Maison Vacance Trois Epis
The former family holiday home now a convent
Beatrice showed us copies of the collection of family photos she has, which relate to Rob’s family which originated in Alsace. We also visited the cemetery where Rob’s Great, Great Grandfathers brothers family are buried, along with their children.
10/10/05 - Maison Trois Epis
We visited what was the family holiday home at Trois Epis. It is now a convent and was sold by the family back in 1950 to the Sisters of Charity (you know the flying nun variety of nuns). It is a grand maison and must have been a very elegant place in it’s time to spend a vacation.
From the house there are wonderful views back to Colmar and beyond. On a good day you can see a long way into Germany. Trois Epis is the starting point of many fine hiking trails and also is the home to a weather station.
Once our cousin Jean-Frédéric has completed his business studies and taken on a role in a Swiss Bank we have contracted him to arrange the funding to buy back the house at Trois Epis. So, anyone reading this that has a spare 2 million euro please let me
