Town of Vresse-sur-Semois (Province of Namur)Ardenne

Lying on the left bank of the river Semois surrounded by greenery.

It was once a thriving tobacco-growing area. Most of the houses occupy two parallel streets on either side of the church. Built of locally quarried schist, the small farmhouses have distinctive façades of wood, stone and brick.

At either end of the village there is a listed water trough and the added charm of a former wash house nearby. Guided tours of Laforêt can be arranged.

The association "Les Plus Beaux Villages de Wallonie"

Created in 1994 and inspired by the French equivalent, the association "Les Plus Beaux Villages de Wallonie" awards its label to the most beautiful countryside sites of Wallonia.

Listed buildings and outstanding patrimony (in a preserved environment) go hand in hand with the inhabitants' will to share their quality of life.
