Located in the heart of the Ballons des Vosges Regional Nature Park, at almost 600 meters altitude, our last wooden chalet combines luxury and modernity in a very warm setting. It’s the ideal starting point for a multitude of  outdoor sports activities.

This new chalet was opened on December 15, 2017. Entirely built by Stéphane, Karine and her family, it is a little gem to discover absolutely! 

Modern and warm mountain-style chalet with a mixture of stones and wood. The furniture of the chalet will be made by the family with local wood.
In summer, our cottage is the starting point for many family walks or for experienced hikers, including the famous GR7. You can also practice cycling and rollerblading safely on the nearby green lane (bike path of about 40 km). In summer you can rent electric bicycles if you wish, according to availability and on request.
In the air, you will also admire our mountains from the paragliders.

If you want a quieter holiday, you can stay at the cottage and enjoy its large terrace and the private indoor pool. You can also enjoy the sauna in complete freedom.

In the winter, the Vosges mountains invite you to share its festivities of cross-country skis, alpine skis, torchlight descents, not to mention the toboggan runs for the little ones. The green way, every winter, turns into a cross-country ski trail that you can reach directly by putting on your skis.

And don’t forget the sauna, very popular in winter, with a little dip in the snow to cool you …. And always relaxation with the heated pool all year round.

Nature lovers and sportsmen, we will be at your disposal to advise you, so that you can fully enjoy your stay in this park of greenery.
