Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The cottage is located on one of the most beautiful green hills of the Flemish Ardennes. The view over the city of Ronse and the hills of "Le Pays des Collines" in Wallonie is splendid. Here you can enjoy a calm and quiet surrounding without being isolated.
The location of the cottage is great to plan visits to beautiful cities like Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp, Brussels, Oudenarde, Tournai and Lilles. Even Paris is only 2.5 hours from here.
We are very close to extremely famous cycling routes (Tour of Flanders).
The cottage received three stars from the Flemish department of tourism. The cottage also received the label Bike Friendly Resort .
Nearby there is the lovely chapel of Wittentak, that was elected as the most beautiful nature spot in Ronse.
In walking distance you can find the mill of Hotond, the highest spot of Flanders. From there you can enjoy a marvellous view from Ghent to Tournai.
There are several walking paths and mountain bike routes passing in front of the door, as well as a GR-route (Grande Randonnée = Long Distance Route) nearby.
The name of our cottage means in Spanish:” She who takes the sorrows away". We invite you to come and taste the wonderful and authentic energy of this more than 200 years old farmhouse. Children love it and call it the "Dwarfs' house".

The central bedroom is provided with an extra one person bed. The biggest room is seperated from the other rooms with a plain door, the other ones are closed with a curtain.

bed in the reading room downstairs.

"Great for a short break"
We were looking for a good base for a long weekend break for four of us (two family couples), in easy reach of Ghent. What we found in La Quitapenas was one of the most relaxing places we have stayed … More
Thank you! You were extremely kind guests! Hope to see you back :-)

"Well located 'quirky' accommodation with all amenities!"
Our family of four had a fantastic time in Ronse in this quaint old farm cottage filled with interesting antiques and curios. Plenty of space both indoors and outside in the garden. It's location for sightseeing is fantastic and as a first time visitor I can't sing the praises of Belgium too highly, everywhere is within a 90 minutes of the cottage and we'd recommend Tournai and Ghent and especially liked the steam brewery at Pipaix!
We are very happy that you had a great time!
