About the property

Le CHANT DU RUPT at the Xonrupt town very to all facilties.

New in 2015

We have a website

Le Chant du Rupt has won “1 épi” and “1 clé” (so our gîte is labelled “4 épis Gîtes de France” and “4 clés Clévacances”). By choosing a labelled accommodation, French and International customers benefit from a guarantee on the following commitment:

Warm welcome in a well maintained establishment

Faithful and complete information about the offered services

For the season 2015, we decided to offer a welcome gift

You can choose between:

1 bowling game per person in the sports complex of Gérardmer (children from size 26)

1 gift basket (local products from the Vosges)

1 pool pass per person in the sports complex of Gérardmer (all ages)

1 h pedalo pass per person on the Lac de Xonrupt

And to make your stay even more pleasant, we provide you with 5 adult bikes for free

Another novelty: for your convenience, a part of the basement is at your disposal. You will find an area reserved to documentation on the region as well as a heated locked room to safely store your ski gear, your bikes, your motorbikes, your fishing gear, etc.

Le Chant du Rupt is a lovely warm house that has been renovated in 2013 in the centre of Xonrupt and 5 minutes from Gérardmer.

It is located in a quiet and easily accessible location. You are 2 minutes on foot from shops (bakery, pork butcher/caterer, post office and tobacconist/newsagent), close to the Lac de Longemer (15 minutes on foot) and halfway between the ski slopes of La Mauselaine in Gérardmer and La Bresse Hohneck (10 minutes by car) at the foot of the Col de la Schlucht.

Le Chant du Rupt welcomes you in a warm and contemporary decor to discover through the seasons the different activities that the Vosges Mountains have to offer.

You will fully enjoy the South-exposed terrace whether to lunch (gas barbecue and plancha) or to relax yourself, rest or simply unwind.

In winter, you can practice snow sports with the Nordic and Alpine family ski resorts

Many hiking paths lead to the lakes and crests of the mountain, routes where you can taste the local “terroir” products in one of the many farmhouse inns.

There are folkloric and cultural events such as the Jonquil Festival of the Fantasy Film Festival in Gérardmer.

Many sport events both in summer and winter:

The Trace Vosgienne Ski de Fond in February

The Trail de la Vallée des Lacs in June

The X-Terra in Xonrupt in July

The Trace Vosgienne VTT in August

The Triathlon de Gérardmer in September

The Vallée des 3 Lacs offers an exceptional setting with its nature diversity well appreciated by hikers and mountain bikers.

From the other side of Col de la Schlucht, the Alsatian slope of the mountain offers many cultural and gourmet routes from Munster to Colmar while crossing the Wine Route.

Close to Gérardmer and La Bresse, Le Chant du Rupt is a charming fully fenced detached house located in the centre of Xonrupt and close to all amenities.

Everything has been designed for your convenience: 130 m² surface adapted in order to accommodate up to 10 persons in family or between friends.

Ideally located in the village centre of Xonrupt, Le Chant du Rupt is 10 minutes from the Lac de Longemer where you can go on foot or by bike with young children (cycle path).

The detached house is on the road of the resort of La Bresse Hohneck. You can thus choose to reach the ski slopes without crossing the major roads which can be pleasant during peak period.

Renovated in 2013, this 4-star furnished tourist accommodation with 4 clés Clévacances and recently 4 épis Gîtes de France offer all modern conveniences and quality services to guarantee a successful stay.

Laurence F purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Laurence F chose Xonrupt-Longemer

In love with the Vosges Mountains, we decided to invest in this sublime region in order to share at best our enthusiasm for the Hautes-Vosges.

What makes this cottage unique

This house is located in the centre of Xonrupt, close to all amenities, easily accessible (even when there is snow). The rue du Hohneck is part of the place called “Graingotte” where calm and conviviality reign.

You will enjoy the South-exposed 50 m² terrace with views of the bell tower and the ski slopes of Le Poli. It is equipped with barbecue/plancha to give you the opportunity to spend unforgettable moments in family or with friends.

Fully renovated in 2013, Le Chant du Rupt will offer you great comfort to recharge your batteries: rest, calm and tranquillity are guaranteed.

Access to the Lac de Longemer is really easy on foot via secondary paths along the Vologne River. It is ideal and safe to have a stroll with young children on foot or by bike or for teenagers (who long for their independence) who want to spend days at the lake with friends.

Great property. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The location is beautiful and the surrounding forests and lakes are all very accessible. The property is beautifully maintained and worked well for us - ten people, including three young children and a baby.

The only negative for us was the requirement that we pay €800 in cash upon arrival as a security deposit. That in itself would have been OK except for the fact that we could not pay in £s and the owner would only reimburse us by bank transfer, and that would take place some time after we left to return home. This meant that we lost out in exchange rates both times and in international bank transfer rates at the end.

Would we go back again? Yes. It is a lovely property in a great location. Hopefully, now that she knows us, in future a different arrangement can be made concerning the security deposit.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review and it is with pleasure that we will receive you again. Concerning the deposit, we only apply the French law which authorizes us to return the deposit within 10 days after the departure of the tenant. It is true that you lose money because of the exchange, but it is the same for us when we transfer the bond back to you; Change + fees for non-EU bank. We have sought all possible solutions in order to avoid these costs for you, as long as for us, but there is not ....

an excellent new year!

  • 4 of 5

This new year we had a great stayover together with our friends at this chalet! We were six adults and four children. This place is very neat, proper and very cosy. It's position in a quiet and lovely village with a few nice little shops (traiteur/bakery/..) and at only 4 km of Gerardmer. We absolutely adored the front terrace and also the layout of the house was very nice. Especially the master bedroom is adorable with the best bed I've every slept in. Ten is however the limit of number of people but still I would recommend a stayover here. The owners are the most lovely people and we'd like to thank them for the great and easy arrangement of our stayover, they are superb! We definitely recommend this place to other people, you won't regret it.
