Les Jardins du Temps, lying a few kilometers outside of Mulhouse, is a B&B with a magnificently sculpted garden covering two hectares. Over ten years of work has gone into cultivating this patch of greenery that contains hundreds of different species of trees, shrubs, grasses, ferns, and flowers, as well as a maze, an orchard, and two ponds. There are few places more idyllic to holiday than in one of the five rooms here, each styled after a certain plant or tree found in the garden.

Designed by architect Louis Schwartz and opened in 1926, the four-star Hôtel du Parc originally housed a gallery overseen by Mulhouse art dealer Henri Gangloff, and artistic features on its exterior are believed to be the work of Frédéric Bartholdi, the sculptor responsible for the Statue of Liberty. Its distinctive Art Deco style has been maintained throughout its 76 rooms and suites, and the hotel now has a Roaring Twenties-themed bar which hosts live jazz every night.
