Muriel and Bernard bought this superb residence in 2016. For several months, they worked tirelessly with the help of local craftsmen to restore its character of days gone by. Attributed to Alphonse Balat, architect of King Léopold II and master of Victor Horta, this imposing building dating from around 1900 displays unique architecture that leaves no-one unmoved. Its outstanding location on the banks of the Meuse, opposite the Walloon Parliament and the Citadel of Namur, make it all the more attractive. The interior, fully restored and richly decorated, is elegant down to the smallest detail. An impressive library is available to guests all day long. They can relax there and enjoy a hot or cold drink. A refrigerator is also provided. In the morning, breakfast in the owner’s sumptuous dining room overlooking the Meuse is a delight. The three rooms, all carefully decorated, are each dedicated to a 19th-century Walloon artist. So they are all very different, in line with the personality and history of the figures they refer to: Anna Boch, Alphonse Balat and Félicien Rops. In short Villa Balat, dedicated to art, history and heritage, is a magical place: at the water’s edge, on the RAVeL circuit, 15 minutes on foot from the historic centre and pedestrian area of Namur, it is also accessible... by boat!
