“Sleigh bells riiiiiing, are you listening….”
It’s the 1st of December and the season has truly begun – the first door of #LittleStuff24, our 9th Annual Advent Calendar of Competitions, is now open!
Behind door No.1 is an unbelievable prize from ‘Visit Wallonia’ – a week’s family holiday in Belgium!
At around 2hrs away from Calais, Southern Belgium makes an easy choice as a short break option for the family. Unspoiled landscape, soft rolling hills and pretty villages, and some great fun filled ideas for Wallonia – the green heart of Belgium.
The largest body of water in Belgium is the Eau d’Heure lakes, near the French border. Families love the 30 miles of prettily fringed shoreline – perfect for cycling, walking and exploring the wildlife and natural beauty of the area. A kind of Wallonian ‘Lake District’ you can all try the water sports, and the hop-on-hop-off amphibious bus – The Red Crocodile.
If water sports aren’t your thing, then head for the wonderful PairiDaiza zoo and botanical park. Meet giant Pandas Hao Hao, Hui and their baby Tian Bao in the Chinese garden and the majestic elephants in Ganesha’s kingdom. With over 4,000 animals from all over the world including: giraffes, hippopotamus, white tigers, orang-utans, it’s no wonder that Pairi Daiza was voted best zoo in Europe in 2018.
Or perhaps you fancy a walk on the moon at the Euro Space Centre? Train like an astronaut and float around using simulators, build your own rocket or operate a galactic mission and learn to live like an astronaut in space.
Rounding off a year of commemoration of WW1 why not choose an educational and historic trip to the Mons Memorial Museum, which invites you to question the multiple, complex realities of the phenomena of war through the fates of the men and women who witnessed the events first hand, from trench warfare and poignant stories to occupied villages and the resistance.

They’ve spoken to the folks at Novasol, who are offering a stay in this gorgeous apartment set on a family-friendly holiday resort near Durbuy.
