Province : Namur
Commune : Doische
Surrounded endless preserved countryside, this village of the Fagne region is located remotely from the main roads which gives the streets a race sence of peace. The fifty houses that make up the village are grouped around the church and date mostly from the 18th and 19th centuries. Limestone or covered with traditional whitewash and toped by a slate roofs, they form generous public spaces. Here and there, a few tradionnal farmhouses are still active, so you might cross a tractor or two... The village heart is a great place to start a hike, following one of the rural or forest roads, leading to the Hermeton river and its tributary the Omeri.
