  • The most beautiful villages of Wallonia

Gros-Fays, perched on the side of a hill that drops down towards the river Lesse, is a typical Ardennes village. Its little houses, built mainly of schist, 16th-century fortified farm and former mill exude an air of timeless peace sure to delight you.

An enchanting cultural heritage

One of the village’s most attractive features is a fine beech forest, offering fantastic views of the Semois valley. Down the slope are disused old shale quarries and agricultural warehouses where locally-grown tobacco was dried. A real journey in time...

The Lesse river

A fantastic way to see the region from a different angle: why not kayak down the Lesse, between Poupehan and Bohan? There is a variety of options to choose from (from 7 to 25 km in distance) and splendid landscapes to enjoy.
