A little history

In Famenne, it’s good to live. The picturesque landscape, gently hilly, alternating meadows, fields and woods is punctuated by villages and remarkable hamlets (villages of Calestienne: Sevry, Wancennes, Honnay …). The rural architecture famennoise deserves that one lingers there.

Since the map of Ferraris (1770-1778), the distribution of habitat has not changed much, which adds to the charm of the region. In the fourteenth century, houses and farms were built in timber-frame and cob. Then, under Spanish influence, the brick succeeded the daub, leading to the so-called phenomenon of petrification and the disappearance of most of these witnesses of an age-old art of building.

Wancennes canned happily a few.
