Here are some hotels and accommodations we know, or our clients stay at. No particular order or preference, they are only suggestions. Just check and feel free to contact them.
Right between vineyards and woods, the Sun Wine gîte is in the middle of Blienschwiller village. Here, the activity of the Alsace Wine Route meets the quietness of the trees. Four cyclists and their bikes will enjoy a fully renovated outhouse in a running vineyard.
Close to Saverne, the hôtel-restaurant Ecluse 34 is between Sarrebourg and Strasbourg on the Eurovélo 5, linking London and southe Italy : the bikepath goes right in front of this place. All is made to welcome cyclists and their bikes. No hilly roads here : along the Marne-Rhine canal, all the family can easily ride this route.
The hôtel de la Couronne accomodates riders right in Riquewihr. Enjoy a nice welcome in a 16th century building, in the middle of one of the famous Wine Route villages. One of the places to be, for one night or a coffee at least. Arnaud and Véronique know the surroundings and will happily give a piece of advice or a nice address… They always take good care of bike travellers!

Almost hidden in the forest, the domaine d’Estary in Lièpvre is however easy to reach by bike. This place of simple nature will make a perfect calm break. As a farm, it is also paradise for children : many animals will make them happy. Groups of 12-15 people welcome!
At the hotel-restaurant Chez Arnold, you will enjoy fantastic surroundings, with views from the Vosges mountains, the Rhine valley and vineyards. The Itterswiller village in on a hilly part of the Route des Vins, opening various ways to a bike trip more sporty than the usual route. You will also be able to taste (very) good Alsace wine.
