Haegen Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Our 2700 m2 Alsatian property is situated in the middle of orchards

Our 27 hectares property is located among orchards, on the edge of the forest in Haegen, 5 min away from the town of Saverne including numerous shops and beautiful buildings to admire. We are close to the Regional Park of the North Vosges and wine road. It is a peaceful heaven and an excellent starting point to discover Alsace. This Alsatian style house is located in the uppers in a peaceful location. The lodging makes part of the accommodation. It measures about 70 m2 and has an independent rear access to an 18 m2 living room including an equipped kitchen (ceramic hobs, oven, dishwasher, microwave, etc.), a dining area and lounge (sofa, television, etc.). A staircase leads to the two upstairs bedrooms (one of which has a 160 x 200 cm bed, the other has two 90 x 200 cm beds), a bathroom (hand basin, shower, toilet etc.) as well as a study area including a computer with Wi-Fi access. All the rooms have been fully renovated and have a nature view.

About Dominique Defrance

Dynamic nature lovers, we particularly appreciate hiking.

I dedicate myself to managing the accommodation and the selling of clothing, while my husband works as space engineer in Germany.

Dominique Defrance purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Dominique Defrance chose Saverne area

We enjoy human contacts and this is why the idea of making an accommodation in our large property became obvious to us. We enjoy sharing our little corner of paradise and make discover this beautiful region of Alsace.

What makes this cottage unique

L'Orée d'Haegen is ideal for those seeking tranquility, serenity, yet without being too isolated.

Located in a dead end road and in an elevated position, our accommodation enjoys a superb view of the castles of Haut Barr and Grand Geroldseck that can easily be reached walking.

The garden with open access to the orchards and its proximity to the forest offer the pleasure of seeing roe deer and even stags crossing the garden. Our place is the starting point of many hiking and cycling trips.

Hopefully we can let you soon share our love at first sight for this place !!!

See you soon,

Domi et Bruno

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nous avons grandement apprécié cette petite halte dans ce gîte superbement décoré avec beaucoup de goût. Sans parler de la tranquillité des lieux, de la vue extra sur la forêt noir au petit-déjeuner, excellent. Bref, que du bonheur!!!!!

A très bientôt

Great peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our week at L'Oree d' Haegen. The apartment is very comfortable and beautifully furnished. Being close to hiking trails makes getting into the forest very easy. Also an easy drive to Strasbourg to use the excellent park and ride system. Very helpful hosts and lots of great maps of the area.

We loved the peace and quiet. The lovely view is a real plus. Thank you Dominique and Bruno.

Beautifully decorated and modern

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable apartment is easily within reach of Strasbourg for day trips and has a mass of walking tracks pretty much at the end of the yard. This apartment was clean, beautifully decorated and well appointed. The hosts are kind and very helpful.

Superbe endroit, un grand vent de ressourcement.

  • 5 of 5

Les propriétaires nous ont reçus dans leur charmante demeure perchée au sommet d'un village typique d'alsace en lisière de la forêt. Dans un cadre paysager sublime, ce gite est idéal pour se ressourcer en pleine nature sans oublier sa proximité avec Strasbourg (30 min). Le petit déjeuner copieux fait maison nous a rassasiés pour la journée. L'ambiance du gite est géniale.

Que dire quand il n'y a rien à redire ou trop à dire ! C'était vraiment une semaine de vacances très appréciable dans un lieu privilégié, calme, agréable, ... Pas de soucis concernant la description du gîte et l'accueil, pas de sujets non plus sur l'équipement...

Franchement allez-y et inspirez vous de cette belle région qu'est l'Alsace.

On y retournera et merci encore !

Bien cordialement.

Le gîte est très agréable et joliment décoré. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et se sont fait un plaisir de nous conseiller sur les visites incontournables.

Un séjour au calme, dans un cadre magnifique.

Nous avons passé, avec nos 2 enfants, un séjour inoubliable.

The town of Saverne mixes a rich historical heritage with the comfort of a modern town. With flowers in summer and with lot's of lights for Christmas, it is a romantic town which invites you to idleness. Come to explore its battlements which surrounded the town from the road to Paris to the back of the Rohan Castle and along the canal during the Medieval Period, the Saint Jean–Baptiste Roman Church, Recollets Cloister, marina, and lock located in the town-centre for the great joy of walkers. The Katz tavern is a beautiful Alsatian timbered dwelling built in 1605. On Thursday mornings are markets offering local farmhouse products. Come also to discover the town of Strasbourg, a cultural and historical capital city with impressive stoneware Gothic cathedral and 'La Petite France', a quaint area of the Old Strasbourg.
