|relaxing by the pool|
On our last day we checked out of the hotel and drove to the town of Colmar to get more of a sense of the region. We had a lovely lunch of tarte flambe and wandered around the town. All the shops are closed on a Sunday but it was nice to take in the air and the architecture of this pretty old town.
Almost forgot to mention that the food was delicious, although very French = tasty but rich! .. and the wine from the region was also very good. We sampled the Crémant d'Alsace (methode champenoise) and the Pino Noir also from the region which was highly recommended by the Sommelier at the hotel restaurant. Well he would say that wouldn't he .. but he was right. It was the perfect companion for the dishes we had. All in all, a lovely relaxed weekend.
I flew with Swiss airlines from London City Airport to Basel which took only 1 hour and 15 minutes. The flights and hotel were very reasonably priced making it a very do-able long weekend treat! Bonne journée!
