What is it you do?
"This is a small (90 m2) limestone house dating from 1860. Its greatest charm is its cottagey interior: beams, cosy rooms with low ceilings. The furnishing is low-key, in keeping with the spirit of the house. The kitchen, which opens onto the small dining room and the sitting room, extends out to a spacious wooden deck with outstanding views stretching for miles across the Wimbe valley. This south-facing area is ideal for al fresco dining, relaxing in absolute peace and quiet or watching thelocal animals, both domestic and wild (cows, herons, foxes, etc.), going about their lives).
From the deck there is access to the child-safe garden and the off-street parking area."
What prompted you to seek "Famenne-Ardenne UNESCO Global Geopark Partner" status?
"Our gîte is centrally located in Revogne right in the heart of a Natura 2000 site. In the interests of authenticity, we have retained the architectural features of the original buildings. We are prepared to throw our hearts into promoting the region as whole, on the basis of the criteria laid down by the Geopark. What we hope to gain from this international label is to forge links, become part of a network and put ourselves on the international map. We would like to create more synergies with other accommodation providers, tourist attractions or local producers."
What is your approach to sustainable development and environment friendly practices?
"We have installed solar panels, and we encourage our guests to sort their waste. We work with tourist attractions in the region, and with local producers, so as to offer our guests mini 'package tours'. We have also laid out a number of short walks around the gîte to introduce visitors to our local wildlife, plants and culture."
