The House

It consists of two village houses from different periods: "la Cuverie", an old winegrower's house from the 18th century, next to a worker's house from the post-war reconstruction (1920's).

Here, nature is omnipresent. You can choose the view from your room according to your sensibility and the seasons: the vineyards and orchards of Lorraine, the forest and the hillside garden are all little corners of nature where it is good to recharge your batteries.

The usoir

In front of the house: the "usoir".

Characteristic of traditional Lorraine houses, the usoir is a strip of land that links the houses to the road.

This space partially fulfils the functions of the courtyard in other house models. Set back approximately 3 to 7 metres from the road, the usoir is a space free of private use but open to the road and generally in public ownership.

We wanted to enhance the La Bottée usoir. We have left this strip of land in grass while integrating pathways up to the "perron". Thus, one can "couarail" (chat) on the bench next to the façade!

We live in "la Cuverie" at n° 1, place de Verdun. To access "La Bottée", you have an independent entrance: the door on the right.

The living room

Once you have passed the doorway, you will discover the living room with a view of the wash house and its square with its hundred-year-old lime trees:

  • a large table for gourmet breakfasts
  • a sitting area in front of the wood-burning stove installed in the old Lorraine fireplace to relax, chat, read
  • a large sideboard filled with games, books on nature, heritage and history to enable you to discover all the secrets of our region, and a small kitchen to prepare a tea, coffee, herbal tea or a cold drink. This real living space is entirely dedicated to you!

The terrace

Our stone terrace, covered, will allow you to enjoy your breakfast outside in the summer

The garden

Open your eyes wide to contemplate the landscapes of the Côtes, the forests, the vineyards, the orchards, our fruit trees, the bell tower of the village and at nightfall, admire the starry sky!

Enjoy the calm of the place , observe and listen to the countryside, smell the perfumes of the flowers, the grass, the moss, the smell of the seasons...

Taste and savour our fruits (mirabelle plums, apples, cherries, redcurrants, blackcurrants, blackcurrants, medlars, apricots, raspberries, strawberries)...

Relax in the shade of the big trees or have fun on our bowls pitch.
