As of 1 January 2020, Yannick Bouts will start welcoming guests to Domaine La Butte aux Bois in his new position as Director-Host.
Yannick, a 40-year-old Limburg local with extensive experience in the gastronomy and hotel sectors, was born and raised in Hasselt. After studying hotel management in Brussels, he went on to work for the Vermeersch family at the hotel group responsible for the famous Auberge du Pêcheur in Sint-Martens-Latem.
After opening and managing a prestigious hotel project, ‘Tafelrond – The Fourth’ at the Grote Markt square in Leuven, Yannick is now returning to his native Limburg.
La Butte aux Bois will be the new challenge he takes on in his home region and at a level that suits him so well.
Marc Alofs is therefore passing the torch.
For 11 years he led the team at La Butte, which is dedicated to pampering every single guest. His dedication, energy, and passion inspired many people around him to elevate La Butte aux Bois to the level of excellence it has achieved today.
A new challenge is waiting for him in Antwerp, where he will be responsible for opening and managing the luxury hospitality project ‘Botanic Antwerp’ in the historical city centre.
