Les Doyards Vielsalm: Holiday park Ardennes

Village de Vacances de Oignies

General information about this holiday park


The holiday park of Oignies is located in the Viroin-Hermeton nature reserve, 2 km from the center of the village of Oignies and only 4 km from the French border.

The 50 bungalows of 6 to 8 people are spread out in a forest of 12ha. All properties have recently been completely renovated and offer the guest the warmth and hospitality of a wooden bungalow. The space between the various dwellings makes it possible to stay in peace and in harmony with nature. With some luck you might even encounter a deer, a squirrel or wild boar. The foothills of the Ardennes offer a beautiful spectacle with every new walk.

In the spring, nature wakes up slowly with the first sunshine. Make a stop and view the fresh plants and flowers, take the time to listen to a bird song. In the summer the temperature is pleasant, the forests protect you from high temperatures and blueberries cover the forest face. In autumn the mushrooms grow and wild animals visit the park. A nice time for building the cabin in the forest. In winter the snow covers the whole country and can enjoy the cross-country ski runs of the area.

With 120 km² of forests, a real paradise for hikers and nature lovers.
