- The most beautiful villages of Wallonia
Welcome to the heart of the Belgian Lorraine, in the province of Luxembourg, which you might mistake for Provence... Torgny, nestled along a forest, enjoys quite a gentle climate (perfect for agriculture and wine-making). Why not stop by and take a stroll in its pretty streets, discover its architectural heritage and enjoy Chef Clément Petitjean's restaurant, rewarded with a Michelin star.
A Mediterranean village in Wallonia
Indeed, thanks to a favourable microclimate and a gently rolling landscape... Add to this, buildings in warn coloured stone and red-tiled roofs and you could indeed think you are in the south of France rather than Belgium.
The climate is perfect to grow grapes. There are three vineyards to discover:
- Le Poirier du Loup
- Les Fouchères
Quite a few buildings are listed in the village: its chapel, washhouse and even two local traditional farms. The Raymond Mayné mature reserve, one of the oldest in Belgium, also is worth a detour. This former quarry shelters quite a fantastic variety when it comes to flora and fauna.
A festival dedicated to artists and artisans
This incredible fair gathering a hundred artists and artisans takes place every year on the third Sunday of July. Stop by to discover a fantastic range of terroir delights, meet local wine-makers, admire street entertainers and musicians...
La Romanette's passion? Quality dishes, made with fresh ingredients and served in a family-friendly atmosphere where everyone feels welcomed. It's the perfect place to try regional recipes: sausages, touffaye, cheese paired with a glass of Orval or gaume Beer.
Another fantastic address: Chef Clément Petitjean's restaurant, proud of a Michelin star. La Grappe d’Or's creative cuisine aims at finding offering a new interpretation of tradition and terroir. Even better: they also have hotel rooms.
