Alsace and the Lorrain form for many an inseparable unit, although the two areas are separated by the beautiful massif of the Vosges mountains. Monumental cities as Nancy and Colmar have made history. The ancient town of Remiremont is located in between and is the gateway to the Vosges and Alsace.
The green surroundings of Remiremont are perfect for outdoor activities. The mountains and hills, the woods, the water and the beautiful skies: all those elements make the Vosges an area for “the Great outdoor”. Already in the beginning of the 20th century the “Club Vosgien” was active with marking hiking trails. Over the years more than 4000 km of walking trails were constructed and maintained.
Small country roads, winding through the countryside with little or no traffic invite you to explore the area by car or bycicle. Along the way a small town, a walk or a small cafe! The possibilities for cyclists are almost limitless: easy biking on flat tracks along the Moselle-river or perform like Chris Froome through the mountain area of the Grand Ballons.
Villa Moncoeur has a large range of maps, guides and tour-descriptions available. And every morning we offer you a “tailor made” advise on what to do during the day!
