Located in the Alsace, just on the French side of the border with Germany, lies the pretty town of Colmar. The centre of Colmar sits on the Lauch River, directly east of the Vosges Mountains, and is connected to the Rhine by canal. Colmar was the last town in France to be freed after the second World War, on February 2nd 1945.

Today Colmar is one of the prettiest towns in Alsace, with half-timbered and brightly coloured houses sitting on cobbled lanes. It is worth taking a stroll through the picturesque canal quarter, now known as 'Petite Venise'. Bedecked with flowers and built along the meandering canals, the buildings look as though they have come straight out of a fairytale.

Stresa and Lake Maggiore
4 stars
“On route to Stresa, the overnight stop in Colmar was great. Hotel was good and old Colmar a beautiful medieval town. Stresa was a nice location on the lake. The hotel in Stresa was OK but groups were treated a bit like second class guests, for instance, they had to sit in their specified area in the restaurant and not permitted to dine individually on the terrace, even at breakfast. The rooms tended to be at the side or back of the hotel but comfortable. Organised excursions out were good. The accompanying GRJ rep, Bob Whitworth, was really good. He was well organised, his administration efficient, and he kept the group well informed about each days activity. The Sherpa luggage service was also efficient but the paperwork was a bit onerous. The journey back to UK went according to plan but the evening local delicacy meal at the overnight stop in Dijon was not to everyone’s liking. However, my plate was soon empty. Overall, an enjoyable sojourn in Italy.
