What a beautiful spot!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks and found the house to be very comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped -our only negative comments would be that there are no facilities for drying washing and very few mirrors.

The caretakers were very helpful.

The setting was beautiful - a lovely lake, with no other houses on it, so a very private place. Lots of wildlife and a lovely short walk around the lake.

Cul des Sarts is the nearest village and it has good facilities - excellent small supermarket, bars, cafes, bakers, hairdresser, etc.

Chimay is well worth visiting and Rocroi is a nice place too, but this isn't a touristy area.

If you want a peaceful few days in a glorious place, this is for you!

Nous avons passé un long week-end de l'Ascension qui restera, pour toujours, gravé dans nos cœurs et dans nos mémoires.

Un cadre idyllique, une maison pleine de charme, très bien équipée et très agréable.

Nous avons profité de l'étang (pêche, balade en barque, baignade...), nous avons fait de très agréables balades dans la forêt et les alentours (la région de Couvin est très jolie et possède de nombreux atouts)

Nous voulons décerner une mention toute particulière aux personnes qui nous ont accueillis, Mr et Mme Lambert, qui nous ont reçu avec une très grande gentillesse et serviabilité.

cul des sarts

  • 4 of 5

Moin, moin

wir, das bin ich, mein Mann, meine Mama und ihre Freundin besuchten Cul des Sarts im April 2010. Die Gegend ist sehr idyllisch und ländlich. Das Haus ist mit seiner Terrasse, mit seinem Mobiliar und den eingezäunten Grundstück ein wunderschöner Ort zum Erholen. Jedoch sind um das Grundstück herum viele Wälder, die aber Privatgrundstücke sind. Jedoch bietet das Grundstück Möglichkeiten kleine Spaziergänge zu erledigen. Im Umkreis ist viel weites Land und der nächste Ort für Einkäufe ist Couvin, man benötigt hierbei immer ein Auto. Die Schlüsselübergabe geschieht über eine französische Hausverwalterin, sie ist sehr nett, aber versteht nur französisch. Es war sehr schön und erholsam....für Angler ein Traum, da alle Utensilien im Haus zu finden waren. Liebe Grüße Familie Essmann

The cottage is located 13km from Couvin, 5km from the historical city of Rocroi in France, and 20 from Chimay.

Enjoy the view on the lake from the house and stay on the large terrace above the water. You will also walk around the private lake or fish. The nature is beautiful everywhere around.

Discover the historical city of Rocroi in France with its ramparts or visit the caves in Couvin. The Couvin's beer called 'Super des Fagnes' is a must you have to taste

You can also take the little old train in Mariembourg to make a sightseeing tour in the country.

If you have time, go to the city of Chimay and visit the castle and taste the local beers and cheeses.

There are a lot of superb ways to bike (ask to go on the 'ravel' which is reserved for bikes).

Finally if you have enough time, why don't you drive to Reims in France( about 1 and half hour) and visit the Cathedral or buy some Champagne.

You'll never forget these holidays!
