Walscheid is classified as a mountain area.
The village is nestled at the bottom of the Bièvre valley and is surrounded by wooded hills from which many rocks stand out. In the heart of a preserved nature, more than 200 km of hiking and biking trails are waiting for you, as well as several places to practice climbing.
Goats, sheep, cows and horses as well as deer and hinds are the "four-legged mowers" of this green setting.
Our village is a paradise for hikers and nature lovers.
I invite you to discover it.
You will find yourself in a green setting between meadow and forest, the place is quiet and pleasant.
The road is not very busy because we are located in a dead end at the bottom of a valley.
Our unusual accommodation is a small "chalet style" caravan built entirely by us, can accommodate up to 4 people from April to November.
You will find a double bed, 2 bunk beds (plaids, pillows), a dining area, a kitchenette (dishes etc...) and dry toilets. Installed in our orchard near our house, our accommodation has everything to seduce.
Made of wood, it is perfect on the edge of the forest.
