The 2014 Rallye de France — Alsace was the eleventh round of the 2014 World Rally Championship season. The event was based in Strasbourg, France, and started on 3 October and finished on 5 October after eighteen special stages, totaling 303.6 competitive kilometres.

Finnish driver Jari-Matti Latvala won the rally for the first time and in doing so became the first non-French driver to win the Strasbourg-based rally since its inception in 2010. It was Latvala's fourth and final victory of the 2014 season. There were no classified WRC-3 competitors as all those who finished were excluded for homologation irregularities, however they were counted for in the JWRC category.
