Alcace, FR Real Estate
Although Alsace, FR is the smallest metropolitan région in France, it is big on culture and gastronomy. Strolling down the streets of one of the numerous picturesque villages, you will see Germany’s architectural influence as it shares a northern border with this tiny région in Northwest France. Alsace real estate as a result has a definite Germanic feel to it with its vibrant steep roofed homes and wooden construction which are common in this region.
Step into a local Brasserie to discover the influence Germany has played on Alsatian cuisine, with sauerkraut, pork dishes, and foie gras as stars of the menu. Don’t forget to wash it all down with a tall glass of locally-brewed beer.
Then, take a bike tour of the famed vineyards, imagine life in the medieval castles, go on a hike through the thick green forests of the Vosges Mountains, and end your day relaxing by one of the many sparkling lakes.
Strasbourg is the region's capital and is deeply rooted in history. Remnants of times past can be seen through its outstanding Gothic cathedrals. The city also features an annual Christmas market, an event which attracts visitors from all over Europe.
