A holiday home in the Belgian Ardennes

In the Ardennes atraveo has more than 1,800 holiday apartments and houses on offer. The Ardennes are a densely wooded mountain range in the south eastern part of Belgium that is particularly shaped by untouched nature, extensive range of flora and fauna as well deeply cut in rivers and streams. The highest mountain that is connected with the Eifel is Botrange with 691 metres and is a popular day trip. Vacationers appreciate the Ardennes for its lovely landscape as well as the tranquil and secluded location of this region. Many holiday homes you can find with atraveo in the Ardennes have an especially idyllic location such as for example in the midst of a small village or far away at the edge of the forest with a large property where kids will have a lot of fun. Often the houses will provide enough room for several people so that it is possible to travel with a larger group or several families. In many cases it is also possible to take pets so that your dog will also be able to enjoy a nice holiday in the Ardennes and let off some steam whilst on a walk.

Do you want to know what else you can do beyond the lovely nature of the Ardennes and enjoyment of the great holiday apartments and houses?

Sporting highlight I: The “Ardennes rollercoaster”

Even though most of the time the Ardennes landscape is a tranquil setting the region is also home of two major international top class sporting events: Motor sport and cycling are of great importance here and have a long tradition. At the edge of the High Fens near Spa you are able to find the “Ardennes Rollercoaster” which is the famous racecourse Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. Since 1925 it is the home and venue of the Belgian Grand Prix which is regarded globally as one of the most challenging race tracks. In past times the course of 14 kilometres went through public country roads between the towns of Francorchamps, Malmedy and Stavelot. Very high speeds and a lack of safety facilities lead in the 1970s to the course being cut back to 7 kilometres and a conversion to a permanent race course was implemented. With its height difference of more than 100 metres and many fasts bends such as the famous Eau Rouge or Blanchimont where great centrifugal forces emerge it still is quite an action packed race course.

Sporting highlight II: The oldest cycling race in the world

The one day cycling race Liege-Bastogne-Liege is known as one of the classics in the cycling world and takes you on a 250 kilometre course with several ascends across the Ardennes from Liege over High Fens to the town of Bastogne and then from there back to the starting point. The race attracts the top cycling elite and has been staged since 1892 making it the oldest running cycling race of the world. Record winner is the legendary Belgian cycling pro Eddy Merckx who was able to win the race five times. Why not combine your vacation in the Ardennes with attending the cycling race or motor sport event at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. Liege-Bastogne-Liege takes place each year in April and the Belgian Formula 1 Grand Prix is usually staged at the beginning of September. A holiday apartment next to the race course provides for a practical accommodation. Further interesting events that take place at the Circuit Spa-Franchorchamps are the 6 hour race and 24 hour race for sports cars.

Sporting highlight III: Enjoy some activity

The mountainous landscape of the Ardennes offers loads of opportunities to choose to be more active on vacation. Hikers will find this place very much to their liking as there are a range of hiking routes with different lengths. A holiday house is the ideal starting point in order to explore the beautiful Ardennes landscape on a couple of tours outside in the fresh air. Cyclists and particularly mountain bikers will be captivated by the different routes that offer both lovely and challenging rides. For climbers there are lots of rock faces that are situated in the deeply cut in river valleys. The seas and reservoirs of the Ardennes additionally give guests the chance to indulge in a number of water sports such as canoeing and kayaking.

Further destinations in Belgium and beyond

You should really also visit towns on the edge of the Ardennes such as Liege, Namur, Verviers and Charleroi. A further destination is the capital Brussels that is just over an hour away by car from the Ardennes. Also Genk, Hasselt and Leuwen are interesting Belgian towns in close proximity. Beyond the borders towns such as Aachen, Maastricht, Trier or Luxembourg are not far away. As a cross-border mountain range the Ardennes are continued on further in Germany, France and Luxembourg. Behind the German border the mountain range seamlessly passes on over to the Eifel that is only separated from the same mountain range Hunsrück by the Mosel. Further in southern direction the Vogese follow on that many belong to France. The most part of the French departements Ardennes in the region Champagne-Ardenne comprises of the foothills. In Luxembourg nearly a third of the entire national territory is made up of Ardennes foothills and is known under the name Ösling.
