The surroundings...

Poupehan 800m:
A quiet holiday village situated on the banks of the Semois in the south of the Belgium Ardennes. Poupehan has a small convenience store, a few bars and a restaurant.
But also a beautiful church, a Maria chapel in a cave and an old wash-house you can visit.

During the 19th century until World War I the washerwomen from Poupehan cleaned the laundry for the people of Sedan. They used to do the laundry in the Semois, but around 1900 they did their laundry in one of the two wash-houses in the village. Only one is still standing. Poupehan was, and still is, known for the softness of its water.

Poupehan was also known for its tobacco, the island use to be a tobacco field. Unfortunately there are not many places left where tobacco is still grown, but the drying sheds keep the memories alive. Now a days these drying sheds are sometimes being used to store timber.
