The area and how to find your way around
Situated in the north-east of France, Colmar is a charming town of approximately 70,300 inhabitants that forms part of the department of Alto-Rin, in the region of Alsace. The second most important commune of the department and the third in number of inhabitants, only surpassed by Strasbourg and Mulhouse.The best areas to rent a letting in Colmar
Colmar is not a very big city and it is very affordable to walk everywhere. And, although all the neighbourhoods are beautiful, the one we like the most is "Little Venice", full of charming traditional little houses with wooden frames and crossed by the river Launch. In the past it was home to gardeners, wine producers and boatmen, but today it has become one of the favourite places for many of the richest people in the region who have decided to settle in a villa in Colmar. However, the Fishermen's District is also a highly recommended neighbourhood, with its row of houses painted in different colours overlooking the canal, creating an atmosphere of authentic fantasy.
