What a gem, this monumental Old Korenschuur from 1869. Just over the Belgian border, but immediately all the way to France with a church, pub, bakery and Spar around the corner. A century and a half later, the imposing building has been thoroughly restored, preserving its old soul, but with modern conveniences. There is a kitchen with stylish interior, living room with panoramic views, bedrooms with comfortable beds, spacious shower with powerful water and a covered terrace. Moreover, there has recently been a real Orangerie where it is wonderful to stay under and behind the glass, even in the early and late season. In short, an authentic yet comfortable accommodation where you can enjoy the tranquility of the countryside.
You can also be active on the many hiking trails and mountain bike trails of the French Ardennes. The house can accommodate four to six people, with two bedrooms on the first floor, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds. In addition, there is a double sofa bed in the living room, which makes it possible to eventually accommodate six people. In all fairness it must be said that it is a bit on the tight side for 6 adults. But with children a total of 6 people is fine. Especially because adventurous children can make use of the extra sleeping options in the so-called castle room.
The Oude Korenschuur is an ideal place to exercise a lot in the beautiful Ardennes nature or to just swing with a book in the hammock or to stare at the crackling fire by the wood stove. The cottage is surrounded by nature, in the Parc Naturel Régional des Ardennes. There are plenty of opportunities for excursions in the area. Interesting cities such as Reims, Sedan and Charleville-Mezieres, relaxing canoe trips on the Aisne, the Route des Eglises Fortifiées de Thiérache, adventurous treetop climbing course, hiking on one of the many routes, wandering through the woods, swimming and boating on one of the many lakes in the area. A little further on the other side is La Fermette, the Old Farmhouse. This somewhat more spacious holiday farm for six to eight people can be rented in combination so that several families can enjoy a holiday.
