vie la vie

For the safety of our guests and ourselves, we will follow the French Covid19 hygiene rules for B&B – Hotel. Because we serve breakfast and dinner both in the shared living room and in the dining room, we can guarantee the 1.5 meter distance. And of course also outside in good weather. If desired, breakfast can also be served in the room.

Vie la Vie is located in Bains-les-Bains (20 km south of Epinal and an hours’ drive from Nancy) in a wooded surrounding in the southern part of the Vosges. The chambres d’hotes (bed and breakfast) is situated in a large property which was used in the seventies as a hotel.

The newly designed and furnished rooms have a private bathroom and comfortable, spacious beds (2.10m length). Enjoy our home-made breakfast or three-course dinner cooked by Miranda making as much use as possible of vegetables and fruits from our own garden, self-made bread and local products..

The chambres d’hotes is located on the outskirts of the village of Bains-les-Bains from which you can walk straight into the forest. Bains-les-Bains is a small town with its own Hot Spring and spa. It has numerous walking and cycling routes in the vicinity. Places like Epinal, Remiremont and Plombières-les -Bains are within a half an hour’s drive. Walking, cycling, as well as motorcycling, horseriding, golf and even skiing (ski resorts as Gérardmer and La Bresse are only 50 kilometers away) are all possible in the area.

Room with extra large bed (bed & breakfast Vie la Vie)


Vie la Vie has 5 double rooms, each with its own unique character. All rooms have a private bathroom and new spacious (2.10m length) box-spring beds. Two rooms have their own balcony.

  • 5 star review  Sehr freundliche Gastgeber, beste Gelegenheit im Ort etwas zu essen (es gibt kaum andere Möglichkeiten im Ort). Sind auf einer Radtour hier untergekommen. Und bei wolkenfreiem Himmel kann man im Garten den Sternenhimmel bestaunen. Sehr zu empfehlen. 👍

  • 5 star review  Very friendly hosts, best opportunity to eat something in town (there are hardly any other options in town). We stayed here on a bike tour. And when the sky is clear you can marvel at the starry sky in the garden. We recommend. 👍

  • 5 star review  On our way back from Italy we slept for 2 nights in the wonderful beds of these completely renovated chambres d'hotes. The hospitality of Roy and Miranda top it off. Tip: make sure to use the tables d’hotes! We will come back for sure!

  • 4 star review  We booked two nights with Roy and Miranda on August 26 and 27. This was a nice stopover towards our final destination in Italy. What a great stay this has been. The rooms are neatly decorated. We were given a tour by Roy through the entire building and so we were able to observe how the top floor will look like in the future. We enjoyed Miranda's hospitality and cooking skills. Delicious culinary food, highly recommended. Looking for a restaurant in the area is really not necessary! Keep it up!

  • 5 star review  We had a lovely stay at VielaVie. Roy and Miranda are great hosts! We had a really nice room for a family of four, with plenty of space and comfortable beds. Both dinner and breakfast were superb. Especially recommended for cyclists and hikers! The surroundings are beautiful and different hiking routes start directly at VielaVie.
