Need to switch off? What better than a wilderness experience. Very close to the Hautes Fagnes and its magnificent walks, less than 2 kilometers from the circuit of Spa-Francorchamps, this chalet is a real haven of peace. To chill and revitalize yourself, come and spend some time with Oliver, householder in my absence, (he’s a little shaggy, but totally harmless and very loving :-))
Welcome to my home !
Having lived ten years in Quebec, Canada, I was lacking to spend time in a country cottage... I love nature, walks, evenings by the fire ... But beware ... in the countryside, at the entrance of the woods, does not mean isolated in the middle of the woods, nevertheless there are neighbors and no big bad wolf, but do not be surprised if a deer comes to graze in the garden :-).
It is understood that when you are not there, I live there, so I have arranged it according to my own needs, but wanting to maintain a certain simplicity to try to keep the true values ... So it is true, you will not find a microwave or electric fireplace (I like to cook old fashioned), but nothing like a gas cooker and a good battery of pans! There is still a small oven if you like gratin :-)
And what better way to warm your evenings to the sound of the crackling wood fire, while preparing you a good tea on the stove :-) Don’t be afraid, there is also central heating!
At the living room, the sofa is convertible into a double bed, you have a cable TV and even ... (forgive me, it's my Geek side) ... Netflix ... (this is my only gap , promised ...) Oh and the key for the Wi-Fi is on the right side of the fridge ...
The bedroom has a double bed and a bedside table (with usb sockets for your best friend ...). It is not very big, it's like a small cabin in the cottage, but lying in bed, the curtains open, we have a breathtaking view of the stars ...
The bathroom is functional, shower, sink, toilet, heated towel, what else?
Outside, you have a terrace with a table and four chairs and a bbq with charcoal. There is a garden of about 1000 m2, a swing and a slide.
For the parking, there is room for at least 4 cars directly at the entrance of the chalet.
Practical questions, bed linen, towels and soap are provided. There is coffee that you can grind and then prepare it in a Italian machine (it has all its charm, you will see :-))
On the table you will find two binders, blue with maps for those who would like to explore the area and black with the necessary information to stock up on everything you will need to prepare delicious dishes.
Stavelot is a green municipality. Recycling bins are available in the laundry / dressing room, on each bin, a small drawing will indicate what it is ready to collect. Also the outer garbage can be divided into two parts, left for household waste (garbage), right for green waste (compost). In this room you will also find a washing machine and a dryer.
Hockai is 550 m above sea level, so it is not surprising in winter to see a white carpet that will cover the ground ... A snow shovel will be at your disposal next to the front door :-)
Concerning Oliver (the cat), he's my companion from Quebec, he came back with me. He knows how to be discreet, but also very affectionate with people who love animals. He is very calm and nice, you may even find it difficult to leave ... If so, we will welcome you again :-)
I think I have pretty much done the trick, if you have questions / suggestions do not hesitate!
