Ideally located at the junction of 2 natural parks, my guest rooms allow you to discover a region of hills, cradled by the Semois, with history and stories to discover. Gastronomy is not to be outdone, I present it to you a little further.

Gaume, an art of living

The Gaumais are in love with their region. They will want to share it with you if you take the time. Here is the key word: time! Here, the landscapes are savored to the rhythm of footsteps or cycling. Beautiful routes will guide you through the villages and the alleys. What to discover these houses squeezed along a street: our famous village-streets! They have things to tell, these houses at the outposts of deadly battles in 1914! They also housed the steelmakers who ran the blast furnaces of this triple point, between Belgium, France and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Workers, and also peasants:they have always raised cows, and of course pigs, chickens and rabbits. You will see it, this is a land favorable to breeding, less to crops. You will take pleasure in guessing the transformations of these residences according to their occupants.

The park and the castle of Rossignol

You are staying in a house rebuilt after the Great War. Discover his story in another page. 100m on your right is the Rossignol park, open to the public. Place for strolling, this former state park of 11 ha is home to many cultural events. This is where the blue note rises during the Gaume Jazz Festival. A multitude of associations occupy the castle, including the local Tourist Office and the Cultural Center. Apart from these different activities, the park harbors great biodiversity. 2 gardens, one therapeutic and the other oriented towards permaculture are accessible there.Brand new, the Sentier des Plumes, a poetic-ludic route, and a memorial interpretation center to the 14-18 War, open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day until August 15 (then Wednesday afternoons and weekends). -end). As for the castle itself, its origin dates back to the 12th century. Destroyed and rebuilt during the European wars, it bears witness to Gaume's strategic position on the European political scene.

The Battle of the Borders

Opposite the castle, the church of Rossignol. Like the castle and a large part of the village, it was also hit by the terrible bombardments of August 22, 1914 . One of the first battles of the Great War took place in the forest of Rossignol, in the direction of Neufchâteau, opposing French and German troops. Besides the death of the soldiers, commemorated by the military cemeteries at the edge of the forest, Rossignol keeps a painful memory of the civilian prisoners, executed in Arlon.The many monuments in the village itself testify to this, as well as an interesting route dotted with explanatory panels, starting from the church.

Walks and hikes

The marked trails allow you to explore the immediate surroundings of the village on foot or by bike: a few days before your arrival you will receive access to a site that I supply with a lot of tourist information. I am of course very happy to inform you about my favorite corners. A very detailed booklet covers all the walks in the Commune: it is available at the nearby Syndicat d'Initiative, but you can also borrow it during your stay. These trails all leave from the ponds: a popular recreation area for families. For the more athletic: Rossignol is very close to 2 Great Hiking Trails: the mythical GR16 Loops of the Semois and the GR151 Tour of Belgian Luxembourg. Good to know to prepare your stages! If you wish, we can convey your bags.

The musts in Gaume

Rossignol is a village in Gaume, a region straddling the Franco-Belgian border. Do not miss the unmissable sites of the Abbey of Orval, the basilica of Avioth, Chiny and its breathtaking views of the Semois, where you will enjoy maneuvering a kayak or swimming in white water, or even the splendid Domaine des Epioux, a superb place for walks. The Gaume Tourist Office website full of information on activities, walks, events.

The Forest of Anlier, the Ardennes

If you leave the village of Rossignol in the direction of Neufchâteau, you quickly enter the Natural Park of the Forest of Anlier. It's already the Ardennes, with its schist houses. The lake of Neufchâteau has recently been redeveloped. It is a recreational area appreciated by all:children will find a beautiful playground there, the older ones indulge in aquatic leisure activities and sports enthusiasts can explore the hiking trails in the surrounding woods. The Parc de la Forêt d'Anlier also covers the beautiful village of Habay-la-Vieille with its lakes and castles, as well as its many marked trails.
