You can find us in the northeastern part of France, in the area named after the river Meuse, close to the border of Belgium and Luxembourg. The nearest big town is Verdun. Our little house is comfortable for 1 to 5 guests (or a family with small children, child bed and special child chair for 1-3 years available). (Address: Grande rue opposite no 6)

The space

Almost opposite to our own house we rebuilt a little farmworkers house (one small room and kitchen, a stable for a cow and a hayloft!) into a picturesque guesthouse(Grande rue opposite no 6).
On the ground floor we have made one room. We built an open kitchen from the wood of a nearby walnut tree. We decorated the (fully functional and furnished) kitchen wall with a cheerful mosaic.
The house is heated by a big stove, which is fed with lumps of wood (easily available via the backdoor) from the nearby forest.
The little stable became a bathroom with a bath, toilet and sink, also richly decorated with a big mosaic of a beach, a lighthouse and a cloudy sky! Upstairs we rebuilt the hayloft into a big bedroom with 3 beds (2 doubles, 1 single).
On the southeast side of the house we have a lovely little terrace, partially covered by an old-fashioned sunblind that gives you the recipe for the best salad dressing: oil, vinegar and mustard! Yes, the words are not in French but in Dutch: olie, azijn, mosterd. That’s because we’re both Dutch! We found the sunblind in Amsterdam where our children live.

We bought our house in Loison more than 20 years ago as a cottage for holidays, but little by little it became our real home. We were even married in Loison by our next-door neighbor who, at that time, was the mayor.
We rebuilt the big barns we acquired (and which are adjacent to the little guesthouse) into a studio and workshop for making mosaics and furniture.

There is a little lake (actually a large fish pond) near to (1 km) the village .This is a wonderful place to swim/fish during our hot summers and to (ice)skate
on in wintertime. Access can be discussed on arrival.

This place is very nice! It’s ideal to get away from the stress in everyday life and very peaceful and cozy especially with the nice fireplace one can light in the evening! The hosts are great and very helpful and we had some very interesting conversations! Thank you for that wonderful stay!

A really pretty and uniquely decorated house in a very remote and calm area. Everything you need is in the house. Great to relax and long sleeps if needed. Also really nice for dogs :) Lorraine Valley is close by for walks. A car to get around is recommended.

Me and my boyfriend had a really great time at Adeline's very nice decorated home. The handmade furnitures and wall elements create a very special atmosphere. We were searching for a quiet, relaxing and cozy place to stay and that's what you get there!

Perfect, that's the word to describe our stay. Hosts are lovely and talented. The house is so cosy in a very quiet village. We loved every bit of it. The house is humbly comfortable and has everything one need, from pans to pillows. The local baker comes to the door everyday which is really nice. The house is truly amazing. Thank you so much!

Was a passionate radio-maker for almost 25 years and is now a passionate maker of mosaics. Her husband Martijn can make almost everything he sees with his hands and is the one of the family with the green fingers: he built and cares for his greenhouse. We both like cooking and us…
