When we had walked the loop around the town looking at all the traditional shops and houses, greeted the residents, we stopped off for lunch at the Caveau Brunstein, a restaurant and B&B, decorated with period paraphenalia. We had warmed goats cheese and salad which was light and fresh and I would recommend stopping off to sample some of their food.

Today dawned rainy and grey, so we decided to jump in the car and visit some of the neighbouring villages. This was amazing - within about 20 km we visited 6 villages including Ribeauville, Bergheim, St Hippolyte and Riquewihr. We drove around Bergheim and vowed to return as it was so incredibly beautiful with views from the heights overlooking the vineyards and on to medieval villages in the distance.
