The ideal base for Cycling holidays
The local countryside is a gently undulating agricultural plain with river valleys and forests. There are a few steep hills.
This is ideal cycle touring country, as the distances between the picturesque villages are typically only about 5 km.
The roads are generally quiet and well-surfaced, and there is a fine gravel towpath along the banks of the river which can be followed for many miles.
For the serious enthusiasts, the Vosges mountains are only an hour’s drive away, with steep, twisting ascents up to the Grand Ballon d’Alsace at 1178 metres.
Bicycles can be kept safely in the large barn adjoining the house.
