Sthg in common with Venice, La Rochelle... :)
Another point it shares with those nice "beautiful, picturesque" places, Durbuy is a city to walk in.
Bring the good shoes, certainly not the stillettos! The cobblestoned alleys wouldn't leave you alone if you venture there with high heels.
You would see, landscape is different but its charming alleys, cobblestoned streets will enchant you... You would be back in the Middle age, wandering in those little alleys, looking at those Ardennese stone buildings, staring at the landmarks such as the castle, the church which I don't remember the name.. Who said a Notre Dame? Yes, I think yes! The cobblestoned streets with the picturesque buildings.
Again, the castle
Forest near the river
The celt root "dur" means forest and "bu" is water.So, "durbu" could be a place near a river in a forest.
Living in the eco-village Terre d'Eneille,not far from Durbuy,one day we went to this "town".I found it nice but there was a lot of tourists.I was told that many of them were dutch.Perhaps it's because there is here a little mountain....
WELCOME TO MY DURBUY PAGE ......:-)
" DURBUY , THE SMALLEST CITY IN THE WORLD...."
or so they say......but is it important if it really is the smallest city in the world??
Noo, more important is what it looks like and let me tell you it is great!!
So picturesque......whatever the weather, whatever the season!
It lies hidden in the Belgian Ardennen and I had never heard the name of this place, so pin-head small but...small is beautiful, isn't it??
" THIS WAS THE HOUSE WE RENTED....."
A lovely house hidden by trees from the other houses, on hilly terrain, surrounded by trees....... In the tips on ACCOMODATION I shall tell you more......do have a look there!
From here, this site, we could drive around and visit many lovely places, a lovely autumn stay!
