Make a holiday rental home or villa in Lorraine, France your home away from home

The Lorraine region of France is found in the far north-east, bordering Germany, Belgium and Luxemburg. The lush, rolling hills and large limestone ridges prove a stunning landscape, riddled with historical monuments which are testament to the region’s turbulent past.

Things to do in Lorraine, France

The natural beauty of Lorraine is wonderfully unspoilt. 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. There are many thousands of miles of walking routes in Lorraine, and after a long day of activity in the countryside, the health spas that line the banks of the Vosges are the perfect place to relax and recuperate.

The rivers and lakes of Lorraine are numerous and natural. There is a great deal of scope for sailing, windsurfing and fishing in Lorraine, and those wishing to explore the region from a unique angle can spend many happy hours silently paddling along the rivers of Lorraine in a canoe.

The gastronomy of Lorraine is famous throughout Europe, especially for its cheese and wines. The most famous dish from the area is quiche Lorraine, which is especially delicious when served from one of the small, family restaurants or cafes that are scattered throughout the region. The long history of Lorraine has meant that the area has changed nationality three times, and therefore the cuisine is absolutely unique and completely enchanting.

Places to visit on holiday in Lorraine, France

The Vosges department of Lorraine is a walker’s and rock climber’s dream. The southernmost department of Lorraine is a region of wooded mountains, where life seems to flow at a pace so wonderfully relaxing that leaving a Lorraine holiday home here is always extremely hard. Outdoor activities thrive, and there is very little you cannot do in the woods, lakes and mountains of Vosges. Skiing is particularly popular in resorts including Gerardmer.

Moselle is home to the capital of Lorraine, Metz. There are many beautiful walks along the river banks from Metz, and the Lorraine National Park is an absolute treasure, especially for walkers and nature lovers. Moselle is also adorned with important historical monuments, the most popular of which are the Gallo-Roman thermal baths and the St Etienne Cathedral in Metz.

Those travelling to Lorraine to contemplate the horrors of WWI couldn’t be better placed than from Lorraine accommodation in Meuse. The haunting battlefields of Verdun and the sobering cemeteries are essential places to visit on any Lorraine holiday.

Nancy, which lies in the Meurthe-et-Moselle department of Lorraine will endear and captivate any visitor. The city has a wonderful mix of historical elegance and art nouveau extravagance, that mix perfectly.

Travel to Lorraine, France

Both Metz-Nancy-Lorraine Airport (ETZ) and Strasbourg Airports (SXB) are within 100km of a holiday rental in Lorraine, France. There are plenty of hire car facilities at the both airports, and in an area with so much to see and do across a large rural region, taking a hire car on your Lorraine holiday is strongly recommended.

Spacious, comfortable property with stunning views

4 of 5
Large, beautiful property which is currently being renovated to an extremely high standard. 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!

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!
