Carlingford and The Cooley Peninsula
Pronouncing the name of Durbuy is already being half way to Durbuy, at the entrance of the Ardennes. Breathe deeply and find yourself in this green delight with its unique charm. Less than two hours from Brussels, Maastricht or Aachen and only slightly further from Lille, you are at the heart of a thousand years of history, in a rural area brimming with heritage and flavours of every kind. At any time of the year the old mediaeval town of Durbuy invites you to stroll through its cobbled streets or to explore the enormous variety of walking trails in the vicinity. In total, 41 villages and hamlets cover an area three-quarters of it covered by forest and meadows. A glorious mix of colours and experiences that will constantly enchant you throughout your stay. However you may be spoiled for choice with 45 restaurants and lots of picnic areas along the 170 km of waymarked paths, you may feel torn between staying at one of the 22 luxury hotels or B&B and you may find it hard to cram kayaking, mountain biking, golf or climbing via ferrata, taking part in a geocaching all into a single day !
