Our home

In a few words

Dating from the beginning of the 18th century, the Vieille Forge is a typical Ardennes house located in the center of the village of Mont, in the commune of Houffalize. It is thus since more than 300 years that the house overhangs the valley of the Fairies, in perfect symbiosis with the fauna and the flora present.

Over the years, La Vieille Forge has seen the addition of "Belgium's smallest brewery", lush gardens and facilities for ever-greater autonomy (with 51 photovoltaic panels!) and comfort.

We are taking over since 2022. With the deep desire to continue the history of this house. Beerlovers, sportsmen or nature lovers, you will feel at home...
