Hospitality, Gastronomy & Enjoyment: A Warm Welcome!

Located at the end of Paalsteenlaan, at the entry to the Hoge Kempen National Park, you’ll find an oasis of peace. Thousands of little lights in the surrounding grounds glitter like a fairytale before your eyes.

We will welcome you to our delightfully decorated Relais & Châteaux – Domaine with a glass of ‘Silver Pearl’, made using the Méthode Traditionelle at the nearby ‘Genoels-Elderen’ Château, accompanied by a tasty ‘arrival surprise’.

You’ll stay in our La Villa ( before Landhuis ), in the majestic Manor or in our completly new rooms in the La Forêt with a view over The National Park Hoge Kempen. In the morning, the breakfast team will be waiting for you to bring you gently awake and treat you to our Champagne breakfast buffet.

During the festive period, the Leopold & Boudewijn lounges will be available exclusively for our hotel guests. Come there for some peace and quiet, or enjoy your lunch by the open fire, with views out over the grounds.

Our receptionists are standing by with suggestions and information about the many and varied options you have for spending your day. They will be delighted to round out your stay in Limburg with all the right tips about Christmas markets, walks, theatres & museums, shopping & excursions. Enjoy winter in Limburg! Don’t forget to bring sturdy footwear, warm winter clothes and especially your skates!

The team at our Spa Retreat La Forêt will make sure your body gets the rest and relaxation it deserves. We provide holistic well-being, massages, facial treatments, signature treatments, skin rejuvenation, skin improvement, and dermato-cosmetics such as Botox and fillers. Your room rate includes unlimited use of ‘Le Gym’ from 7 AM to 10 PM every day.

Our culinary team can’t wait to spoil you during the festive period! Admire the beautifully decorated rooms and enjoy stylish entertainment. Enjoy the wonderful surprises of our carefully composed menus and sensational wines.

Chef Ralf Berendsen, our waiter, waitresses & sommeliers will be delighted to welcome you!

Come and farewell a busy year with family & friends as you unwind amid peace and quiet for body & soul?

We let your children shine with a kids’ breakfast & colouring competition.

There’s a special children’s menu. We also make sure that your children tuck into some wholesome meals. We’ll consult with you to find out how you best like your kids to eat.

Children become ‘Small Gastronomes’ at La Butte aux Bois by joining in the exciting activity tasks / journey of discovery through the hotel.

During the festive period, our Lodewijk lounge is specially transformed into a children’s play area, including TV, videos & games. Over Christmas itself (25th and 26th December) there is kids’ entertainment and Father Christmas will also be visiting La Butte aux Bois!

Our swimming pool is opened specially every day for the young ones: early until 9.00 am and later after 5.00 pm.

We can also provide a baby listening service for you (for rooms in our Manor only) or, if requested and for a small fee, babysitting.

Children just adore surprises! Father Christmas will provide a gift on arrival in the room, as well as a special ‘turn-down’ present!

A stay at La Butte aux Bois is a real feast for children & parents alike!
