Stay in Centerville where the old preserved houses are!

If you will rent a car, you will have enough time to visit the nearby provinces like Strasbourg and see a different side of the region. Colmar and Strasbourg are also perfect areas to visit during Christmas where it becomes a Christmas Town.

There are a lot of Michelin restaurants in the area so go take your pick!
