Holiday rentals Colmar – the most Alsatian town in Alsace!
The beautiful Alsace region has changed hands between the Germans and the French many times over the years, resulting in an interesting cultural blend, and as as you drive out into the countryside there's a distinctly German feel. Colmar holiday rentals are a short drive away from Strasbourg and Basel airports, as well as the lovely Freiburg in Germany, and with fewer than 70,000 residents, the fairytale-esque town has retained a distinctly Alsatian atmosphere.
The town isn't very big, so you may well be able to get everywhere from your Colmar holiday rental on foot, so you can see even more. One could easily spend days wandering around Colmar's Old Town, visiting Little Venice, the fishmongers district and the tanners district, with their brightly coloured, medieval half timbered houses – don't forget your camera! The Musée d'Unterlinden, an old convent housing an art museum with everything from the Middle Ages to modern art. It's not far from holiday rentals Colmar to some great Alsatian castles, such as Haut Koenigsbourg in Orschwiller, and Hohlandsbourg in Wintzenheim.
Holiday rentals Colmar are great all year round – Colmar plays host to music, wine and folk festivals in the summer, and in the winter the town comes alive with five Christmas markets where you can try Alsatian festive specialities like Bredele and Berawecka, drink mulled wine, and do some Christmas shopping.
