Overview

About the property

Charming 3*** cottage, peaceful, genuine, bright and functional

It is ideally located in the centre of Alsace between Saverne and Marmoutier. We are on the crossroads for, as you wish, hiking in the Northern Vosges Natural Park, discover the small and typical villages of the Kochersberg region, going all over the wine routes or reach the capital of Alsace, Strasbourg (35 km).

Our cottage offers all modern comfort in a spirit of authentic renovation and for that we mostly used eco-friendly materials.

Sleeps 5 (up to 7) people. At the ground floor: it consists of a large kitchen, dining room overlooking 2 terraces and the garden. Upstairs: 2 bedrooms, a large TV room with single bed. In the attic there is a large children's space with 2 single beds, a double bed and a library area. Luxury bedding, beds made upon arrival.

Un agréable séjour.

  • 5 of 5

Venu en Alsace pour la période des marchés de Noël 2016, nous avons choisi de nous loger dans cette belle et grande demeure avec nos petits enfants (3 et 6 ans). Nous avons goûté au confort de cette maison typiquement Alsacienne. De l’immense cuisine au RDC, au salon télé et aux deux chambres du 1° étage, à la salle de jeu du 2° étage (équipée de cinq lits) nos petits enfants ont apprécié la place pour jouer. En cette période de fin d’année, nous n’avons pas pu profiter du jardin et de la piscine mais, nous imaginons que l’endroit doit être très sympa en période estivale.

La literie est confortable. La salle de bain, équipée d’une belle baignoire ancienne et d’une douche contemporaine contente petits et grands. Nous avons utilisé le chauffage au bois qui donne une atmosphère douillette et disperse de bonnes odeurs. De plus, les propriétaires sont discrets mais disponibles et nous avons aimé leur gentillesse.

Donc, c’est une adresse que nous conservons car, je pense que nous y reviendrons lors de prochaines vacances dans la région.

Wonderful house in a beautiful location. Everything you could want from a holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very well equipped and has a lovely garden and private pool. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The house has lots of lovely touches like fairy lights in the double bedroom which really make a difference to the feelings to this charming property which has been lovingly refurbished. The pool is a great size and there were 5 people in our group and there was plenty of room for us all. My son really enjoyed the table tennis table and the basketball ring.

Veronique is a wonderful host and was extremely friendly, helping us with any queries and information on places to visit. We were welcomed with a lovely bottle of wine which was much appreciated after our long journey.

It is in a good location to explore the Alsace and we would recommend a trip to Strasbourg, buying the strasbourg pass from the tourist office which saves a lot on the main attractions of the city. We also had an amazing trip to Europa Park theme park in Germany. It takes about 1 hour 15 from the house but is definitely worth it. It's the best theme park we've ever been to.

We went into the local town a few times and there are many lovely patisseries and ice cream shops.

We enjoyed a trip up to the Chateau Haut Barr where there are great ruins and a fantastic view all the way to Strasbourg on a sunny day. There's also a nice bar/restaurant there.

For families who like animals the Parc animaler St Croix was a great trip. It's a lovely park where the animals are very well cared for.

We hope to return one day as there is so much to see and do that 2 weeks wasn't enough!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Jemma, Thanks you so much for your nice appreciation. When we built " la grange de Vicky" it was also to meet people from everywhere. And sometimes it happens that it is like meeting relatives from abroad. You can't see them very often but when it happens, you recognize them immediately. Thanks you for your kindness, you and all your family. I wish you can come again in a not so long future. Bien amicalement Veronique

Très agréable

Nous avons passé un séjour formidable dans un gîte magnifique et fonctionnel, au calme. Idéal pour les enfants, malgré les escaliers ! Merci à la gentillesse de Mme Barny.

Sehr schönes, gemütliches und geräumiges Ferienhaus!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben in diesem Ferienhaus 4 Nächte verbracht (7 Erwachsene) und hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit.

Besonders hat uns der gemütliche Stil gefallen(fast alles ist aus schönem Holz), die Ausstattung ist völlig ausreichend, der Kaminofen macht die Küche sehr schön warm, die Besitzer sind sehr nett und helfen schnell.

Außerdem stehen mehrere Ordner mit Info-Material zur Region bereit.
