This week is packed with arrivals of our frequent (and new!) tenants that came exclusively for the Christmas market!! They are all excited for the opening which takes place TODAY!!! We can barely await to stroll around their huts while drinking a glass of mulled wine to get warm and to eat all the delicious Christmas specialties.

The Christmas market in Liège, existing for 31 years already, is the most important one in Belgium due to its size and the atmosphere that is surrounding it. Every year, there are around 200 huts that attract almost 2 million visitors among which you can find more and more visitors from all over the world!

The festivities begin TODAY. Don’t miss it because on top of all, Liège was elected the European Christmas City!!!


Escondida – Our new floating house !

You would like to experience a stay in an unusual location?

We have exactly what you are looking for: Our new floating house “Escondida”!

Ideally located at the marina “Port des Yachts”, this boat offers you a perfect balance between the tranquility of the water and  the immediate proximity to the city center.

The boat, built in 2016, is luminous, well equipped and has two small and charming terraces on which you can enjoy an aperitif with a beautiful view on of the Albert 1st bridge, as well as of the “Quai Marcellis”.


Fair in Liège

The 159th edition of the Fair in Liège is drawing to an end. Only 6 days remain to go visit the biggest Fair in Belgium, to try the 175 attractions and to fill one’s belly with Belgian treats like Croustillons and Lacquemants.

You prefer hearty dishes? No problem, there are also stands that sell Belgian Fries, Hot-Dogs, Hamburgers, etc. You can taste Glühwein as well that helps to keep you warm considering the cold weather.

There’s something fun for everyone!

You want to have an incredible view over the City of Liège? Try the newest attraction of 2018, “Top of the world”, a chain carousel that reaches a height of 58m, or the Ferris wheel “Roue Royale” that you will find in the middle of the Fair.

Don’t hesitate to go there and to enjoy the last days.


GOOD IDEA : CHARLI.WORLD

Gone are the days when some kind soul had to drive you to the airport or pick you up at 3 am…

Discover a good plan for all! Our team had been longing for this for ages: a super handy shuttle from the Liège train station to Brussels Airport and back, 24/7. An affordable service with a smile! And let’s face it, a friendly smile when you can barely keep your eyes open in the early morning is always welcome….

RECIPE : RED CABBAGE WITH APPLES

Now that the weather is getting colder, we’re craving comfort food!

Discover one of the national specialities, with that signature Belgian mix of sweet and savoury. Red cabbage with apples is usually a weekday dish, served with sausage and potatoes. Check out the recipe here but – don’t spread the word – you can easily find it ready-made in a jar in many shops: open it, heat it, devour it, and snuggle up on the sofa for a cosy night in.


ADDRESS : SAPIENS-SAPIENS

The modern drugstore for the Man who knows that he knows!

This small shop in the heart of Liège is managed by an architect couple that loves things done well. Are you a bit difficult or picky? Or simply put, do you know exactly what you want? Then this is the place to be! Sylvie and Manu select only well-thought-out and beautifully crafted objects, solid and useful, not to mention made to last. We’ve bought inox drinking bottles, a knife sharpening stone, a serving dish we had been dreaming of for ages, ultra-natural soap bars, a pair of left-handed scissors, and much more.

WITH FAMILY (OR FRIENDS) : FARMER’S GOLF

Ready to have a laugh?

We tend to only go there when it’s sunny, but it’s probably even more fun when you’re wearing gloves and a thick scarf. Head to the fields for a game of farmer’s golf: take your clog-shaped club head, grab a wooden golf club, swing the big balls across the field, and watch them zig-zag their way in between cows and cow dung. A small picnic area has been set up for the players to enjoy a little break half-way through the golf course.
We sipped an aperitif after two hours of fun in the great outdoors 😉

For more information and bookings, go to the ‘Ferme de la Bourgade’ website.


CULTURE : THE SMURF EXPERIENCE

Brussels is hosting the world of the Smurfs until 27 January 2019!

Get ready to feel small like a Smurf, ‘three apples high’. Forget the somewhat flashy marketing that accompanies any event of this type at Brussels Expo; this adventure really is worth your while! An interactive magic flute, virtual reality, holograms, fantastic decors, special effects, and so much more. This ‘exhibition/amusement park’ really is a smurfalicious adventure for all modern Smurfs!

WE LIKE : GIPSY YOGI

We’ve finally found the time to take our time… and it feels good!

Yoga, from soft to more sporty or meditational, adult or kids’ yoga, massages, nutritherapy, sophrology, musicology and other energising treatments… you’ll find everything you need at this temple of well-being and health from 7:30 am to 10 pm. Both the team and the opening hours are a perfect match for our busy lifestyle.
Keep an eye on the Facebook page because a competition will be launched in the next few days. You can win a discovery pass… So, be sure to share the good vibes!
