About the property

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

  • 5 of 5

Wohnung am Waldrand mit Blick auf Wiesen.

Gute Ausstattung und sehr hilfsbereiter Vermieter.

Durch den eigenen Zugang sowohl Über Terrasse als auch durch das Haus fühlt es sich eher wie ein eine Ferienhaus an. Die Ausstattung ist sehr umfangreich und der Vermieter sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir kannten uns nicht aus und waren froh über die guten Tipps!

Séjour détente, nature, comfort

  • 5 of 5

FR : Notre séjour a été très agréable et paisible dans la belle nature. Dans le jardin les garçons ont joué au foot et ont découvert qu'il y a un écho. Et du bain finlandais, le soir ont a vu passer le renard dans les champs et plus tard le grand ours au ciel. Dans le foret on a vu une famille de sangliers. Le gite est vraiment 'comme chez soi' : spacieux, très propre et tout y est. Gérard et Claudine font tout pour ses hôtes. Merci encore une fois !

NL : Ons verblijf was zeer aangenaam en rustig in de mooie natuur. In de tuin hebben de jongens gevoetbald en ontdekt dat er een echo was. En vanuit het Fins bad hebben we 's avond een vos in de velden zien lopen en later de grote beer aan de hemel. In het bos zagen we een familie everzwijnen. De gite is echt 'zoals thuis' : ruim, zeer net en alles is er. Gérard en Clausine doen alles voor hun gasten. Nogmaals dank !
