Welcome to la Howarderie
Dear visitors, welcome to our website. La Howarderie is a farm characterized by its original architecture that is situated in a region marked by its history of the Great War and green environment.
La Howarderie offers a restaurant, two party rooms and two different vacation houses, the accommodations ‘Le Fenil’ and ‘La Prairie’, for individuals or groups up to 50 people. They are both situated at the same address.
The green environment, the river ‘La Lys’, the farm, fields and grazing land are features of the surrounding landscape of the accommodation and offer remarkable views. It’s a great place to stay with a group of friends, school groups, organizations, sports clubs, tourists, the whole family and is even suitable for business trips.
