Overview

In 1875, the young aristocrat, Arthur Merghelynck, purchased Beauvoorde Castle, which was falling into disrepair. The chateau is situated in the charming village of Wulveringem, not far from Veurne (Furnes). In true romantic style, Merghelynck had the chateau rebuilt in the way he thought it would have looked in the 17th century. Once completed, he built up a superb collection of furniture and works of art. He also developed the estate grounds to create a stunning new park. Nearly 30 years later, in his will, Merghelynck decided that time should come to a standstill at the chateau. His wish was granted. Welcome to the wonderful world of the aristocrat, Arthur Merghelynck! A very easy-to-use audio-guide in four languages (French, Dutch, English and German) is included in your ticket price. Guided tours for groups (in French, Dutch, English and German) are possible, subject to booking in advance. November 5 - March 30: closed Marched 30 - November 5: open

Amazing, no filters required. Go when it's sunny, blue skies and sparkling water...spray something to keep the bugs away though, lots of midges around the water.

This Kasteel is so beautiful, so small but so magical. There isn't a great deal else to do in the area but just take a drive and a picnic. It is well worth the photo opportunity.
