The painter anf engraver Félicien Rops (1833-1898) was very fond of the château de Thozée, set in nature in the region of Mettet. After moving to Paris, the artist often mentioned the estate in his letters, describing his family life there to his visiting friends: Charles De Coster, Baudelaire, the photographer Dandoy, the painters Dubois, Lambrichs and many more... Elisabeth Rops, his grand daughter, lived in the château de Thozée until her death in June 1996. In 1994, she had created the Félicien Rops Fundation to keep his art and memory alive.
The inside of the castle is being renovated so is not accessible to the public at the moment, but the architecture itself and the green setting are worth a detour.
