We think it is very important that musicians feel at home during their session at DAFT Studios. A good vibe is at least as important as the technical facilities.
That's why during your session you will stay in our marvellous Artist Penthouse on top of the studios, offering incredible views on the surrounding forrests. This 8-person accomodation is included in the lockout rental price of the studio.
On entering the house you walk straight into a warm lounge area. At the left of the lounge, you'll find a completely equipped kitchen with kitchen stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher and all the mod cons.
Next to the lounge area there is a dinner room. Feel free to ask about our catering provisions if you don't feel like cooking!
Next you'll find four double bedrooms. Next to the bedrooms are 2 bathrooms for shared use. Bed and bath linen are provided for you.
You will see that our artist lodge is really the ideal place to relax after a day's work at the studio!
Modern scandinavian design and all the comfort you need. Welcome home!
Manufacture de Malmedy is a unique hotel build in a warm scandinavian style, hidden in the nature. 14 rooms with private ensuite bathroom, a sunny terrace, wellness accommodation with an indoor swimming pool, a sauna and a chilled area, a pool, a bar and a home cinema with a Netflix account.
If you need extra accomodation during your session, we have a total capacity of 40 persons. This gives you all the comfort you need for your recording session, writer's camp or preproduction.
Please enquire for complimentary hotel availability when you book your studio session.
Work hard. Play hard.
From time to time, one has to get out of the recording room and relax. Take a swim, have a sauna, or go for a good run in the woods surrounding the studio. You'll love it.
Love goes through the stomach. You'll want to marry our chef…
Our catering is not about molecular "haute cuisine" and gels and foams. We want to offer you an honest, traditional homecooked meal.
All our ingredients come from local farmers and markets, and we aim to use local products where possible. This means you get fresh milk from the farmer, locally farmed meat and wild game from the region during hunting season...
Tired of eating take-away chinese, pizzas or kebabs? Don't feel like shopping and cooking during your session? Ask us about our catering options!
Need some fresh air during your session? Walk out of the studio and into the woods...
The Ardennes, with its acres of forests, rolling hills, nature reserves and ancient stone buildings has a certain charm to it. The natural beauty and possibilities for outdoor pursuits - including Belgium's only ski resort- make it a popular tourist attraction. It also happens to be home to the thriving residential DAFT recording studios.
The studios lay amidst forests and hills. Even from the recording hall, you get a stunning view on surrounding nature.
