Availability of 'Domaine la Vignette'

This self catering holiday home is uniquely situated on top of the hill near the village of Brouennes and has a legendary view over the valley and village. In the middle of the 'green lung of Europe', on the border of the Ardennes and Meuse departments, in the triangle Luxembourg-Reims-Nancy.
The immediate surroundings are very hilly in contrast to the rest of the landscape. The roof tiles which, as I was told by old Italian immigrants, remind of Italy and are exceptional for the architecture. The houses are built of beautiful yellow stone from the quarries of this area.
Brouennes is a small village with 160 inhabitants, it is one of the most characteristic villages of the area with houses along the river Baâlon. This small stream of water supplies the fish farming ponds between the village and the castle of Bronelle.
The "wild" nature is beautiful and accessible, with a great variety of birds and exceptional flora.

    Alles aan deze prachtige gite klopt. Het is door de eigenaar met ongelooflijk veel liefde ,smaak en oneindig geduld vanuit een vervallen staat opnieuw opgebouwd . De schatplichtigheid aan de geschiedenis en het oog voor detail , zie je niet alleen maar dat voel je vooral . Het is een comfortabele volkomenheid die je de hele dag ervaart , waar je ook in of om het huis bevindt : het klopt . Het huisje is groot genoeg voor een gezin van 4 personen , heeft een heerlijke grote woonkeuken , fijne bedden en plekjes te over (binnen en buiten) om te verpozen. Ik kan (en zal) dit met klem aan iedereen aanraden.
