This spectacular property was built and designed by architect and visionary hotelier Dominque Noel. He originally opened an amazing restaurant, called La Gargouille, that specializes in Belgian delicious dishes cooked carefully using only local ingredients and bio-organic products. Dominque Noel, who owns the land where the restaurant was opened, thought he could attract a greater number of tourists if he will build a hotel. So, a brilliant Idea was born! He has taken inspiration from fairytales to construct these amazing bedrooms next door to the restaurant. The motto of the hotel is all that you can imagine is real. La Balade des Gnomes translates as The Walk of the Gnomes.
From the outside the hotel looks like your stepping into a fairytale. The rooms are located in a farmhouse, with a Trojan Horse suite nearby. To gain access to the horse visitors will need to lower the drawbridge.
The Trojan Horse is an individually apartment; it is entirely made of wood. You must see what the ingenious architect managed to create. Besides the amazing Trojan Horse there are 10 different bedrooms; each of them has its own name and its own fantastical theme. These include a cabin in the forest, a neighborhood on the moon, stars in the desert, the legend of the trolls and even a wine cellar with vines, barrels and oak wine press furniture. All of them were decorated with lots of attention to details.
The cabin in the forest is a shrine dedicated to fire, earth and water. The walls of wood are covered with dry clay, beams supporting the roof of the same material are tree trunks; also a lot of stumps, branches and stones can be found around the room. The minibar is guarded by a stuffed eagle. Overall, you feel like sleeping in the forest, but at the same time having the necessary comfort. Price per night for two people is 115 euros.
