“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed 17 April 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We were two couples visiting the Christmas markets in the Alsace. All four of us were perfectly pleased with the apartment....beautiful, very functional, and even decorated for Christmas. It is in the very center of Riquewihr, central to everything in the old town. Jean Paul and Valerie were exceptional hosts. Jean Paul even took us on a full day tour of several villages including the history of the Christmas tree in Selestat and Christmas market in Obernai. We were treated to a very nice welcome breakfast along with other guests in his office. This is the second time we have rented from Jean Paul in the Alsace and when we return we will definitely rent from him again. We have already booked an apartment with him on the French Riveria in 2019.

“Faultless, Home away from Home”

The Dove Nest is located in the centre of the village and gave us privacy but yet only a short 30 second walk to the main street.
It is Immaculately maintained inside and out with private secured parking if you need it. It was just as advertised in the pictures. The photos on the site say it all really. The place was very clean, well decorated, very well maintained in keeping with the character of the place and village, very well equipped, completely furnished with everything you need for your stay. Internet worked great as did the heating and hot water.
Valerie, the owners manager who met us at the property was great at explaining all that the Doves Nest had to offer, also all the great places to visit in the Village and its surroundings.
We were centrally located to be able to explore the region to the north and south and still get back to enjoy the property and Riquewihr every night.
A Must Place to eat is at Au Trotthus and Asian Tapas.
I have being going to Riquewihr with my wife several times a year for the last 6 years would definitely recommend this place for a relaxing holiday in this beautiful Village. In fact i have stayed in several of the owners, Jean-Paul K appartments and can’t fault any of them. All of them individually styled and furnished to a very high standard giving you a feeling of home away from home.
He has different apartments which will suit anyones requirements, needs and budgets and you should definitely check out his site i-love-riquewihr dot com before you make you choice.
Thank you again for making our Stay so great.

We spent a week in this wonderfully renovated apartment located at the top of the walled city of Riquewihr. Riquewihr is a gorgeous town. I highly recommend visiting and the surrounding area is beautiful as well. The apartment is well managed by the attentive and sweet Valerie. The location is perfect, close to parking but still within the ancient walls. The interior is perfectly appointed with 2 beautiful bedrooms - one on the ground floor which was perfect for my sister and her heavy suitcase and one on the third floor which was large and spacious enough for my teenage daughter and myself to share. Each bedroom had it's own modern bathroom with large corner tubs and the coolest faucet/shower contraption I have seen. AND there were wonderful bathrobes provided as well which was a nice surprise! The kitchen was fully stocked with pots and pans and even some leftover spices, rice and pasta. It has a nice cone filter coffee maker and there was another coffee maker but we unfortunately couldn't figure out how to use it. The only two minor complaints we would have would be that the Internet only worked in the uncomfortable dining room and it was sporadic even then and that the tv in the living room was busted (granted we were three women and were clueless how to get it to work. We couldn't even figure out how to turn the power off of it. The screen stayed lit the whole 7 days which drove my conservationist self crazy :). All in all a truly beautiful, spacious and comfy place to say.

Thank you for sharing your experience. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the apartment and the area. I would like to take this opportunity to point out some technical aspects about the Dove's Nest house. The second coffee machine is a Nespresso machine making a wonderful expresso. It needs special capsules of coffee to work. It is possible to order them from us when booking or from any Nespresso shop. The large TV in the living room is coupled with a DVD, CD and FM system. It is also offering satellite channels as well as terrestrial digital TV. I have to admit that this complex equipment might sometimes be difficult to handle. Apart from the technical manuals available in several languages, our house manager is always happy to help when necessary. She can be reached with the telephone available in the living room which is also offering a free call service anywhere in the world. On the same table there is a computer with an internet adsl connection. The cable can be connected to any computer and provides then a very quick connection without having to use the wifi. But of course, if the internet service provider fails, all our equipment can only wait until the connection returns :-)

“Dove's Nest At Christmas”
Reviewed 2 June 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We spent 4 nights in Dove's Nest around Christmas with our 2 teenagers who loved having 3 floors and the quaintness of an ancient house restored for modern comforts. Unfortunately they scored the lovely loft bedroom with the king bed, while we poor parents were relegated to the ground floor queen room - but it was the trade off for them sharing a bed. And they loved it. Given it was Christmas week, and Riquewhihr is one of the big attractions in the Alsace at this time of the year, the village was crowded from morning to night and parking ( metered) at a premium. But staying in the village and going out each day, meant we had to it ourselves in the eary mornings and late evenings. The house is well managed, with a professional booking arrangement and local agent Valerie was accommodating . A Christmas tree in the living room (with a peat burning fire box) was a very thoughful touch, as were cocktails one evening organised by the owners for their guests staying in their various properties. Very nice hosts and a charming and interesting place to stay in a lovely region.

Liked best: Location in the Riquewihr wall so an historic house but very prettily restored
Liked least: That the kids got the loft bedroom, and the second bedroom heater was possibly faulty and not able to be turned off at night but presumably since fixed.
