A comfortable and welcoming hotel at the heart of Alsace

Welcome to Clarisse Guest House

Always keen to meet guests from a wide variety of backgrounds, we have refurbished and transformed this old family farm into a hotel ensuring that the original architecture has been preserved.

As you cross the Ill bridge, you will see the renowned gourmet Auberge de L'lll restaurant, before arriving, about 100 m further along, at our charming half-timbered farmhouse which offers a glimpse, behind the porch made from Vosges sandstone, of its internal courtyard surrounded by magnificent flower-bedecked balconies.

It is in the part of the barn which served as a tobacco dryer that I fitted out my guest house. On the ground floor, find the breakfast room and a small lounge, a place of exchange where you meet with friends or guests before joining the guest rooms upstairs.


Its perfect location places the village of Illhaeusern within easy reach of Alsace’s main tourist sites

The village of ILLHAEUSERN, my birthplace, is situated in the Ried region between Colmar and Sélestat and lies, as its name suggests, on the banks of the Ill.

This small Alsatian village with its fish-breeding tradition has managed to preserve its bucolic character which can be discovered through boat rides along the Ill or by escaping into the Ried, an enchanting area of phreatic water, alders, ashes, willows, grey herons, ducks and kingfishers...
