Francorchamps area: A wealth of authenticity
A land of exchanges since Roman times, this warm-hearted region is the heir to a distinguished past. From the rampart walk of Franchimont Castle to that of Reinhardstein via the cloister of Stavelot Abbet or that of Val Dieu, history speaks to us and comes alive.
Away from it all is at the end of the street, at the corner of a mediaeval lane, along a river surrounded by gloomy forests, in the galleries of an old mine, in an old café aglow with human warmth.
A land imbued with genuineness, it invites exploration or lazing as you will. The welcome of its people, with their abundant kindness and simplicity of approach is something to be savoured. There to sample without obligation !
