Description from owner

Description

Located on the banks of the River Bocq, three kilometres from the town of Ciney, this recently renovated and extremely well appointed Chateau Alois was once the home of the Bishops of Luik. It dates back to the 12th century and remained in ecclesiastical hands until the 17th. Being only a short drive from Calais and Brussels, and sleeping up to 35, it is today, the perfect venue for family holidays, reunions and celebrations.

Its ten hectares of grounds include an extensive park with century old trees and its lake and woods are perfect for fishing, canoeing and swimming, walking and cycling trips. The Chateau Alois itself consists of 750 m² of accommodation made up of the main building and two wings that surround the courtyard. Almost all of the bedrooms are en suite and there are numerous reception rooms of various sizes including five very large rooms that can be used for parties, conferences and dining.

Location description from owner

The Ardennes region

The Province of Namur
Picturesque, cultural and historic, Namur is perfect for both nature and culture vultures alike. It has a colourful range of tranquil woodland, pasture, valleys, small lakes and meandering rivers as well as a strong cultural heritage. Activities include walking, mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking on the River Lesse, golf, and if you need an adrenalin kick, there's delta-flying, rock climbing, caving, quad-biking, karting, and adventure trailing.

Ciney

Namur
Namur, the capital of the Province of Namur is also the political capital of Wallonia, the French speaking southern part of Belgium. The city has a population of 105,000 and is located at the confluence of the Rivers Sambre and the Meuse. Both rivers are major waterways, and thus, the city has had a military significance in centuries past that guaranteed continual assault from Roman times through to the Second World War. As a result of having been leveled time and again, the antiquities in Namur are relatively sparse. Nevertheless, the city is large and important enough to offer the visitor a wealth of diversions.

By far the greatest monument of Namur is the Citadel. The Citadel served as a strategic bastion, attracting many attacks and subsequent reconstructions. Today the Citadel is accessible by a winding road, the "Route Merveilleuse" or by cable-car. From the summit, are beautiful views of the city, the River Meuse and the Sambre Valley.

One of the most awe inspiring buildings in Namur is St. Alban's Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint Aubin) Built between 1751 and 1767 it shows an Italian influence.

The Meat Hall is another impressive monument. Located on the banks of the Sambre, it is one of the most important archeological museums of Wallonia. This building was constructed between 1588 and 1590 and is made from brick and blue stones.

The Convent of the Sisters of Notre Dame (Couvent des Soeurs de Notre Dame) on the Rue Julie-Billiard is home to some of the most important and beautiful art treasures in Belgium. This splendid collection of religious artifacts was made by a Friar Hugo for the Priory at Oignies. The treasure daisplays the amazing level of skill and artistry achieved by the goldsmiths and artists of the Meuse Valley which preceded the French Gothic style.

Also worth a visit is St. James Tower. Built in 1385, it is Namur’s only belfry tower. Located on the 'Place des Armes', it watches over the city and was used as a lookout for the city.

Outside the city we recommend visiting the caves of Han and La Merveilleuse (Dinant), the Gallo-Roman ruins of Malagne, the ruins of Montaigle (Falaën), Freyr and Lavaux-Sainte-Anne castles, the Gardens of Annevoie and some of ‘Les Plus Beaux Villages de Wallonie’ (Wallonia’s Most Beautiful Villages) such as Celles.
