Domaine de Freux
Welcomed by an avenue of majestic trees, we discover the Freux estate. A family estate full of wild and human life. It is on the edge of the woods overlooking a clearing that the unusual lodgings are nestled. Initially set up to listen to the deer's bray in September nearly 7 years ago, they quickly became an unusual attraction for nature lovers from May to October.
The estate has 6 bubbles from different ranges and a brand new eco-chic tent “ Le soleil couchant”. A real little nest located at the foot of the trees with a view of the meadows and a pond in which you can swim. Each of them has a terrace with a view of the surrounding countryside.
As an unusual experience and out of respect for nature, the toilets are outdoor and dry. Two share bathrooms are also available for those who would like to refresh themselves.
The Freux estate also houses a warm and friendly gîte called la Héronnière and the Freux castle. The latter has 48 beds and an event room for 250 people.
Service is key for your hosts. Depending on the chosen formula you will be able to enjoy a breakfast (always included in direct booking), and an optional meal (starter-dish-serve-wine). These are delivered to you until your sphair/tent. Each of them has at its disposal a BBQ and a terrace from which it can enjoy warm evenings or observe nature in silence.
THE little extra
“Le Soleil couchant" is a real discovery: more than a sphair or a tent, this accommodation is more spacious, comfortable and aesthetic. We had never seen before a transparent tent of this standing: placed on a wooden floor, a canvas (transparent on one side) fits a spherical wooden frame. Made to be used all year round, it is heated by a wood stove in winter. From your bed, you will have the impression of waking up in the arms of a tree.
The breakfast in included if you click on the link "BOOK NOW" below (direct link to their website).
It is also possible to take a signposted walk around the property.
If you are looking to rent an apartment for several people, the gîte la Héronnière can accommodate up to 14 people and the Château de Freux up to 48 people! The castle also has an event room!
Next to St Hubert and Libramont, there is plenty to do and see
