Purchased last year a ‘Groupon’ voucher for a special offer at the ‘La Grange à Germaine’. We finally used it for a hiking weekend which was at the end more a ‘start of the winter’ weekend.
The Sunday of our departure, we had the first snow storm and all roads were blocked. We finally arrived around 15.45h and our massage session was booked for 16:00h. But what a nice welcome, no stress not a bad word, just very welcoming.
It is a small chalet with only a few rooms but each different. We had a very cosy one on the first floor, called ‘Perce-neige’. Everywhere wooden beams (you have to watch your head!), cushions, originally decorated, with coffee/tea facility. Big modern, bathroom with everything you need.
We had a 30 min relaxing massage at the same time and then spent 15 min in the Jacuzzi and another 15 min in the hammam. The spa is small but really nicely done and you feel right away relaxed. You have to reserve the time for the Jacuzzi and hammam beforehand – it will be yours only – no other guests. It is quite expensive (Euro 60) but you have total privacy. We definitely loved it and it is worse the money.
We had dinner at the Chalet. Don’t expect gourmet food, they offer a buffet of local specialities and a small choice of wine. But we found it tasty and good.
From the reservation to our departure, everyone was always very helpful, friendly and service-minded. So all in all we enjoyed our stay very much and I’m sure we will go back there … perhaps in the summer for a change!
