Our Neighbourhood

La Hulpe is a small french-speaking municipality in the very nice south-east surroundings of Brussels. It's a perfect base for discovering BRUSSELS (15-20 minutes away by car or train) and other regions nearby, for example the ARDENNES mountains where you can go trekking or canoeing (1 h by car) and the Dutch or Belgian COAST with its beautiful sand dunes (1,5 h by car). PARIS is only 1 h 20 minutes away from Brussels by train and LONDON and AMSTERDAM about two hours.
