Holiday island Ile de Faigneul

Many things can be said about this campsite, about the location in the middle of nature.

The atmosphere on the campsite is as old for the REAL CAMPER, a cosy family campsite with many families with children during the school holidays, and nice and quiet during the low season, and in the bar …


The river
Holiday island Ile de faigneul is an natural occurring island in the river Semois. The source of this river can be found in Arlon and the river merges into the Meuse near Monthermé. The Semois is known for its meandering course. Following the water course the river is about 200 km long, but in birds eye view a mere 100 km.

The forests
Campsite Ile de faigneul is surrounded by forests which are part of the protected nature reserves of NATURA 2000. These forests contain both coniferous as deciduous trees, which cause beautiful differences in colours. It is an unending hike and mountain bike area, with many marked trails.

The animals
The forests of the Ardennes form a perfect habitat for many wild animals such as deer, wild boars, mouflons, foxes, squirrels, hares, rabbits, raccoons, lynxes and various bird species including raptors. On the island you can find owls, woodpeckers, songbirds, Eurasian nuthatch, ducks, swans, the beautiful blue kingfisher, ...

The river is full of fish such as; trout, pike, perch, carp, barbel, eel, etc. But also crayfish, beavers, otters and other aquatic mammals.


Atmosphere on the campsite
Because many of our guests are real campers, whom really enjoy the outdoors and are travelling from different countries, the atmosphere in the campsite is cheerful. The weekly campfire evening, in the high season, is always very cosy.
The fireplace is also a favourite hotspot on other evenings, especially for teenagers. The playground, table tennis table, boules lane and the sport field are meeting points for both young and old.

Of course the river is the biggest attraction for playing, floating and fishing.

Atmosphere in the bar
The cosy bar with terrace are very inviting. Belgium is known for its many beers, of which you can taste more than 30 varieties.
Of course we do not only serve beer, but also cocktails or a good coffee or tea, there is something for everybody. In the bar you can also play game of pool, mini soccer, darts or pick a game from our collection of board games, read our magazines.
But the best thing to do is meeting other campsite guests for a nice conversation and good music. During the high and Top season we also organise a children's disco once a week.

On the terrace you can enjoy the beautiful surrounding and watch the children play.
