Fortemps farm in Mélin
A traditional farm on a courtyard, in the heart of the beautiful village of Mélin.
In the heart of the village, this imposing farmhouse distributes its various volumes around a pleasant inner courtyard.
The facade, remodelled in the 19th century, skilfully combines colours and tones, travelling from the orange-red of the brick and tiles to the beige of the Gobertange stone. This stone, which has made the reputation of the locality, enlivens the composition of the façade by underlining certain architectural details.
The 17th-century main building, which stands perpendicular to the road, has an interesting stepped gable.
The association Les Plus Beaux Villages de Wallonie (The Most Beautiful Villages of Wallonia) oversees a network of 31 villages, bearers of a strong territorial identity and reflecting traditional architecture. It is committed to promoting the rural, cultural and natural heritage of Wallonia and is a part of the development of local and responsible tourism.
