Martine & Jean-Paul Krebs - What about us ?

In 2003, more than 10 years ago, we welcomed our first guests in our first bed and breakfast near Paris and the Champagne vineyards. In 2006, we restored our first historic house in the ramparts of Riquewihr in Alsace. Over the years, we have created 15 holiday apartments in Alsace ...
Rosa Gallica is our family business through which we design and operate our apartments.

Jean-Paul and Martine Krebs - vacation rental owners - French RivieraOur philosophy is that your stay in one of our apartments has to be a highlight of your stay!

We think that - especially for a rather long stay (most of our guests are discovering the slow travel concept and are staying 7 nights and more) - it is not enough to sleep well during the night but it is necessary to enjoy the stay in a place which is somehow of the same level as the historical surroundings, the sea and the mountain: beautiful. We put a lot of effort and care in the renovation and decoration of our vacation rental apartments because we want our holiday homes to be a memorable part of your travel experience to France.
