Situated in the historical centre of Fosses-La-Ville, the "gites" (cottages) of the "Apothecarius" (pharmacists) receive their name from their history.

Today it's two complete apartments, tastefully decorated by the owner Muriel, welcomes tourists as well as business travelers.
Inspired by the town's rich middle age history, Muriel has preserved the original style and character of this authentic town house. She has salvaged all that she was able including: doors, door handles, oak floors, stained glass, and mantelpieces. She even recovered the old flasks of the pharmacists, dusty and forgotten in the cellar.
This gite has two floors. On the second floor, there is a large space that would have been appreciated by the 'bourgeois' in the middle ages and under the beams, a fully equipped kitchen and a spacious living room decorated with beams and a wrought iron chandelier.
The bathroom, with very nice black and silver wallpaper is impressive and extremely refined. All rooms are decorated with original antiques found by the owner. Great!
