Our cottage in Magoster, Belgium Ardennes

A cottage in the Belgium Ardennes

After having published we have now published an English 'daughter' of it. We have already had several English visitors in our cottage and so we know that the region Ardennes is rather popular for them for spending their holidaytime.

Long ago, the Ardennes had visitors too, but they were unwelcome. Grace to thousands of British (and Amirican) soldiers they had to abondon the area. And even now, so many years later, we see English people (descendents?) visiting the area were it all happened and where their grandfather had fought.

Our cottage is situated in Magoster, part of the community of Rendeux. It is very well located regarding to the actions of the World War II 'Battle of the Bulge'. It is also not far from the British War Cemetry in Hotton. For them who have a special interest in World War II we made a special page.

Vacation home on a hill not far from Durbuy and La Roche-en-Ardenne...

vacation home ardennes durbuy
Our vacation home in Magoster in the Belgium Ardennes was originally called "Wijd Weg" which means something as "great view". Standing on the balcony you understand why: you can look miles away seeing grasslands, wood and hills. Downhill you can see a small village.
This cottage is surrounded by a large garden, offering two terraces and some toys for children. The region has many World War II-memorials never forgetting what happened long ago.

   please make your choice...
