This was our second stay at L'Ermitage, our first was only for 1 night way back in 2011. Our host, Elizabeth, couldn't do enough for us, & that visit left us with so many wonderful memories of the region of Alsace & the B&B, that we purposely set our 2017 itinerary to return to this region once again & stay at L'Ermitage, but this time for 3 nights to take more in of this beautiful location.
Elizabeth & Alain welcomed us weary travellers again with warm greetings, an exceptional evening meal & the perfect spacious room with one of the best views overlooking the mountains. Their home is always open to you & throughout the property there is always somewhere peaceful to lounge & enjoy the serenity.
This B&B has to be the best that we've ever stayed at throughout our four visits to Europe over the past 11 years.
My husband booked for 3 nights in this spectacular French mansion to celebrate our wedding anniversary, which was really a good choice. The house is situated on a hill in an Alsacean village with a very humble gate (a bit hard to find with sat nav). We stayed in the room with jacuzzi and a view overlooking the vineyard. The room was very comfortable, with find decorations. There were complimentary water, coffee and tea bags. We can use the downstairs living room freely. We also had our anniversary dinner prepared by Elizabeth, the very friendly hostess, and the food was amazing and I couldn't have imagined me doing the same myself! She is a very fine lady, and we really appreciated her calling some winery for us as we don't speak French. Highly recommended!
We just spent 5 fantastic days at Ermitage. What a grand and majestic old house! We had a beautiful and romantic renovated suite. Our host, Elisabeth, was attentive and offered great sightseeing tips. By the way, she cooks up a gourmet storm for dinner, which has to be be reserved at least a day in advance, and is not always possible if her schedule doesn't allow. We highly recommend dinner -it was absolutely the best meal we had during our whole time in Alsace. Ermitage is also pretty central to many sightseeing places in the area, and only 30 minutes to Strasbourg. This quiet location is ideal for a romantic visit to Alsace. We were over the moon about our stay.
L’Ermitage du Rebberg is a delightful hotel. The rooms are large, quiet, and beautifully decorated. The grounds are extensive with walking paths replete with bird songs, inviting swimming pool, and leisure areas inside and out. The nicest part of our stay was our hostess, Elisabeth Goetzmann , who was extremely thoughtful and anticipated our every need. She is a very warm and caring person and also an excellent chef. She prepared two outstanding dinners for us, served in a private room with a beautifully set table and wonderful wines (mostly Alsatian, but also a Cote du Rhone). Every course was superb, The breakfasts which are included in the room price are also elegantly presented and extremely generous with homemade bread and croissants, fresh fruit salad, butter, jam, ham, cheese, juice and tea or coffee. This was not a buffet, but was all placed on our table. We very sorry to have to leave after only two nights. L’Ermitage du Rebberg is in the foothills of the Vosges Mountains near the north end of the Alsatian Wiine route and an excellent choice for anyone travelling along the wine route or in the Vosges Mountains
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in late June. Elizabeth explained that a film crew had just left after several weeks of filming and she was still getting the place back in order. She had upgraded our room and emailed me a day in advance asking if we wanted dinner. The dinner the first night was outstanding, so of course, we had dinner there again the second night. The owners are incredible chefs! Our favorite was the foie gras dumplings in broth. I could've eaten that every day.
The room was very spacious and had a nice view of the pool and hills. The property is nicely maintained and has walking paths and is up in the hills, away from the main road. It's in a great location for exploring the Alsace wine route, Colmar, Strasbourg, etc. This is such a beautiful area. I wish we had more time there. The breakfasts were also nice- meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, a baguette, croissant, etc.
If you're looking for a quiet, romantic getaway, this is the place.
