    What else ...

    We're in the Belgian Ardenne close to Durbuy, Hotton, LaRoche, Liege (70km) and Namur (60km). The house itself is just on the outskirts of a small village at the edge of a forest. The area is fantastic for walking/biking and fishing with plenty of walks and bike paths at our door. There is a bike available.
    We can drop you off at the station (4km), so you can visit as much as you can - Luxembourg is 1hr 20 mins by train as is Brussels. We will try to accommodate any special interests our helpers may have. We love to show people around - local breweries, villages, Bastogne (which is difficult to get to by public transport), or take you to the kayak start points. It is quiet round here so you really need to be a nature lover. The woods have deer and wild boar.
