Built in 1513 into the ancient remparts of this medieval town, the Orange Blossom has been recently renovated in a Italo-Alsatian décor to correspond with the tastes of your hosts, Christophe & Laura Ramaschi-Trautmann, and its bright sunny windows look across the rooftops, up into the vineyards and to the mountains in the distance.

Ribeauville, France - Alsace, Home of Orange Blossom
Known for its Riesling wine, Ribeauvillé, one of largest towns in the region, boasts a bustling, beautiful Old Town. Its flower-abundant main street, with picturesque half-timbered houses and magnificent historic façades, exudes Old World charm. In the summer, the streets are usually lively with visitors. Many of the restaurants and shops you find are tailored for tourists, but the authentic architecture and city walls have been carefully preserved. In between the picture-postcard shops and cafés, you will find architectural wonders and exquisite squares. If it is modern conveniences you desire, visit the larger shops on the outskirts of town. For quintessential European village charm, however, Ribeauvillé is the place to be.
