From Paris we journeyed aboard a train to Mulhouse, and from there hired a car and traveled to our home for 10 days, Bourbach-le-Haut
One of the nearby towns, the perfectly picturesque Masevaux
The entire town is like a movie set, small quaint houses, shops and cobbled streets
In the town centre, is the Hostellerie Alsacienne.
Everything about the place is fabulous; from the Star of David chairs, to silver cutlery, and mouth-watering meals; fantastic enough to warrant a second visit before leaving the region
The above is the Trout Amande
And the Duo de Poisson
The whole town is like a movie set
The silence of the midday break shattered by our touristic presence
The town hosts a variety of activities, from flower contests and organ festivals, to The Passion Play
The flowers are not yet in full bloom, but still breathtaking.
The midday day break is from 12:00 – 14:00 daily.
You will find all shops closed, with only restaurants welcoming customers.
We found this affected particularly the smaller towns.
The spring flowers creep from behind the wood pile
Almost everything one sees it photo-worthy
Citizens are rewarded for beautiful gardens – Concours maisons fleuries
A couple of weeks later and we would have seen even more glorious colours
But all in all, Masevaux is easily one of the prettiest towns
Adding to its appeal, is the surprising small number of tourists about town
One thought on “Pictographic – Masevaux”
