The famous Nocturne des Coteaux is back in Liege !

The most beautiful way of discovering Liege by night: come on next Saturday, 4th October. Every year, the historic center of the city and the hillside are illuminated, giving a magic and festive atmosphere. Enjoy a walk through the narrow streets, surrounded by more than 20000 candles and lots of free music shows and street theater.

Fancy a nice weekend in Liège ? Book fast our Studio Jazz, It’s like a liege hotel in the heart of this event !


Our new little favorite: the Pierreuse house !

Pierreuse (6)

Located in Liege’s historic district, the Pierreuse house will charm you by its authenticity and its comfort. With its 3 floors and 80 sqm, it is composed of a spacious living room opened on a kitchen, a laundry area, a double bedroom, a bathroom and a big terrace on the last floor for pleasant moments of relaxation ! It’s different from liege hotel. There is everything you need for a memorable stay in Liege : ideally located, you will have the choice between going downtown, discovering the historic city or having a walk along the Coteaux, in the hills of Liege, with more than 60 monuments and 5 classified sites !



BOARDING: THREE “LITTLE” NEW SITES IN LIÈGE!

TroisPetitsNouveaux

Aaaah, Liège…its hills, its Sunday market in la Batte, its cathedral with the crazy bells (here) and… its new apartments!

We are proud to offer you three Liège beauties, liege accommodation, which have just arrived on the books of Ze Agency. The properties enjoy a great location and an exceptional setting and are perfect for all those who love space and light: the aptly named White Loft, the spacious duplex Mativa and the historic Gîte Mont Saint-Martin!


WE LOVE HIM: DOMINIQUE HOUCMANT (GOLDO)

Goldo

Even the shyest and less photogenic people don’t shy away from his lens, on the contrary: Goldo blends into the crowd and settles a kindly gaze on Liège, making everybody look glamour and “mamé”.
His photo albums, which are published during cultural events in Liège, are like family photo albums. The family spirit and the Liège spirit can be seen in each face that lights up, in each lingering exchange and in each small moment, which, under Goldo’s watchful gaze, turns into a big one.
And, as a picture is worth a thousand words, why not visit his Facebook page or his blog. He posts daily with a view from his balcony: an original way to find out about the weather and the daily mood in the city!

CULTURE : BELGIAN BEER WEEKEND

BBFNL

From Friday 5 to Sunday 7 September, it’s the BELGIAN BEER WEEKEND at the Grand Place in Brussels!

This concept allows you to make your own drinking study based on the numerous Belgian beers represented here. The beers come from locally and internationally well-known and lesser-known breweries: Trappist, lager, dark, amber, fruity, etc. Now’s the time to get a better idea of what you’ll order for your next drink on the terrace!  
The event link: here. And the link to our favourite brewery from the last BBW, the BOSTEELS brewery for its Tripel Karmeliet : here!


WITH THE FAMILY: BAREFOOT STROLL

BaladePiedsNusNL

What would happen if you took everyone’s shoes away?
To avoid a tricky walk where the water could come up to your knees – or even up to your waist – we would not recommend this walk in rainy weather… But, if the weather is nice, it’s pure bliss! Not just for the idea of doing something completely different, but also for the tickling, soft, tingling, cool, hot, etc. sensations, both known and unknown, which you will feel during the walk…
You can find a walk specially organised for families without shoes here!

ADDRESSES: ASPARAGUS ICE CREAM IN NEUVICE

AspergeNL

The old “A Capri” logo with its unchanged appearance has been adopted by a young ice cream maker who produces home-made, original ice cream to die for!There’s asparagus or peanut butter for the more adventurous, or strawberry or chocolate for those who prefer the tried-and-tested flavours. There’s something for everyone and for every taste! They are served with an infectious smile by dairyman Laurent Grifo, who is sure to surprise you with his new flavours which you had no plans to taste…and will do it all again the next day 😉

You can stay in a liege accommodation next to Neuvice and Market Place in Liège!


GOOD IDEA: PUBLIC VEGETABLE GARDENS IN BRUSSELS

potagerkbr

Whether by district, amongst colleagues, friends or as a family, some Brussels residents grow seasonal fruit and vegetables on their roofs!  

Even the Royal Library of Belgium (here) has got involved and allows the public to go and pick some garnish for their lunchtime sandwich from above its cafeteria!

For bigger crops, larger gardens and orchards are within ten minutes of Brussels (for example, in Anderlecht and in Overijse) and make small tubs, buckets or wheelbarrows available to those who want them. The fruit of these crops is charged by weight.

You can visit it if you rent a flat brussels.


RECIPE: BELGIAN-STYLE MUSSELS (WITH OR WITHOUT CHIPS)

MoulesNL09

Good news: THE traditional mussels’ recipe which people enjoy by the seaside or at their mother’s house, with chips or with buttered brown bread, is incredibly easy!
In order of cooking and to make enough for one person, you need: 1 onion, 1 carrot and 1 stick of celery, cut into small pieces and cooked in butter; 1kg of mussels, 2 glasses of white wine, thyme and bay leaf.The mussels are cooked when they are open and they can be eaten straight from the pan, with your fingers, using an empty shell as cutlery!Feel free to invite us round; we’ll bring the white wine or the beers to go with the meal! And to get you in the mood while you’re cooking, (here) is the song “Polo aime les moules-frites” of Stromae, version karaoke !
Don’t forget that you can rent furnished apartment brussel and prepare this very good belgian recipe!
