Vieux Temps

Welcome to our holiday home (gîte) "Au bon vieux temps".

Time is constantly running away from you. If you want to take a step back, relax, enjoy nature and recharge your batteries, then you have come to the right place.

Our house is located on the outskirts of Tignécourt, a small village in the Vosges department, just a few kilometres from the Haute Saône and Haute Marne.

The forest of Tignécourt lies on the edge of the Darney forest massif. The forest massif is considered a model for the forest of tomorrow.

It is known for its diversity - an area of oaks, beeches and hornbeams, wet valleys with streams lined with ash and alder trees.

Our surroundings are characterised with agriculture, meadows and forests. A paradise for nature lovers, with popular excursion destinations, sporting activities and cultural offerings all within a short drive.

The spa towns of Contrexeville, Vittel and Bourbonne les Bains are nearby (20-30min), with a variety of health and wellness offers.

Free Wifi is available.

The House

The farmhouse, which dates back to the 18th century, has been lovingly renovated both inside and out in recent years.

 Most of the work was done according to old traditions, such as insulation with hemp and lime, natural wooden floors from our region, and the use of lime wall paints to create a good indoor climate. We have placed a lot of emphasis on ecological building materials and have also used them to a large extent.

It is a unique place that combines local tradition with modern comfort. It offers space for 4 persons. A cot can be added.

The Kitchen

The heart of the house. The kitchen offers space for 6 to 8 people.

It invites you to cook and eat together. Cooking is done on the gas cooker or our old wood burning stove, which also heats the kitchen.

Refrigerator with freezer compartment, toaster, filter coffee machine, kettle, microwave, raclette and fondue set, and all kitchen utensils are available in abundance.

Dish towels and washing-up liquid are provided. High chair for children is available.

The living room

The living room is furnished with 2 sofas (2 seater and 3 seater) and an armchair, stereo with CD, TV with satellite connection, information folder with information about the region, activities and excursions, various games for children and adults and a small library with multilingual books.

The exposed ceiling beams, wooden ceilings and natural stone walls create a cosy atmosphere to feel at home.

The tiled stove provides the house with a pleasant warmth, which even our four-legged guests appreciate.

Free Wifi is available .
