Overview

About the property

Holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, (Sleeps 6)

What happens when a well-respected artist builds a house of his own, using all his artistic talent? You get this home, which is now to let as a holiday destination. Belgian impressionist painter Richard Heintz built the house in the early 20th century and lived here for over twenty years. It radiates fin-de-siècle elegance both inside and out. Even after a thorough renovation by the current owners, updating the house to satisfy modern standards, the authentic character has been perfectly preserved. The ceiling was removed from one of the bedrooms, so you can lie on your back and look straight up into the little tower, which has been opened up. And we haven't even mentioned the view yet. The small dead-end street is the only path separating the house from the Ourthe River. You can watch the river flow past from the living room, from two bedrooms and of course from the terrace.

The house is in a very quiet location, where you will only see a bit of local traffic. But busier and livelier towns are just a few kilometres away, including Durbuy, Hamoir and Barvaux, where you will find restaurants, shops and more.

To Belgian numbers , both landline and mobile phone calls can be made after 17:00 and on weekends and bank holidays. For the rest of Europe in the same period but only to landlines . If use is made of the unit outside these conditions the costs will be deducted from the security deposit.

Heerlijke vakantie gehad in deze prachtige woning aan de Ourthe. Fijn wandelen in omgeving, kanoën en uit eten in Hamoir. Voor herhaling vatbaar.

De tijd en het weer waren optimaal gezien de bomen nog niet vol in blad waren en het weer ideaal was om 's avonds heerlijk in de zon op het overdekte terras in zitten.

Vanuit dit unieke huis kan je prachtige wandelingen maken.

Jammer van de nabijgelegen spoorwegbrug die de rust wat verstoort.
