Other Friesenheim (67)
19th century Chapel and its guest rooms.
Halfway between Strasbourg and Colmar, this former convent stands on an enclosed and planted plot of 4500 sqm.
Built in 1893 at the instigation of Father Kelhetter, canon of Strasbourg, the chapel first hosted the Sisters of the Cross and then the Matzenheim’s friars until the start of the Second World War.
Fully restored in 2011, the building has been redesigned by a new interior distribution to organize a bed&breakfast activity.
With its own entrance, the former chaplain's accommodation has been redesigned into a authentic reception lounge with a kitchen and 5 bedrooms upstairs, one of which is nestled under the roof. Ideally exposed, the bedrooms offer a privileged view over the surrounding countryside. A pergola, a heated swimming pool and a wellness area with a jacuzzi and a sauna complete these services provided to clients. 140sqm of attic space offers possibilities for additional rooms.
A laundry constitutes a transition space with the private areas and extends to the living room in the nave, lulled in light thanks to generous semicircular openings and a triple exposure. The ornamental paintings on the ceiling -kept in their original state- are part of the decoration.
A spiral staircase leads to the former choir’s tribune which has been transformed in a cinema corner. Both a viewing place and a circulation gallery, a metal walkway with a glass floor leads to two bedrooms sharing a bathroom.
Away from prying eyes, a terrace in sandstone pavers extends over a landscaped pond fed by a spring.
Concrete foundations of a former classroom, unfinished by the Friars, accommodates garages and various cells for cellar use. The interior roadway of the property is extended by an orchard to the old hay barn which is intended to accommodate 2 or 3 horse boxes. A well adjoins the construction and would constitute a water supply.
The undeniable charm of the place and its unique character underline the tranquility that emanates from the site. Ideal for old stones lovers wishing or not to develop B&B activity in a region which benefits from exceptional natural resources which can be enjoyed on foot, by bike or canoe in the many tributaries of the Rhine.
