What to do in Villedieu-les-Poeles Hambye abbey

Villedieu is an historic town that once housed various artisan trades ranging from lacemaking to metalworking. The various trades were carried out in courtyards that radiate from either side of the main street. These courtyards also housed the artisans and their families on the upper floors of the narrow houses. The ground floor of each house was the workshop. There are a number of museums in Villedieu that explain the various trades in more detail.
