Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Vosges

Away from the main roads, in the village was located on the left side of Bulgnéville. Between the plateau above the village and down the hill, 46 meters height difference between them. The very hilly landscape allows the juxtaposition of different ecological units: orchards, vineyards, woods, meadows. Much of the land consists of marls and compact heavy promoting fruitful harvest of wheat. But so long wheat farming was predominant now the village is largely surrounded by vast prairies.

It is a "village street" comprises farms dating from the 18th century. The traditional buildings is still very visible, paving stone, stone walls, usoirs give us an example of a typical village in the region.

The village was one of the lordship of the Duke of Lorraine, he owned castles, fortified church, pond lord. To date, all that remains of the church with the chapel on the wall outside the funeral band lords of the place and the broken head of a stone statue of the 16th Century. From the castle, which was placed near the pond, nothing remains except the names of the place "the castle". The second castle, located above the village, one can guess a few foundations of the big building.

It's in the parish of Domvallier found the oldest traces of the family of the writer Victor Hugo.

Things to see and do

The church is dedicated to Saint Vallier. The old church fell into ruin was demolished. Father Jean-Claude Begel offered the land and paid for the construction of the new church of his own money. The present church was built in 1857. Unfortunately the loss of this generous donor in 1859 does not complete the church. At the request of Ms. Buffet Mirecourt, her husband, then Minister of Religious Affairs provides assistance to complete the church. Between the two wars was almost a donor to finance a boom in the stone tower. The architect county judging the weight of the arrow too heavy, refused the project.
