Namur holiday apartments - holiday in the capital of Wallonia
A holiday rental Namur, the capital of the province of the same name, as well as of Belgium's Wallonia region, is a great choice for a weekend away: it's not far from Brussels, and small enough that you can tour the city on foot.
At the confluence of the Meuse and the Sambre rivers is the old Citadel – a fortress dating back to the 10th century, and was in use up until the 20th. The views across the city are impressive, and informative guided tours are run in English, of both the citadel buildings and the underground passages, or “souterrains”. One of the best sets of underground passages in Europe, these were actively used both hundreds of years ago and during the second world war. If that's not enough, the Ardennes forests, not far from Namur holiday rentals, are home to fifteen sets of caves and grottos that you can visit.
Throughout the year, Namur is host to many festivals, from jazz, to rock, to film festivals and folk festivals, such as the Fetes de Wallonie, and Namur en Mai. It's worth booking a holiday rental Namur to coincide with one of these great events, or during Advent, when Namur plays host to the area's largest Christmas market. Beer fans will enjoy all the award winning, special and unusual beers they can try when they have a Namur holiday rental. It's easy to get from Namur to other local cities such as Charleroi or Liege, even to Maastricht in the Netherlands.
