Surroundings

Located on the corner of Wijnstraat and Sint-Cornelisstraat, just five minutes’ walk from the Grand-Place de Renaix (Ronse) and a host of restaurants, cafés, bakers and shops, this superb gabled townhouse is hard to miss. It features an attractive façade that is finely crafted in the Flemish neo-Renaissance style.

Welcome to ‘Adelaide’, a house available to rent for your holidays in Ronse. Welcome to the vibrant heart of the Flemish Ardennes!
Renaix (Ronse) enjoys exceptional surroundings, which account for so much of its attraction. The city is located in East Flanders, close to the language frontier between Dutch- and French-speakers, facing the province of Hainaut. It is surrounded by the green hills of the Flemish Ardennes, a mere stone’s throw from the Pays des Collines (land of the hills), in Wallonia.

HIKING

The Muziekbosroute (two routes: one short and one long) and the Taalgrenswandelroute (a walk along the language frontier) are highly recommended for hikers.

Walkers and hikers are sure to find some ideas for walks and attractive circuits on the website: Hiking in Ronse.

CYCLING

The region offers more than 220 km of managed paths for mountain bikers. Keen bike riders are also in for a treat: no other region in Belgium offers so many bike paths. So it should come as no surprise that the top cycling races pass through here. Among them are the following ‘classics’, which are contested every year on the routes and cobbles of the Flemish Ardennes: Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne, E3 Harelbeke, the Omloop, and Tour of Flanders!

Activities in Ronse/Renaix

Renaix is a compact and relaxed city, an attractive place to live. Its wide streets and squares are great for a stroll.
Much of its charm is to be found in the original shops, friendly cafés and discrete restaurants.

The numerous Art Nouveau and Art Deco houses here are a reminder of the city’s rich past, especially as a textiles centre. Just a 10-minute bike ride away lies the Villa Carpentier, the only house to be built outside of Brussels by the famous Belgian architect and designer Victor Horta.
The Sint-Hermeskerk tower offers visitors an impressive view of the city and nearby hills. This church’s 13th-century crypt is just as remarkable – a sort of subterranean cathedral that is well worth checking out.

Renaix has undergone a real ‘Renaixance’. These projects include the modern TIO3 Textiles Innovation Open Centre and the all-new cultural centre De Ververij. You can find these visitor tips, plus a whole lot more information, in the links below:
