In the area

The “Flemish Ardennes” region is located in the south of the province of East Flanders and is best known for the hilly landscape, beautiful nature, lovely villages near the language border and the many opportunities for sporting, cultural and gastronomic excursions.

In ‘t Wiel is easily accessible via the motorway and then the N60 towards Ronse. The central location between Ghent and Ronse provides many possibilities.

Oudenaarde and cycling are often mentioned in the same breath. Oudenaarde is therefore the cycling capital of Flanders. Grease that chain and your calves and brave the famous Flemish slopes… But a quiet (read: flat) bike ride along the Scheldt is also possible! 😉 As an avid cyclist, Philippe can recommend various cycling routes in the area for mountain bike, gravel bike and racing bike and GPX files of these routes can be provided on request. In addition, various cycling routes can also be found on or
