The old grain barn


What a gem, this monumental Oude Korenschuur from 1869. Just across the Belgian border, but immediately all the way from France with church, pub, bakery and Spar around the corner. A century and a half later, the imposing building has been thoroughly restored while retaining the old soul, but with modern conveniences. There is a kitchen with a stylish interior, living room with panoramic view, bedrooms with comfortable beds, spacious shower with powerful water and a covered terrace. In short, an authentic yet comfortable accommodation where you can enjoy the tranquility of the countryside.

In addition, you can also be active on the many hiking trails and mountain bike trails of the French Ardennes. The house is suitable for four to six people, with two bedrooms on the first floor, one
with a double bed, the other with two single beds. In addition, there is a double sofa bed in the living room, making it possible to accommodate six people in the end. Frankly, with 6 adults it is a bit on the tight side, with children it is a bit easier. For example, in the so-called castle room there is a sleeping option for 2 people. The Oude Korenschuur is an ideal place to move around in the beautiful Ardennes nature or to just swing with a book in the hammock or to stare at the crackling fire by the wood stove.

The cottage is fully in nature, in the Parc Naturel Régional des Ardennes. In the area there are many possibilities for excursions. Interesting cities such as Reims, Sedan and Charleville-Mezieres, relaxing canoe trips on the Aisne, the Route des Eglises Fortifiées de Thiérache, adventurous climbing trail through the tops of trees, hiking on one of many routes, wandering through the woods, swimming and boating on one of the many lakes in the wider area. A little further on the other side is La Fermette, the Old Farm. That somewhat larger holiday farm for six to eight people is possibly in
rent a 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
