Tranquillity and space

In the green heart of the Belgian Ardennes, you will find hotel Espace Medissey, in the tiny hamlet of Bois de Villers. The five guest rooms in this modern villa are luxurious and are well appointed, including mood lighting in all rooms for your convenience.

The large garden has a heated swimming pool. Inside is a fitness area with cardio equipment and a full-size pool table. Weather permitting you can have breakfast on the terrace and enjoy the beautiful view of the Maas valley. Enjoy fine dining in two-star restaurant l’Eau Vive, situated in an old 17th-century watermill only five minutes from the hotel.

For many years this restaurant has belonged to the gastronomic aristocracy of Belgium. Using his passion and superb produce such as ‘king crab’ and truffles, the chef will surprise you with exquisite dishes. Or try the table d’hôte, on an intimate terrace on the banks of the small river. Next door to l’Eau Vive is Le Cube, an architectural gem that accommodates up to six. To complete the culinary experience, head for Le Comptoir (brasserie, bar, wine cellar), 20 minutes by car from L’Eau Vive.
