Apartments in the heart of the Ardent City...
Liège, also dubbed the Ardent City, abounds in activities and cultural sites to visit. A city renowned for its characteristic dishes – Liège meatballs, Liégeois coffee, Liège waffles, or even syrup from Liège – it will spark your passion and immerse you in its history. Bring your curiosity and set out to explore some heritage, on a journey like no other.
La Maison de Chestret is ideally situated : close to the city centre, the right distance away from the buzzing student nightlife that lights up Le Carré or the 15th August festivities in Outremeuse. If these places take your fancy, a short walk of just 10 minutes will acquaint you with the festive spirit of the Liégeois.
Undertake an artistic journey.
Liège offers an abundant cultural landscape. Each quarter is home to prestigious museums along varied themes, such as the Grand Curtius which houses art and history collections, or the musée de la Boverie which exhibits the permanent collection of the Fine Arts Museum. Aficionados of the lyrical art will be able to (re)discover iconic compositions at the Opéra Royal de Liège or premieres at the théâtre de Liège.
Step into Liégeois shoes...
... and go local ! Living true to their simpatico motto, "oufti!", Liège's locals are festive and delight in daily life's small pleasures. They always start their day with a little coffee at the corner bistro, savouring their moment of peace. On fine days, they stroll in the parc de la Boverie or visit the greenhouses of the jardin Botanique. If the weather is unsettled, the Liégeois always adapt : shopping trip , cinema , show … Towards dusk, they prepare their night-time adventures. A snack with friends, cocktails on the terrace and brand-new encounters. Over to you to plan your Liège outing !
