We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 7; grandparents, parents, two boys (4 & 2), and a dog.

The accommodation was right for us, with all rooms being plenty large enough. A slight drawback was the shortage of enough sofas/armchairs in the lounge, on the odd occasions we were all there.

The kitchen was very well equipped and we could prepare any sort of meal. Another slight drawback was the need to negotiate the stairs to get outside with the food, should you want to eat there - all the accommodation is on the first floor, accessed via private stairs.

On arrival the place was in excellent condition and perfectly clean. Denis and Francoise were very welcoming, but perhaps could have left the (quite lengthy) tour and explanations of the property until we had got over the journey. Contrary to the property description, English is not spoken by either of them . However, they are most charming and proved more like friends than landlords as hosts.

I misunderstood the description in relation to the use of the pool (a very good facility it was too); it is shared with the occupants of another, larger, property. This proved to be no great problem to us as most of the time we wanted to use it we had it all to ourselves, but I could see that it would be too small if everyone wanted to be there at the same time. Nevertheless, we found it excellent.

Shopping is convenient, with a baker, butcher and "corner" shop in the village, and an Intermarche and Lidl a few minutes away towards Le Thillot (where there are many, many shops). The Intermarche is open on Sunday mornings, which is great for Saturday travellers.

There are good places to eat at every turn; one recommended by Denis and Francoise for a special dinner (a wedding anniversary) was Auberge des Fontaine in nearby St. Maurice sur Moselle.. It proved an excellent recommendation.

Being a mountain area, the main attraction is the scenery so you need good weather. We had a few rainy days but could still use the pool. When it was nice and sunny it was beautiful. There are many walks, and short and longer drives on roads so quiet as to be a pleasure to drive them. The Alsace wine towns are within easy reach and the Route des Cretes is great. There is a pleasant short walk around The Ballon D'Alsace, as well as The Grand Ballon.

This was a lovely holiday in a beautiful place, enhanced by the hospitality of the owners. I would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

A Brilliant Summer Holiday in the Vosges

  • 5 of 5

We spent two fantastic weeks at the house. The apartment looks great, is very spacious, very clean and very well equipped. The pool is brilliant - with the roof it can be used in cooler weather or opened up electronically in the sun. The gardens are great for kids with badminton, table tennis, swings and enough room for a game of football.

The location is superb. Easy to find - removing the stress of arrival and ideally situated for walks in the hills and forests. The walks are steep in places but the views from the tops of the hills are spectacular and well worth the effort. There's a supermarket a few minutes down the road at Le Thillot and a bakers, butchers and newsagents within walking distance in Le Menil village. Denis and Francoise gave us plenty of ideas for days out and we visited the market at La Bresse, the lake at Gerardmer and the beautiful town of Colmar. Besides all that Denis and Francoise are great hosts and always on hand if needed.

We holiday in France most years and the house, the location and the hosts are just about as good as it gets. We had a truly excellent holiday and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful place.

Gite tout simplement superbe. Très spacieux et calme réalisé avec du matériel de qualité aussi bien pour la literie que le mobilier en général, Mr et Mme PERNOT s'investissent vraiment dans le gite pour offrir aux locataires des prestations exceptionnelles (même les VELUX sont électrique pour leur ouverture/fermeture ou pour l'occultation) sans parler du SPA et HAMMAM qui sont tous simplement sublime et nous ont fait passer un réel moment de détente et de Bonheur à toute notre famille. Mr et Mme PERNOT sont très avenants et vraiment au service de leur hôtes. A recommander vivement!

Ein wunderbarer erholsamer Urlaub!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben den Urlaub in Le Ménil sehr genossen! Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr geräumig, hervorragend ausgestattet und sehr sauber. Wir waren mit unseren Söhnen (10, 14) und den Großeltern dort. Wir alle haben die Freizeitmöglichkeiten am Haus (Tischtennis, Pool, großer Garten => Wiese zum Fußball und Badminton spielen) sehr genossen. Der Pool war wegen der Überdachung auch wunderbar bei etwas kühleren Temperaturen zu nutzen. Direkt von der Wohnung aus führen einige Wanderwege durch eine unglaublich schöne Gegend. Weitere Ausflugsziele zum Wandern gab es an den umliegenden Seen (ca. 30 Min. Fahrzeit). Besonders wohl haben wir uns durch die äußerst zuvorkommende, hilfsbereite und freundliche Betreuung der Familie Pernot gefühlt. Ein herzliches Dankeschön von uns allen für die schöne Zeit, wir konnten uns sehr gut erholen und haben in den angenehmen gemeinsamen Gesprächen auch unser Französisch aufpoliert :-)
