Gîte l'Opportunité invites you to discover local honey produced by Audrey and Sébastien.

You can contact us directly for products available on site.

Our honeys:


Fir honey 500g : €11.00

Forest honey 500g : €9

Audrey and Sébastien are 2 passionate beekeepers from the Bruche valley. They embarked on the adventure in 2016 and work with the “Alsatian” hive model that they make themselves using Weymouth pine from the surrounding forests.

They are lucky to have their beekeeping operation located in the region of the sub-Vosges hills where the biodiversity is still very rich and little contaminated by pesticides. Their hives therefore benefit from very diverse pollen and nectar resources in this varied environment of meadows, orchards, crops, villages... This great floral variety explains why each year, each season, their honeys are different in terms of their color, their crystallization more or less fast and their taste. This is, of course, proof of authenticity and the big difference with industrial honeys which can be blends.

Transhumance makes it possible to produce several honeys during the same season, ending in the Vosges forests (Donon massif) in order to harvest the famous “fir honey”. Once the last harvests are finished, they relocate the hives towards the plains and hills for wintering, in a more favorable climate.

The bee is an essential link in the food chain. They ensure 80% of pollination and therefore reproduction of flowering plants! Honey being such a wonderful product (just like other beehive products), let's protect the bee which is one of the most fascinating insects but unfortunately, it is also one of the most threatened...
