Flashing back to my first visit to Colmar, France back in October 2016. How did I even forget to post this? The perfect dreamy little town in the Alsace region of northeastern France is only few hours by train from Basel or Strasbourg. Colmar, to me was sort of love at the first sight. It's everything I ever dream about my simple life in Europe...one day. Cobblestone streets, old buildings, charming old town, cafe, conversations in French. Obviously I never heard anything about Alsace region or Colmar until I stumbled upon Colmar images on Instagram and I told myself I have to visit this place one day.
Where to stay? I stayed at Hotel Le Marechal located in old town of Colmar. Beautiful hotel, romantic room, great service, great location! Just parfait!
What to do? Nothing much but relax! Colmar is a perfect holiday destination if all you want to do just relax. I spent 3 days 2 nights there with pretty much the same itinerary: walk around, take pictures, coffee break, read book, eat, nap and repeat.
What to eat? Colmar is famous for tarte flambee, pastries...pastries...pastries...and of course wine! But my highlight was definitely dinner at La Pignata, an Italian restaurant located about 15 minutes walk from old town. Excellent service ( the owner and staff were really sweet to me ), great food... Don't ask me why Italian food in Colmar, I just love pasta and risotto, I could eat them anytime!
