The Jardins de Sophie: an exceptional hotel-spa
In the heart of the Vosges mountains, between the Lorraine et Alsace regions
Nestled in the Vosges forest, the Jardins de Sophie hotel-spa in located on a 9-hectare estate between the villages of Xonrupt-Longemer and Valtin, only 8 kilometres from Gérardmer.
The Vosges forest, composed of Silver Firs with grey bark and comb-like needles and majestic Spruce trees with reddish-brown trunks, graciously covers the mountains. A dreamy landscape which passes through the seasons adorned with a colour palette of very dark to extremely bright greens mixed with the orangish-brown of autumn and sprinkled with white snowflakes in winter.
Incredible landscape, mountain spirit, total relaxation
Calm and serenity emanate from the large lounge bar with a fireplace at the Jardins de Sophie hotel-spa with its warm woodwork in winter, and the panoramic terrace in good weather. The walls painted with whitewash, between the wood and chrome, highlighted with hints of beige and ochre, natural materials and very contemporary objects adorn this very stylish mountain hotel-spa. We come to escape in nature to relax, to revitalise in the forest only a short distance from the Gérardmer Lake...
Small things, only for yourself: take the time to look around at the nature that surrounds you, escape into a protected and refined ambiance, … After a day of hiking on the forest paths of the Vosges mountains, and a delicious moment in the spa at the hotel, relish a tea, look through a book next to the fireplace. Depending on the season, go mushroom collecting, listen to the stag bellowing in the surrounding forests or participate in sport which can be found in the Lorraine region - enjoy, during a weekend, downhill or cross-country skiing, hiking in the Vosges mountains...
