The charm and flavours of Alsace, the friendly welcome, an authentic getaway in an historic and cultural region. Welcome to Isabelle Jeannin’s hotel.
“What motivates me is the contact with my guests, keeping them happy, sharing this ‘like-at-home spirit’ that prevails here.”
In the heart of nature and Alsatian vineyards, very close to Sélestat, Le Verger des Châteaux, The Originals Relais seems like such a peace haven. For Isabelle who runs it, this Dieffenthal hotel must symbolise the Alsatian art de vivre. And invite guests to really make the most of the charms of a magnificent region. Especially as this welcoming and comfortable 3-star hotel is located on the Alsace wine route. Isabelle extols the friendliness and warmth of the service, the pleasure of relaxing in an idyllic setting. The 32 cosy rooms have an authentic charm with the ambiance of a family home. With its restaurant and bar, this hotel is an ideal place to enjoy the gentle way of life in the Alsace region.
Our hotel in Dieffenthal has 26 double and triple rooms and 4 quadruples as well as 2 double rooms for handicapped guests. All are extremely charming with high quality materials, soft or sparkling colours, and an elegant and traditional style. The ambiance is cosy and welcoming. “We want our guests to feel at ease, have space, be able to relax and enjoy the view over the Alsatian vineyard or Haut-Koenigsbourg castle,” explains Isabelle. Some rooms have a balcony and all have a “charming spirit” she continues.

La Table du Verger
The hotel is ideally located between Strasbourg and Colmar, on the Alsace wine route among Dieffenthal hotels. An invitation to sample the charms of the Bas-Rhin department.
VISIT STRASBOURGA trip to Strasbourg always includes the famous Notre Dame cathedral, a real masterpiece of Gothic art. Built between 1015 and 1439, in pink sandstone from Vosges, this cathedral has a remarkable façade and a 142m spire. The view over Strasbourg from the platform at 66m is stunning. Especially the La Petite France district, one of the best preserved of old Strasbourg. Take a mini-cruise along the canals, the scenery is incredible romantic. Boat trips set out from Rohan pier.
TRIP TO COLMARSome call it the ‘Little Venice’. Because Colmar can be visited on foot or by boat on the canals. But with its fountains and half-timbered houses, Colmar remains symbolic of a postcard image of Alsace... The town offers wonderful surprises such as Unterlinden or Bartholdi museums. In the town centre you can see the House of Heads (built in the early 17th century) which owes its name to the 111 heads adorning its façade, or the Pfister house, a beautiful Bourgeois building from Renaissance times but with medieval design.
THE ALSACE WINE ROUTEOpened in 1953, the Alsace wine route is one of the oldest of its kind in France. This route winds for 170km from Marlenheim in the north to Thann in the south of the region. It crosses through 70 wine-growing villages renowned for being the most beautiful villages in Alsace. You can discover the fortified towns and villages of Eguisheim, Kaysersberg, Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr, Andlau, Obernai... If you wish to hike through the vineyards there are around fifty signposted wine footpaths which allow you to discover all the secrets of the most prestigious vineyards.
