Everything a home needs this gite has. We really enjoyed staying in this gite and our stay was really relaxing, the surrounding area offered plenty of walks throughout the countryside. The area in general has a lot to offer with a rich history and an owner willing to go the extra mile. Thankyou

                                                                                Excellent property. It has everything you would need, very well equipped, cosy and warm. Lots of toys for the children. The location is peaceful and less than 1 hour driving to Nancy, Mezt, Verdun or Luxemburg. It was a perfect stay, the only slightly negative point I could think off is that the Wifi wasn't really fast. But I will definitely rate the place with 5 stars. Also the owners were helpful and welcoming.
