About Andre Wirth

The place.

Andre Wirth purchased this cottage in 1978

Why Andre Wirth chose Hohrodberg

The house has been our main residence. Due to some development, we have moved to an apartment near our workplace, and opted for renting the house rather selling it because of our attachment to the site.

What makes this cottage unique

Rooms are big and spacious, offering certain warmth, as we have been told. The house has been completely restored and restructured (it was a hotel). It has been tastefully decorated, and it has stylish furniture. Overlooking the South, or on the sunny side, you can enjoy an exceptional and aerial view of the Munster valley, the large ridges of Hautes Vosges, and the Petit Ballon mountain range. The place is exceptionally quiet. The house is surrounded by meadowlands, away from traffic, and it is ideal to rest and revitalise. Game watching (roe deer, foxes, birds, and much more) is possible from the windows of the house. The house, however, is not isolated. (See our photos). Less than an hour away, you can find tourist places, cities, and villages, as well as the heights of Alsace and Vosges.

lovely house and furniture in a beautiful area, very quite and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in a beautiful area that we had not visited before. The house was very comfortable and located in a lovely area that was also very quiet and restful. Despite our language difficulties, Andre was helpful and recommended some wonderful places to visit. We had the good fortune to experience the views from the summit of the Holneck on a crystal clear morning, quite breath-taking and highly recommended as were the three (plus beau villages) all just a short drive away. A trip to the Black Forest was also well rewarded. Our visit coincided with the grape harvest and the changing colour of the leaves which made the whole holiday seem quite dreamlike. As ever in France, visiting the local markets are a lovely experience and the produce available seems endless. Merci Andre, j'espere visite encore. Adrian B.

Gut, gemütlich und ruhig gelegen.

  • 4 of 5

Schade, dass man in der großen Wanne nicht Duschen kann, ohne das ganze Bad zu überfluten. Es fehlen Glasduschwände.

Ich bin 1,86 m . Mir waren die Betten mit 1,90 m zu kurz. Schlafen ging nur diagonal. Die Matratzen sind aber gut.

Der Aufenthalt, 1. Septemberwoche, war aber sehr schön. Im Haus ist sehr viel Platz und auch die Außenanlagen sind gut zu genießen.

Uneingeschränkt: empfehlendswert

Mooi huis in prachtig gebied

  • 5 of 5

Mooie grote woning, hier en daar wat verouderd maar heel compleet. Super. Het huis ligt in een gehucht op de Hohrodberg, prima wanneer je voor rust komt. Uitzicht is prachtig, de omgeving is fantastisch. Wij hebben vanuit Hohrodberg 14 dagen dagtrips gemaakt, waaronder Colmar, Mulhouse en Straatsburg. Daarnaast veel gewandeld. Zeer aan te bevelen.

Antikes Haus mit Erholungscharakter

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit der Familie mit zwei Kindern dort. Das Haus ist toll, schön am Berg gelegen, man ist direkt im Wald und auf Wanderwegen. Auch die Umgebung hat genug Programm zu bieten. Der Gastgeber spricht sehr gut Deutsch und wahr sehr hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend. Insgesamt ein toller Urlaub! 5 Sterne, wir kommen wieder :-)

Einziger Verbesserungswunsch: Für Familien wie uns mit kleinen Kindern würde ein Kinderhochstuhl die Mahlzeiten noch etwas vereinfachen.

Sehr schönes Haus und sehr freundlicher und zuvorkommender Vermieter.

  • 4 of 5

Die Lage des Hauses ist wirklich sehr schön. Man genießt eine tolle Aussicht und die sehr ruhige Lage. Das Haus ist für 6 Personen ausreichend groß und schön eingerichtet.

Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich und bemüht. Seine Restaurantempfehlungen sind wirklich gut.

Lovely mountain house in a small village

  • 5 of 5

André is a great host: he was very nice and helpful, gave us a lot of recommendations and did everything to make our stay an excellent experience. The house is very big, cosy, tastefully furnished and adapted to kids. It is located in a small village and there is a breathtaking view over the Vosges. It is an ideal starting point for exploring both Colmar and La route des vins, and the ski resorts La Bresse and Gerardmer. All in all, I can highly recommend this place. Merci beaucoup, André !
