Tips by Team F&S: Summer Staycations
"This is on my bucket list, it’s a eco friendly cabin in the middle of nature with no internet so that you can truly slow down and relax. It never stays in one location and is a secret, so that keeps it very exciting and mysterious."
Slow Cabins, the tip of Anastasia, our Front Desk & Venue Officer Albert.
"The domain of Bokrijk has countless ponds and lakes and the surroundings are just breathtaking.‘Cycling through water’ is a place within the domain where you cycle/walk through a large lake at eye level, providing you with magical views, especially during sunset. Either way, it always feels as if you are somewhere else, completely disconnected from the busy world and close to nature. Tip: go cuddle with the little goats at the farm for instant happiness."
Cycling through Water, the tip of Charlotte, our Location Manager Albert.
"Always a pleasure to return from vibrant Brussels to the peace and greenery of Limburg. Suggestion: sleep in a unique location ‘Tranendreef’ and take your bicycle (or rent one) to travel to ‘Reading between the lines’ (an installation by Gijs Van Vaerenbergh) or head to ‘Fietsen door de bomen’ (10 meters above the ground, nearly touching the sky). In case you have fear of heights, you might also check out ‘Fietsen door het water’. More interested in Culture? Try ‘Vollebak Vennestraat’ in Genk and don’t forget to pass by the beautiful Art Gallery F.O.M.A.…"
Staycation in Limburg, the tip of Laura, our Meeting & Events Manager Alfons & Boitsfort.
"As we were spending time searching for the perfect weekend getaway, my friends and I decided to stay in own town & have a total relax weekend at home. Having a huge royal breakfast, bbq with a good glass of wine, getting a massage, having dinner. This strange situation makes me realise even more how to enjoy things that are right in front of us, I love to embrace that."
Friend's Garden, the tip of Sien, our Graphic Designer.
"It is on my to do list, but these charming wooden cabins are located in the middle of the forest in the Ardennes. The perfect getaway for a hiking tour during the day in the green Ardennes, and to relax in a wooden hot tub, sauna or even jacuzzi during the night! The perfect combination for a (must say, romantic) staycation."
Les Cabanes de Rensiwez, the tip of Elise, our Content Manager.
"A romantic guesthouse in Anglo-Norman style with a beautiful garden and outside swimming pool, only 15 minutes from the city center of Brussels and walking distance from Bois de La Cambre. A true piece of paradise and peace for relaxing times. Go and have breakfast and lunch at Cafe le refuge (15min walk)."
La Maison Chantecler (Uccle), the tip of Eveline, our Clan Lead Belgium.
"No need to go far to do a spectacular trekking with magnificent views. The full route starts in Arlon and ends in Montherme, you can walk 205 km along the beautiful Semois river. Of course it’s possible to do parts of this ‘Grande Randonnée’, the etappe from Bouillon to Alle-sur-Semois (22km) is the perfect day hike."
GR16 Sentier de la Semois, the tip of Elle, our Marketing Lead.
