Set in a gorgeous, sheltered valley of the Ardennes in Wallonia (the French-speaking region of southern Belgium), Les Cabanes de Rensiwez has possibly the most romantic treehouses that you have ever seen. The name literally means "the crossing of the reindeer", and a part of the pathway leading to the cottages was built by Roman legionary. Luckily today, there is no sign of infantryman around here. Instead, it's the striking beauty of the rolling hills, lush green forests, and the calmly flowing river of Ourthe that encircles you.
The Moulin de Rensiwez area within the Ardennes is known for stories about fairies, and the creators of this getaway gave life to these fairy tales by imaginative structures and interiors. All you have to do now is pick one of the nine river cabins, nine cabins on the hill, five cabins on the ridge, three huts, six suites in the main building, and a waterfront house.
Indisputably, La Cabane d'Ernest is the most exciting of all. It's an underground bear den facing the River Ourthe. It's been buried under the hill with only a fairy chimney peaking out through its green-covered roof. The interior is fitted with old wood and dry stone, making it the ultimate cozy hideaway. Did I mention the huge stone bathtub and the wood-burning fireplace? Some of the larger cottages have wood heated saunas too.
Rensiwez is almost CO2 neutral, and they protect biodiversity by replacing lawn areas for flowery meadows and replanting hundreds of native plants throughout the premises. So you can rest assured that this pristine land in the heart of Parc Naturel des Deux Ourthes is in good hands, and your stay will be as magical as the photos below suggest.
