Summer France Les Cottages de Valjoly offer guests easy access to all of the attractions of the Valjoly tourist resort on the banks of the largest lake in Northern France. Our accommodation in the heart of the Avesnois National Park provides wonderful surroundings with views of the lake (for specific cottages), perfect for a relaxing yet adventurous break.

Located just five minutes from the centre of the Valjoly, the property is on the doorstep of the numerous activities that can be enjoyed in the Valjoly Holiday Park. Guests can take part in water sports and outdoor activities, and browse the many shops and restaurants. From here, guests will also find routes to the Belgian border, and the small towns of Eppe-Sauvage and Willies. Les Cottages de Valjoly is only two hours from Lille and Reims, and Belgium's capital city, Brussels.



All cottages come with:
- Fully equipped kitchen with hot plates, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and extractor fan
- Comfortable living room
- Spacious terrace
- Double or single beds
- Bathroom / separate toilet
- Baby cots and baby chairs (to book directly at the reception of the residence).


The Cottages

The ideal place to recharge batteries and enjoy the great outdoors, Les Cottages de Valjoly are spacious and airy, with stunning views over the grand lake (for specific cottages). These traditional wooden cottages are designed to fit with the landscape and the natural activity-based holiday this resort offers.

Cottages sleep two to eight guests, with modern neutral décor, large windows, and terraces with outdoor furniture, allowing guests to make the most of the fresh air. There is a cosy living room and fully equipped kitchen in each, complete with hot plates, a microwave, fridge, dishwasher and extractor fan, great for a self-catered stay.


Board Options

Les Cottages de Valjoly are all self-catered so guests have total freedom to cook and eat what and when suits them.
There are five restaurants within the Valjoly resort, serving traditional French and Belgian cuisine, as well as international favourites. A small grocery shop nearby sells essentials for that all-important picnic, or guests can jump in the car and travel to one of the nearby towns for supermarkets, and a more extensive range of restaurants.

For a break from the rat race, head to the Valjoly lake on the edge of the Ardennes region, in north-eastern France. With the huge lake and extensive woods of the Avesnois National Park, Valjoly offers excellent activity-packed holidays for families, couples and groups. Aside from energy-fuelled things to do, Valjoly offers time for relaxation and contemplation, surrounded by the beautiful French countryside, and warmed by a mild climate and generous sunshine.

Just two hours from Lille, Brussels and Reims, and half an hour to the large town of Maubeuge, the Valjoly resort offers plenty of opportunities for guests looking to enjoy both the range of activities on site, and the surrounding area of the north-east of France and the west of Belgium.



With such a gorgeous lake, many of the attractions at Valjoly are focused on the water. Take part in sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, and pedalo trips, or head to the two outdoor and one indoor swimming pools (all chlorinated). There's a wave machine and slides, although note the strange rule that bans swimming trunks - only lycra-based swimwear is allowed in the pools! The swimming pool will be open end 2020 27 June indoor and 4 July outdoor. When it's time to dry off, explore the pretty grassy areas and dense woods of the Nostrimont forest with the extensive walks on offer. Take a picnic and find a dappled spot to enjoy an afternoon snooze in the warm weather. There are bicycles for hire, and animal lovers will enjoy horse riding, which includes splashing through the shallows of the lake. Take to the trees with a tree trek adventure course, take aim with archery and laser tag, or enjoy a game of mini golf. There are also trampolines, and the resort also offers a freshwater aquarium, with 50 species of local fish to spot and learn about.


Things to see
