You’ll love spending time together in this enchanting mountain setting when the towns and villages are enveloped in a welcoming, traditional atmosphere.

Choose the Massif des Vosges to... admire its magical scenery
Looking for panoramic views worthy of the Far North but much closer to home? With its large lakes, frozen peatlands, vast pine trees and rounded snow-capped peaks, the Massif des Vosges has an air of Lapland about it. The two regional nature parks and twenty mountain resorts will have you in raptures over their breathtaking winter scenery. Enjoy this immersive experience with friends or by yourself during a well-deserved break.
You won’t be able to resist skiing in wild nature under the stars, at sunrise or by torchlight. Contemplate the unusual beauty of the Temple du Donon covered in shimmering frost, meet chamois at the summit of the Hohneck and admire the reflection of the moon on the peaks while a fire crackles in the hearth of your chalet.
Choose Massif des Vosges to... be pampered

Because in our mountains, wellness is more than just a service: it’s a way of life. Lose yourself in a waking dream with outstanding treatments and high-end establishments.
