A comfortable and welcoming hotel at the heart of Alsace

Welcome to Clarisse and Denis’ hotel

Always keen to meet guests from a wide variety of backgrounds, we have refurbished and transformed this old family farm into a hotel ensuring that the original architecture has been preserved. The hotel comprises 19 bedrooms each one offering a high level of comfort.

As an independant hotel in Alsace, the hotel Les Hirondelles is member of the Tourism Office of the Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr region, and is also listed in the Michelin guide, the Guide du Routard, the Géoguide and the Guide Evasion.

As you cross the Ill bridge, you will see the renowned gourmet Auberge de L’Ill restaurant, before arriving, about 100 m further along, at our charming half-timbered farmhouse which offers a glimpse, behind the porch made from Vosges sandstone, of its internal courtyard surrounded by magnificent flower-bedecked balconies.


Its perfect location places the village of Illhaeusern within easy reach of Alsace’s main tourist sites

The village of ILLHAEUSERN, our birthplace, is situated in the Ried region between Colmar and Sélestat and lies, as its name suggests, on the banks of the Ill.

This small Alsatian village with its fish-breeding tradition has managed to preserve its bucolic character which can be discovered through boat rides along the Ill or by escaping into the Ried, an enchanting area of phreatic water, alders, ashes, willows, grey herons, ducks and kingfishers...
