A winter weekend in the Ardennes

Are you planning a weekend with friends, a family trip or a company trip? You are looking for a place that gives the vacation feeling, is not too far away and has something to offer for everyone. The Ardennes is obviously the place to go for a relaxing or active weekend in nature. It is easily accessible from the Netherlands, Belgium and France. There is something for every age and interest and you can make it as sporty as you want.

The Ardennes are often visited in the summer but actually this is a fantastic place all year round. So you can also spend a wonderful weekend or a vacation week in the winter in this environment. A tent is obviously not what you are looking for, but a group home is the solution!

Group house Ardennes
Whether you are organizing a family weekend or a group of friends, a house in the Ardennes is always a good idea. At Domaine du Bocq we have two accommodations that can be booked throughout the year. Both accommodations are located in the valley with beautiful green mountain slopes, old railroad tracks and near Namur and Dinant.

Maison Régal
A cozy accommodation, the former train station of Purnode. Suitable for 24 people. There are plenty of sleeping places, a cozy common room with wood stove, a fully equipped kitchen and room for a campfire outside.

Maison de la Vallée
This group accommodation Is the former railroad hotel of Purnode. The accommodation is suitable for up to 15 people. As in Maison Régal, there is an equipped kitchen, a cozy room with wood stove and a campfire area.

Weekend in winter
The nice thing about the group accommodations is that a weekend in the Ardennes can always take place. Sun or snow, it is always possible to stay with us. In addition, there are enough activities in the area for any type of weather and season. Cozy together by the fire inside, warming up after a walk by the campfire outside and with dry weather explore the surroundings.

The group houses are located between Dinant and Namur, two cities where there is much to see. Think of a brewery, old Citadel, various museums, monasteries or the caves. There are also many active possibilities. Explore the area by mountain bike or, in good weather, take to the canoe to view everything from the water. There are also many fantastic hiking trails to explore the Ardennes. And for the real adventurers there is also climbing in appropriate weather or via abseiling and via ferrata to brave the mountains.

And the team at Rocks 'n Rivers is also happy to think with you to make it a complete weekend. With activities that can always be moved inside. This way you will have a successful weekend which will be talked about for a long time, weather or no weather.
