The richness and diversity of Olnois housing will catch your eye, where modest buildings mingle with bourgeois houses in a play of contrast and colour.

Departing from the village, the walk will take you to Petit Vaux before climbing the Bois-d’Olne hill.

Your efforts will be rewarded by the magnificent views from the peak!

Two very different landscapes are there to contemplate: to the north, the Hazienne valley and the village of Olne, and to the south, the Vesdre valley and the wooded foothills of the Ardennes.
