Rosheim in Alsace, France

We stayed in a gite in Rosheim in Alsace, France when visiting the area. It was a charming little village about 30 minutes outside of Strasbourg. Surprisingly, we found the boulangerie (bakery) there celebrating its 400 year anniversary. It is the oldest boulangerie in France! See this enchanting town:

Haut-Koenigsbourg Castle in Alsace, France

The Haut-Koenigsbourg Medieval Castle sits on the Wine Route outside of Strasbourg in Alsace, France. We made a stop to see it. It was very touristy and very difficult to find parking so expect a long walk to get to the castle, but it was still worth seeing.

Alsace, France: One of the Most Beautiful Regions of France

Alsace is without a doubt one of the most beautiful regions of France. With its both Swiss and German architecture dating back from Medieval times, the flavor of the towns is quaint, colorful and festive. Flowers adorn the windows and the pastel colors of the buildings give them a cheerful, airy feel. See for yourself.

The Fortress Town of Perouges, Central France

On our way back from Bernard's parents in Central France, we stopped at this little fortress town of Perouges. It was lovely to just walk the streets and read the history on the walls. And they have a local gateau (cake) smothered in butter and sugar that was YUM.
