The Castle

The castle was built in the 13th century as a medieval fortress. It has been transformed over the centuries into various architectural styles before becoming the luxurious French-styled stately home it is today.

The interior dates from the 20th century but has preserved its baroque style from the 18th century. There are 12 accessible rooms – each furnished with exceptional furniture as well as artworks and artefacts that reflect the changing fashions between the 15th and 19th centuries. The masterpiece is the Library with its wooden panelling and warm and glowing atmosphere that has often been likened to other prestigious locations, such as the library of Trinity College in Dublin.

Other rooms, halls, cellars and stairways can also be used upon specific request.

The Gardens

The gardens of the Château de Beloeil display two different styles. The first, and the oldest, harmoniously alternates between water and greenery in the French style. Here, symmetrical paths, geometrically shaped ponds and an imposing perspective have been carefully preserved based on original plans dating from 1664. The epicentre is marked by a large and majestic pond that faces the castle. When the water is calm, the pond gloriously reflects the castle. From the far end of this water feature, you can view the castle in long perspective.

Although antechambers surrounded by arbours still exist, a new fashion appeared between the 18th and 19th centuries that saw the birth of the second part of the gardens, the English garden. This new architectural style offers a bucolic landscape typical of the grand gardens of British castles. There are also old ruins, reminiscent of gardens of the Romantic era.
