The Old Farm

Farm Stay in French Ardennes

This typical Ardennes Old Farmhouse is located in the rolling landscape of the French Ardennes, which has been transformed into a comfortable, spacious family home with beautiful style features. Located in a green oasis in a hamlet near the village of Liart, in the middle of the French countryside with its beautiful views, you can completely relax here. The last French inhabitants of the farm play the leading role in a surprising newspaper column by the Dutch journalist Henk Hofland. Under the title ‘A second home’, he writes about the residents of the hamlet of Cornaux: ‘…the farmer’s wife with hands like Enka sponges, her mentally handicapped son and the son who died from alcohol’. A family epic in a nutshell that now hangs full length in the house. After the death of the last family member, the farm fell into disrepair until the current landlords raised it from the ashes almost 10 years ago with respect for the past, but adapted to modern times. The house can be heated all year round with a large wood stove. The kitchen is fully equipped. The dining room has a king-size dining table. On the first floor a comfortable bathroom with shower and bath, two spacious bedrooms and a large bedroom in the former hayloft.

The Old Farmhouse is located in the middle of nature, in the middle of the Parc Regional des Ardennes. With plenty of opportunities to walk on beaten roads and unbeaten paths, cycle up and down hills or swim in a small lake. On a sunny Sunday morning, browse a flea market in the area. Walking through the clay with boots on a cool autumn day. Or just relax by the wood-burning stove. Everything is possible. And all this in no time at all, less than a 250 kilometer drive from the Dutch border. But immediately in full ‘la Douce France’ , with church, pub and grocer, with the bakery of delicious baguettes and croissants. The spacious grounds of the farm house an orchard with various apple, plum and cherry varieties. A little further on the other side is La Grange, De Oude Korenschuur . This monumental building for four to six people can be rented in combination so that several families can enjoy a holiday.
