LAC GENVAL - Belgium

July 19, 2016

When my friend Claudie was here, we went to the Lake Genval (Lac de Genval) which is a lake located near Waterloo. The lake is a great leisure place for the people of Brussels. All around the lake there are beautiful houses from the Belle Époque. One of these houses is named Château du lac (Castle of the lake) which is now a five star hotel.

We walked around the lake  and then we had a coffee in one of the many restaurants which are located at the lake.

from our table we saw these geese.

These are mostly old beautiful houses which became in the last years very good restaurants/cafés. The view on the lake is very beautiful.

peeking through the bushes to have a glance one of the hidden manors

This manor had also horses and poultry

and was located at this little river.

It had been a very nice walk.
