About donald

I am French and Iain Scottish. We live in the UK. Le Grand Valtin is a very special place for me as I spent all my childhood holidays there at my grandfathers farm ; it was idyllic...We have been coming every year as a family and our children love it as well.

donald purchased this chalet in 2005

Why donald chose St-Die-des-Vosges area

The area has a lot to offer : stunning scenery, lovely food, plenty to do : skiing,walking, water sports, cycling amongst others.

The property is in a super location, not far from the main road-easier in winter-.

It is a quiet little village but only 10 mins away from shops ( there is a wonderful baker 5 mins away).

The skiing domaine is 20 mins away as is the lake. Walking and cycling tracks on the doorsteps.

What makes this chalet unique

The property is comfortable and can easily accommodate 6 persons.

We have lovingly improved it, adding a new kitchen, a new bathroom whilst keeping its French charm ; it is a family home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The chalet location is in a very quiet and peaceful spot beside a small tinkling stream, on the edge of the village. It has all modern amenities to make our stay pleasant, easy and relaxing. We found the beds very comfortable and the chalet cosy and homely. We enjoyed sitting in the garden which is a little sun trap and has several different seating areas to sit and enjoy the view and the fresh air of the French countryside. The chalet's location is ideal for exploring the local area, the lakes and for some great walks in the Les Vosges mountains."

We had a fantastic week in this very comfortable chalet. It is situated in a quiet and beautiful village. It's a perfect place for walking, swimming in nearby lakes and local sight seeing. We would highly recommend it and hope to return one day. Tanner family, London
