The castle of Beloeil is surrounded by an enchanting domain of more than a hundred hectares. Around the castle with its prestigious art collections, there stretches a park in the french style, an XVIIIth century masterpiece. The entire domain of Beloeil has been given the status of major cultural heritage of Wallonia.
The Prince de Ligne’s family have been in continuous residence in Beloeil since the XIVth century giving the estate unique historical continuity. Successive generations have insured its lasting preservation.
In order to restore Beloeil’s original splendour, major works are necessary:
- Reconstruction of the moat and the walls surround the estate
- Careful upkeep of the ornamental lakes in the French gardens, Chevotet ‘s work
- Restoration of the statues, iforemost among which, is the famous Neptune by A. Henrion.
Every year, donations from enterprises and private individuals contribute vital support to the preservation of the estate. An example of this was the complete restoration of a Regency Boulle table in 2008 thanks to generous donors which included the Hotel le Plaza in Brussels.
The present needs of the upkeep and support of the estate calls for new and supplementary initiatives.
The creation of the fund: Fonds du Patrimoine du château de Beloeil within the Fondation Roi Baudouin meets this objective.
