Wallonia: postcards of the most beautiful listed villages
Visiting Wallonia’s most beautiful listed villages is a bit like stepping into a postcard. Each one showcases the many assets of this French-speaking region in Belgium.
Thirty of these villages are scattered across the WaIlonian landscape. Grouped together in 1994 by the « Most Beautiful Villages in Wallonia » association, these small towns, which are often well off the beaten path of most tourists, are the product of a strong rural identify that is steeped in regional diversity. This is a strong selling point that communicates the town’s local flavour and quality of life, which is well worth protecting.
Wallonia’s picture-perfect villages
These villages, with names like Lompret, Fagnolle, Falaen, Soiron, Crupet, Nobressart, and Vierves-sur-Viroin, are tucked away next to roads leading to a city hall, church, or chateau—the centrepieces of these exceedingly charming communities. Located alongside a river, in a natural park, or at the bottom of a valley, their green backdrops and rolling hills create beautiful, real-life postcards.
Breath-taking locales with unique character
Adding these villages to a list of historical sites is also an effective way of preserving the traditions and local flavours in Wallonia’s five provinces. « Road Vintage Experience » takes visitors to charming monuments, breweries, and invigorating hikes around Pays des Lacs. The bucolic setting offers endless opportunities for memorable strolls.
