We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 7; grandparents, parents, two boys (4 & 2), and a dog.

The accommodation was right for us, with all rooms being plenty large enough. A slight drawback was the shortage of enough sofas/armchairs in the lounge, on the odd occasions we were all there.

The kitchen was very well equipped and we could prepare any sort of meal. Another slight drawback was the need to negotiate the stairs to get outside with the food, should you want to eat there - all the accommodation is on the first floor, accessed via private stairs.

On arrival the place was in excellent condition and perfectly clean. Denis and Francoise were very welcoming, but perhaps could have left the (quite lengthy) tour and explanations of the property until we had got over the journey. Contrary to the property description, English is not spoken by either of them . However, they are most charming and proved more like friends than landlords as hosts.

I misunderstood the description in relation to the use of the pool (a very good facility it was too); it is shared with the occupants of another, larger, property. This proved to be no great problem to us as most of the time we wanted to use it we had it all to ourselves, but I could see that it would be too small if everyone wanted to be there at the same time. Nevertheless, we found it excellent.

Shopping is convenient, with a baker, butcher and "corner" shop in the village, and an Intermarche and Lidl a few minutes away towards Le Thillot (where there are many, many shops). The Intermarche is open on Sunday mornings, which is great for Saturday travellers.

There are good places to eat at every turn; one recommended by Denis and Francoise for a special dinner (a wedding anniversary) was Auberge des Fontaine in nearby St. Maurice sur Moselle.. It proved an excellent recommendation.

Being a mountain area, the main attraction is the scenery so you need good weather. We had a few rainy days but could still use the pool. When it was nice and sunny it was beautiful. There are many walks, and short and longer drives on roads so quiet as to be a pleasure to drive them. The Alsace wine towns are within easy reach and the Route des Cretes is great. There is a pleasant short walk around The Ballon D'Alsace, as well as The Grand Ballon.

This was a lovely holiday in a beautiful place, enhanced by the hospitality of the owners. I would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Un grand merci à nos hôtes d’avoir fait le choix de notre gîte et d’avoir accordé un instant pour rédiger cette appréciation. Nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir à les accueillir, à échanger nos conversations et à apporter nos conseils afin de leur faire découvrir notre belle région, les Vosges. Concernant l’aménagement du salon, celui-ci est composé d’un canapé permettant une assise de 4 personnes, d’un pouf intégré à cette configuration et de nombreuses chaises disponibles dans les différentes pièces du gîte. Soucieux d'améliorer la qualité de nos prestations, nous aménageons un espace détente SPA et HAMMAM à disposition dès Janvier 2015, afin de compléter votre bien être au quotidien durant votre séjour.

A Brilliant Summer Holiday in the Vosges

  • 5 of 5

We spent two fantastic weeks at the house. The apartment looks great, is very spacious, very clean and very well equipped. The pool is brilliant - with the roof it can be used in cooler weather or opened up electronically in the sun. The gardens are great for kids with badminton, table tennis, swings and enough room for a game of football.

The location is superb. Easy to find - removing the stress of arrival and ideally situated for walks in the hills and forests. The walks are steep in places but the views from the tops of the hills are spectacular and well worth the effort. There's a supermarket a few minutes down the road at Le Thillot and a bakers, butchers and newsagents within walking distance in Le Menil village. Denis and Francoise gave us plenty of ideas for days out and we visited the market at La Bresse, the lake at Gerardmer and the beautiful town of Colmar. Besides all that Denis and Francoise are great hosts and always on hand if needed.

We holiday in France most years and the house, the location and the hosts are just about as good as it gets. We had a truly excellent holiday and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful place.

Gut gelegene Fewo mit freundlichen Vermietern

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung war ansprechend groß, wenn auch unter dem Dach. Das Schwimmbad und der große Garten mit Spiel-und Sportgeräten (Tischtennis, Volleyball, Fussball, Federball) macht die Entscheidung für Familien schwierig vor Ort zu bleiben oder doch sofort loszuwandern. Die Vermieter wohnen im Erdgeschoß und sind somit allzeit erreichbar und haben immer einen Ausflugstip parat, wobei wir ausschliesslich Französisch gesprochen haben.
