Grand Est is full of unusual yet eco-friendly places to stay, where wonders don’t cease at nightfall.

Put yourself in an explorer’s shoes by choosing a vintage tent lodge designed with old-time camping in mind!

To make the most of the joys of the fresh air and unparalleled comfort, head to the ecolodges, cottages and tiny houses offered by our five destinations.

Want to sleep under the stars tonight?

Have you heard of the “bubble” concept? These slices of paradise with transparent roofs offer breathtaking views of the Milky Way. In Grand Est, there is an entire constellation of these unusual places to stay. In Champagne, several of them form the “Route des Bulles” (Bubble Route): admire the heavens under a one-hundred-year-old sequoia, beside a pond, or in the heart of a vineyard. Sleeping in a bubble is a unique experience!

In the heart of the Northern Vosges Regional Nature Park, far from any light pollution, combine elegance and comfort in lodges open to the forest and the sky. Through the skylight or telescope, marvel at shooting stars and the beauty of nature at night.

Cabane et Vallée Haulmé

Climb a tree

Even if it means sleeping in the middle of nowhere, why not get a bird’s-eye view in a treehouse? These charming little wooden houses come in all shapes and sizes in the Vosges forests.

Treehouses in La Bresse invite you to enjoy an unforgettable experience with easy access to outdoor mountain activities. With your feet swinging in mid-air, listen to the gentle rustle of the wind blowing through the trees and the tweeting of birds intrigued by your presence.

In the Alsace side of Vosges, snuggle into the cosy nest of the Cabanes perchées du Grand Ballon – ideal for getting all your friends or family together.
