This domestic farm is an outbuilding of the Villers Abbey situated South of the Abbey 125m high on the left bank of the Thyle river.
It used to be linked to the monastery by a road in the woods originating behind the old water mill.
The architectural grouping of the Farm dates back to the 18th century.

This is where the monks coming from Clairvaux settled in 1146 to create a new monastery.
