As the house is on the hilltop, the scenery is splendid and has an unblocked view of nature. Beware that since Le Gîte des Crêtes is at a higher altitude, so expect some walking on the slopes to go up and down to the Durbuy town if it does not bore you or make you tired.

Dated from 1862, Hôtel Des Comtes Durbuy has a magnificent view to die for based on my last visit impression. That would be my first choice as I fell in love with it at first sight. Located along River Ourthe in a quiet surrounding, what’s not better than to wake up with fresh air from nature and perhaps the crisp sound of the river flow?

I would not recommend you to eat at Hotel-Restaurant Côté Cour due to our disappointing dining experience with the restaurant on our last trip to Durbuy. However, to be fair, the prime location of the hotel for staying overnight in Durbuy is worth mentioning. It is indeed a charming hotel with a glass-panel on the exterior in the middle of the Durbuy town.
