Built in the XVIIth century, the castle and its famous gardens can be found in in the village of Annevoie-Rouillon, province of Namur.

The estate, owned successively by the Halloy and Montpellier families was built in several stages, starting in 1627. The facade on the garden side reflects the architecture in favour during these different eras. The structure of the castle follows a slight curve, to nestle perfectly in the Rouillon valley.

The castle is not open to the public, but the XVIIIth century water gardens themselves deserve a full day-trip.

Designed in 1758 by Charles-Alexis de Montpellier who had travelled extensively through Europe, they showcase the harmony of a park inspired by a variety of styles: French strict perspectives, British creativity, Italian charm... Even more spectacular are the many water features, fountains, jets, waterfalls, streams and lakes adding to the magic of the place. No wonder these gardens are renowned for their beauty and cultural heritage...
