The area of the Semois and the Gaume

Fontenoille is located in the Belgian province of Luxemburg, close to the French border and the French Ardennes, with the famous city of Sédan and the nearby battle field of the first worldwar.

It is an interesting base with a central location, ideal for exploring the Semois Valley and the Belgian and French Gaume region.

The meandering river Semois, which runs at 3 km from the house, is one of the most splendid natural environments of the Ardennes. The many typical villages along the river are like pearls on a wonderful string: Chassepierre, Herbeumont, Florenville, Poupehan, Dohan, Cordemoy, Bouillon, Vresse, Rochehaut, Frahan…

The region is an excellent place to bike, to hike, to do horseriding and especially to discover the Semois river by canoe.

The Gaume region is a quiet region with rolling woodlands and breathtaking open spaces which enjoys a mild climate.

Nature is here on its best with wild animals, orchids, butterflies and many interesting bird species.

If you care for quiteness and abundant nature this is the place to be, not to forget the excellent local cuisine which one can taste at many places around.
