Luxury Magazine Issue 3

The third edition of Life in Style – our events and lifestyle magazine – has arrived!
We look back on a particularly successful period for the new Domaine La Butte aux Bois. Last year was filled with brilliant highlights – including the opening of our new Spa Retreat La Forêt, a second Michelin star for our La Source gourmet restaurant, and the reclassification of our Domaine La Butte aux Bois as Belgium’s first and only 5-star superior hotel. Great joys lie behind us and we look forward to the coming months in the tri-region’s spa, gourmet and lifestyle hotspot with even greater anticipation. Ahead are dazzling events, charity events, delightful dance events, first-class gourmet highlights and of course exclusive pampering moments.
