relaxed eastern holidays

  • 5 of 5

We (4 grown ups and one child aged 2) spend a splendid week in that house. It's really nicely refurbished and well equipped. We used the bikes a lot to make nice tours. Even our child had much fun - throwing stones and branched in the river and canal are real fun. Durning the evenings we love to sit by the fire in the oven. It keeps us really warm...

Last but not least: We were received very nicely and everything was well arranged. All in all a great place to stay.

It is a wonderful house in a row of different houses build together.

All is clean, good beds which is often not normal. Two perfect bathrooms with toilets on first and second floor. A big kitchen with livingroom and extra big table for having breakfast and dinner on the second floor. Big windows, so it is light in the room.

A wonderful new wooden floor. A good view to the canal, only over the street.

It is quite, no noise, so you can sleep very well.

You can walk along the canal or use the bikes.

The customer service is really good. Friends of the owner are living in the street. They are very nice people from England and they help you whenever you want..

We didn't go to a restaurant because we cooked for ourselves which is no problem in the kitchen either you are 7 persons.

We can recommend this property for hundred percent. It is perfect.

I wrote this in English language so that everybody can understand it from overall.

I can give best notes.

extrem feines Plätzchen!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben es sehr genossen. Ein perfekter Platz. Das Haus ist wunderschön eingerichtet, der sehr große Wohnraum mit Pantryküche hat einen traumhaften Blick auf Kanal und Fluß. Beide Badezimmer sehr fein. Alles da, was man braucht. Gute Betten!

Die Menschen am Kanal kommen aus allen Ländern der Welt und sind extrem freundlich.

Der Ort ist malerisch schön auf eine morbide zerfallende Art. Interessante Orte und schöne Landschaft rundherum.

Wir kommen wieder.

Gemütliches Ferienhaus, direkt am Kanal. Geschmackvoll und funktionell eingerichtet, sehr schöne Bäder, großer Wohn-Essbereich. Die Fahrräder waren tipptopp in Ordnung. Nette Betreuung vor Ort und freundlicher Vermieter, sehr gute Abwicklung. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt und unsere Auszeit vom Alltag genossen. Kommen gerne wieder.

pure Entspannung

  • 5 of 5

Im Letzten Jahr waren wir erstmals im Elsass, was uns sehr gut gefallen hat. Dieses mal wollten wir auf die andere Seite der Vogesen und sind in Fontenoy le Chateau gelandet. Eigentlich nur wegen der Bilder der Wohnung, die fanden wir so toll, dass wir kurzerhand gebucht haben. Wir wurden nicht enttäuscht. Die Wohnung ist genau wie auf den Bildern, Küchenutensilien alles da , das Notwendigste kann man im Ort einkaufen, herrliche Backwaren, Obst...Restaurants im Ort. Was man nicht kaufen kann, kriegt man umsonst. Ruhe , Entspannung, Natur einfach schön. Wir waren wandern, mit dem Rad kilometerweit am Canal entlang (niemand fur hinter uns, keiner kam uns entgegen !!!!)und mit dem Auto waren es auch nochmal fast 700 km in einer Woche. Alles top wir gehen wieder hin

Douce France

  • 5 of 5

What a great location! Back in busy Berlin looking out the window into the grey dark sky we still enjoy remembering the sleepy magic of that place, the friendly welcome (thanks to R & M), the comfortable house equipped with everything we needed, the huge kitchen & living room beneath the roof, the beautiful view from the bedroom windows or from the kitchen (we liked especially that one through the windows near the floor straight down to the water), the cute little bakery in the village with the lovely 'religieuse' tartlets (and excellent bread & croissants as well), the bikeway to Epinal along the enchanting canal passing some thousand watergates as well as a houseboat here and there, the even more idyllic but also tougher trail along the water down to Corre (I would recommend a mountain bike), all the other quiet roads and pretty trails we've cycled, the beautiful landscape and villages around not to forget Plombieres les Bain with its romain bath, the really fairylike restaurant 'Les Pont des Fees' in Les Voivres with its unforgettable charming host and the adorable decorated dining room and all the good food and wine we had...

So if you like nature, walking, cycling, may be reading a good book, cooking and relaxing and are not addicted to club culture, vip watching, adventure pools or highspeed mountain bike downhill trails this is the perfect place to go.

Canals, nowadays mainly used for tourist reasons, pass through the whole of France. Your holiday location is situated on the southern connection of the Moselle-Saône canal. The property directly overlooks both the canal and the river. Small tracks along the canal invite you to discover the region by bike. If you prefer walking there are lots of forests around the picturesque valley to explore. Only a few kilometres away you can experience the culture and charm of old french villages. The spa villages of Luxeuil-les-Bains, Plombières-les-Bains or Bains-les-Bains are nearby. Furthermore there are horse riding facilities, a public pool and the possibility of booking a tour in a carriage or boat hire.There are also a number of golf clubs and ski resorts within easy driving distance
