Namur, the Walloon capital, is an exciting city, cut in half by the river Meuse. In a town with that many pedestrian streets, little shops and a casino it's simply impossible to get bored. The city is located around 45 minutes from Rochefort and an hour's drive from Durbuy, both in the heart of the Belgian Ardennes. Your favourite holiday home in Namur is the perfect departure point to start exploring the Belgian Ardennes.
Ideally situated at the point where the Sambre and the Meuse meet, Namur is the capital of Wallonia. This very pleasant city has a large network of pedestrian streets and a city centre rich in shops and restaurants. On Sundays, the streets are quiet and there is a tranquil atmosphere. Citadel, train station, theatre...numerous monuments stand out for their superb architecture.
In the surrounding area
Apart from the Citadel, which is an incredible monument, Namur offers a number of water activities on the Meuse (boat trips, crossing the river by boat, etc.). The region also teems with caves. Several museums will add a cultural touch to your holiday. Do you fancy a gamble? The Casino is available! You will be a stone's throw from Dinant, its little sister and a marvellous town to visit.
