Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in St-Die-des-Vosges area - La Ramée

Gîte with 3 bedrooms, beautiful view of the bog and forest of Upper Meurthe

A vacation for all seasons

Rent this spacious, light, airy 3 bedroom farmhouse apartment in a small hamlet surrounded by forest. There is a large balcony with a magnificent view of the woods and the bog. Located in the Ballons Regional Natural Park, the heart of the Vosges mountains, this lovely hamlet is only 3 km from the picturesque village of Xonrupt-Longemer with a variety of shops. Lake Gerardmer, the largest in the Vosges and its beach is only 6 km away.

The furnished apartment is 93 sq meters (1050 sq ft). The blue room has a double bed 140x200cm. The purple and the green rooms have two single beds each measuring 90 by 200cm. Children and babies are welcome and we will provide a playpen, changing table, baby bath, highchair and baby carrier upon request.

In summer sit out on the large balcony where you can grill and eat at a picnic table. In the winter you can enjoy the warmth of the wood stove.

This is a smoke-free, pet-free apartment.

Conveniently located

The main shops are a 3 minute drive (bakery, post office, ATM, butcher, delicatessen, pharmacy, tobacco, newspapers, restaurants, bars, grocery in summertime). And 6 minutes away are supermarkets open year around. There is lovely market with local produce held on Thursday and Saturday mornings. Two cinemas and a casino are only minutes away.

Enjoy the outdoors

Our region is known for its calm and relaxing environment, for walking, hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, alpine skiing and snowshoeing. With over 200 kilometers of trails, this area is ideal for mountain biking and there are bike rentals on site.

From your balcony the view of the bog, the forest and the blue line of the Vosges is sublime in every season. You can observe a wide variety of wildlife. Deer graze at the foot of the house; foxes regularly promenade across the property. In September and October you can hear the bellowing of the stags and watch as they fight during mating season.

In the summer enjoy the grilling and eating in the garden with swings for the children.

A beginner’s ski slope (ideal for youngsters) is less than 3 km away. Much to their delight children can also sled here. Ski slopes are 10 minutes away at Mauselaine and Schlucht. There are Nordic skiing tracks nearby or make your own.

As we are located in a regional park there are well marked hiking tails with varying degrees of difficulty. There is fishing in rivers, lakes and ponds and you can buy daily or weekly permits. In autumn enjoy picking a wide variety of mushrooms (including ceps, chanterelles). June through December pick brimbelles (local blueberries). Or just look at the wide variety of flora and fauna in the mountains and wetlands.

Within a 15-minute drive you have a wide choice of activities.

In the summer: walking, hiking, paragliding (even for beginners), beaches and swimming in lakes of Xonrupt-Longemer and Gérardmer, tea farm, climbing and tree climbing , minigolf, rowing and canoeing, pedalos, sailing, tennis, waterslides and summer luge, dog sledding with wheels.

In the winter: downhill and cross-country skiing, sledding, snowshoeing (rental on site), cross-country skiing (rental and guided outings, downhill on site), dog sledding, ice skating on the lakes, kite surf skating.

In all seasons: swimming, artificial ice skating, climbing wall, casino, cinema and exhibitions.

Entertainment at hand

Cultural and sporting events abound: Fantastic'Art, the festival of daffodils, triathlon, fireworks August 15, the International Festival of Stringed Instruments at Kichompré and more.

Visit places of interest: a hydraulic sawmill only found in the Vosges; Xéfosse farm with our beautiful Vosges cows; candy factory that makes bonbons des Vosges; a local mine pit

Visit geological and gem exhibitions.

The area has restaurants, cafes, bars and even discos.

Only fifty kilometers away:

· See memorials of the Great War 1914-1918 at Grand Linge and Grand Armand.

· Visit museums, against all expectations showcasing relics of the Celtic era and the Gallo-Roman era found here.

· Discover Celtic wall fortifications (oppida) which can be seen throughout the Vosges. Follow hundreds of miles of what were once old Roman roads on bike, by foot or in a car.

· Visit the twin towns of Baccarat and Deneuvre. One famous for crystal the other the largest collection of Hercules statues built by the ancient Romans here.

· Eat the cheese of Munster and watch the storks.

Gite confortable et excellent accueil

  • 5 of 5

Gite très confortable, très bien équipé, correspondant parfaitement à la description.

Prix tout compris, que de bonnes surprises (quelques provisions, équipement ménager très complet, équipement bébé ...).

Gérard tient à ce que votre séjour soit agréable et ne ménage pas ses bons soins.

Vous trouverez même un choix de cartes de randonnée prêtes à l'emploi !

Gite à recommander sans hésitation.

une magnifique semaine de Noël

  • 5 of 5

Merci à vous deux Gérard et Claudine pour votre gite très agréable et très bien équipé. J'ai même pu faire la dinde de Noël!!

Nous avons été ravis tous les cinq de nos soirées au coin du poêle, de la vue superbe de la tourbière depuis la terrasse , de la proximité des sapins et de la forêt. nous avons fait de très belles balades dans le coin , si près des crêtes et du Valtin...

Un plus aussi pour le spa des jardins de Sophie hôtel si près et qui nous a bien accueillis un soir de pluis

Dommage, pas eu de neige...vous devez être servis depuis!

Je ne vous oublierai pas...pas plus que la bergerie de Straiture!!

Very good choice

  • 5 of 5

Simply Perfect ! Very Clean, very well furnished, games , very nice view, home-made maps, owner's kindness and advices (restaurants..)...... Best vacation rental & owners for many years.

Simplement excellent : Propreté, équipement, localisation, gentillesse et discrétion des propriétaires etc....

Tout est parfait, jusque dans le moindre détail (petites attentions (notamment les confitures maisons et le miel local) les conseils, les suggestions de fermes auberges etc..)...

Venu pour le brame du cerf et les promenades, c'est un spot idéal (sites naturels exceptionnels à proximité).

Mes parents retraités, ont apprécié la vue et la terrasse, ma petite nièce les lectures et jeux mis à disposition. Moi, j'ai adoré les cartes IGN personnalisées et indications pour les balades à pied et en VTT à proximité.

Ancien élu local, et fin connaisseur de la région, Mr Fabrizi, nous a aussi permis de rencontrer un ancien du village et de mieux connaitre l'histoire des lieux; Bref, plus qu'une carte postale, un lieu, un univers à découvrir !

En tout points : Un exemple à suivre...

Des vacances idéales

  • 5 of 5

Excellent séjour dans les vosges! Le gite correspond parfaitement aux photos et au descriptif, avec tout le confort. Très bien équipé pour l intérieur, extérieur et jeux pour les enfants. Le bain nordique est à tester! Le cadre est magnifique, en pleine nature, avec pas mal de rencontres avec la faune! La région offre beaucoup d activités (ballades, baignade, visites, randonnées, ...). L acceuil de Gérard et Claudine est excellent, avec beaucoup de sympathie. Bref une très belle rencontre avec les vosges et les vosgiens. Nous recommandons vivement le gîte pour d excellentes vacances!

Heerlijk plekje

  • 4 of 5

Het huis ligt in een hele mooie, rustige omgeving. De herten lopen 's avonds door de tuin en je loopt vanuit het huisje direct het bos in. Het huis is schoon, compleet (vooral de keuken) en van verschillende gemakken voorzien. Het huis is voorzien van een lekkere houtkachel, die ook in juni nog wel van pas kan komen...

Er is een fijne veranda met ochtend-/middagzon en daarnaast een ruime tuin met ook avondzon. Kortom, een plekje om naar toe te gaan!

Eigenaar spreekt goed Engels en kan voorzien in tips over de omgeving.
