                                                                                                      We first stayed here in 2015 after finding it on HomeAway. I always look for rural/countryside holidays as we come from a busy city - so this was perfect. Plus as an added bonus, it had animals and as my daughter is an animal lover I thought it would be a lovely treat for her. The gite is in a very remote location, its so peaceful and tranquil with beautiful views of the trees and the mountain. We went as 3 generations (grandparents, us and our 7 year old) and we all had the most amazing stay. Vincent and Francois are the best hosts. They will do everything they can to make your stay as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible, they really go out of their way to accommodate you. They are such genuine people - so nice to be around, we had many laughs and lots of fun in their company. Vincent had us all roaring with laughter!! Our holiday at this gite was truly unlike any other place we have visited. In fact, we loved it so much that we visited again in August 2016 for another week and will surely go back again. My daughter still raves about our holiday with "Vincent Uncle" (as she calls him) and Caixon (the dog) and Lili (the goat).......she even tells all her teachers and friends in school!! There are lots of animals - a dog, 4 cats, a goat, ducks, geese, rabbits and more! If you like animals then you absolutely MUST stay here, the animals walk around freely during the day and my daughter loved running around after them and helping to feed them etc. A word of advice though - bring trainers or wellies as there will be animal droppings on the floor, but the inside of the gite is lovely and clean and everything is fitted out luxuriously to the highest standard. I should also mention that although there is wifi in the gite, the signal is weak at times and phone reception (UK 3 network) is non-existent near the gite, but this wasn't a big issue for us. There are plenty of attractions within driving distance and Vincent (always ready to help) will send you his lists and really go out of his way to help you find activities that you and your family will enjoy. In 2015 there were 2 wild deer that came every night to eat food that Vincent put out for them and now one year later, there are 4 deer that come to the house! They come at all times of the day, often when we return from a journey there will be wild stags there standing in front of our car! It is truly amazing! This really is a once in a lifetime holiday, I can't recommend it highly enough!!

It is light-filled, clean, well-maintained and the location was wonderful--calm, quiet, and with a spectacular view! Claudine and Christian were perfect hosts with suggestions of places to visit and generous offerings from their kitchen. We are still talking about the wonderful bread that Christian delivered to us still warm from his oven and the tart that Claudine made later that day! I cannot imagine anyone not loving this property. We would love to return someday.

We received a warm welcome from Jean Luc and his beautiful Briard. Our dog got on so well with her, chasing each other around the fields. The chalet was comfortable, homely and had everything we needed. The view from the balcony was stunning and we enjoyed the ever changing hues thoughout the day during our stay. There are so many birds around and we would fill up the bird table each morning so we could enjoy their comings and going over breakfast. Would recommend trying Jean-Luc's home made apple juice, its delicious. Walks lead right from the door and are extensive throughout the wooded hills which are filled with wildlife, birds of prey, wild boar and deer can all been seen mostly early in the morning. You can also walk off road over the hill at the back to the town which take about 15-20 mins but its just 5 mins in the car. There are castles, beautiful towns, vineyards and Patisserie Receveur at Barr is a must, their cakes are divine. Recommend going for lunch in Andlau which is beautiful, for Alsace onion tart and a glass of muscat. The nearby town has a restaurant, cafe and small shop for bread and essentials. The waterfall is also worth visiting and can be walked to from the town. We would definitely go back and stay again, would really like to see it through the different seasons. For us this chalet had everything we could want from our holiday.
