Saulxures, Bas-Rhin
Bed & Breakfast

For lovers of French pâtisserie and vintage cars! Wake up in woody bedrooms named after mountain fruits, set off to hike, cycle or ski


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 - 5


The mountain house by the village church has been exquisitely revived, and you feel welcome the moment you enter. Fresh oak, spruce and larch abound, many features have been preserved and all is cosy and draft-free. Catherine and Thierry love to speak English and do bountiful table d’hotes at the long table, or on the terrace in summer (the gardens are sheer delight). She is a chef and pâtissier, produces for local shops in her shining new bakery and gives courses in the large spotless kitchen, he is proud possessor of a fleet of 2CVs. Tour the mountains with the roof down… return to log fires, delicious beds, drenching showers. Bliss.

I can't remember a warmer welcome than from Catherine and Thierry. Their house is beautiful, immaculate and perfectly restored - and the nearby church bells finish at 10 pm! Despite having email problems between France and England, Catherine cooked a superb meal, and I felt that my English was somewhat weaker than theirs during our wide-ranging amusing and intelligent conversation. My first stay here, but definitely not my last. Very strongly recommended.

Chris, Canterbury

Absolutely wonderful, Catherine and Thierry are lovely, dinner and breakfast great, the house is gorgeous, the Abricot room was super and quiet. Great to see Thierrys wonderful 2 CV's. Liked it so much we are going back in September.

Penny, Northampton

A warm and lovely couple hosted us for two nights in comfortable, modern rooms. Our kids loved the friendly communal breakfast and we found the location perfect for exploring parts of this countryside.

Aman, London

Absolutely delightful! We stayed with Catherine & Thierry for 1 night on the way from the UK to the Italian Lakes, and again for 1 night on the way home. Both nights were fabulous and memorable – Catherine and Thierry are such perfect hosts, we felt we’d known them for years! Both had spent a year in the UK as students and have perfect English. The house is great, a new renovation which has been done to a really a high standard with great attention to detail. The suppers and breakfasts were delicious……… and as you would expect the desserts were breathtakingly superb. Highly recommended!

A fantastic stay! The hosts were so welcoming and accommodating. Their English is perfect and they were more than happy to be 'translators' so that we were able to communicate better with other guests. They have recently completed renovating their property to a very high specification and the facilities offered are brilliant - a very comfortable bedroom and wonderful meals. I would recommend Bluets et Brimbelles as an excellent place to stay.


''We were delighted with our 1 night stay in this lovely converted house near the Vosges Mountains.Catherine is the most accomplished cook & we left distinctly wider around the girth!Thierry was so helpful helping sorting out problems we had with a motorbike & they were both so accommodating when we had to hold them up at supper time.The bedrooms were large & very comfortable & we were made to feel extremely welcome.A highly recommended place to stay in a beautiful & quiet area,easily accessible to Strasbourg & the mountains.''
