Gîte 'Hôtel des familles' is located in the upper floors of a typical old Ardennes house from 1868 and has a very rich history. When King Leopold II reigned, the hotel (hence the name) was built especially for the many merchants who came to supply the royal hotel with all kinds of products in the woods of Houyet.
When we saw the house for sale, we were immediately sold the charm that the hotel radiated. Now, a few years and renovations later, we have provided a gîte for 7 people. Ideal for 1 to 2 families with or without children or a smaller group of friends.
What did we want? A cozy, quiet and warm home where everyone likes it. Come and tell us if we have succeeded.
