The accomplice and sparring partner of Au Plaisir is a journalist who specialises in tourist routes. Kristien Hansebout knows every spot of the region and draws out circuits for road bicycles, mountain bikes, walking, motorbikes and cars so that you can also keep us updated. We supply you the maps and corresponding GPS landmarks.
To give you an example of an original circuit, you could leave the lodge with an empty picnic basket that you will fill along the way with local and natural products (juices, cheeses, meats, bread, etc.). All that is left is to taste your treats on a river bank or on some grass beside a stream with clean drinking water. Enjoy!
You are also in the heart of a beer-producing region. Sample the best local beers and discover their breweries.
