LA MAISON GÜTH
The Güth house in Hoste, a living witness to the 17th century, is 330 years old and has remained true to its period. It is a flowery "usoir" that welcomes you. The well and its drinking trough refresh this postcard image. On the small limestone path, the eye lingers on the half-timbering, a wooden weaving on a delicate beige façade. The red shutters and doors warm up this old lady. From room to room, the visitor goes back in time. Tools and utensils of our ancestors are waiting. The atmosphere is subdued and comfortable in the small living room, with low ceilings and small windows like in a cottage. The kitchen contains a Flemish fireplace and skylight. In the barn, a horse mill still echoes with the sounds of agricultural labour. Everywhere, the stone whispers stories of the past. A refuge for artists, its garden hosts concerts and shows several times a year. The music enchants while the taste buds enjoy a cool drink and a home-made pastry. The escape can continue in the arboretum, a collection of local and exotic species. A wooden bridge under the foliage offers the opportunity to continue along the paths of Hoste.
