- Architectural heritage
The Château d'Acoz is set in the heart of the Biesme valley, in grounds with gardens, ponds, meadows, woods and hills. It consists of two wings to the South and East and a tower to the North East. It used to be a huge fortified quadrilateral structure. In the 12th century, the Acoz estate was a dependency of Floreffe Abbey. It became the property of the Marotte family in 1543 and remained so for the two following centuries. The Marotte family was ennobled in 1629. In 1760, the castle passed down to the family of Michel-Joseph d'Udekem. Finally, in 1860, the château was sold to the Pirmez family. In 2001, Tony Cammaert, an antiquarian from the Grand Sablon in Brussels, specialised in Japanese art, acquired the site. He has since then been restoring the castle and the estate with great care.
His dream is not only to offer a prestigious location for events, but a polyvalent, high quality space. Concerts, shows, exhibitions, conferences, seminars, birthdays, marriages can all be hosted in this enchanting setting.
