Rochefort is a municipality rather than a town. I have visited the caves at Han-sur-Lesse, and enjoyed them. You could combine this with a drive through the Ardennes, which is very pretty (forests and hills), and have a stop in La Roche-en-Ardenne, which is also a nice town to visit. Good luck!

I was also going to put the caves on our list of things to do while 'driving around France' in August. We have (well NZ has)a very well known cheese maker/writer Will Studd. He has written an article in this months Australian Gourmet traveler magazine. I've found this website hope it helps......

And for us its a case of "Two Birds, One Stone" Dh has already planned that we will drive across the Millau Suspension bridge. I've google mapped it and its around 30min from the Rocquefort Caves.

Sorry, correction - Rochefort is a town and a municipality. Han-sur-Lesse is in the municipality. Sorry if this threw you off the scent!

aussiedreamer - Sorry, I'm talking about Rochefort in Belgium, not the cheese making region in France, about 80 miles south of Brusells.

lavandula - Have you been to the castle ruins or the archaeological park? What about the Chapelle de Lorette within the town? We were thinking of just spending a day walking around the town, but we'll probably go to the caves also.

Hi isusie,

Sorry, can't help you out - but I'd love to know about Rochefort if you do go there!
