Looking for an unusual place to spend the night in Alsace? If you’re tired of routine and want something out of the ordinary, look no further! We’ve put together a list of 7 original ideas for unusual accommodation in Alsace and nearby Lorraine to add a touch of adventure to your plans for an evening out with friends, family or loved ones! 

48° Nord – Unusual hotel and spa in the heart of nature

hotel-48-nord-breitenbach

The 48° Nord hotel in Breitenbach is a unique address in Alsace, for those looking for a quiet, beautiful and natural place to recharge their batteries, whether as lovers, friends or family. The buildings have been designed to blend into the Vosges scenery, with wooden hyttes offering superb mountain views. A superb example of the successful marriage between unusual accommodation and responsible tourism!

These hyttes are like fully-equipped mini-chalets of various sizes, with large windows so you don’t miss a thing of the scenery. In addition to a shared wellness area with a Nordic bath and sauna, some rooms offer a private sauna and/or Jacuzzi or Nordic bath.

For meals, the hotel’s restaurant uses organic and local produce. Everything is done to respect the environment and delight the taste buds! Located in the Val de Villé near Sélestat, the hotel is also the perfect base from which to explore Alsace and the Vosges, whether for a stroll in the forest or a jaunt through the villages of Alsace.

 

La Part des Anges – Swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna!

My friend Céline has an unusual accommodation where you can spend an unforgettable romantic stay. La Part des Anges bed and breakfast in Fortsfeld, northern Alsace (near Soufflenheim), , is truly unusual, featuring a huge private wellness area with swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna in the garden. It’s hard to believe when you walk in, but yes, the entire space is reserved for customers! As an added bonus, you’ll be able to access the garden in fine weather, allowing you to enjoy a true bubble of relaxation and disconnection. 

Breakfast, chosen the day before, features delicious local produce. And for dinner, you can call on the services of Philippe, owner of the B&B and wine merchant, to treat yourself to a platter of cheeses and charcuterie accompanied by a good bottle of wine! 

La Part des Anges is a victim of its own success, often selling out months in advance… Watch out for the opening of the booking calendar, and don’t hesitate to be flexible and reactive on dates to take advantage of any last-minute cancellations… 

 

Hameau des Sens – Enjoy a private Nordic bath

Le Hameau des Sens in Phalsbourg, Lorraine is the ideal spot for a romantic break, just 45 minutes from Strasbourg. Imagined by Philippe, this place is designed to disconnect and recharge. The program for this unusual stay includes wooden chalets with Nordic baths, surrounded by nature and decorated with care by local craftsmen. Here, every detail has been taken into account to ensure a pleasant stay! 

Chalets for two combine comfort and privacy. With a king-size bed, a small sitting area, a modern bathroom and even a kitchenette, everything is designed to make you feel at home. The icing on the cake? Private Nordic baths on each terrace, perfect for relaxing at the end of the day, enjoying the peacefulness of the setting.

 

Love Room Mystic House – An unusual night for lovers

Here’s an idea that combines unusual accommodation with a romantic stay. Love rooms are an increasingly popular type of accommodation, and we have them in Alsace too! In Quatzenheim, near Strasbourg, you’ll find Mystic House, the little sister of Ergersheim’s Mystic Room , which was first opened… Quite a big sister in fact, given its size: 120m2 await you for a glamorous interlude.

In addition to a lounge and kitchen area, a spa with Jacuzzi, sauna and hammam is available on the first floor. Upstairs, you’ll find a bedroom with a double bed, an adjoining XL shower and a “playroom” with toys and pleasure equipment, such as a sex swing, a tantra sofa or a St André cross… An unusual accommodation that invites you to a sensory adventure in a haven dedicated to the pleasures of the senses!

 

Nutchel – Back to nature

Nutchel Alsace, located in Plaine in the Bruche Valley, is a veritable jewel in the crown of nature for those looking for an unusual family getaway in exceptional surroundings. This “forest village” offers a unique luxury glamping experience, with around 30 wooden cabins scattered throughout the Vosges forest, offering comfort and total immersion in nature. The concept is based on a return to basics, with wood stove heating, oil lamp lighting and no wi-fi to encourage disconnection and a closer relationship with nature.

The cabins, which sleep from 2 to 6 people, combine charm and practicality. Some offer private Nordic baths or rooftop terraces, and pets are welcome in dedicated accommodations. The equipment, designed to facilitate an outdoor experience, includes gas fires and outdoor barbecues, despite the absence of hot water at the sink. Comfortable beds and a hot shower complete the picture to ensure an unusual but pleasant stay.

Nutchel doesn’t stop at accommodation: the site also offers friendly communal areas such as the “Cosy chalet” with tea and coffee, a grocery store selling local produce, as well as an outdoor swimming pool and sauna. The surroundings invite you to explore, whether on foot or by bike, with rentals available on site. 

 

Ferme Traits Anes – Sleeping in a trailer

In search of unusual accommodation in Alsace, I stayed at Ferme Traits Ânes in Mitzach, a little corner of paradise for lovers of nature and originality. This farm offers atypical accommodation: a gypsy caravan, a yurt and a bubble, all set in verdant surroundings in the heart of Alsace’s Hautes Vosges mountains.

I chose the Kuenbach caravan, which is spacious and comfortable, with a kitchenette and bathroom, and can accommodate up to four people. The farm also offers activities such as carriage and donkey rides, and services such as breakfast and dinner in a Finnish kota, outdoor hot tubs, and an above-ground pool in summer.

The farm’s location in Mitzach is ideal for hikers and nature lovers, with numerous trails and activities in the surrounding area. A great discovery! 

 

Parc de Sainte-Croix – A night among the animals

wolves-saint-cross-lorraine

The Sainte-Croix animal park in Rhodes, Lorraine, is a haven of peace for nature and animal lovers. The 120-hectare park is home to 1,500 animals representing some 100 species. Here, the emphasis is on animal welfare, with vast enclosures enabling the park’s residents – from wolves and red pandas to bears and lynxes – to live in an environment that respects their needs.

The park also offers unusual accommodation, for a unique immersive experience. Sleeping in a yurt, a tree house or facing a herd of deer or a pack of wolves is an unforgettable experience. I had the opportunity to stay in a Great Deer lodge, enjoying a breathtaking view of the animals in semi-liberty from the moment I woke up. These accommodations combine comfort and respect for the environment, with wooden structures, dry toilets and wildlife-themed decor.

However, these accommodations are very much in demand. To enjoy this exceptional experience, and in particular to sleep face to face with the wolves, it’s advisable to book well in advance, sometimes up to a year and a half in advance. A visit to the Sainte-Croix wildlife park is an adventure worth planning!
