In Gaume, at the gateway to the Ardennes, this setting of pure greenery lies by the Semois river. A perfect destination that combines nature, heritage and gastronomy.
Florenville is first of all an exceptional environment for nature lovers. And with good reason. If you aren’t familiar with the region, prepare to fall in love with the superb landscapes and vast wooded expanses! With a long tourist tradition, Florenville will also reveal its pretty villages along the water through a host of signposted walks. And that’s not all because here they know how to host guests: you can count on a warm welcome from the inhabitants, the flavour of the local gastronomy and the beauty of the heritage! All these facets make it a superb place to explore.
An incredible panorama
You can’t stop here without going past the pride of the town: the belvedere at the top of the church tower (50 metres high!). From here, your eyes will feast on a sumptuous view over the Semois valley, neighbouring villages and Ardennes forest. A vast panorama over 800 km² where you can also admire all the beauty just by sitting on a bench behind the church... If you’re fascinated and want to find out more, don’t hesitate to visit Paysalia, the Landscape Interpretation Centre and its visiorama. And if you feel like an original walk set off for the Servais trail, a lovely 3 km loop on foot, during which you can discover the region's birds through drawings by the famous illustrator Jean-Claude Servais.
