Very Good

“Great week Great Scenery and Great Hospiltality”

Reviewed 18 Nov 2012

We Arrived with 6" of snow to greet us but Paul and Dawn welcomed us with the log burner in full flow and the chalet warm and cosy , the cakes went down a treat as we settled down for our first night . When we woke we had crystal blue sky and with the snow glistening in the sunlight it was a sight to behold The Chalet more than meet our expectations nestling in a valley with great views across and down the valley, Gerardmer is about 5 miles away with plenty of shops and the lake. We will be back as a week was not enough to explore the Vosges a beautiful area which seems to be off the tourist radar which makes for a peaceful and relaxed stay

“Cosy and welcoming gite in a stunning unspoilt region of France.”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2012

Superbly located gite allowing easy travel to mountains, lakes and beautiful and interesting towns and villages. Gerardmer very handy for shopping. Trip to Colmar worth it to see architecture, old streets and canals and on the way stop at Munster to see the storks in their nests on the tops of buildings. Buy some Munster cheese which although smelly, is delicious. Boating on Lac du Longemer and excellent hill/forest walks around Lac des Corbieres. For a rainy day the railway museum at Mulhouse is excellent.

“Excellent property”

Reviewed 24 May 2012

Really nice property with great views, great comfort and facilities and really helpful owners. We would certainly use again although you do need a vehicle to the nearest shops.

“Beautiful location, quiet, tranquil, well appointed chalet, very helpful owners.”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2011

Dawn and Paul were very helpful without being obtrusive. They really did go out of their way to help us with anything we needed eg. ski hire, where to go skiing etc. or any questions about the chalet. They got out of bed at 2.00a.m. to help us up the road when we arrived! We only skied in Gérardmer (about 20mins away) which was more than adequate for us as first time skiers. Lessons are available. We had a family lesson (2 adults 3 children) for 70 euros 1hr. Ski hire for all of us was 270 euros for 4 days. This included boots, skis, poles and 1 helmet. This was at Lou ski Pierre Du Monde. La Bresse is a much bigger resort and about 1/2 hr away which would offer more advanced skiers better skiing. You will need either ski chains or a 4x4 to get up the very last bit of road to the chalet if there is snow on the ground. We ended up leaving our car at the bottom in a safe place and walking up, but this wasn't a problem. We left all the skiing equipment in the roofbox. The chalet has a very efficient log burner (the logs were free) which soon warmed the place up and a fantastic ceiling mounted clothes dryer (I call it a Sheila) which got all the ski stuff dry each day. The downstairs bedrooms were a little cold especially the first night, and we were a little reluctant to leave the electric heaters on much, as electricity was not included in the price and know how expensive this can be. But once we had been there a couple of days the warmth was not a problem. I think the property had been empty for a while before us so needed a warm through. We only ended up paying £40 for the electricity. All the bedrooms having an en suite made getting out in the morning much easier but be careful about using too much hot water and the last person having a cold shower. It happened once to us but once we realized we just spaced the showering out to give the water a chance to warm up again or were quick. (Teenage daughter washing hair was a bit of a problem). The views from the living room and main bedroom were stunning. The kitchen has all you need. I cooked in it several evenings without any problems. The wine bottle opener could do with replacing as the bit you need to pull on is now sharp. Minor complaint though. We visited a lovely Christmas market in Munster. The local one in Geradmer was very good also. The Vin chaud is a must especially after skiing. There is a lovely creperie on the right hand side just as you get into Geradmer. Definitely worth a visit. All in all a very pleasant holiday. Very relaxing even though we are a family and it was the week before Christmas. We would definitely go this time of year again as the slopes are so much quieter than February half term. Not always guaranteed the snow though. And much less busy than the Alps.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your review and delighted you enjoyed your stay in Le Cerf. Cork screw has been replaced! Electric costs were €31 rather than €40. Best wishes.

“Le Cerf, delightfull and a perfect stay to de-stress”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2011

We stayed at le Cerf with the whole family (5 adults). Very nice chalet with lovely views and enough space for all of us. The surroundings were splendid. Nice opportunities for skiing at Gerardmer and la Bresse. A 3 hours guided walk with raquets on through the snowy woods at le Schlucht was wonderful and memorable. As for our friendly hosts, Paul and Dawn Keddie, all our credits to them both. We really had a magnificient stay in the Vosges!

“Excellent Accommodation in a Great Location”

Reviewed 21 Dec 2011

This is one of the best appointed Gites that we have come across, the English owners who live next door are very knowledgeable on the area as well as willing to offer help on your stay in France. They do not however impose themselves on your stay. Location of the Gite is in a quiet village, with Auberges in close proximity, they were however closed during our stay so cannot comment on their services. Instructions to find the Gite are clear with only the final few kilometres being tricky (just make sure you read the Km numbers on the D73? Signposts. Inside the Gite has 3 large bedrooms, one on the upper floor with access from the main living area, it is en-suite with a large double bed. Downstairs are the other 2 bedrooms one being en-suite with a very good shower, this room was during our visit fitted with 2 single beds. The 3rd bedroom has a double bed with French doors to the garden. Downstairs is also a bathroom with bath and overhead shower. With door configurations this becomes en-suite. All bathrooms have electric heaters in various forms. The main living area has comfortable seating for 6, plus a dining area and a very well appointed kitchen containing dishwasher, cooker, microwave, large fridge and freezer unit. The main living area also has a very efficient wood burning stove and during our visit, mid October (including snow) was very efficient at heating the upper area. Hot water is provided by solar panels and is plentiful and very hot. Off of the main living area is a small balcony with lovely views over the valley. Accomodation also has free WiFi The area which is the gateway to the Alsace, offers excellent sightseeing opportunities, Strasburg a city of contrasts is about 1.5-2 hours drive, Park and Ride is cheap about 3.5 euro per car ( in our case for 4!) and includes bus/tram ride into town and back. Colmar ( even better than Strasburg in our opinion) about 40 minutes and the German border about 1 hour away. The area also has a great abundance of walks/hikes /cross-country skiing to suit all abilities. Nearest ski slope is 500 metres away. The autumn colours during our stay were spectacular and the reflection in many of the beautiful lakes were stunning. The same lakes provide canoeing and bathing in the summer months. Overall this is one of the nicest regions we have visited in France.
