Restful Retreat in Picturesque Hill Country

Schnitzel and sauerkraut are on the menu at Alsatian Restaurant, the onsite eatery at Hotel Alsace & Spa. But the view from the windows here—rugged hills covered with scraggly grasses and succulents under a vast open sky—seems better suited to a Western than an Oktoberfest celebration. The restaurant’s menu pays homage to the German and French roots of Castroville, which is located about 26 miles west of San Antonio.

Perched on a knoll overlooking miles of scenic Hill Country, the hotel features 38 guest rooms linked by gradually curving walkways and shaded by a long bonnet roof. French doors in each room open onto a private balcony offering panoramic views of the landscape. At the onsite Spa at Hotel Alsace, you can choose from an array of soothing treatments, including hot-stone massages and facials tailored to your skin type (a spa credit is included with some options).

In the morning, visit Alsatian Restaurant to enjoy the breakfast buffet. With this Groupon, you’ll have access to the restaurant's salad bar and lunch buffet—a smorgasbord of offerings ranging from authentic alsatian beef bourguignon to all-American fried tilapia and mashed potatoes.

Castroville, Texas: Alsatian Inflections in Small-Town Texas

The self-billed "Little Alsace of Texas," Castroville provides an intriguing contrast to nearby San Antonio’s Tex-Mex culture. Founded by Alsatian immigrants in 1844, the town contains dozens of carefully maintained historical structures. The oldest of these, the Steinbach House, actually began its life in Alsace in the 17th century before being shipped to Castroville in 1998. It has since reopened as a museum filled with period furniture and confused serfs. From here, it’s roughly a 30-minute drive to San Antonio, where you can experience world-class Latin cuisine, museums, and the lively river walk.
