A village between water and gardens

Between two steep hillsides covered with maple groves, the Eau Blanche flows as mistress of the area, embracing the small village of Lompret in its pure meander. Everything is natural here, and the village is nestled in this setting of greenery and the rugged limestone cliffs of the “Franc Bois“. Occupied a long time ago by the Gauls, then the Romans, the village was built on the traces of an ancient feudal castle of which only a few ruins remain today. The long limestone houses from the 18th and 19th centuries are resting on a wide avenue, not far from the parish church of St. Nicholas. A magnificent 18th century bridge links the two.

The serenity of the place invites you for a stroll, an opportunity to discover a prestigious natural site that constitutes one of the jewels of our Walloon heritage: the presence of one of the rare native yew reserves. A legend recounts that any Roman soldier who died in a foreign land had to be buried with the yew berry taken from his native country to benefit from eternal rest. But that doesn’t matter, a good local “Escavêche” (local fish dish) savoured in the village restaurant will allow you to think about it.
