The Chèvrerie d’Ozo is an Alpine goat farm in the Belgian Ardennes, producing a variety of delicious cheeses. Visitors can meet the goats and learn about the cheese-making process.
Durbuy is a postcard-pretty town located on the edge of the Ardennes, on the banks of the Ourthe River. It’s a favourite of visitors to Wallonia, for its tiny cobbled streets and timber-frame houses.
