Property Description

Bordered by forests, this former farm is a peaceful retreat with a true spirit of Alsace, nestling in a small village near the German border. The interior is furnished with a mix of modern and rustic features, and retains the original beams in the spacious and comfortable living room. The spacious garden is ideal for al-fresco dining. The courtyard is shared with the owner who lives next door and is happy to prepare home-cooked meals by arrangement. Not far away are the Cleebourg Vineyards, offering a large choice of restaurants. The spa town of Baden-Baden in Germany is just over the border with low cost flights to the UK, and to the south is the bustling town of Strasbourg with its magnificent cathedral, Petite France district and many museums.

Living/dining room with wood-burning stove. Well-equipped kitchen. Double bedroom. Bathroom/WC with shower cubicle. Open-sided stairs to first floor: Large single bedroom

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Photos dont do it full justice! June 2012.
  2. Lovely artistic property with a wonderful garden with stream. Gilla was a super lady - friendly and generous. Charming village with storks nesting a mile away. Wissembourg easy to get to and delightful, especially as we were there for the pentecost celebrations with bands, dancing, national costume and markets of all sorts. May 2012.
  3. Lovely area, lovely 200 year old cottage. Make sure you try the owners home cooked meal and home made wine. May 2012.
  4. Maison Gilla is a typical Alsatian half-timbered house in a beautiful village. There are no shops/restaurants in the village but they are near at hand. The landlady - the eponymous Gilla - could not have been more helpful. Aug 2011.
  5. A very comfortable house. Aug 2011.
  6. A lovely, comfortable house in a very pretty village. The owner was particularly helpful, friendly and welcoming. She cooked us a delicious meal one evening - an opportunity well worth taking up. There are many attractive vilages and towns to explore in the area. May 2011.
  7. Very comfortable and ideally situated for visits to Baden Baden and the train to Strasbourg. Lots of country walks locally and a lovely pub restaurant in the next village of Drachenbronn ten minutes walk away. June 2011.
  8. The property is set in a charming village with no facilities but who needs them? This is the ideal place to get away from it all. The owner is hospitable and friendly without being obtrusive. May 2011.
  9. It was beautifully presented and had lots of room to relax in. In an excellent location to explore the Alsace region. Sept 2010.
  10. Delightful cottage, set in a beautiful village. The owner was particularly helpful and friendly. Aug 2010.
  11. Characterful, olde worlde appeal. Very traditional converted farmhouse, typical of the area. June 2010.
  12. Maison Gilla is a beautifully kept cottage in a lovely private setting. The owner is helpful and considerate and goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. The bathroom is fabulous with a spa bath and underfloor heating. There was a bottle of wine to welcome us and the owner is an amazing cook we had a 5 course meal in the open air dining area which was wonderful our only regret was not booking a fortnight but we will next time!! We would like to thank Gilla for being a wonderful hostess and sharing her wonderful home. It was an exceptional holiday. Aug 2009.
  13. Lovely place, enjoyed our break. July 2009.
  14. Beautiful traditional Alsatian village. Warm welcome from the owner. May 2009.
  15. Accommodation was excellent, unique, comfotable - a real homely feel to it. Owner was helpful - cooked us a delicious meal one evening. Aug 2008.
  16. Very hospitable and friendly owner. Aug 2008.
  17. Idyllic setting, property full of character. It was like staying in someone’s home. Special note should be taken of the fact that the owner goes out of her way to be helpful and welcoming without being intrusive. We had a lovely evening when she cooked us a meal (she offers this as part of the service and you pay her) which was fabulous. She is an excellent chef. This holiday would suit people who enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside and are prepared to drive for an hour or so to get to big cities etc. Good for walks, wine and fab food - German and French. We loved it all. Aug 2007.
