Mélin: fields & a white village
A short distance from Jodoigne, Mélin is hidden in a hilly agricultural landscape bordered by woods.
The brightness of this village catches the eye. Its rich heritage of buildings, most of which are made of local white Gobertange stone, gives the locality a bright glow.
Traditional buildings and imposing farmhouses with majestic porches, reminders of a seigniorial era, are dotted along the route.
Beautiful sunken paths and the many views over the vast Hesbaye countryside make this walk particularly attractive.
The association Les Plus Beaux Villages de Wallonie (The Most Beautiful Villages of Wallonia) oversees a network of 32 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.More information
