Our history

A family establishment

Facetune 26 07 2023 00 49 02 Min

Let us tell you a touching story : that of the Petta family, who came from Italy with courage and determination to offer their 5 children a better future. In 1970, Filomena and Michele Petta left their native Molise to find decent work and raise their family.

Mr Petta’s hard work in the mines and Nonna Filomena’s talent as a seamstress paid off. The Petta Group was born in the 1990s, bringing together several companies and employing over 400 people.

In 2009, the hotel adventure began when the family discovered an abandoned establishment for sale. Despite the challenges and their lack of experience in the hotel business, the Petta family took up the challenge with passion. Pauline Petta has played a key role in this transformation, from working in the kitchen to managing the business.

The DHF is much more than a hotel: it’s a warm, family-run SME that proudly employs 80 people and holds the title of Belgium’s highest hotel. A story of perseverance, success and family love.

An extraordinary nature

The vast park surrounding the hotel invites you to take a stroll in the heart of the Ardennes. With its exceptional location in the heart of nature, Le Domaine des Hautes Fagnes is the ideal starting point for beautiful walks, mountain bike rides and ski tours. The cross-country ski trails are at the rear of the hotel, and the Ovifat downhill ski slopes are just 500 meters from the hotel. So you can ski in Belgium and stay right next to the slopes.

Our alpaca park

Native to the Andean highlands of South America, alpacas were domesticated by ancient civilizations such as the Incas for their precious wool. Today, thanks to recognition of the quality of their fiber, they are bred in various parts of the world.

In pet therapy, their peaceful nature and interaction with humans have a therapeutic effect, helping to relieve stress and anxiety. Discover our activities in the company of these wonderful animals.
