The 'Fox & the Grapes' is aptly named. The famous Fox has always been around Riquewihr, on the paths on the edge of forests and vineyards. In the French classical literature there is a famous fable by Jean de la Fontaine called the Fox and the Grapes.

The nod to the fable is even easier than this charming apartment, romantic and comfortable to perfection, has a great location, on the first floor of our big Renaissance house on the ramparts of the year 1291, with stunning views over the famous Grand Cru vineyards of Schoenenbourg. This holiday apartment (gite) is ideal for a stay in Riquewihr, in any season, especially for those interested in wine and vine work. In fall, you will have front row seats for the harvest!

About the neighbourhood
In a beautiful national heritage house (a former winery, completely restored) built in 1580 on the medieval ramparts of Riquewihr, one of the prettiest villages in France. The property is facing the famous Schoenenbourg Grand Cru vineyard producing some of the best wine in Alsace.
Getting around
Alsace is in eastern France on the Rhine River border with Germany. The Lonely Planet guides voted Alsace first among the top ten regions to be discovered in the world. Alsace is unquestionably spectacularly beautiful. A very special combination of history, culture, scenery, and especially food and wine makes it one of the most delightful places to visit in all of Europe

Riquewihr is certainly the prettiest village in Alsace and certainly the jewel in the crown of the Alsace wine route - famous for the great Alsace wines produced here - the village looks today exactly as it did in the 16th Century. Riquewihr is a wonderful and romantic little medieval city hidden between the Vosges mountains and some of the most famous vineyards in Alsace.
