Bertrix is located at the heart of the Belgian Ardennes, between the towns of Bastogne and Bouillon and overlooking the hills of the Semois valley. Part of a Dutch chain, the site has over 400 terraced pitches of which 299 are for touring, all with 10A electricity, and 43 also have water and drainage. A variety of seasonal caravans are sited among them and there is a friendly feel to the area. Some pitches are available with children’s play huts on stilts! A wide range of imaginative activities are organised in the holidays, including some exciting excursions on horseback to the nearby working slate mine.
There are many opportunities for walking, cycling and driving in the attractive countryside, with its wooded hills, valley and rivers, on which canoeing is popular. A trip to the nearby ruined castle at Bouillon is a must as well as experiencing the many Belgian beers. The war memorial and excellent museum at Bastogne commemorate the Battle of the Bulge. The town of Bertrix is unusual in its use of local slate, not only on the roofs but as cladding for the walls, and even the church spire.
