Pol and Tina were super friendly. the rooms were clean and nice. the view was astonishing. Pols' brewery was tiny, but really smart arranged. Tina cooks good food. there was a good selection of both Pols' own beer and others in the bar. all in all, you feel at home here.

Pol and Tine make you feel at home with a great breakfast and a perfect man cave pub...all put together by this wonderful pair. Paul has 2 beers on draft, and a few other specialty beers that he pulled out for tasting. Met some great guys from Chicago and Cincinnati who definitely were there to party. Pol has a great...

What a wonderful, authentic experience at La Vielle Forge! As a beer lover, I knew I wanted to visit Chimay and Chouffe upon traveling to Belgium. I discovered LVF because of the close proximity to the Chouffe brewery, and feel so fortunate to have visited. Pol and Tine are wonderful and gracious hosts. The property is goregous - the B...

Pol and Tine were gracious hosts for my father-in-law and me for our trip to southern Belgium and Luxembourg. We made a day trip to much of Luxembourg without difficulty. The house is somewhat hidden from the small road in the village, but is over 300 years old and well maintained. There is one flight up steep stairs to get... More

This is a beautiful property set in the middle of the Ardennes. The rooms are decorated with items from the local brewery in Achouffe. They were clean and spacious and the hosts were lovely people who thankfully spoke English! We really enjoyed Pol's selection of beers at night and Tine's selection of jams at breakfast.

A charming rural-ish setting with very charming hosts, La Vieille Forge is situated in the rolling picturesque hills right outside of Houffalize and very near Achouffe Brewery. Tina makes breakfast charming with hand made jams and jellies with breads, cheeses, ham and eggs and bacon if you'd like. Pol runs the smallest brewery "Inter-Pol" on the property with a tiny...

We stayed at the La Vielle Forge for two days late in September, in fact we were their last guests for the season. This is a great jumping off point for visiting Bastogne and the memorials. Don't forget the 101st Airborne museum in Bastogne. If you are a beer lover, Pol will share his favorite smaller independent breweries with you,... More

Home of the smallest brewery in Belgium, Au Grand Cafe is on the grounds of the B&B . The hosts, Tine & Pol are very friendly, great hosts and speak very good English as well as Flemish, French and some German. Just out side of Houffalize (north of Bastogne) in the Ardennes forrest, this is a great place to relax,... More
