What if you slept in an old stable? If you are a rider, I know that this already makes you dream. For the others, don’t go away, you should also be seduced! The guest house of the Mont is really a charming and warm place. The owners of these gîtes and guest rooms, Agnès and Joseph, will welcome you with open arms in their house and stable located in Morschwiller, a townshipwest of Haguenau.
The guest house of the Mont is located on the heights of the village, in a green and peaceful setting. It is organized in three parts: the house of the owners, in which there is also a guest room, the old stable, in which there are two cottages, and finally the current stable, located at the back, which still hosts horses.
My lodging at the Mont’s stable
I slept in one of the lodgings, “L’écurie”, fitted out in old boxes. For the horse lover that I am, it was a real pleasure! The decoration is really nice and reminds the past of the place via some small winks. It’s not entirely equestrian themed either and will appeal to non-riders too, no worries there! The gîtes are comfortable and very well equipped.
Breakfast at the Maison d’hôtes du Mont
The breakfast offered at the Maison d’hôtes du Mont is composed of local and seasonal products found at local producers (and there is plenty of choice in the region!) as well as delicious little things prepared by Agnès. It is really excellent, both hearty and tasty! Good news for all food lovers, you can also enjoy it if you book a stay in a B&B, not only in a B&B!
Ecurie du Mont
As I said, there is a working stable behind the gîtes. It is therefore possible to book equestrian activities such as a carriage ride, for example. Please note that this is not a classic equestrian center and it is therefore not possible to book a horseback ride for example. You can stay with your horse, in the meadow or in a box, during your stay.
Morschwiller is a small community located west of Haguenau and south of Pfaffenhofen, in the northern part of Alsace. It’s not the most touristic place in Alsace, but there are plenty of things to do! This will appeal to people who have already visited the must-sees and want to discover more ofAlsace off the beaten track, or to those who want to escape the madness of the Wine Route anyway 😉
It is also an ideal place for riders wishing to come with their horses (there are plenty of hikes to do around the stable of the Mont), but also hikers and cyclotourists. Here are the ideas for activities and tours.
- Sleeping in old, nicely furnished cubicles
- Comfortable and warm place
- Exceptional breakfast
- Possibility to come with your horse
