Vibrant French, excellent spa

In the middle of National Park Hoge Kempen’s lush greenery, lies Domaine La Butte aux Bois. Originally built for Sir Lagasse de Locht in 1924, it was converted into a modern hotel almost 60 years later. The spacious and fashionable guest rooms are located in the Manor, the opposite Villa or in La Forêt. The ambience is of a large French Estate, with magnificent gardens and terrace.

La Butte aux Bois’ unique location with many amenities create a relaxing atmosphere. Enjoy the new state-of-the-art 1,350 sq.m. Wellness Area ‘Spa Retreat La Forêt’ which includes Spa, fitness and Health & Beauty. LaForêt’s garden merges beautifully into National Park De Hoge Kempen’s landscape.

The 2-star restaurant Ralf Berendsen stands for pure, passion and perfection. Maître Ylja Berends knows how to respond to this perfectly with her extensive and carefully selected wines.

In restaurant 'Nduja by Ralf you can taste Southern Italian dishes, with a contemporary twist.

The prettiest village in Flanders, Oud-Rekem and Outlet Shopping Maasmechelen are well within reach. Maastricht is also nearby.

Domaine La Butte aux Bois is situated not too far form Dutch Maastricht (8 km), Belgian Liege (30 km) and German Aachen (40 km). Should you tire from the lovely woodlands, these cities offer plenty of cultural and recreational trips. National Park De Kempen is nearby and offers horse riding trips or mountain bike excursions.
