Mélin,Majesties in white robes
Coquettish and precious, Mélin's magnificent residences, all in white stone, stand at the edge of fields and woods. The light shows off, and the resulting sculpted landscapes are captivating.
Which of the sun-gilded wheat or the walls of Melin’s houses are brighter? It’s difficult to tell because each one likes to reflect as much light as the sun in the middle of summer. Mélin, it’s all that: a village well settled around rich agricultural plains and valleys, comprising several buildings made of local white stone, known as Gobertange stone. Among these buildings, there are small farms but also imposing farms with red and black tile roofs, particularly the Fortemps farm, the Cense du Seigneur, or the Hesserée farm, a reminder of a time when the lords reigned supreme.
But the stone is not all: the Gobertange stream and its tributaries, the ponds, the wrought iron bridges, the rows of willows and poplars planted along the paths and paved squares give the village a “very Provincial” sense of harmony. The church of Notre-Dame de la Visitation wallows in the middle of these little streets. Mélin also enjoys festivities: the wine festival, garden festival and artisanal exhibitions bring the village to life throughout the year. And gourmets are in for a treat because the village has a gourmet restaurant. Enjoy your visit.
