Experience the Pajottenland

Budding spring flowers, white blossoms of the orchards, sweltering heat above the hay grasses, winter ice landscapes turn the slopes of the hiking province of Flemish Brabant into the most beautiful paintings in every season. It's the perfect time to get vitamins and oxygen all year round  can be gained by taking a brisk walk or strenuous bike ride before you explore the cosiness of the B&B/holiday home or the terraces in the region.  

Look for nice places in our region. Whether it's walking or cycling, a culinary or artistic tour de force, or a modest memory of dark days; Pajottenland has plenty of assets to wow you with. 
We would like to invite you to discover this unique paradise piece of nature:
picturesque and imposing castles, surprising museums or authentic windmills...

You will also find plenty of breweries and gueuze distilleries, beautiful square farms with artisanal regional producers.

Action and relaxation, there is something for everyone...

The name Desert?

Strange name at first sight, but it actually isn't: it is a derivative of 'wastine', a wasteland, undeveloped area in the early Middle Ages and perhaps overgrown with grasses, heaths, shrubs and trees. Shepherds tend their flocks during the day. Until a few centuries ago there were such vast wastines everywhere in Flanders and Brabant.
