A Quiet Place brings you the experience of a real village brought to life by peaceful and authentic things to do. Here are some places to explore nearby.
Step outside the gate and soak up Rossignol Park 300m away. This 11ha green area is packed with cultural activities.
It hosts the famous Gaume Jazz Festival. The Belgian Luxembourg youth bands are based here along with Gaume Nature Park, Natagora, Rivière-Semois Contract, Tintigny Project Syndicate and the flourishing Rossignol-Tintigny cultural centre. Here you’ll find Joëlle Simon’s premises, Soin de Soie: a friendly spot to pick out some clothes or get a massage.
Not only is there lots for people to see and do but it’s also packed with real biodiversity.
It lies next to the château that has been destroyed and rebuilt countless times over the centuries and encapsulates Gaume’s strategic setting.
Take a right towards the village centre and you’ll see Rossignol Church. Along with the château and most of the village, it bore the brunt of heavy bombing on August 22nd 1914. One of the Great War’s first battles actually took place in the Rossignol woods on the way to Neufchâteau. The battle was between the French and Germans. Aside from those who fell in battle, who we remember in military cemeteries on the edge of the forest, Rossignol will never forget the civil prisoners who were shot in Arlon. There are countless monuments to them in the village itself as well as an interesting trail peppered with information panels.
Signposted footpaths enable you to walk or cycle just outside the village: there’s a map for the routes in your room. They all start at the lakes, a recreational area popular with river-dwellers… and beavers!
