Moyenmoutier lies in the Rabodeau valley between St. Dié des Vosges and Senones in the Vosges mountains and was named after the Abbey that was founded in 671. The house itself is just 2 minutes walk to the river rabodeau and the Abbey and a lovely selection of shops and cafes and two fabulous boulangeries where you can buy your daily croissants. If you are looking for a small rental property for two or three people, Aveline is perfect for you. The house has been tastefully decorated and a new kitchen and shower room have been installed, while the original doors and sandstone staircase have been preserved. Although it is a small house, the one bedroom is a good size and the lounge has a sofa bed for an extra person if needed. A corner kitchen is at one end of the lounge which is well equipped and there is a 61cm flat screen TV and DVD player on one wall. Private off road parking comes with the house.
We bought Aveline in 2013 and renovated it completely with new wiring, electrics, plumbing,walls, ceilings and insulation. Now we rent out it e all the year round to holiday makers from all over the world and have met some amazing people who all seem to love what we have done to our home. We will be happy to welcome you here for your holiday!

Malcolm and Jasmine Walker purchased this house in 2013
We bought this little house in the lovely historic village of Moyenmoutier in 2013 because we fell in love the town with its Abbaye and the history of WW1. We discovered quite by chance the remaining German and French fortifications from WW1 on the hill behind the town during one of our weekly walks exploring the area. We have restored Aveline into a cosy rental property for 2 to 3 people, putting in good insolation, re wiring and re plumbing so that other people can come and enjoy the town too.
We have found that a lot of couples prefer a small rental property rather than a large one! Aveline is in a quiet road with friendly neighbours plus it is close to the village and you are sure to enjoy the wonderful cakes and fresh breads from our two boulangeries. There are the walks round the Abbey and the river or the hill behind the house and through the forest to the Haute Pierre is a must!
A great base to explore the Vosges but close to everything you need.
We had a very good fortnight in this delightfully modernised, comfortable, property. It loses a star only because for a couple well over 70 the downstairs lavatory was a bit of a bind in the middle of the night. The house is exactly as advertised & for us, reluctant to travel to eat, the bang up to date oven & hob were a bonus. Jasmine welcomed us & brought a change of linen on the second Saturday. The tourist information provided included a map of the excellent Club Vosgesien waymarked walks AND the IGN 1:25,000 map as back up. Moyenmoutier is an attractive small town with the facilities described, plus the facility to buy the daily paper at the boulangeries, minus the butcher, closed on our stay - but the one in Senones is very good. We came for a restful, reading, walking holiday [and got it] so didn't miss WIFI . We can wholeheartedly recommend Aveline with only the one reservarion [for old folk] mentioned.
Jasmine and Malcolm met us at the property to give us the keys and to show us around and left us a phone number in case of problems. (not needed in fact). The house was clean and comfortable and situated in the charming village of Moyenmoutier which had all the shops and bars that one could wish for. The neighbours and local people that we met were unfailingly friendly. It was also ideally situated for exploring this lovely part of France.The cities of Nancy, Strasbourg (take the park and ride trams) and Mulhouse (if cars and trains interest you don't miss the two museums here) and the historic and picturesque town of Colmar are a fairly easy drive away. More locally there are some pretty walks among the wooded hills and a fifteen minute drive brings you to a large lake with water sports and a clean beach to swim from.
We would recommend this property without hesitation.
We had a lovely stay at Aveline. House very comfortable with all facilities we needed. We particularly enjoyed the shower!. Moyenmoutier is a beautiful village although, if you are looking for night life, it's won't be the place for you. Short stroll to a beautiful bakery each morning for breakfast and every one was so friendly. We climbed to top of La Haute Pierre at the back of the village (site of an 11th century castle now ruined). Wow!! the views were breathtaking. Loads to explore - great cycle routes (flat in the valleys and also mountain biking) all colour coded routes according to difficulty. We picked green - the easiest! Trips to Strasbourg (beautiful), Colmar (also beautiful) and into Germany were also worth the visit although fairly long drives. Lack of things to do in the evening didn't bother us at all as we were ready for bed early due to our action packed days!! Thanks Jasmine and Malcolm for a memorable holiday. Plus the complimentary bottle of Alsace Riesling was wonderful - we are converts. Vicki and Richard
The house is very cosy and well equipped, is situated in a quiet area of the village. From where there are interesting walks or bike rides. the village is ideally situated for visiting historic towns like Strasbourg and Colmar.
L'Aveline is perfect for two people. The house is clean and well-equipped and centrally located in the village. The view from the kitchen-dining room-lounge window is lovely. This area of France is 'off the beaten track' but well worth a visit. There are many good walks nearby. The village is also an excellent base for exploring the Vosges, the rest of Lorraine, and Alsace.
The property was clean and well appointed. The owners met us at the property and explained the facilities and gave us information about the area. There was also a stack of leaflets about the area. There are a couple of bread shops, two takeaways in walking distance and a supermarket.
