Looked great! But we've been stopped right from the start as they do not accept credit card payment... Really disappointing that no one (not the tourist office, nor the multiple guides) told us about this "detail".More

Lovely old chateau that brings back an interesting in French/Belgian history. Though only a few of the rooms are open for viewing, there are treasures to been seen. The gardens are very formal so don't expect flowers. Nice drive to the Chateau along the river...More

Nice tour with information fully available in English. The chateau gives a good view of life for a family of the lower nobility in an incredibly scenic spot on the Meuse. Well preserved, nicely presented, with a fair admission price. Commentaries were more insightful than...More
