My spouse and I just returned from a 7-day stay at Club Med Vittel Ermitage. Since we couldn't plan long overseas holidays this year, we were just looking for a romantic and quite place somewhere in France in order to relax and share our mutual passion for golf. Well fellows, all I can say is that we got more than we bargained for ! Club Med Vittel Ermitage is outstanding on all respects:
- clean, spacious, comfortable rooms (we booked a deluxe room during our stay),
- the hotel itself is a little gem located in the heart of a 97,000 m2 property entirely dedicated to golf.
- you can enjoy an immediate access to two 18-hole golf courses (a fee is required for both) + an extra 9-hole golf course (free of charge) + a humongous driving range (with something close to 240 spots) and many different areas to practice your wedging game.
- the staff is incredibly professional and nice. Really. These guys know their job and do it right.
- personally, we also enjoyed the fact that the clientele was very international. We had the chance to meet the nicest people from all over Europe, which really added to the quality of our stay.
So to all golf lovers out there, this is just THE place you want to hang out if you're looking to relax and golf in a gorgeous, quiet, classy and cosy location.
We know we loved it and will definitely go back whenever we can.
-- In the sake of fairness, you should be advised that Ermitage is a "grown-up" Club Med so you won't find many families with babies or kids out there. Most of them stay at the other Vittel Club Med called Vittel Le Parc, which is more a "family" club and has all necessary amenities and personnel to welcome and entertain families with young kids. Le Parc is a 10 mins walk from the Ermitage and they both share certain services (spa, swimming pool, gym, etc.). Le Parc is also very nice but not as quiet and charming as Ermitage in our opinion. Just putting it out there.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Club Med Village of Vittel Ermitage is set in a protected area of the famous thermal resort's estate in the Vosges mountain range. Not far from the spring of pure water, the Art Deco-style hotel instills a certain elegance into the tranquility of the location. Following a walk through the woods and before a massage break, golf enthusiasts will find several courses right on the hotel's doorstep, where they will be able to exercise their swings amid the 100-year-old trees. ... more less
