A fine holiday retreat. #Vosges #Mountains #France #Food #Wine #Walk #Ski #Photo

Post by Lynn and Paul Henni.

When you find a great place to stay on holiday, the test of how good it is in reality is usually whether you return or not. In our case, we’ve been back to this place many times and every time find the combination of location, hosts, food, wine, accommodation, general ambience and, more recently, options for photography as excellent as in previous visits.

Located in the Vosges mountains in Lorraine region of France, on the border with Alsace,  the Auberge de La Poulciere provides a perfect central base for walking, skiing (in winter, um, obviously) and visiting the local parks, lakes and mountains.

It is run by Jocelyne & Michel Bouguerne-Arnould, the former an English teacher and the latter an excellent chef.  Anyone who knows us will know that good quality food and drink, ideally offset by lots of long walks, are what we like and we like this place a lot. Using the best of local ingredients including herbs picked freshly as the chef requires them, they provide a very friendly welcome and exceptional value for money.  Featuring local produce, the menu includes a good selection of Alsatian wine and the local Munster cheese often makes an appearance (which Lynn particularly enjoys!).

Location and more details. 

I thought this was a photo blog, you ask…well, OK, here are some photos then.
