Very good Read comments 8.8

With a tranquil location at the edge of lush green woods, this charming and spacious house is perfect for relaxing holidays.

The minute you arrive you will be charmed by the character of this large house: together with its extensive private grounds, it's more like a small estate than a typical holiday cottage. The huge living room with its impressive wood-burning stove is perfect for warming up after a forest hike, and the combined kitchen/dining-room offers plenty of informal space for up to 14 persons. Also on the ground floor are two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms – with a further four bedrooms upstairs there is a total of 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms (all ensuite). There's a further shower in the top floor relaxation suite, where you'll also find a good-sized sauna - an added luxury that's just one of the special things about this top quality rental. 

As welcoming as the house is, we suspect you'll be spending a lot of time outside on the wide, elevated terrace, with its views of the garden, pond and woods. The grounds are ideal for relaxing and for playing with children – there's even a ping-pong table – but please note that the pond is not secured and children will need to be closely supervised. 

The house is located in Sivry-Rance, just 5km from the little town of Sivry itself - where you'll find a bakery, pharmacy, and small supermarket.

This part of the Ardennes is great for long walks and leisurely rambles, and there's plenty to explore both in Sivry-Rance and further afield, including the marble museum at Rance, the Aquascope nature centre at Virelles and the Eau d'Heure lakes and dam: a ride on the 'Red Crocodile' is sure to be a highlight of your holidays.

An easy 20-minute drive takes you to Chimay, the best-known Trappist brewery in Belgium. Here you can discover the rich flavours of these delicious beers, and the cheeses that complement them.   

And just 4km over the French border is the tourist resort of Val Joly where your group can experience a whole range of exciting activities, including fishing, sailing, and archery. 

With 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms and an amazing garden, this is fantastic self-catering accommodation for a group of friends, or several generations of one family

Advice from Linda Customer Service Advisor

The big plus points of this house for 14 persons are undoubtedly its wooded surroundings and garden, and the picturesque pond which stretches along the garden next to the house. The pond is unfenced and has rough edges that are steep in places: it is essential that children are not left to play unsupervised.

Please also note that the owners do not accept group bookings for student parties or hen/stag parties. 

Special conditions

It is not allowed to organise student parties, bachelor parties, drinking parties,…

Leuk weekend met vriendengroep gehad tijdens ons verblijf in dit vakantiehuis. De woning is zeer mooi en rustig gelegen met een grote tuin en vijver. Alle kamers waren proper en uitgerust met een eigen badkamer. De woning heeft ook een voldoende ruime woonkamer. Alle voorzieningen zijn aanwezig. Lekker gebarbequed en pingpong gespeeld.

We hebben een zalig verblijf gehad op een prachtige locatie. De vijver en tuin zijn magnifiek en ook alle kamers waren heel mooi en proper met elk een eigen badkamer. De bedden waren ook goed en de keuken heeft alle nodige voorzieningen. Eerdere mindere reacties mbt bedden en keuken kunt u dus negeren. Buiten zijn er 2 grote barbeques, voldoende zitplaatsen met parasol. Wij komen hier zeker terug!

Deuxième week-end en famille et toujours aussi enchantés de séjourner dans cette très agréable maison si bien située au calme avec un magnifique etang. Les plus : salles de bains privatives pour chaque chambre, essuies de bain fournis et lits faits... et la sympathie des propriétaires. Nous reviendrons une troisième fois!

Entre Sambre-et-Meuse, belgian-style canyons and large lakes

Spread out between the Provinces of Namur and Hainaut, the Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse area reveals original natural sites. The Eau d'Heure Lakes (the largest in the kingdom) offer a host of activities and are ideal for sailing. The Fondry des Chiens is much more arid as it is a real canyon, great for discovering unique vegetation.
