We, Phil and Marie, are an Anglo-French couple who decided to give up our jobs and move to France to open some Gites and live the dream.
Having travelled around France looking for a place where we would like to live, we eventually came across the Vosges.
Little known to the French, let alone the rest of the world, we found it entrancing. Its natural beauty and continental climate giving each season a unique feel. With skiing in the winter and outdoor pursuits in the summer it is a perfect area to be.
Easily accessible, our gites are open all year in the village of Champdray on a plateau on the edge of the Ballons des Vosges National Park. In an exceptional location nestled in the landscape, you have a particularly healthy environment throughout the year.
At the heart of an authentic late 18th century Vosgien farm the, tastefully renovated with passion and in perfect harmony with nature, come and enjoy the privacy and comfort to relax.
On a plot of 3 acres, where flora and fauna abound, they are ideally located:
Two gites face the lake of 800m2, the third gite offers panoramic views of the mountains, and fields (at night, you may be lucky enough to see deer or other wildlife).
Our accommodations are accessible (wheelchair friendly) and designed with ecological materials, to give you a pleasant stay in the utmost respect for nature. The heating is geothermal.
Wifi is available allowing you can keep in touch with friends and family.
Our gites are all similar ...
Everything is designed as a cocoon in a Vosgien style:
An authentic setting: the farm has been renovated with the utmost respect for Vosges tradition. A huge renovation of beams, the arched entrance door, sandstone paving, etc has helped to preserve the spirit of the farm.
In each, you get comfort, independence and privacy. You also have use of the Games Room.
Harmoniously decorated with a colorful and traditional resolutely Vosgien, each cottage has its own character.
Two gites are on one level, the third gite has three floors. All are light and airy.
All are accessible to persons with a reduced mobility, the Carirer is fully wheelchair accessible and the Forester has one wheelchair accessible bedroom on the ground floor. All are designed as real cocoons in a Vosgien style to ensure privacy and comfort of occupants, all similar and yet different ...
