In the southwest of Germany amidst the beautiful Natural Park Vosges du Nord lies the "Wasgau" a pictoresque vaction area within one of Central Europes largest forests. This mountain area lies between the Rhine River valley with the oldest vineyards in Central Europe and the French Alsace and Lorraine. The southern part of Rhineland Pfalz, named after the Gallo Roman province Palatinate "Pearl" or in German Pfalz, is one of Germanies great and most adorable vacation areas. Beautiful valleys with small medieval villages and towns, castles and fortresses almost on every mountain top are vivid witnesses of a long traditional history.
In the southwestern Natural Park "Pfälzer Wald" lies at the upper end of the cozy Ludwigsthal valley the little village of Glashütte. Two mansions made out of solid handhammered rock were once the home of a glasmanufacturer family who came centuries ago from central Alpine France to make the in those days preicious and most valuable glasses well known for this area. Here in this remote area the artisans found what they needed to make the precious windowglass for cathedrals, castles and merchant homes which are fresh water, log for charcoal and the most wanted special blue quartz sands.
Today those mansions incorporate six beautiful and traditional antique furnsihed vacation homes.
