Hostellerie Le Marechal is surrounded by beautiful houses, tucked together along the canal that passes through the city. Restaurants are found here and the area around the city offers wine routes that can impress any wine enthusiast.
I was in the centre of Colmar, on the edge of the canal, the so-called "Little Venice". Among the fine half-timbered houses, I found many restaurants and streets with shops. The city also has many small fine museums and is a well-known wine town in the Alsace region.
In this lovely place, I ate in both indoors and outdoors. I dined in the hotel's L'Echevin restaurant and noticed beautiful colourful paintings and wooden beams in the attic typical of Alsace. In the 70's, the restaurant became famous for their homemade piglets, as well as the fantastic location on the terrace along with the canal. If the weather is hot, you can order a seat on the hotel's outdoor terrace.
I stayed in one of the hotel's 30 rooms, all of which are different and decorated in a rustic style with antique furniture. All rooms are adapted to the building's opaque architecture.
The hotel's location in Colmar is the perfect base for those who want to experience Alsace. Do not miss a visit to the area's wine routes and especially the towns Eguisheim and Bergheim, which are charming, beautiful and fascinating.
