Chardeneux: a small jewel in the real Condroz
Small in size but very lively because of its terroir and inhabitants, this village of the "true Condroz" has more than one asset to seduce you.
A 1.9-kilometre walk takes you through this village’s rich heritage and points of interest, and whose etymological origin means “Land of thistles”.
Silhouetted on the southern slope of a ridge below a wooded stem, Chardeneux stretches gently towards the hollow of the valley where a stream flows. The octagonal spire flanked by four bells of the beautiful Romanesque church leads you to the square, the heart of the village.
From there, charming little streets radiate outwards, which in the summer season are replete with flowers. The limestone buildings and slate roofs create a lively street scene. Built along the contours of the land, the limestone buildings covered with slate roofs create a quality architectural ensemble that enlivens the street space, thanks to the variety of volumes and the various outbuildings. As you walk through it, you will discover a peaceful village with combined agricultural and residential functions.
