking with easy pedestrian access to the centre of the old town). The Petit France/Grand Ile area of Strasbourg is a 1 hour drive but well worth a visit.
