Camping in Wallonia
42 in Belgium, Wallonia
To the south of Belgium lies a world of peaceful villages, welcoming locals, colourful carnivals and enchanting castles: Wallonia. The Walloons’ official language is French and the region's countryside is composed of woodland, moors, vast fields and grasslands dotted with streams, waterfalls and lakes.
Wallonia's best known area is the Ardennes, a region of thick forest punctuated by castles and citadels that extends into Luxembourg. It's at its best in springtime, explored on foot, on horseback or in a canoe. Beneath the greenery is a network of caves, carved out by the rivers and studded with stalagmites and stalactites, which provide a fascinating look at the geology of the region. Back above ground, you can admire the beautiful flora and fauna of the region.
Tournai is one of Wallonia's highlights - a charming town with cobbled streets and a grand medieval cathedral that fuses the Romanesque and Gothic styles.It's located close to the magnificent châteaux of Attre and Beloeil, and has several good restuarants where you can enjoy regional dishes.
