About The Owner

The owners living in The Netherlands and regularly travel to the Vosges to stay in the main house to enjoy walks in the mountain, skiing in winter and enjoying Alsace with its beautiful cities - Colmar, Strasbourg and of course the Alsace wine route.

Why The Owner chose St-Die-des-Vosges area

Beautiful peaceful location with 4 seasons - Summer sports and sightseeing, Winter sports, Autumnal colours and fresh Springs with the countryside awash with minature daffodils.

What makes this house unique

Sehr gemütliche Basis für schöne Wanderungen

  • 4 of 5

In "Cheval Blanc" hat soweit alles gepasst. Vermieter sind super umgänglich, Wohnung ist sehr geräumig und in Küche und Wohnzimmer ist alles vorhanden, was man für einen Urlaub in den Vogesen benötigt. Einzig die Betten sind etwas unbequem (aber völlig ausreichend) und Bad/Dusche ist etwas dunkel, daher "nur" 4 von 5 Sternen. Nicht desto Trotz empfehlen wir die Unterkunft gerne weiter. Wer einen ruhigen, etwas Abgelegenen Ort sucht und mobil ist, ist hier sehr gut aufgehoben! Wir würden sofort wieder kommen.

Prettige, zonnige, comfortabele, wandelweek.

  • 3 of 5

Wij hebben een week gebruik gemaakt van "Le Cheval Blanc", de woning was van alle vereisten voorzien. Ruim voldoende inrichting aanwezig, helemaal als je slechts met 2 pers van het huis gebruik maakt. Grote keuken, goed werkende apparatuur. Aangrenzende woning was niet verhuurd, waardoor wij toegang/beschikking hadden over het riante balkon met geweldig uitzicht. Omgeving leent zich goed voor korte en langere wandelingen.

Schöne Ferienwohnung

  • 4 of 5

Schöne, helle Ferienwohnung mit herrlichem Ausblick vom Balkon bei fairem Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Wir waren eine Woche in der Gite Cheval-Blanc und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Die Verwalter der Ferienwohnung, Dawn und ihr Mann, sind sehr freundlich und haben uns jederzeit für Fragen zur Verfügung gestanden.

Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, es gibt einen großen Esstisch im geräumigen Wohn-Ess-Bereich und der Balkon lädt zum Grillen mit dem dort vorhandenen Weber-Kugelgrill ein. Leider ist im Schlafzimmer kein Kleiderschrank, sondern nur eine kleinere Kommode vorhanden, sodass wir unsere Koffer nicht auspacken konnten. Das Bad hat ein nettes Ambiente, durch die kleinen Fenster wirkt es etwas dunkel. In der Dusche sind Beschädigungen am Einstieg am Boden, weshalb es sich empfiehlt etwas aufzupassen oder Badeschuhe zu tragen.

In der näheren Umgebung sind Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Bäcker, Metzger, Super U), Tankstelle und co vorhanden.

Mit dem Wetter hatten wir großes Glück und konnten tolle Wanderungen in den märchenhaften Wäldern machen. Auch gibt es wunderschöne Ortschaften und Burgen zu besichtigen.

Für die Endreinigung stehen alle benötigten Putzutensielien bereit.

Wir können den Aufenthalt mit gutem Gewissen wärmstens empfehlen! Unser Urlaub war sehr erholsam. Wenn es uns nochmal in die Gegend verschlägt sind wir gerne noch einmal dort zu Gast.

Très bel appartement au calme, avec une jolie vue et proche de tout

  • 4 of 5

Notre semaine de vacances au gîte s'est très bien passée et Dawn et Paul nous ont très bien reçus.

La description du gite indiquée sur le site est tout à fait conforme à la réalité. La décoration est soignée et de bon goût. L'électroménager et les ustensiles de cuisine sont très complets (et en bon état) ce qui permet de se préparer de bons petits plats. La literie de la chambre est correcte (deux lits d'une place qu'on peut réunir). Le salon/salle à manger est très spacieux avec une jolie vue sur les champs de moutons et la montagne depuis la terrasse ensoleillée.

Nous avons particulièrement aimé sa situation proche des sentiers de randonnées, du joli lac de Longemer (idéal pour faire un tour de pédalo) et de Gérardmer. Il y a de la place pour garer sa voiture en toute sécurité devant et sur le côté du gite.

Nous avons découvert une très jolie région et nous n'avons pas eu assez d'une semaine pour la visiter. Nous reviendrons sûrement pour continuer notre exploration.

Ruim, van alle gemakken voorzien huis.

  • 4 of 5

Deze vakantiewoning heeft een zeer ruime (eet-) keuken en zitkamer.

Er zijn wel trappen om op en af te gaan, dus daar moet je rekening mee houden.

Vanaf het balkon heb je een prachtig uitzicht op het bos en de hele dag de zon.

Alles wat je nodig hebt is in deze woning aanwezig, er zijn zelfs bakbenodigdheden.

Deze woning is echt voor rustzoekers en wandelaars, echt grote steden liggen er niet in de buurt.

Wij waren er in de zomer en hebben genoten van het zonnige balkon, de wandelingen en natuurlijk het lekkere eten.
