Holiday home with a unique character, for 8 pers. in Messincourt (FR)

8 Persons - 4 Rooms
(Children and babies included)
Excellent Read comments 9.5

Authentic holiday home in an old farmhouse, with 4 bedrooms, garden, infrared sauna. Situated on the French-Belgian border. A very nice change of scenery and style!

Comfort and the use of natural materials are the defining characteristics of this lovely home. Whatever the season of your stay; here, you will always find an inviting atmosphere. As part of the renovation, the owner made sure to keep as much of the original building materials as possible. In some places you can still see the yellowish stones typical of this region; while some of the floorboards have been transformed into headboards for the beds.

This natural style has also been applied to the furniture; most of which was made by artisans and are unique pieces. All this gives the house a warm and inviting atmosphere where you will feel right at home.

The kitchen is functional and it shares a double-sided fireplace with the large dining room. In the living room, it is nice to sit on the sofa and relax...

Upstairs there are four individually decorated bedrooms and two modern bathrooms.

Outside, you will find one of the highlights of this 3.5 star holiday cottage: an annexe building with two parts. First, there is a relaxation area with an infrared cabin, a shower, and reading space. The second part has been transformed into a dining room with a large open fireplace where you can make barbecues. There is also a two burner electric stove and a fridge. Here, you can spend some wonderful evenings, both in winter and summer. This second building faces the large terrace. The house also boasts a big garden split into two levels and a petanque terrain.


Located on the French border, the small village of Messincourt is only 12 km from Florenville, and the famous Abbaye Notre Dame d'Orval is just 22 km away.

You can also choose to explore Bouillon and its many attractions: the Bouillon Castle, the Archeoscope Godfrey of Bouillon, and the Bouillon Animal Park.

In August, the Chassepierre International Street Arts Festival is a great entertainment option for both young and old. Finally, since you are also close to the Semois valley, you should explore the river with Semois Aventure.

Located in a quiet spot in a region full of fun activities to do, this unique and charming holiday cottage offers everything you need for a pleasant stay with family of friends.

Group holiday among friends Long-Weekend October 2021

Zeer originele inrichting, comfortabele matrassen, mogelijkheid tot wandelen met vertrek van aan het huis, open haard, gezellige ruimtes. Misschien voor sommige mensen belangrijk: geen twee deuren tussen leefruimte en slaapkamers, maar er zijn toch twee vrij rustige kamers. Infrarood cabine en buitenkeuken hebben wij niet gebruikt. Warme ontvangst met een drankje aan de bar.

Prachtig huis met alle comfort, zeer goede bedden en zalige infrarood cabine, ook de buitenkeuken is een grote troef. Wel weinig uitleg gekregen over het sorteren van afval, maar hier kan de taal iets mee te maken hebben. Misschien werken met foto’s? Zeer aangename gastvrouw en heel goed ontvangst. Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar.

Samen met onze 3 zoons en een vriendin, en oma, verbleven wij een week in de l’autre côté. Wat een prachtig huis is dit, zeg! We waren blij verrast, meteen al bij binnenkomst. Zo kunstzinnig aangekleed, en ook volledig uitgerust. Met 2 badkamers, een sauna maar vooral de buitenkeuken waren werkelijk een feestje! Gastvrouw Laurence was zeer gastvrij en bereid om voor ons klaar te staan als we haar nodig hadden….de taalbarriere was er helaas wel….maar lang leve Google translate!

We werden zeer aangenaam verwelkomt door de eigenaar, die alles in de woning uitgelegd heeft aan de hand van een rondleiding en tips gegeven heeft over uistappen en winkels in de omstreek. Het koken op de open haard met houtblokken in de bijkeuken was voor ons een grote meerwaarde, alsook de infraroodcabine en het petanqueplein. Je zit volledig in de natuur. Wij zijn echt fan van dit verblijf!
