Along the way …
The paths laid out in the leisure park lead to Olly, a former border post surrounded by forests. The peace and quiet that reigns here today is in stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the 19th century, when trains brought tourists to taste the delights of forest walking or simply enjoy a beer in one of the taverns. The trip on the “Bouillonnais”, which ran between Bouillon and Sedan, took two hours, a real local train! It also served the industries of the Givonne valley, to which the lakes and old races along the route bear witness even today.

C - Olly castle Voir sur la carte
Olly, which lies in the commune of Illy, is a picturesque little valley watered by the sources of the Givonne, which seems to have been created especially for dreams and peace. And yet, in three-quarters of a century, this place knew tragic times near an old 19th-century spinning mill called the castle. A panel on site explains what happened here during the wars of 1870 and 1939-1945.
