- The most beautiful villages of Wallonia
Town of Assesse (Province of Namur)Condroz
This charming little village, perched on two hillsides above a narrow wooded valley, has retained numerous dwellings and small farmhouses made of sandstone or whitewashed limestone from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
Lapped by the river Crupet, from which it takes its name, the village has made ample use of its fast-flowing waterway, as witnessed by its five mills, a stationery factory, saltworks, oil mill, forge and – being Belgian – a brewery.
Guided tours can be arranged.
