Hi, I'm René. I'm Dutch, I live in Belgium and I have a business in Germany. This is not unusual when you were born an raised in the tri-country region between the rivers Rhine and Meuse. I am married to Astrid (highschool love) and instead of children we have 2 british shorthair cats. We love to travel (for which we have too little time), especially in the rural parts Spain and Portugal. Our hobbies are good food, spanish wines and staying with family and friends. I have been a frequent visitor of the Belgian Ardennes ever since my parents took me and my sister there on Sunday trips. Almost on a weekly basis.
Since Astrid and myself only live an hour's drive from the Ardennes it was a logical decision to buy ourselves a refuge there. We found a wonderful old farmhouse that had been beautifully restored and immediately fell in love with it. Since then we have enjoyed it very much. We like to share it with our guests who have found us from all over the world ....
