Villers is a typical Gaumais village. Inside the village there is the Marche, small watercourse that marks the boundary between Belgium and France.

Villers already existed in the Roman times. In 1972 and 1973, excavations have been organized in “Le Bois le Baron”. They discovered 42 burials. The study of potteries and other found objects gave us the opportunity to date the cemetery from the 1st and 2nd centuries A.D. A castle already existed in Villers in the 6th century. Graves dating from the Franks times have been exposed. This castle, which is an impressive construction from the Middle Ages, broke down last century. There you can find a hotel named “Le Vieux Château”.

While wandering around the village, you can discover old farms dating from the 18th century as well as a listed manor house dating from the 17th century. On the « Place de l’Etang », in the middle of the village, you can see the fountain Saint-Gengoulf. This ancient building has been reconstructed in 1847 and houses the statue of the patron saint of the parish and holder of the church. On the opposite side we can see a manure pit in which we used to store the manure. The wood holding the roof comes from the ancient church that has been destructed in the beginning of the 1940-1945 war. Villers, near the Maginot line, has been partly destructed in 1940.
