The discreet luxury of Lébioles Manor, the Little Versailles of the Belgian Ardennes

Nicknamed the Little Versailles of the Belgian Ardennes, Lébioles Manor offers discreet luxury just outside the city of Spa.

Located a short drive from Spa, the city that gave its name to wellness centres the world over thanks to its mineral-rich spring water, this hundred-year-old manor is a top tourist attraction in Belgium. Nestled in the heart of the Ardennes forest, the Lébioles Manor offers guests discreet luxury, a private ambiance, and opulent amenities.

Tactful luxury at the Lébioles Manor

With just two rooms and eight suites, this country mansion from 1905, which has been restored to its original lustre, can only host a lucky few within its sumptuous walls. You’ll have to pull out all the stops to secure a room key. Once you do, however, you’ll be treated to family-style hospitality and a pampered, exclusive experience.

A resort in the heart of nature

The hotel offers a wide range of amenities, including a restaurant headed up by Laurent Léveillé, a chef who loves to use in-season products and is widely cited in fine dining guides. Guests can follow their luxury dining experience with a stay in the Wellness Centre, where a sauna, pool, steam room, ice fountain, aromatherapy shower, and gym offer the perfect way to forget your worries and get back in tune with nature. And that’s just one of many reasons why you should make the manor your next weekend destination.
