We have rented the horse and it was completely worth it. Amazing room full with surprises! Breakfast was amazing! Best idea to stay there for a night. Very romantic and adventurous at the same time. A surreal experience. Highly recommended if you want something out of ordinary.

The pictures don't do it justice. Amazing detail. A real fairy tale place - well worth the detour to stay here- actually, it would have been worth a special trip. The kids haven't stopped talking about it and neither have I. I honestly don't see how anyone could give it less than five stars. When we arrived the horse was...

We stayed in the cabane dans la forêt, the hut in the forest. It's really fun, albeit slightly cramped. It is, I think, one of the smaller rooms. This is why I would suggest it for a short stay. This room is not adequate for people who cannot move easily. You need to be rather nimble, and it can be...

Like everyone else, I agree that it was breath taking. It is an explosion of someones creativity, quirkyness and imagination. The decor does not disappoint. My husband booked this for us for a treat as our last night of a fantastic holiday. We stayed in the wine room- two levels of bonkers wine themed madness including a little bridge past...

What a lovely secluded hideaway tucked away in the Belgian countryside. We stayed in the Latcho-Drom caravan with Donotalia the fortune teller (though she kinda creeped me out a bit). The caravan was so well thought out! The features were in keeping with my vision of an old fortune teller's caravan... nothing was overlooked! What a beautiful way to spend...

As a Solo traveller utisiling public transport this was one of the most difficult places I went to during my month in Europe. Its a little fantasy land and the room I had was incredible, like nothing ive stayed before which was the reason for going there. However it is not in Durbuy but some 10km out of Durbuy and...

My wife is nuts about quirky things like this and she was blown away by the atmosphere and detail that has gone into these rooms. We stayed in the Trolls Den which was like living in a Tolkein story. The attention to detail in the features was just amazing on both an artistic and practical side. If you want to...

Amazing what this interior decorator has created! His fantasy is unlimited, but his building skills also. You sleep in a forest with actual fish swimming in a pond! Or on a boat floating in water! Magical! If you ask the owner he will show you the other rooms, so you can catch a glimpse of this magical world
