- The most beautiful villages of Wallonia
Nestled in a valley bathed by the Eau Blanche, Lompret was built on a former feudal castle. It kept its elegant atmosphere and grey limestone houses, built in the 18th and 19th century. This peaceful, green setting is well worth a stop...
A village between water and nature
Lompret was once a Gallic fort, a Roman one and finally a feudal castle of which a few ruins subsist today. The village, a real oasis, counts many trees, including beautiful yews. Take the time to enjoy a gentle stroll through the village's pretty streets and have a look at its stunning 18th-century bridge and religious cultural heritage.
Lompret is very invested in protecting nature as witness its many projects to preserve diversity. The Aquascope, just 3 km from the village, is set on the banks on the Virelles lake. This cultural centre and its discovery trail will tell you all about the rich flora and fauna of the region.
Breeding and biodiversity
The Petite Suisse farm welcomes visitors friendly. Hugues will share with you his passion for animals and present the various bovine breeds. Listening to him, you will understand the full scope of his environmental project, meant to protect diversity. Why not finish with a tasting of local products?
The Franc Bois
This site, listed as one of Wallonia's exceptional cultural heritage, is set on steep slopes. Its ecosystem is particularly rich (and features many yews, rare in the country): a real gem for nature lovers.
A gourmet stop by the water
The restaurant L’Eau Blanche welcomes all foodies joyfully. Its menu features simple but satisfying dishes, perfect to share with the family. One of them is a local speciality: the escavèche, fish marinated in vinegar. It's amazingly delicious. Choose a table with a view on the nearby stream and enjoy.
