Beblenheim, France - Alsace, Home of Sonnenglanz
Beblenheim, with its flower-bedecked, half-timbered houses, is a tranquil village of 953 inhabitants, known throughout the world for the quality of its wines. Those who have only drunk its delicious wine, though, may not know that Beblenheim is exceptionally well located for exploring the heart of Alsace.
Situated directly on the famous Route des Vins, Beblenheim is close to the walled town of Riquewihr, historic Ribeauvillé, the gracious city of Colmar, countless ancient walled villages and imposing castles. For more relaxing days, close-to-home, easy walks through storied vineyards beckon. Vineyard trails actually connect Beblenheim with most neighboring villages, including Riquewihr and Zellenberg. Beblenheim dates from the tenth century, but the oldest reminder of its past is a fifteenth-century Gothic fountain on the main street.
In spite of its size, Beblenheim has 2 restaurants, a small convenience store, a post office and several wineries. The Hartweg winery is considered one of the best in Alsace and is on one of the main streets in town. Most wineries offer tastings on request. There are ATMs and large supermarkets in nearby Ribeauvillé.

"The apartment is very will arranged, rooms are large and the owners (who are on site) are extremely nice. The views are outstanding and the location is very good. The only drawback is they need one English speaking TV channel." George Jones
"Very good apartment setting and immediate surroundings." Donald Liles
