The House of the 4 Travelers
A New & beautiful holiday apartment for rent
Our new apartment in the lovely village of La Vancelle is the perfect place for your headquarters in Alsace. It offers an incredible combination of all advantages the traveller might look for a comfortable and practical discovery of Alsace:
The House of the 4 Travellers is a beautiful building full of character built in 1930 and inspired by Art Deco style. In the midst of the Roaring Twenties, - its style, modernity and quality of construction - was considered as remarkable in the small mountain village of La Vancelle. Today, after a beautiful restoration and development of two elegant apartments, it will be a romantic, comfortable and relaxing accommodation for your holiday in Alsace, as well as your base camp to discover the whole region.
La Vancelle is a small Alsatian mountain village, nestled on the southern slope of a mountain arch that rises to about 855 meters.
Only a wise eye can see the village from the valley. Hidden in a beautiful forest, it is a haven of peace and nature. And yet it is easily accessible and ideally located, away from the crowds but just minutes from the wine route, the wine villages and the major tourist attractions as The Eagle sanctuary (volerie des Aigles), the Monkey Mountain (montagne des Singes) and the castle Haut Koenigsbourg.

(*) The name of the House of the 4 Travellers is a wink to those who made its history.
The house was built in 1930 by the forester of the great forest of La Vancelle who wanted to make it the home for a well-deserved retirement. This is our first traveller. All his life he had traveled the roads and trails in the mountains and the forest. A little distance travel but permanent, deep and attentive, listening to nature, man and wildlife. It is in his memory that we have chosen the name Randonneur (the mountain hiker) for the holiday apartment of the house, with a decoration that evokes a mountain home.
At the time the house was built, the second traveller was in Africa, in Kenya. He spent many years before acquiring the house in the early 60s. He was a passionate of images and photography. He left some of its archives on the spot who are now participating in the decoration of our private apartment in the same house.
The third traveller is in fact a couple: the current owners. They traveled all over the world and especially in Africa for years, supporting humanitarian projects and cultural development through the Sahara, the Sahel, Congo and Gabon ...
The fourth traveller, is ... you! You, - the traveller who came from the other side of the ocean, river or just the mountains - have chosen to spend a few relaxing days in our comfortable home, discovering the mountains and the forest, the vineyards and the wine route and the picturesque villages of Alsace. We hope that your stay at our House of the 4 Travellers will be one of the highlights of your trip in Alsace.
