A lovely cozy holiday home

5 of 5
We came to Le Grand Valtin and stayed in the house called Le Cheval Blanc. A nice and cosy house. We came to ski. However like anywhere else in the world, the weather patterns are changing rapidly and the warming of the globe did not assist us greatly with snow in this region. But we did some skiing at La Bresse. It is a lovely area with beautiful forests. The most rainy day we took a trip to Colmar, which is a lovely "Vakwerk" town about an hour diving from Le Valtin. The last day of our holiday it started to snow and within 3 hours the world looked like a fairytale skiing resort. This is definitely a place we'd like to come back to, even last minute when there is lots of new powdery snow. Till next time!
