The steep escarpments, peaceful lakes and forest covered hills of the region are idyllic, and many visitors to Lorraine accommodation are there to enjoy world class walking and horse riding holidays.

Huge comfortable beds - slept very well here in the peaceful location. Amazing beautiful views across the valley. Well equipped kitchen, nice to have pantry items available. Great communications from a very helpful and friendly hosts. We used this as a base for cycling in the area - would certainly recommend to other similar travellers and couples/families. Thank you Hakim and Fanny - it was lovely!

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!
