Alsace seems to be France’s best kept secret for food and wine lovers. With the highest proportion of Michelin star restaurants per head in the country, there’s a gourmet delight on every corner and often, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. The wine has its own style and is exceptionally high in quality; even the top ‘Grand Cru’ wines offer amazing value for money when you compare them to some of the more famous wine regions of France!

Not just a feast for the stomach, Alsace is also a feast for the eyes. When you consider the incredible, architectural delights of Colmar and the picturesque Renaissance villages and castles that pepper the wine route from Marlenheim to Thann, in Alsace, you’ll have a truly memorable holiday location.
