THE ATMOSPHERE  

It is at the end of a winding private road that you will reach the top of the hill on which only the beautiful Ferme de l'Airbois is located. Surrounded by woods and meadows of the Condroz, the farm is built to gather a large family in one of its charming gîtes. The aim is to bring people together and let them appreciate the simple moments of quality together. Conviviality and authenticity will be at the rendez-vous so get out your wellies and bring your board games over. 

THE cottage

The U-shaped farmhouse is composed of three stone buildings: the private home of the owners, a first gîte for 12 people and a second gîte for 14 people. All three share the same pretty courtyard but each has its own garden or terrace. Both gîtes have been open since 2001 and have welcomed many families in search of nature and authenticity. Here, Ikea furniture is not used but on the contrary leave some space to a simple and rustic style. You will also see beautifully restored period furniture, Burgundy tiles, antique doors and authentic beams. 

THE service  

The spaces are of pleasant size and functional type. Everything is designed to accommodate large groups. It is even possible to organize seminars for groups and companies. As an option, you will be offered sheets and towels "Ferme de l'Airbois" branded. A small swimming pool is also available to all guests and is located in the garden, surrounded by deckchairs. 

THE hosts  

Since September 2019, Pierre and Aveline, a charming young couple, have taken over the family home and manage the two gîtes. You will observe the drawings painted on the tiles in the two gîtes, these were hand made by the ancestors of the family. 

Sustainability  

During our visit with Pierre, he tells us about his concern to get good local products as well as his cheese from La Voie Lactée in Profondeville. He also tries to produce as much of his own food as possible: bread, yogurt, chicken eggs, jams with forest fruits. He also let us know his interest in obtaining the green key label for his gîtes but acknowledges that the buildings are very old. He has however the ambition to install solar panels and to use as much as possible cleaning products and ecological products.

THE little extra  

The view of the meadows and woods from the upper floors of the gîtes is breathtaking. Moreover, it is possible to walk in the beautiful garden and there are many walking paths around the farm. And of course de pool for warmer days.
