Anton Pieck meets the Hobbit ...

Start the new year with a few days off. How many better resolutions can you have? The fantastic weather makes a short excursion to the Ardennes almost irresistible.

We celebrated New Year's Eve in Village Les Gottales, near Trois Pont (Malmedy, Francorchamps, Stavelot). There in the heart of the Ardennes is a small-scale holiday home scene with the unique looks of an Anton Pieck map, even the GPS has a hard time finding it.

The houses appeal to the little princess that is in every woman.

Within walking distance is the 'Ferme Bodson' where friendly and without fuss just good food is put on the table. The cottages have all cooking facilities and the 2500 population of Trois Ponts has two supermarkets ...

You are close to Stavelot Abbey where there are a few interesting museums. For us, the Circuit museum de Francorchamps is of course the best there. Your partner may be more charmed by the 'Puppets from all over the world' exhibition.

We missed a few CDAs. PVDA and VVD puppets ... But not really ...

Another advantage in the area where Dutch tourism was invented in the 1960s: people generally speak - or understand - Dutch.
