Solo Foxer #16

Unlike the formidable Friday foxers, the Monday kind are designed with lone truth sleuths in mind. Roman, my Chief Foxer Setter, assures me the following brainteaser can be solved single-handedly. Crow all you like in the comments section, but please don’t spoil the puzzle for others by sharing solutions or dropping hints.

“Where am I?”

Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View, Wikipedia, MAPfrappe and other tools, work out my location. The answer will appear under next Monday’s solo foxer.

Looking about I can see three cars (one red, one yellow, and one silver), no buildings, and countless trees. I’m 50 metres from a reservoir that hides in its depths the remains of a village. I’m a two minute drive from a structure that wouldn’t look out of place in a D&D scenario. The country you’re seeking has two official languages, two living Nobel laureates, and a yellow national flower. A century ago it had no capital. I share longitude with a populated island called ****x. Roughly nine miles away, the nearest railway line is 4.5 miles long and isn’t part of the national network. The nearest city lies to the north and has a population of under 3500. If you can see a tandem you’re probably in the right place. I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
