Active in the Ardennes Woods
Summer or Winter, always something to do.
Many forms of wildlife can be observed in the Ardennes! Be on the lookout for roe-deer, foxes and beavers. Many species of birds visit our rural setting. Among the birds seen here: black-stork, woodpecker, king-fisher and great blue heron! .
The miles of wooded trails (nearby village of Houffalize and La Roche) can provide hours of enjoyment, and -- in late September and early October -- an amazing spectrum of fall colors.
