Château de Jannée, Belgium

Belgium’s everyday castles aren’t the kind you see in Disney World. Those castles are the stuff of fairy tales. In Belgium—as in much of northern Europe—”castles” are often large but homey buildings with tidy square towers, plump furnishings, and folksy nobility who welcome guests with cheery warmth.

Join me for a tour of three of the country’s friendliest castle homes, and meet the hospitable owners who live there—and rent out rooms to cover their expenses.

    In the early 1980’s on one of my trips to Europe I stayed overnight in a castle in Belgium and cannot remember the name. I was traveling by car from Bruges and Gent. Can you possibly let me know if there are castles in that area for overnight stays. I am a travel agent and want to send some of my clients there.
    Kind regards,

    I would get contact with the Chateau de Ramezee.
    I was guest in 2006 “Aider Autrui” was member of the organization of the Tombola.
    I was looking to find on the maps and later this Castle information. As I visit Durby the passed summer I didn’t find in my memory the way back to the castle. Finally I found it on the Chateau de Ramezee – Google.be with in all latest information.
