Saint Hippolyte, France - Alsace, Home of La Cour 1
At the foot of the Vosges Mountains and castle Haut-Koenigsbourg lies this sleepy old village the core of which is 3 parallel streets cut by side streets and alleys between half-timbered houses. The northern most and perhaps quietest of our wine route villages, St. Hippolyte is still completely surrounded by its wall. Inside the wall, you will be charmed by the double square of its town hall and 14th century gothic church and flower decked fountain dating from 1555. This is the 2nd place where Alsatian red wine originates---Rouge de Saint Hippolyte (a pinot noir) and an excellent place to sample it. A nice break from the well worn tourist path would be a meal at the typically Alsatian restaurant Hupsa Pfannala. It’s building has been in use since 1506. There is a wonderful bakery on the square and other restaurants in town.
Customer comments about La Cour 1, Saint Hippolyte, France - Alsace
" ..like previous Untour accommodations, we were not disappointed. All the necessities were there. We did not need the handicapped accessible shower, but enjoyed its luxurious large size and instant hot water... We loved our patio table where we could enjoy a meal or relax with a glass of wine. St. Hippolyte was a good location--just a short drive to Selestat where we caught the train to Strasbourg and found a supermarket. It was just a short drive to the other villages on the wine route. Koenisgbourg Castle was perched just above our village." Ann Mazeau
"The apartment was spotless, spacious for two, secure parking, very well equipped for meal preparation, private, yet with a small sheltered outdoor deck making it easy to chat with neighbors around the courtyard. Access to washing machine was a bonus. Landlady Isabelle was cheerful and helpful... Bed was very comfortable... The town and apartment were both well-selected. The apartment is in a quiet, charming courtyard on a quiet street, yet with easy access to town shops and touring further afield." David Beattie
"The apartment was pleasant as was our landlady." Janet Kieffer

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.
