Our 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 we have created two elegant apartments: one for our private home and one as a vacation rental for guests. It will be a romantic, comfortable and relaxing accommodation for your holiday in Alsace, as well as your strategic base camp to discover the whole region.

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 (you can see it from your window).

(*) 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 independent holiday apartment in our 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 there 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 that are now participating in the decoration of our private apartment in the same house.

We, Martine and Jean-Paul, the owners, are the third traveller. We traveled all over the world as we were working for airlines ... Now this house is our private home.

The fourth traveller, is ... you! You 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.
