Beautiful rural cottage approx 20 km from Gérardmer. Here you can rest, repose, relax!
Ferme La Fortune, an over 200-year old estate, is situated on the fringes of the High Vosges and has been lovingly restored by the current owners. The isolated farm is located in a small pastoral valley, surrounded by flowery meadows, a rambling little stream, and lush green forests, approx. 600 m asl. Our comfortable guest cottage in its remote setting is your ideal holiday destination if you enjoy nature activities, a restful environment, and good food.
The region offers countless activities all year round: in winter, you may go downhill or cross-country skiing, snowboarding, or snow-shoeing. Summer-time offers mountain biking, hiking, sailing, windsurfing, swimming, canoeing, and horse-riding. Gérardmer, “La Perle des Vosges”, is close by with its grand lake, many shops, and good restaurants. Drive around the countryside and explore the charming villages of Alsace, go on a short trip to UNESCO world heritage city Strasbourg with its many cultural highlights, visit historic Colmar - the "capital of Alsatian wine", or tread in the foot-steps of Joan d'Arc in her birthtown of Domrémy. Your host, living in the farm house next door, will be more than happy to point out these and many other interesting destinations for you. Or maybe you prefer to just take a relaxing stroll in the beautiful pastoral countryside, lunch on a regional Munster cheese on the terrasse, and enjoy a good glass of wine by the fire-place - please feel completely at home!
The comfortable cottage features two seperate bedrooms and a couch-bed on the gallery, a complete kitchen with dining table, and a sitting area with fire-place, a complete bathroom with WC, bathtub / shower and a second seperate WC. Fresh linen and towels are provided for you. In addition to the basic cottage rental you are also welcome to book a breakfast or a typical local dinner featuring the specialities of the Lorraine region, venison from our own hunting, salad and vegetables fresh from the garden (half-board).
We look forward to welcoming you!
