Enjoy “The Chariot à fondue”, the first horse-drawn restaurant in Belgium
The horse-drawn cart pulled by “Ardennais” horses is waiting for you in front of the church of Porcheresse. A quiet little village in the heart of the Ardennes. Before boarding the cart equipped with tables built specially for the fondue kit, the diver explains the safety rules. Time now to greet the horses, the main actors of this exceptional “tasty”, original and 100% eco-friendly experience. No music on board but the sound of hooves on the pavement!
It is time now for an aperitif with appetizer before enjoying the fondue that comes with other local delicacies. With Ardennes Trait Gourmand, there is something for everyone. You can choose between a meet fondue, a cheese fondue, or a combo and even a chocolate fondue. All ingredients are from local producers or homemade!
The principle is simple, you are your own chef and prepare your fondue and enjoy it during the ride. An original way to combine the pleasure of a meal with the joy of eating in the open air and at the rhythm of the horses' pace. On your way, you will find forests, rivers, meadows and beautiful villages where most of the houses are built of local stone.
A few moments later, our carriage stops, and it is the turn of our rustic horses to have a bite to eat! On the way back to our meeting point, time for dessert before a stop in a café with old-fashioned charm to sip a coffee or a tea.
