On the borders of the Fagne-Famenne region of Namur, Soulme reveals itself to the most adventurous. Overlooking the wild Hermeton valley, this authentic village nestles atop a hill.

As soon as you enter the village, time seems to stand still. The traditional houses have preserved their original features by combining the grey tones of the limestone and the white of the plaster.

In the street, some doorways are still taken up by agricultural machinery.

Take the time to feel the pulse of this village and the surrounding nature to appreciate its qualities fully. It’s the ideal starting point for a leisurely stroll through the unspoilt countryside of Hermeton and the old views on display in the village!
