The area benefits from a pleasant, clean and stimulating environment and the broad range of classic hotels help to satisfy even the choosiest customers. Hotel business is an established traditional industry in Bouillon and the illustrious men who have stayed beneath the walls of Godfrey’s castle, since Mazarin in the XVII century, has maintained the good reputation of what Vauban called the ‘small capital of the Semois’. Amateurs of fishing greatly enjoy meeting up in the campsites of the Semois floodplain. The country-style housing in the county of Bouillon is mostly old barns, authentic XVIII and XIX century watermills, or farms, mostly very peaceful, located besides a forest, the Semois, a stream or a lake or pond. Rural tourism has grown through the villagers’ commercial ethos, as they have converted part of their Ardenne farm or house in order to welcome those looking for a comfortable family atmosphere and the olden days rural living.
All these establishments are recognised and listed by the Commissariat général au Tourisme of the Walloon region.
