The nature reserve of the Haute Sambre is only 10 min walk from our home (size is already more than 70 ha) and you will discover a lot of birds, wild gooses, mallard ducks, grey herons and even horses !
In our old village, you will discover an old lock on the river, that can only operated manually. It’s only a 2 min walk away and its worth a visit…many others are now of course computer-driven
In Solre Sambre (5 min by car) you will find a very old castle built around 1200.
But there is more to see ! There is even a Roman bridge in Montignies Saint Christophe, it is verrrry romantic…
A few kilometers further, you can admire Lobbes and his collegial church and the very beautiful Garden of Folcuin with medicinal herbs. Thuin and his hanging gardens, Binche and his carnival (oral and immaterial world heritage).
If you go a little more further, you’ll be dazzled by the very old Abbaye d’Aulne.
