Shops and Markets
In Wellin (5 km) you will find two supermarkets, Carrefour Market and Colruyt. Both are located on the left-hand side of the street ‘Rue de la Station’. To get there: at the Wellin roundabout take the E411 direction, that is Libin, Daverdisse, Tellin, Halma (N40). In Han-sur-Lesse (5 km) you will find a Spar supermarket. In Rochefort (11km) there is an Aldi supermarket and a Lidl supermarket.
If you’d like to have a nice day out shopping, we advise you to go to Namur, the provincial capital. Even though 55km is quite a distance, you will get there in less than 45 minutes by car if you take the E411. Take exit 55 towards the N90, direction Andenne/Jambes/Namur-Sud/Loyers. Avoid expensive parking lots and leave your car along the Sambre river on the street ‘Rue Bord de l’eau’.
Smaller towns such as Dinant, Rochefort, Marche-en-famenne, Givet (in France) are also a good option for shopping. In Givet and Marche -en-Famenne (25km from the campsite), there are big supermarkets and well-known brand stores. These shops are however not all in one place, and away from the town centre. In Rochefort (11km from the campsite) and Dinant (37 km) the area is more tourist-friendly and you can find local, smaller shops.
To get an overview of weekly markets you can ask for a printed version at reception. These markets and other flea markets or events are updated in our events calendar. Alternatively have a look at our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/leroptai
During high season we advise you to go to the evening market of Han-sur-Lesse which takes place every Friday evening from 6 to 10pm.
