The Shelf in brief

Our review

The Shelf is a 110m² luxury gîte located in the center of Bastogne, in the Province of Luxembourg, in southern Belgium. What we particularly like here is the absolute discretion, thanks to an independent entrance via a separate garage, the private sauna and the secret room. But what's in this room? That's for you to find out...

Marie is the charming owner of this B&B. After 12 years working as an engineer, she decided to take a 180° turn and finally make a living from her true passion: tourism. The revelation came during a coffee tasting in Costa Rica. From there, she began her search in Bastogne (her home town) and discovered an old bakery for sale. It was love at first sight! The result was The Shelf.

The luxurious gîte is a blend of relaxation, romance, secrecy and eroticism. You'll enjoy the following amenities: luxury bedding with giant king-size bed, private bathroom with walk-in shower, hospitality products, living room with comfortable sofa, Smart TV, fully equipped kitchen and bluetooth speaker.

In the heart of the gîte, discover an exclusive wellness area with sauna, infrared cabin, decorative fireplace, comfortable deckchairs and self-service aromatic waters.

Have you noticed the little bookcase? Press one of the books to open the secret room. Marie has designed this room to spice up your everyday life in a subtle, erotic way. We just love the idea. And, of course, we'll let you in on the surprise. Hint: take a look at one of the photos in the gallery above.

Another thing we like is the ecological aspect. Among the concrete actions taken in favor of the environment: rigorous waste sorting, no single-use plastic bottles, lighting provided mainly by energy-saving LED bulbs, and so on.

An optional breakfast is available for €30 for 2 people. On the menu: cheese and charcuterie platter from Boucherie Goosse, delicious jam, butter, 2 yogurts from Préai glacé, 2 fresh orange juices from Chez Maggy, 2 fresh eggs from Perma Ferme du Ponceret and pastries from Sébastien Brisy.

The Shelf is located in the Grand-rue of Bastogne, in the south of Belgium, close to numerous shops and restaurants. Discretion is assured thanks to a code and an independent entrance via a separate garage. In other words: you won't bump into anyone from start to finish.

Looking for a great romantic brunch in Bastogne? You've got to try Chez Maggy, just down the street from the building, and also run by the bubbly owner. For the evening, we're also partial to Mes Petites Gourmandes: high-quality Italian products, demanding standards, family management and a super-friendly team.
