Chassepierre,When the Semois takes centre stage!
Between Chassepierre and the Semois, which shines the brightest? Under the summer sun, the river dreams of stars while the village beams with the applause of the international street arts festival.
In August, Chassepierre teems with artists and spectators. This lovely village is the venue for the annual International Street Arts Festival. It is also a paradise for painters, who see it as a dream setting: the Semois river with its graceful curls wrapping around the village in its dominant white colours in a majestic green setting characterised by a first steep cuesta (hill).
The fairies must have bent over its cradle, and their traces can be found below the church: the “Trou des Fées” (Fairy Hole), an exceptional geological witness of the Tertiary era, is a network of underground galleries dug by man in the calciferous rock. Extending under the foundations of the old mill and joining the presbytery, they merge with the cellars. The “Trou des Fées” (Fairy Hole) and the ruins of the mill have been restored and integrated into a tour.
The mill, known as “ordinary”, is fitted out to receive theatrical and musical events… The 1702 church has a white plaster finish. The 18th and 19th century houses surrounding it make up an interesting architectural whole that invites you to discover it. Every Sunday morning, the farmers’ market takes place in the heart of the village.

Renowned for its International Street Arts Festival, Chassepierre also seduces with its idyllic setting cradled by the waters of the Semois.
Chassepierre most likely owes its name to the two Latin words "Casa Petra, " meaning "house of stone".
