Made of stones and gardens

Amidst imposing farms and plush houses flanked by magnificent gardens, the Saint-Lambert church has decided to lounge around on its hilltop. The square farms remind us that the village of Mozet was alive in the time of the Lords: the Douxflamme Farm, the first mentions of which echo the presence in this location of a tower in 1289 belonging to the Lords of Mozet, the Royer Farm (listed tower), and the Mozet Castle located a little further away on the heights. In the past, these farms were the main focus of agricultural activity. The buildings, made of grey limestone and black slate roofs, give the village particular uniformity and charm. In fact, the old centre is listed. A small, quiet stream, the Tronquoy, courses through the narrow streets.

On the outskirts of the village, nature is everywhere: meadows, copses and woods complete this rural and relaxing landscape. A 4 km interpretation tour with educational boards will guide you through the village. A detour to the hamlet of Goyet will complete your visit. There are grottos and caves, as well as listed rocks at the place called “Les Forges.”
