Bergheim, France - Alsace, Home of Creme de Blanc
Bergheim is one of our favorites in Alsace. A winemaking village, like so many of its neighbors, it offers flowering window boxes and half-timbered houses that seem straight out of a fairy tale. Bergheim retains a sleepy, authentic charm that some of the more touristy villages have lost. Its city walls boast 6 intact towers. Walking the circumference of the town is one of the loveliest evening strolls you can imagine.
The town features a bakery, ATM and several restaurants, cafés and shops – more than sufficient shopping options. Larger stores and shopping are less than a 5-minute drive in Ribeauvillé. After enjoying the many day trips in the region, you will love returning to Bergheim, the quietly elegant village that is your temporary hometown.
Customer comments about Creme de Blanc, Bergheim, France - Alsace
"Our house in Alsace was by far the most beautiful place we have stayed in in all our trips with Untours. The village of Bergheim was the perfect place to live. It had everything we needed but was not touristy... The house and the village were more than we expected and would highly recommend the house and the village." Roger & Sharon Dietz
"Bergheim and Creme de Blanc are both picture perfect. The house is open and airy, modern enough to be comfortable and old enough to be charming. The little courtyard at the side of the house is deserving of a spread in Better Homes & Gardens." Phyllis Wendel
"Very nicely appointed and with all conveniences, including wi-fi. Lots of room... The choice of Bergheim as a base is excellent. It is a charming, untouristy, easily walkable town. Its small population lets you interact with the same locals more than once. It is perfectly located as a hub for driving the countryside in search of adventure." Clement W. Lartigue
"We loved the apartment, the village, and our landlord Jean. Thoughtfully and beautifully appointed, Creme de Blanc was in a beautiful village within an easy drive of many sightseeing options." Deborah Thomas
"Wonderful met all expectations" Eric Benjamin
"The owner was very gracious and obviously aimed to please. He had baked a cake and his wife had made dandelion jelly. He came immediately when he knew that we had changed our plans to leave early... Bergheim is a lovely town with several eating options as well as a small store and a bakery. It is close to other towns and not far from Colmar." Jon Spargur

An Explanation of the Ratings: The first column of figures is the highest score possible in each category. The column on the far right is the score for this particular apartment in this category. For this set of ratings, we have asked every Untour staff person who has seen the apartment to rate the individual features. Many of these staff people have been in a position to hear reports (good and bad) from customers over the years, so they offer a particularly well-informed perspective. Nevertheless, customer ratings will be included in the overall ratings as soon as possible.
Please keep in mind that tastes vary. These ratings give an overall sense of how most people feel about a factor; you are in the best position to know if your tastes and requirements are likely to be in the mainstream of opinion or if you have particular needs.
