When I'm talking about Villé hotels, there's much more to it than just one village.
This village is the largest one of a group of 18 villages in Alsace called the
Val de Villé and they all together offer
quite a lot for you on your Alsace vacation.
if you are interested in farm fresh foods like cheeses, jams, honey and
everything else you might find at a small farmhouse inn serving lunch
This group of villages in Alsace is
situated in a valley in the Vosges mountains so you'll find lots of
mountain related activities like horseback riding, mountain climbing and
one of the largest ski areas in Alsace.
So if you're looking for snow, you'll probably find it in here in the winter!
you'll also find distilleries making and selling (and letting you
taste) whiskeys, fruit brandies and fruit liqueurs.
Hopefully you'll find everything that you need to know about Villé hotels and Alsace…
But if you don't find what you're looking for…ask me a question about your Alsace vacation here!
Alsace Daytrips from Villé Hotels
If you're looking at Villé hotels, you're going to need a car...
and the other 17 villages in the Val de Villé don't have train stations
unfortunately, but many of them are very close to each other.
And for those of you looking for more reasonably priced hotels, Val de Villé hotels could be a good choice for you!
fact there are quite a few organized scenic hikes (that you can find
out about in at the Villé tourist office) from one village to another
that are only a few hours round trip if you choose to stay in one of the
Val de Villé hotels...
And although Villé is in a valley in the Vosges mountains, it's still not far from many other interesting attractions in Alsace.
Distances given are the approximate distances from the center of Villé.
Villages with a * have a train stop or train station.
Dambach la Ville*
8 miles/13 km
Dambach la Ville
is the sort of Alsace wine village where you can walk around anywhere
and see something really beautiful, medieval city walls and gates,
beautiful old homes and a very interesting chapel. And there is a train
station, so you can try one of the 30 wine producers in Dambach la Ville
without renting a car!
9 miles/14 km
is known for its Riesling, so if you're a fan, you'll want to stop by.
Speaking of which, Scherwiller has a train station so you can drink to
your heart's content! And you can make a 45 minute walk to two castles,
the Ortenbourg and Ramstein from the village.
Birds of Prey Show
9 miles/14 km
Watching large birds of prey inside the courtyard of a ruined castle
(that you can explore either before or after the show) is a great idea
for older children (over 10). The younger ones are usually a little
scared. It's all in French, but you don't need much translation for this
show and it's very close to Monkey Mountain!
10 miles/16 km
is a small town or a very large village in Alsace that's famous for its
15th century library which contains 70,000 books and documents from the
7th to 16th century and was a part of the medieval Latin School founded
in Selestat in 1441. But it's also a beautiful town to wander around
in on your Alsace vacation. Check out the Tuesday morning market if you
10 miles/16 km
(like Riquewihr) is one of the most beautiful villages in France, but
there are a lot less tourists here. Between Andlau and Barr you'll find
some of the best Sylvaner wine (and many other grape varieties) in a
quiet and peaceful setting.
10 miles/16 km
has been making wine since Roman times when retired Roman legionaires
started planting vineyards here. If you love old medieval houses, you'll
see lots of them here in Andlau and if you're in the mood it's only a
half day hike (3 hours average there and back) up to see two medieval
castles (Haut Andlau and Spesbourg). And when you get back you'll have a
good excuse to sit back and try some Alsace wine on your Alsace
11 miles/18 km
If you're travelling with kids of any age, here's something fun for them...feeding monkeys at a monkey sanctuary near Haut Koenigsbourg! It's a great way to spend a few hours of your Alsace vacation. Then you can head on over to the Birds of Prey Show nearby.
