Welcome to

48°North, The Originals Relais

Nature. Sharing. A unique hotel concept. Welcome to Emil Leroy Jönsson’s hotel.

“Human values, simplicity and authenticity.”

On his return from a trip to Lapland in 2012, Emil Leroy Jönsson had the slightly crazy idea of building an unusual, ecological and high-end hotel in the form of Scandinavian hyttes (cabins) in the upper reaches of the little Alsatian village of Breitenbach. “More than a hotel, I thought of a place where you live differently,” says the landscaper–town planner by trade, hotelier by passion. In this free, open and intimate space, 14 independent hyttes are scattered in nature around one house. There, guests meet and spend time together around the fire or a table in the restaurant which serves exclusively local produce. “48° North, The Originals Relais is a simple, friendly space where everyone feels good, like being at a friend’s house. Guests enjoy the pleasures of a good meal, a walk, swimming or simply doing nothing.”

ACCOMMODATION

48°North, The Originals Relais

48° North offers hyttes in place of rooms. Dotted around the natural setting, there are 14 of them with space for two to four people. Their design is inspired by traditional Scandinavian cabins. There’s no breeze blocks or concrete here but wood, stone and natural materials to enhance the strong graphic lines. Inside, it’s all about elegant wood and Nordic subtlety. Some hyttes feature a wellness area with a sauna and jacuzzi opening onto the landscape.

DINING

48°North, The Originals Relais

Welcome to the Felles Hytte, the central house. Your 100% local and organic breakfast and dinners will be served here. It's a warm and friendly place where you can sample dairy products from the village farm, bread from the local bakery, produce from the hotel vegetable garden and valley deli meats, morning and evening. Weather permitting, guests can enjoy the terrace and its views over the forest and beautiful Alsatian nature.

48° North

There are no freezers here but a very limited menu (three starters, two mains – one vegetarian – and three desserts). The chef is inspired by the seasons and the regional produce. He sets off in search of nature’s flavours in the village, garden and forest. Like Scandinavians, he fashions the raw produce from his walks to dream up simple recipes bursting with freshness and colour.
