There is no shortage of city walks and hiking trails in Wallonia, and don’t forget about Liège either! Lately, we’ve loved getting lost in the parc de la Chartreuse! With 40 hectares of nature, an incredible history, a fort, surprising buildings and changing landscapes, we’re completely sold and we go there as often as we can. How about you?
Reopening of the hospitality sector + social distancing measures = bar and restaurant terraces that are literally gaining ground…
and we’re pleased to see it! These few additional metres, in some cases are an extra incentive for our already favourite establishments. Like the Cupper Café, which is increasingly spreading out at the foot of the impressive and colourful Saint-Barthélemy Collegiate Church (what a view!). In the heart of the historic centre, away from the hustle and bustle, in the quite pedestrian zone… half in the sun, half shaded, it definitely feels like you’re somewhere else altogether.
What could be better than a good chocolate to console yourself during this period?
Franz Derkenne and his wife Eliane, passionate craftsmen, have been making our palates satisfied for 40 years. Creativity is not lacking with more than fifty different pralines available each day, and some house specialties like the praline with whiskey from Bouillon.
We can even compose personalized pieces according to each season and holidays. Franz is the exclusivity of a range of gourmet, fine and unique products. It is for this reason that we like to offer some to our loyal customers as a special thanks.

Let’s face it, the love of Belgians for craft beers is not new and it’s not going to fade away anytime soon!
Microbreweries have continued to flourish all over Belgium in recent years. This is also the case in Manhay, in the Ardennes, where the Oster brewery caught our attention and its 7.2% blonde seduced our taste buds. Creamy and tasty, with a very reasonable bitterness and a pleasant cereal flavour. It even has a slight hint of cardamom!
Also, don’t hesitate to enter the Brasserie d’Oster, it’s a nice place to stop and taste the creations of the house and grab a bite to eat!
Put on your swimming gear! A new public swimming pool has opened! And we couldn’t be happier!

Everything is there – and well thought out – to make you feel good! We particularly appreciate the large bay window which gives this place a beautiful luminosity. A great cure for all the greyness!
