What is it you do?
"The Hotel la Malle Poste is a characterful stone-built residence dating from the 17th century, in the centre of Rochefort, offering 24 charming yet contemporary rooms. The hotel restaurant, La Calèche, serves seasonal dishes using ingredients sourced from local producers and markets. The rear of the building gives onto a splendidFrench-style formal garden."
What prompted you to seek "Famenne-Ardenne UNESCO Global Geopark Partner" status?
"Our restaurant,La Calèche, maintains close working relationships with local producers in the region (Trappiste de Rochefort beers, Fromages de Jambjoule for cheese, etc.). Hotel breakfasts include home-made bread and jam. Our lighting is for the most part based on energy-saving or LED bulbs."
What is your approach to sustainable development and environment friendly practices?
"We live in a region with a rich heritage, not only natural and cultural but also gastronomic. And now that we are a Geopark partner, we can focus on this quality of hospitality and cuisine, but with the added bonus of the sustainable values embodied by the Geopark and UNESCO."
