Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Fraize - La Folie des Vosges

Elegant and exceptional house with stunning views

n the heart of the Upper-Vosges, close to the famous Route des Crêtes, just next to the picturesque Alsace and the lakes of Gérardmer and Longemer this elegant house with extraordinary architecture can accommodate up to ten persons. The house and the large garden are facing full south with a magnificent view embracing the valleys of Fraize, Plainfaing and Le Valtin, just under the Vosges side of the Col du Bonhomme which connects the Vosges and Alsace.

The house was entirely rebuilt in 2011 and presents an extraordinary architecture with an elegant and functional furnishing, far away from the classical wooden construction. The living space of 170 m² is spread over two floors. On the ground floor there is the entrance hall and the living room with comfortable sofas, stereo system and a stove where you can sit by the fire and relax in the evening. In the dining room of 50 m² the dining table has plenty of space to enjoy the meals together. The large windows open directly to the south facing terrace. The functional kitchen is fully equipped and overlooks the living area and the dining room. It opens to a terrace facing west. A separate WC is also available. On the first floor there is the sleeping area with three bedrooms. The large bedroom for two persons has a large king size double bed and an ensuite-bathroom with shower and WC. Each of the two other bedrooms also has a king size double bed as well as two bunk beds so that each bedroom can sleep four persons. The bunk beds have a size of 90 x 200 cm and are suitable for adults. In addition there is another separate bathroom with shower and WC.

Four parking spaces are available. Alongside the house there is a barbecue area with barbecue, wooden table and benches. In addition you can sit outside of the large windows above the pond where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside and the huge garden with the small landscape pond.

You might perhaps appreciate to rediscover a taste for reading or the joys of cosy chatting evenings in the warmth of the stove or to sit under a starry sky, according to the season. You have also at your disposal a TV to watsch DVDs, if you would like to.

About Anne & Zak

An architect and an amateur interior designer, both outdoor enthusiasts.

Anne & Zak purchased this house in 2009

Why Anne & Zak chose St-Die-des-Vosges area

We were particularly enamored with the view offered by the property. Also the house was a nearly ruin when we bought it, this was a bless for our inspiration as this allowed us to carry out a full restauration of the building!

What makes this house unique

In the heart of the Upper-Vosges, close to the famous Route des Crêtes, just next to picturesque Alsace (Colmar, Kaysersberg, the Wine Route…), the Valley of the Lakes of Gérardmer and Longemer, our house can host up to 10 guests eager to spend some holidays with friends or family or simply take a long week-end break.

Head away from the crowds into the serene Parc Naturel Régional des Ballons des Vosges, 3000 sq km of pristine greenery in the southern Vosges, where you can enjoy a vast scope of activities :

* Winter-time : cross-country skiing, down-hill skiing, snowshoeing in the ski areas close-by: Gérardmer, La Bresse-Hohneck, Le Lac Blanc...

* Summer-time : hiking, mountain biking, fishing, swimming, paragliding, karting, horseriding, golfing… and many other activities to be picked according to the mood of day !

* Do not forget that spring and fall are full of surprises in the Vosges such as mushrooms and berries picking and that these seasons will offer you the most magnificient scenes such as the flowery Hautes-Chaumes (high altitude pastures) in spring or the colorfull mountain forests of the Indian summer...

wahrlich ein tolles Domizil für einen Aufenthalt in den Vogesen

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus in seiner Lage und Ausstattung ist hervorragend für einen schönen Aufenthalt in den Vogesen geeignet. Das Domizil erfüllte alle erforderten Wünsche und die Lage bot sowohl einen schönen Ausblick wie auch eine gute Startposition für Ausflüge in die Umgebung. Die Kommunikation mit Anna und Zak funktionierte von Anfang an und sie waren immer sehr hilfreich, sodass wir uns immer gut betreut wußten.

Wir waren zu 7 in diesem Haus und hatten den umfangreichen Platz und das schön eingerichtete Umfeld sehr genossen.

Diesbezüglich können wir das Haus jederzeit weiterempfehlen und würden auch gerne wiederkommen!

@Anna und Zak: vielen Dank für einen schönen Aufenthalt bei euch!

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für Ihre positive Bewertung, wir freuen uns immer wann unsere Gäste sich bei uns wohl fühlen und unsere schöne Region genießen. Wir würden uns freuen Sie wieder bei uns begrüßen zu dürfen, vielleicht auch im Winter Saison wann die Umgebung noch viel anders zu bieten hat : Langlauf-Ski, Abfahrtsski, Schlitten, Schneeschuh Spaziergänge, etc… Alles Gute und bis bald, Anne & Zak

Un séjour exceptionnel!!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine à la folie des Vosges.

L'accueil de Anne et de Zac fut extrêmement chaleureux et attentionné aussi bien à notre arrivée que le jour de notre départ. Ils ont été aux petits soins pour nous. La maison correspond en tout point à la description du site: déco soignée, maison très bien équipée et extrêmement propre. Nous louons des maisons depuis plusieurs années et la qualité de la prestation est vraiment à souligner. La semaine fut trop courte pour tout découvrir de cette belle régions des Vosges. Les activités sont multiples pour toute la famille et à proximité de la maison: ski, promenades, visites... L'année prochaine nous reviendrons c'est sûr...

SIlvesterurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben mit zwei Hunden eine viel zu kurze Woche in der Folie des Vosges verbracht. Das Domizil war so schön wie erwartet, die Fotos im Internet geben die wunderbare Wirklichkeit genau wieder. Das Haus ist wunderschön und gepflegt. Außerdem ist es top ausgestattet, wir haben nichts vermisst und uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Unsere Vermieter waren vor und während unseres Aufenthaltes sehr liebenswürdig und bei allen Fragen jederzeit überaus hilfsbereit. Wir können das Haus nur empfehlen und kommen hoffentlich bald wieder!
