    Our Passion

    La Truite d'Argent is created by the Dutch couple, Bob & Henja.

    People here come from all walks of life, but one belief is shared: our community should represent who we are and what we believe. La Truite d'Argent is a recreational community, an arts community and a community of people who love the beauty of nature and feel the need to preserve it. As you’ll see, La Truite d'Argent has many shapes, many moods, and many possibilities.

    The Belgian Ardennes

    La Truite d'Argent is located in the Belgian Ardennes and we offer 15 accommodations for 2-persons in the middle of the woods. Our venue has a capacity of 75 people.

    It's a 2 hour drive from Brussels, a 3 hour drive from Utrecht and a 2 hour drive from Koln.

    Invitation to the Blues - interpretation of Tom Waits songs

    Saturday 30 november, 21h:00

    Entree: € 12,50

    Normally we are never so fond of tribute acts. It often imitates the original and that's all.
    But 'Invitation to the Blues' is another cup of tea. They interpret a number of intimate Tom Waits songs in their own way. No worries, the wonderful jazzy and smoky 'Waits' atmosphere stays upright and fits perfectly in La Truite; MAGIC!

    Invitation to the Blues is: Udo Holtappels (piano), Steffen Pauws (bass), Marc Roosen (vocals), Wim van den Hout (cello) and Mario Graat (saxophone).
