About this listing
In the middle of nature you will find our lovely chalet. If you feel need to escape this is the right place to relax and enjoy silence
Our recently renovated chalet is located in the beautiful natural reserved area Domaine du Bonsoy close to Dinant and the French border. Here you will find little chalets, clustered in several areas in the woods. Our chalet is located in a quiet and nice setting. At the first floor you will find the dorm room with a comfortable double bed, child bed and baby bed. At the ground floor there is a comfortable two person´s sleepingcouch. Both beds are equiped with twopersons duvets.
The kitchen is very modern and equiped with dishwasher and microwave.
The sunny terrace which is located at the south side has garden furniture and Weber bbq. The car can be parked close to the chalet. For the chilly nights you can heat up the fireplace or the heating. There is also a movies collection of more than 100 titels available. For the beer lovers we have a special magnum bottle collection of trappist beers available( Westmalle, La Chouffe, Duvel.......). Hiking and biking maps are also present. If you have specific questions about the area you can ask me.
The surroundings are beautiful and here you can really experience silence and the four seasons.
From the chalet you can hike or mountainbike to the famous climbing rocks of Freyr or Dinant through the forests without seeing one single car.
The foodlovers will be treated to culinary delights from the Ardennes!
Weekends are always from Friday till Monday. Minimum stay tree nights! During the summer months July and August it's only possible to book one week as a minimum stay from Saturday till Saturday
Het chaletje svp verlaten in dezelfde staat als u het aangetroffen heeft. Afval en lege flessen kunt u deponeren in de vuilcontainers op het domein. Electriciteit afsluiten, deuren van de koelkast en vaatwasser openen en open haard legen. Ten slotte alle deuren en ramen afsluiten. Huisdieren meenemen gaat altijd in overleg.
Séjour très agréable en pleine nature dans les Ardennes belges !
En revanche, nous pensions au vu des photos se retrouver seuls dans la nature et en fait c'est un domaine de plus de 200 maisons. Heureusement, calme et détente règnent;)
the chalet was pleasant but it was not isolated as it looks like on the photo. Neighbourgh houses are quite close and this part of the valley is in fact a bungolow park. No internet available in the house but only at the reception. Otherwise we had a good time there and Marco is nice and careful.
This is a really nice little place to stay, conveniently located for walking and rafting in the Ardennes. You're 30 mins by car from Dinant, 10 mins from Givet in France, and only 90 mins from Luxembourg, if you fancy a trip.
The chalet has a lovely big balcony with table, four loungers and a barbecue. The inside is well equipped, comfortable and warm. There is also plenty of information in the house about things to do nearby. Perfect base for a week in southern Belgium. Marco is a great host, always replying to texts quickly.
Een erg leuk huisje op een mooie rustige plek. Alle benodigdheden zijn aanwezig. De communicatie met Marco verliep erg goed; hij reageert snel en is zeer behulpzaam. Al met al een echte aanrader!
Amazing chalet in a stunning setting. Marco was very helpful and welcoming. He provided detailed instructions of how to find the chalet - make sure you read these when sent by email! The whole experience was everything we hoped it would be. Great base for day trips to numerous Ardennes locations. Very quiet and comfortable. Great DVD collection - Marco has great taste!
We zijn net terug van een heerlijke korte vakantie in het fijne chalet van Marco. Het chalet is knus en gezellig. Alle faciliteiten (ook voor onze baby) zijn aanwezig en alles is schoon. Vanwege het weer hebben we helaas niet veel gebruik kunnen maken van het terras, maar de open haard en filmcollectie maakten dit ruimschoots goed.
Marco geeft goede informatie en beantwoordt vragen zeer snel en duidelijk. Bij aankomst in het huisje lukte het ons niet goed om de stroom werkend te krijgen. Marco was telefonisch direct bereikbaar en hielp ons goed.
We had a very pleasant stay in Marco's chalet.
The chalet is located in a very peaceful domain in the woods. It is quite cosy.
You'll find all the equipment you need. We don't have children but I was surprised to discover some equipments for babies. There's also a lot of DVD if you want to watch a movie.
Marco is very friendly and available. He answered to all our questions, by email or sms. While being attentive to us with 'welcome' and 'bye' messages, he also let us enjoy our stay and feel at home. The perfect blend. ;-)
We only were disappointed by the fact that there was no Internet connection available in the chalet. You have to go at the domain reception in order to get your daily dose of Internet. It's not a very long walk but you have to leave the confortable sofa. Remark: 4G is available in the chalet.
Based on Marco's suggestions, we tried the restaurant 'Le Freyr'.
The restaurant is very nice and quiet. Perfect for a romantic evening. We had a very warm welcome and the food was very good. But don't take the 'Dame blanche'... it doesn't represent the quality of the cooking.
The region of Dinant is very beautiful.
If you like walking, we had a very nice ramble through the woods and hills and along a stream and the Meuse starting from Falmignoul. The landscape is very peaceful and bucolic.
Conclusion: nice place, nice guy, very pleasant stay. The full package. ;-)
About the Host, Marco
Life is about experiencing nature, travelling, healthy food, Belgian beers and movies...... For us as a family with two little kids it's always great to be in the chalet during the weekends and experience the outdoor feeling just 1.5 hours from our house in Antwerp. For us it's great to have you as guests so you can experience it yourself.
