In a mountain village

Located in a mountain village, surrounded by forest and meadows,''La Forestièr'' is well-named. It is at the end of a small private road off the main road and enjoys superb views over the surrounding countryside. It was built a few years ago in contemporary style in stone and wood. Inside, in the lounge, dining room and other rooms,''nobl'' materials such as slate floors, lime-washed walls and solid oak doors are complemented by designer furniture. The five guest rooms and suites upstairs have a very ''cocoonin'' atmosphere, enhanced by their parquet  floors, their pale-hued walls and a range of traditional local objects and furniture The pretty embroidered bed and household linen is particularly lovely. On some evenings, Catherine and Eric offer evening meals featuring regional specialities that make the most of the excellent local produce, including game (one of Eric’s specialities) as well as other more unusual dishes, such as fig tarte Tatin, wild-boar ham or pumpkin gratin with gingerbread… And to help digest all that, there are plenty of lovely local walks through the forest waymarked by the Club Vosgien. For guests who want to discover more, there is a wine route and pretty villages with half-timbered buildings nearby.
