What to do
Here is a small list, far from being exhaustive, of local events and the main official sites of local towns.
For rainy days or if you do not feel like going out, we have several board games, internet, and a TV offering video-on-demand services and a Spotify account to listen to music.
During the beautiful summer evenings, why not take advantage of our barbecue and relax with friends, while enjoying a good glass of cider from the Montmédy region?
The town closest to the B&B, Montmedy offers some interesting annual events.

If you like bowling, you will find several lanes at Beau Rivage, Rue Ste Anne 1, 6767 Rouvroy, Belgium (about 15 minutes from Juvigny). Tel. +32 63 41 36 68
For friendly, impromptu and intimate concerts, we recommend The Oak Inn, in Breux (17 km from Juvigny), a small country music café that has its own recording studio (or vice versa) just after the French border not far from Orval. Music is very important at the Oak Inn. Very often, the musicians bring their instrument and improvise while sipping an English beer or a local Orval beer.
