Town
“In the heart of Wallonia lies chocolate-box Durbuy; a Belgian Ardennes town that claims to be the smallest town in the world, and with its charming architecture and winding cobbled streets, one of the most beautiful too. A walk through Durbuy’s streets reveals quaint shops and plenty of opportunities to sample a Belgian beer or two. Look up on banks of the Ourthe River and you’ll see the stately 17th century Durbuy Castle.”

“If you want the most authentic dining, you should definitely go to La Canette! A seasonal menu, a cosy athmosphere, great host and the most delicious food. This is definitely our favourite in Durbuy! Make sure you make reservations during the weekend.”
