Its less than a month until I leave on my tour of France, Luxembourg, Belgium, and Holland. I pretty much have all of the logistics buttoned up, except finding an affordable place to stay within 20 km of Chimay. So this goes out to all of you with experience touring along the northern border of France, do you know of any places either in the immediate area of Chimay or between Chimay and Lille, France that I should check out. Thanks.

There is a campsite pretty much a stone's throw away from the centre of Chimay, that's where I stayed last year. It was clean, quiet and
pretty cheap too.

Not exactly a place to stay but a brand new reconverted railway track of 44 km between Chimay and Thuin: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Chimay-Froidchapelle-Beaumont-Thuin-Lobbes-old-railway-track
Some bed-and-breakfasts in and near Chimay (http://www.opt.be/tourisme/resultats.php?ID=701&CLANGUE=fr&T=HM&QUERY=00001U0VMRUNUIGRpc3RpbmN0IEEuSEVCUklEIGFzIEVMVE9JRCwgQS5OT01IRUJFUkcgYXMgTk9NLCBhLk5PTUhFQkVSR yBhcyBVUkxfQUxJQVMsIEEuQ09ERUNMQVNTSUYgYXMgQ09ERUNMQVNTSUYsIEEuTk9NQ09NTVVORSxBLm5vbWNvbW11bmUgYXMgb 3JkZXJieSxkZWNvZGUoZ3JlYXRlc3Qobi5jcmVhdGlvbl9kYXRlLHN5c2RhdGUtMTUpLCBuLmNyZWF0aW9uX2RhdGUsIDEsIDApI GFzIG5ldyAsIEEuQkVMU1VEQ08gRlJPTSBoZWJlcmdlbWVudHMgQSwgaGViZXJnZW1lbnRzX25ldyBuIFdIRVJFIG4uaGVicmlkP WEuaGVicmlkICBBTkQgQS5DT0RFTEFOR1VFID0gJ0ZSJyBBTkQgQS5TU1RZUEUgPSAnTScgQU5EIENBVEVHT1JJRU1FVUJMRSBJT iAoJ0dJJywnR0YnLCdHQycsJ01WJywnQ0gnLCdDRicp&INSCOM=56016) but without prices ;-(

Just gotta throw it out there.
Stay on a farm in a comfortable room for about 15 euros. In france, but only 1km across the border. Anyway you will have to ride that way to get to the Auberge de Poteaupre to drink some fine chimay beers for extremely cheap.
