Hotels & Lodging: Les Duves and La Classe in Belgium

December 29, 2010

Architectural photographers Jean-Luc and Anne Laloux have a sideline as innkeepers: the couple has renovated two properties an hour outside of Brussels and turned them into completely original guest lodgings. Les Duves is a former sawmill in the town of Bioul, and La Classe is a former schoolhouse in Denee. The traditional exteriors of the buildings are intact, but the Lalouxes have applied a contemporary aesthetic to the meticulously renovated interiors. For those fortunate enough to visit, the globe-trotting proprietors are a wealth of information on local artisans from cheese makers, small beer producers, and potters. For rental information, go to Les Duves or La Classe.

Below: La Classe is situated in the heart of the village of Denee, in the Anhee region; in a former life, the building housed both the municipal offices and the town school. We especially like the uniformly painted gray facade.
