The Old Winery - 5 star rentals in Riquewihr
Our Old Winery property in Riquewihr
Our collection of outstanding luxury holiday homes in Riquewihr, Alsace earned a 5 star official classification by the French ministry of Tourism
4 holiday apartments are located in a big Renaissance house which was a former winery built in 1580 on the first belt of the ramparts (built 3 centuries earlier in the year 1291). The property is facing the famous Schoenenbourg Grand Cru vineyard producing some of the best wines in Alsace (in the world?); 2 other holiday apartments are located in a 17th Century nearby house. The houses are surrounding a small garden. The whole renovation project took almost 3 years of hard work. The result is a gem!

The "Fox & the Grapes" is aptly named. Having a look out of the window you will see the vineyard and the mountain and forest in the background. 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 Fox and Grapes gite is located on the first floor of our large Renaissance house. The windows of the living and bed rooms are facing the famous Schoenenbourg vineyard. The medieval timber framework is still well kept and gives an incredible charm to the apartment. And here also - as in the Little Wolf apartment next door - there is a beautiful old woodcarving drawing the date of 1580 above what became nowadays a bar. In the living room one can even see the remains of the old defence walk way of the ramparts.Learn more about the Fox and Grapes holiday gite and book online
