Brabant Wallon

Located to the south of Brussels, this French-speaking province contains a number of delightful small towns and villages worth exploring, such as Beauvechain, Chaumont-Gistoux, Genappe, Grez-Doiceau, Jodoigne, La Hulpe, Nivelles, Orp-Jauche, Villers-la-Ville, Waterloo and Wavre. In between them is lovely undulating countryside with a fair smattering of woods. The whole area is criss-crossed by some lovely short or long-distance walks.
