“Lovely location, warm welcome.”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Our first visit to Alsace. For us a lovely mountain location with walks up into the mountains and forest right out the door.

The owners live next door and we enjoyed our warming casserole on arrival. Bit tricky finding the place as we did not know what a 'marie' is and assumed this marie thing would have a sign indicating it was indeed a marie!

Comfy, cosy accommodation, hygienic if a little dusty here n there.
Kids loved the owners energetic dogs.
Wood burner heats the whole living area very well.
Under floor accommodation a bit unwelcoming and very cold, especially the bathrooms with freezing cold tiled floors and non wooden walls.

Great views.
We cooked most evening as we enjoy getting our own stocks from local supermarkets and stores. Things like rabbit with baby onions in wine made from scratch.

We went during halve term and caught a few days snow which was great for tobogganing in the village and elsewhere - great speed if you lay face down and do a fast run up push off yourself.

A small wooden farm auberge at the bottom of the village ski area served amazing and cheap food - the French couple owners are incredibly friendly and fun. It's like being invited into someones home.

We recommend these auberges. A nice restaurant in the next settlement - I think called Le Valtin - the owners of the rental property recommended it. Amazing meats grilled against an open fire in front of you.

Beautiful forest all over the place.
Nearest local town 'Gerardmer' a bit bland and could be anywhere with its large warehousing etc. Munster is a lot nicer and has quaint shops and eateries.

Drove to spa town in Germany recommended by the owners - was warm and sunny and a good experience but a bit like the film Cocoon - lots of oldies everywhere.

Drove to Mulhouse zoo, worth the effort but could find nothing to eat or drink anywhere on the main roads, so we went into a large place opposite zoo to find ourselves amongst lots of oldies and ompha music, but could not get to the bar as it was rammed. Take a packed lunch to the zoo.

Anyway we had a great time and very restful stay. Maybe next time we'd go later in year as it did become a bit grey and slushy some days. Skiing seemed reasonable but we imagined it gets very packed and chaotic as it's relatively close to a lot of large towns and cities and closer to them than the alps.

Thanks to the owners for a lovely stay.

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.
