There is so much wildlife, we have seen deer everyday in the garden. Also foxes, badgers, owls & eagles. It is so tranquil. The outside pool is great for the kids (not heated but was warm enough in July to spend loads of time in it). The house itself is well equipped and very clean. We agree with Deborah (below) about the canapé (sofa) and the lack of wifi (although 3g data was readily available). But everything else was so amazing that it didn't bother us too much. It would be so much better if there was 2 proper sofas to relax in the evening but we would definitely recommend this place to everyone. There is an evening market in the village every Friday from July to August where you can buy all your local delicacies. Not seen any other English around but it should definitely be on everyone's bucket list there is so much to do in the Vosges and if you're happy traveling a bit further afield then Alsace is amazing too. One thing to note us that Girmont is 750m above sea level and you will have to travel 10-15 mins to get to the bottom to pick up a main road but the scenery on your way down (or up) is amazing. Fantastic house. Fantastic location. We're going to miss it so much and already want to come back. FRANÇAIS (Google Tranduit) La maison et ses environs sont fantastiques. Il y a tellement de faune, on a vu des cerfs tous les jours dans le jardin. Aussi des renards, des blaireaux, des hiboux et des aigles. C'est tellement tranquille. La piscine extérieure est idéale pour les enfants (pas chauffée, mais était assez chaleureuse en juillet pour passer beaucoup de temps dedans). La maison elle-même est bien équipée et très propre. Nous acceptons Deborah (ci-dessous) sur le canapé (clic-clac) et le manque de wifi. Mais tout le reste était tellement incroyable que cela ne nous dérangeait pas trop. Ce serait bien mieux s'il y avait 2 canapés appropriés pour se détendre le soir mais nous recommandons cet endroit à tout le monde. Il y a un marché du soir dans le village tous les vendredis de juillet à août où vous pouvez acheter tous vos délices locaux. Une chose à noter que Girmont est à 750 m au-dessus du niveau de la mer et vous devrez voyager de 10 à 15 minutes pour arriver au bas pour prendre une route principale, mais le paysage en cours de descente (ou vers le haut) est incroyable. Maison fantastique. Lieu fantastique!!!

The house was very well equipped, spacious, well heated and very clean. The setting of the house is amongst forest, providing privacy, yet only minutes on foot to the village. There are numerous birds and squirrels that can be seen from the house. The town offers thermal baths and a small casino for light entertainment. There are many scenic drives in the area, and historic towns. We would definately consider revisiting this house.
