The near­by forests are loca­ted in the natu­re reser­ve «Parc natu­rel régio­nal des Bal­lons des Vos­ges». Here, man hard­ly inter­ven­es and the forest is lar­ge­ly left to its own. The wild trees over­grown with moss sur­roun­ded by count­less small lakes of the «Pla­teau des Mil­le Étangs» lea­ves a mysti­cal impression.

Com­mon room
Common room oven and kitchen

The fur­nace forms the cen­ter of the com­mon room and thus divi­des the room into kitchen/dining area and living room/sewing cor­ner. The kit­chen is ful­ly equip­ped, also for coo­king lar­ger quan­ti­ties. In the living room is a day­bed, a couch and a pia­no. In the near­by cor­ner is a sewing machi­ne and a basic sel­ec­tion of threads and fabrics.
