The meander of Monthermé is marked as a “must see” on every map of the Ardennes; arriving by car, a very good view is from road D989, drive slowly and stop on one of the parking places a few km before arriving at Monthermé; I just can wish you a better weather than I had, but even with cloudy weather, it is beautiful; a wonderful view over a village nested in a green cradle. There are other stops on the road down where you can admire the hills and the forest; the oblique light under black clouds was beautiful when I was there (picture 2). Monthermé is surrounded by forests (picture 3). The Semoy river merges with the Meuse at Monthermé and in the village a few boats like the one on picture 4 are parked on the calm waters of the Semoy. Near the northern entrance of the village is a small monument (picture 5) commemorating an abbey where the monks were brewers (like many nowadays in Belgium) since the 12th century. The wind vane comes from the brewery; it was used like a chimney, for aerating the malting rooms of the brewery.
Directions: Montherme is 21 km North of Charleville, on D989, the road to Belgium
