Farmhouse

The Old Farm - La Fermette

9.7

In the rolling countryside of the French Ardennes lies this typical Ardennes Old Farm, transformed into a comfortable, spacious family house with beautiful style features. Located in a green oasis in a hamlet near the village of Liart, in the middle of the French countryside with its beautiful views, you can completely relax here. The last French residents of the farm play the leading role in a surprising newspaper column by the Dutch journalist Henk Hofland. Under the title 'A second house' he writes about the residents of the hamlet of Cornaux: '... the farmer's wife with hands like Enka sponges, her mentally handicapped son and the son who went downstairs with the drink'. A family epic in nutshell that now hangs in the house. After the death of the last family member, the farm decayed until the current landlords resurrected it almost 10 years ago with respect for the past, but adapted to modern times. The house can be comfortably warm throughout the year. An energy-efficient heat pump heating keeps the whole house at a comfortable temperature.

The kitchen is equipped with all comforts. There is a king size dining table in the dining room. On the first floor a comfortable bathroom with shower and bath, two spacious bedrooms and a large bedroom on the former hayloft.

The Old Farm is situated in the middle of the Parc Regional des Ardennes. With plenty of opportunities for walking on paved roads and rough tracks, hills on and off to cycle or to swim in a lake. On a sunny Sunday morning a flea market in the area to wander. On a cool autumn day with boots through the clay to banjeren. Or just do nothing at the wood stove. Everything is possible. And all this within an instant, less than 250 kilometers from the Dutch border. But directly in 'la Douce France' , with church, pub and grocery, with the baker of delicious baguettes and croissants. The spacious grounds of the farmhouse house an orchard with different apple, plum and cherry varieties. A little further on the other side is La Grange, De Oude Korenschuur . This monumental building for four to six people can be rented in combination so that holidays can be celebrated with several families.

I am Aart Zeeman and have been in the French Ardennes since 2008. In that year we bought a small farmhouse with grain barn in a small hamlet near the village of Liart. At least, that's what it once was. Three walls were still standing on the farm and the Grange was near the complete collapse. Years of hard labor and sweat-soaked job days with friends followed. Meanwhile the two shelters have been restored to their former glory and turned into wonderful places where we share with us
