At the edge of the forest

… yet a stone throw from the city…

In the countryside

in a typical Alsatian village

A haven of peace

18 minutes away from the big city

Cosy atmosphere at winter time

After a tour of Christmas markets

A treat for all the senses

To make you feel at home

Feel at home ad relaxed

From the moment you arrive

21 la Vallée is an old, beautifully renovated U-shaped farmhouse at the edge of the quiet Alsatian village of Kuttolsheim, which lies approximately 18km away from the historical city of Strasbourg. This charming and typical half-timbered property, painted in light blue and cream colours, surrounds a paved courtyard decorated with flowers and other charming decorations. Opposite the main building where the owners live, there are three charming semi-detached cottages: „Lune“ (ideal for 1 or two people) and "Etoile" (for 3 to 4 people) and "Soleil" (for a family of 4-5 members). All three have their own private patios where guests can enjoy the fresh air.


The quiet village of Kuttolsheim lies at the outset of the famous Route des Vins which leads through the rolling vineyards and the typical Alsatian villages of the region against a backdrop of the Vosges mountains. There is plenty to do in the area. It is ideally situated to go for different walks or bike rides, to reach the historical capital of Alsace, Strasbourg, with its many tourist attractions or to visit the quaint town of Saverne with the Musée Lalique not far away. In the evening, when you return to the peace and quiet of the village, you will find a number of different restaurants in the area to satisfy most tastes and palates.Tarte flambée and choucroute are the specialities of the area. Your multilingual hosts will gladly advise you on all the above and more.

Mirabelle: from Alsace or Lorraine?
