    Hello,

    Help us organise our House move from the Belgian Ardennes to the UK. Visit four Countries within 70 minutes!
    (If you count Belgium as one, you can be in Germany - the beautiful city of Trier - in about an hour and ten minutes after nipping into France and driving through Luxembourg.)

    Ideally located for International Exploring and Local Escapades; friendly, easy going and unintrusive English hosts offer fully self-contained accommodation in the picturesque heart of the region, free use of wifi, and a full fridge.

    We're a trio; myself, Paul, Millie my Wife, and Gustav our no-bother dog, (unless you're a cat, sadly). I've been asked to mention that the girl on the stool is Millie, not me.

    We're mostly English - the dog, who is Bi-ligual, is Belgian, we can converse in French as well.
    We've been here for the last eighteen years or so.

    The village goes by the name of Herbeumont: Google will give an insight, and tripadvisor gets closer. Google earth shows nature of the place very nicely.

    It's a small, picturesque and tidy place fifteen minutes from France, three quarters of an hour from Luxembourg and just over an hour from Germany - Trier (google for more) . Close-by, within the village, there are dozens of scenic walks, trails, cycle -paths a 12th Century Fort and magnificent views. Not too much further are the towns of Bouillon - Crusades, Castles and fine grog - a superb historic town, well worth a google for more info.
    Florenville, (google) Neufchateau and Libramont are close-ish by; not too much farther into France is the old town of Sedan. (30 minutes), (Suggest google) the Maginot line, as far as it went, and about three quarters of an hour away is Verdun. Along the road is Bastogne, centre of the Battle of The Bulge, (suggest Google - I have to make these suggestions as the inclusion of any weblink is automatically rejected by this site, sorry)

    Millie is bright, alert, happy, enthusiastic and a natural hard-working organiser; she laughs a lot, knows a lot of things without being a know-all and is a great person to be with.
    As for Paul, well, I'm affable, I've been known to get my priorities wrong in terms of work and play, but I'm no trouble. We are not evangelists in any direction - the nearest thing I get to Organic is my Donor Card.

    Gustav is a fine, well-mannered fellow needing little apart from the opportunity to catch food lobbed towards him in a gentle arc from anything between three and nine feet.
    I have to confess that not only do we eat meat, but drink beer and wine, though any visitors wouldn't have to feel obliged to do either, and our consumption is, relatively speaking, moderate.

    Accommodation is completely self-contained in the house next-door to ours, the fridge will be full of whatever you choose, the linen will be changed; heating, water and electricity are also included. Your accommodation is the left side of the house.

    Apart from free food and drink, accommodation, warmth, conviviality and a great location, not much unless you count swapping travel stories, familiarisation with the idiosyncrasies of English and the English and meeting some fine neighbours and chums.

    Visitors will be able to drop into either permanent living or a visit to the UK better prepared, I can explain about how to deal with awkward topics like how to queue and when to give way at junctions, and why that a cars horn is only sounded at very special moments.

    Guests will be left to themselves as they wish, and will have their own key and front door, TV, wifi, a full fridge and logs aplenty.

    I also have an old steel boat which always needs something.

    We've recently sold our house after twenty marvellous years in Belgium so we'd like some help getting the move organised. Work will be mostly be os a stacking, boxing and wrapping nature, so we'll need people that have a safe pair of hands and can lift the odd box. No Piano's or artillery, just household. There also an old Kotter boat which needs sprucing-up and messing about on.

    There are many, many rich and varied options available from this small hub.
    of Bouillon - Crusades, Castles and fine grog : well worth a google and many a visit. Florenville, Neufchateau and Libramont are close-ish by; not too much farther into France is the old town of Sedan. (30 minutes), the Maginot line, (40 minutes) - as far as it went, and about three quarters of an hour away is Verdun for anyone interested in one of the longest sieges in modern warfare, along the road is Bastogne, centre of the Battle of The Bulge. Google and wiki are well worth a look for these places.
