The southern half of Belgium is officially known as Wallonia – and it’s full of architecture and landscapes that are every bit as whimsical as the name suggests, with atmospheric forests that feel magical, changing vividly with the seasons. Expect, too, horizons of undulating hills, peatlands and winding rivers. Whether you’re into hiking or golf, castle architecture or sensuous spa treatments, a few nights at one of these special check-ins will do the trick. Best of all, they’re bookable easily via Culture Trip.
Welcome to this comfortable country retreat in the middle of the Ardennes, half an hour’s drive from La Roche-en-Ardenne Castle. On offer is a variety of rooms with a combination of soothing soft green walls and bird-motif cushions, pink and green patchwork bedheads topped with a cheeky gnome, or wood themed with a cut-log feature wall and shaggy cream sheepskin cushions. This is a great place for a family holiday – there are rooms that comfortably sleep four. Spend your time hiking in the bosky surroundings before returning for a blissful session of steam, pool strokes and sauna – the on-site wellness facilities are impressive.
