As advertised. A very comfortable, well appointed apartment in an excellent situation.

5 of 5
We spent a most enjoyable fortnight here making full use of the terrace with its large table & comfortable chairs and the very welcome garage. The furnishings are modern, comfortable & the facilities up to date. We cooked most days using both hob & oven. Mme & Mr Claudel are most welcoming & Mme Claudel speaks good English. Communication both during the booking process and during our stay was easy. The location is ideal, next door to a cheerful cafe, very close to the lake, handy for the shops with a supermarket in easy walking distance [for a 75+ man]. Gerardmer is a delightful town, in a picturesque setting, with plenty to do or places to sit & relax. Ivy & I can recommend the apartment without reservation.

Idyllic

On arrival we were greeted by Aline and her husband, Tony, who made us feel like we were long lost relations! The warmth of this couple together with the beautiful studio and the stunning views made us want to stay forever! My son loved the stream trickling through the garden and I enjoyed sitting out on the terrace relaxing in this tranquil location. The homemade jams awaiting us for breakfast were a delicious treat with the brioche. My only regret was that we could not stay longer as we were en route to Switzerland! Thank you Aline and family, we look forward to returning.
