Our,Between the two bridges, Our rests
Our and its river share a valley that has eroded over time. Typical of the Ardennes, the old low sandstone houses are well preserved. Walks and gastronomy compete for the moment.
To the north of the hamlet, a magnificent half-moon stone bridge spans the Our, a small tributary of the Lesse, and leads you into the valley and the centre of the village. There, about fifty old houses and farmhouses lead a quiet life. Mostly built in sandstone, these low houses reflect the typical Ardennes construction: a multicellular farm, a fenced farm, a small day labourer’s house… Dominating the village, the Saint-Laurent church has been listed as a monument since 1983.
The river Our has shaped a small rocky course between the village and the mill. There, a chaotic load of rocks impedes the course of the river. Slowly, its clear waters seep through the smooth stones, swirl in the dark gulfs, and form innumerable small waterfalls. On the steep hillsides surrounding the village, the forest dominates and offers cycling and walking enthusiasts the opportunity to discover a breathtakingly rich environment and landscape. Back to the village where the walks often end around a restaurant table because Our is also a quality gastronomic stopover with great names of starred chefs.
