Du côté de chez Anne, Strasbourg
Anne? This is Anne Gerber, who transformed her beautiful family house in Colombage, surrounded by a small cottage, a park and an orchard into a guesthouse, the most beautiful among the district of Robertsau. A gem in the city! Inside, instead of yielding to any clean design, Anne chose a contemporary, opulent décor to support beams. The carpet is of three layers, the walls are sometimes gold and bathtubs, as bulging as huge ostrich eggs invite to laziness.
What room ? The bouton d’Or bedroom. For its bourgeois atmosphere, with sewed painted paper, silky fabrics and king size bath tub.
What we like: the table of the chef Anthony, renowned throughout the whole city. Very nice menu.
What we love: the terrace, the garden … a real exotic and picturesque setting close to the city center.
What makes the difference: the tea Time hour! With a snack worth one of the finest locations in the mountains. Pancakes, jams, buns, cakes, pastries … watch out, it’s serious.
What to do around? Right away, you can enjoy the still-green Alsatian countryside to visit the cellars and some nice villages or pedestrians, we walk around the whole weekend in the city amid the canals and half-timbered houses. Later, the Christmas markets with children is a must-go!
