Such a Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Grand Valtin is a beautiful home away from home. Isabelle was a very caring host who made sure we had no worries or needs. Her home has all of the amenities that we needed and everything was very well taken care of and very clean. The interior of the house is very well decorated and very beautiful. The spaces are comfortable and we were incredibly happy with our choice to stay there.

We spent 16 days in France and Germany, but some of our favorite days and memories are from the Grand Valitin!

Chalet très cosy avec vue superbe

  • 5 of 5

Ambiance montagne très confortable et chaleureuse. Un endroit privilégié en position dominante. Idéal pour rayonner dans les Hautes Vosges avec des soirées au coin du feu et des ballades autour du chalet. Le Sauna est très sympa et la maison est super confortable pour 9 personnes.

Très bien !

  • 5 of 5

Chalet confortable, chaleureux, propre et bien agencé. Nous étions 11 jeunes adultes et il y avait suffisamment de place.

Situé dans un endroit calme et un peu à l'écart. Non loin d'activités comme la randonnée, le ski, etc...

Traumhafte Lage

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben unser Familientreffen mit 6 Personen fuer eine Woche hier verbracht. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefuehlt. Prima Kamin, Badezimmer und Wohnbereich. Den Stern Abzug gibt es fuer die sehr weiche Matraze in einem Schlafzimmer, dass der TV ziemlich versteckt ist und der Balkon ist recht schmal und ungepflegt. Zudem gab es kein trockenes Holz fuer den Kamin - starke Rauchbildung. Alles in Allem aber eine sehr gute Unterkunft.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comment and glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm just a bit surprised about the wood, as there is dry wood ( more than 2 years old) under the balcony. You might have taken wet wood in the garden ? Sorry for that ! As for the mattress, they are all new and high quality with different levels of softness, as everyone has a different vision of what is a good mattress. With slight differences, that allows to choose according to different tastes, but you unfortunately might have got the type of mattress you don't like. Hoping you'll come again. Isabelle
