Chateau de l'Ile is located between Strasbourg and the International airport, in the suburban village of Ostwald. The original Chateau de l'Ile building itself is only part of the property. For the most, the wings of the building where the majority of the rooms are located were added recently and they were made in the style of the typical Alsatian houses. All the rooms are very comfortable and very nicely decorated. Particularly the bathrooms are excellent, spacious with double sinks and with power jet showers independent from the tubs, in all bathrooms. This 19th century chateau stands in a 10 acre park in a wooded loop of the Ill River. It allies traditional Alsatian architecture: half-timbering, sand stone, flowered balconies, and terraces. Chateau de l'Ile offers a selection of restaurants: one gastronomically and another specializing in regional cuisine, located at water’s edge. This is a perfect location for anyone visiting Strasbourg whether for business or pleasure because it offers the charm of a chateau lifestyle practically at a stone throw from downtown Strasbourg. Its location and its excellent facilities give it the status of a luxury resort. The attractive indoor fitness area has a pool, sauna, hammam and solarium as well as a place to work out. And there is a fitness course if you need help with your resolve!

At the gates of Strasbourg, in the peaceful village of Ostwald, property developers were on the look-out in the Seventies. They had their eye on the château in the commune that is so delightfully bordered by the swift waters of the Ill and its derivation, the Little Ill. The edifice had been abandoned and was inexorably falling into ruin since the local authority opposed the construction of rows of apartment blocks or suburban houses in rows on this unique site, the cradle of the commune. Hearing that it was for sale, Pierre Traversac, the eldest son of the famous hotelier René Traversac, visited the area. He was enchanted by the exceptional site while remaining fully aware of the considerable construction task in prospect: restoring the crumbling château and enlarging it into a harmonious building. He accepted the challenge and purchased it in 1991. After two years of work, typical Alsatian village houses now surround the pristine château, replacing the old barns devoted to the production of medicinal herbal teas. The entire property is pretty and welcoming and the opening took place on 28 April 1994. An ideal place to relax and to visit as a tourist or for business reasons, half-way between Strasbourg and its airport - this attractive Nineteenth Century Castle Hotel is encircled by a 4-hectare park on a tree-lined bend in the Ile River. The location of this hotel is ideal for those who wish to explore Strasbourg and the Alsace Wine Trail ("Route des Vins").

About Strasbourg

 

 

The capital of Alsace, is one of France's greatest cities and the birthplace of paté de foie gras. It was in Strasbourg that Rouget de Lisle first sang "La Marseillaise," the French national anthem. Strasbourg is one of France's major ports, only 3km (2 miles) west of the Rhine. In addition to being host to the Council of Europe, Strasbourg is home to the European Parliament, which convenes at the Palais de l'Europe. In 1871, Strasbourg was absorbed by Germany and made the capital of the territory of Alsace-Lorraine, but reverted to France in 1918. One street is a perfect illustration of the city's identity crisis: more than a century ago it was avenue Napoléon. In 1871, it became Kaiser-Wilhelmstrasse, then boulevard de la République in 1918. In 1940, it became Adolf-Hitler-Strasse, and ended up as avenue du Général-de-Gaulle in 1945.
