Belgium isn’t all billiard-table flat. Drive south-east and shift the gearbox up and down for an enervating tour of the gloriously wooded Ardennes.
Looking for a motoring holiday with a difference, that’s easy to access in a place which is full of people who speak pretty good English and yet is very much abroad?
Welcome, then, to the delightful Ardennes hills of Wallonia, in the South of Belgium.
No region of comparable size offers so much variety – of scenery, of culture and of activities – and all of it within a few hours’ easy drive of the Channel ports. You can pack a staggering amount of memories into a weekend here but there’ll be plenty still on offer to make you wish you’d made it a week-long visit instead.
There follows a few suggestions and itineraries.
