The house is located in the NE of France about 6 hours drive from Calais, 1 hour 30 mins from Basel, Strasbourg and Nancy. The main town Gerardmer is 15 mins away, it offers everything: shops, restaurants, skiing, lake etc. The accommodation is cosy and comfortable: radiators and a fire place keep it warm in the winter. It has got 3 bedrooms: 1 double room on the ground floor and 1 double and 1 twin on the first floor; a fully fitted kitchen; 1 bathroom, and a large enclosed veranda.
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
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.
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.
"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
Lovely chalet, comfortable, clean and contemporary while maintaining an authentic feel. Everything at hand that you should need.
We had a really relaxing and enjoyable stay. Loved the wood-burner!
