Town of Somme-Leuze (Province of Namur) Condroz
Massed on the Southern slope of a rocky ridge, this village clings on to the slope before descending towards a brook winding its way through moist meadows.
It is a magnificent example of the architectural style practised in the Condroz area during the 18th and 19th centuries and presents us with a remarkable sensation of overall harmony, which is even more enhanced by conversions perfectly integrated into the traditional constructions.
The street area, punctuated by small outbuildings and annexes is open and intrinsically rural in character. The grey and black tints of the limestone and slates dominate the over-all colour scheme.
Guided tours by reservation.
The association "Les Plus Beaux Villages de Wallonie"

Listed buildings and outstanding patrimony (in a preserved environment) go hand in hand with the inhabitants' will to share their quality of life. © asbl Les Plus Beaux Villages de Wallonie
