Sewen house description

Cottage in the countryside, in the Regional Park of the Vosges, conveniently located near the plateau of the Thousand Lakes in Haute-Saône, Alsace and Belfort.

House in a small hidden valley 5km from all shops and services. Former outbuilding of farm Vosges renovated with local, healthy materials and respecting the environment. Chalet-style house with natural, contemporary décor.

Hiking in the mountains, on the stubble and forest in the nature reserve, easy family or for experienced athletes, walk, bike or mountain bike. Plenty of walks in a pristine wilderness, from the cottage.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a Anglo-Franco couple with a young daughter. We fell in love with the Vosges over 10 years ago and have visited the entire region. We love walking and like to take care of our surroundings. Laurent is a guardian for a nearby bog for the Conservatoire des Sites Lorrains. Laurent is an active member of the archeological group that discover and protect old mines in the valley, and helps on a dig each year. The nearby mines of Le Thillot date from the 17 Century. Treacle takes part in the annual Foulées Rupéennes, a 10km running event in the village. Like many locals in the countryside we grow and store our own organic vegetables for the year. We also keep a few chickens and several bee hives.
