sedan CASTLE,
100% ECO-FRIENDLY

Who said historical heritage and sustainable tourism don't go together?

Certainly not the Castle's managers, as they act for biodiversity, protecting bees by installing hives on the roofs. As a bonus, you'll be able to taste the "Castle Honey", on sale at the boutique soon.

To take things further, since 2017, the castle grounds maintenance is taken care of by 2 sheep! A great way to contribute to sustainable development.

Feeling hungry? The Café Turenne inside the fortress proposes Ardennes beers and open sandwiches made with raw produce, much of which bears the Ardennes de France quality label.

You'll also gain a better understanding of the ecosystem, as well as the first human activities associated with the very first local populations.
