Description Page Pays-Alsace
Colmar is a wine producing capital; Mulhouse boasts the second largest number of museums after Paris. Cradled between the Vosges Mountains to the west and the Rhine River and Black Forest to the east, Alsace harbours a rich mix of French and German influences.
Once belonging to Germany, Alsace is France's smallest region and has its own melodious dialect. Known for its traditional Christmas markets, unmatched Kougelhopft, delicious local beers and wines and peaceful countryside, it is the perfect region for food and history lovers, as well as serious hikers or mountain bikers.
Connected from all sides
Regular flights to the region's two international airports, Strasbourg and Mulhouse, make Alsace an easily accessible destination. Flights are offered to 35 cities, 9 in France and 26 abroad. The rail system is extensive, connecting Alsace directly with 14 major European cities. The A4 and A36 motorways provide quality road connections to Paris and Lyon.
Unique, authentic, on the rise
Half-timbered stone houses with sharply pointed roofs adorn the city and village squares of this unique French region. It is not uncommon for façades to be also decorated with well tended pots of bright and delicate flowers. In an unspoiled corner of its own, and yet remarkably international, Alsace properties are reasonably priced, but rising.
