Villa Haulmé

8.9

Welcome to the home presentation of our luxurious and comfortable villa in the French Ardennes. The house sits on a hill at the edge of a small village with stunning views over the river Sambre, surrounded by forests and only 3 hours drive from Utrecht! A more than spacious and luxurious home where a burly Dutchman from his head will not strike. The villa is from three days to rent for up to 8 people.

And there is much to experience and enjoy. Active sports, culture interesting, welcoming gastronomy ...

Walking through vast fields, hills and forests, cycling and mountain biking trips, swimming, golfing, fishing, canoeing, quad biking, everything in this nature-rich part of France.

For lovers of culture, history, the castles and charming towns Charleville-Mezieres and Sedan with the largest fortified castle in Europe, very worthwhile.

About 2000 years of history along the revived "Fortification Route" that the visitor through the Meuse valley and on the Plateau of Rocroi carries. Furthermore, through dense forests and along meadows of Lorraine Ardennes. Very worthwhile on this trip is a visit to the Maginot Line in the town of Fort Villy-la-Ferte. On May 18, 1940, the Germans attacked the stronghold of La Ferte on, blew up the loopholes of the armored turrets on, threw the armored tower defense work over and the soldiers threw grenades inside enclosures.

Through 'The Legend Route of the Meuse and Semoy introduces you to many "haunted" woods of the Ardennes. In the Middle Ages it was thought that there are lions and dragons lived. Who was so lost in the woods never to return. The French Ardennes is also the scene of the famous legend about the four sons of Aymon, the four brothers who fled their famous steed Carillon to the vengeance of Charlemagne to escape. The architectural heritage in the French Ardennes is exceptional. In these forests you can practice walking with a little imagination and imagine yourself back in the Middle Ages.

A picturesque setting also of plump hills and lush forests. The architectural heritage in this area is exceptional. The 15 fortified churches with their towers, castle towers and loopholes are-there-with many other impressive witness. The saber rattling that has died has long been replaced by an atmosphere of ancient peace. This is a nice route for the car and engine.

 

"The Forests, Lakes and Abbeys trail 'includes an enchanting journey surrounded by forests, lakes, islands and marshes, where the monks in ancient times already so loved. Among others, the Carthusian monastery of Mont-Dieu and, in the 13th century by the Benedictine abbey built Gothic church of Mouzon, offer interesting possibilities for the history of the French monastic life to discover. Along this route in France you will find also a large number of special churches, like those in the Saint Vouziers Maurille with its impressive portal and Renaissence Malmy with his tiny Romanesque church. Douzy get you even with a museum that encompasses history of aviation.

Now the gardens and parks in this region generally have a high content Begonia. Although the residents and park services to do their very best annuals beautiful lawns in arranging, the fanatical Dutch garden lovers do not get excited.
Except, that is the castle of the Chateau du Grand Jardin at Joinville.

The Italian Renaissance garden surrounding this 16th century castle was restored in an exemplary manner. The interpretation of the flower and plant beds is somewhat adapted to the modern era, but the arches and pergolas are copied from old engravings in the book "Songe the Poliphile" (The Dream of Poliphile) in 1544.

Claude de Lorraine had the castle built in 1546 to ask forgiveness of his wife who he had cheated countless times. La et non plus "(she and nobody else) and" pour une toutes' (all for one) he left in the walls chiselling. Or his wife believed him is not known. But the promises of Claude (whose mother was Duchess of Guelders), 350 years later still entertaining.

Even today you can still find remarkable owners on the many castles that are open to the public. As the somewhat scattered Parisian scientist Dr A. Caprani castle of Villette in Glaire (4 miles from Sedan). Since he was twelve years ago in a crazy mood totally neglected the castle bought, he divides his time between the invention of vaccines and cutting his 200 to 300 year old boxwood.
He is determined to restore to the French garden by an old 18th century plan consisted of four terraces to the Maas (Meuse) led. The old ornaments are almost all present. But Caprani was alone with his two dogs. It will be a while before everything is restored to its former glory.

In another castle Château de Reynel Leempoels attends the elderly lady, who did not even know how many rooms the castle. "I would have to count the windows. I think about 40. It is pretty big right?" She says as she holds her for the first time. On this spot high above a ravine was in the 7th century, a defensive fortress built to protect the village Reynel.

In the 17th century a castle was built on the ruins in the 19th century by the Earl of Reynel was restored and expanded. In 1941 the Germans tore down much of the interior, so the Leempoels who bought in 1942 had their hands full in the reconstruction. Among the artifacts, a Belgian manufacturer over the years collected, hang the paintings of his uncle, Jef Leempoels.

Of amateurism and modesty has Alexe Salignac Fenelon of the Château de Cirey in Cirey-sur-Blaise no problems. Professionally she leads us around the castle, where Voltaire between 1733 and 1749 sought refuge from the Marquis de Chatelet.
On the old 10-franc banknote Voltaire castle depicted, which he did add a building, a terrace and a beautiful carved door. Although he very well could find with the learned Marquise Emilie, whom he translated the works of Newton, he was often bored. He complained that he was in the solitude of the countryside heard the wolf cry. To amuse himself he built in the attic theater.
Currently, the set pieces of theater that was restored by Valerie Tremoulet, who also plays of Versailles and Compiegne among hands.

For children, the massive fortress of Sedan perhaps more exciting than these fun castles. It was built by Evrard de la Marck between 1424 and 1430 and still inhabited by the Dutch Elisabeth of Nassau. She was the second wife of Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne, who through his first wife, Charlotte de la Marck, the castle was in possession.
Fun for children, boating on the river (you can rent fully equipped houseboats) and a visit to the nature of Sept-Saulx, on platforms where you walk through the bog can make.
In general we can say that the average weather in Northern France slightly better than in Amsterdam. Summers are a few degrees warmer in the winter a few degrees colder. The rainfall is similar in March and April but it seems a little wetter than in the Netherlands. In terms of sunshine is in Haulmé something better.

The air is considerably drier than in the Netherlands. It is more a country than a maritime climate. It is at 30 degrees in the summer as much more bearable. The sun is much brighter at this altitude. In the summer, but also in the spring you can not properly burn ointments. You have been warned!

In winter there is a good chance of snow. In the Belgian Ardennes is regularly skiing. Think about winter tires or snow chains? It is pretty hilly.
it can all come in the area!
