Guests will be enchanted by this bright and pretty cottage, with its private garden setting, lush vineyards and forest beyond. in the heart of Alsace's rural wine country.

Simply furnished and full of natural light, Côté Jardin can be a sunny summer retreat where one can lounge and catnap in the garden, or escape in wintertime to spend cozy evenings drinking the local wines in the warmth of the large wood stove. 
Indoors, the south-facing family room opens onto the eating nook, the library, and the well-equipped open kitchen with bar.  French doors lead directly outside to the garden and furnished patio. 
The two spacious bedrooms are clean and simply furnished, one with a double bed, and the other with a double and a single bed.  Fully updated bathroom includes tub and hand-held shower and a separate toilet. 

The pretty garden is completely enclosed. A lime tree and a catalpa offer shade in the summer, while the terrace allows you to sunbathe all year long, taking advantage of this area's unique and delightful microclimate.

The property is surrounded by grapevines and a forest of acacias and chestnuts whose perfumes come into the kitchen in the late spring and summer.  There is a garden fireplace in the stone wall made from Vosges sandstone, an eating nook and a hammock perfect for a siesta on one side, and chairs for sunbathing on the other side. You can park your car and forget it for a week because walking paths begin at the house and there are bicycles at your disposal. If it rains, you can enjoy the  books and games and TV/DVD player.  The owners live next door and are happy to give you a tour of their winery and suggest other wineries to visit in the region.

The small town of Katzenthal, nestled in a small valley on the Route des Vins d'Alsace, benefits from a wonderful microclimate which allows for the cultivation of some of Alsace's famous Grand Cru wines. One of these, Wineck -Schlossberg, is named for the ruined château that sits above Katzenthal on a rocky peak. Inside the dungeon, there is an archeological museum detailing the history of the c.1300 château. The nearest city to Katzenthal is Colmar, considered to be the capital of the Alsatian wine region. Seated on the Lauch river, sunny Colmar is a delight to visit, with a cityscape that has been extremely well preserved, escaping much of the destruction from the wars of the past several centuries.
