Known as the former hunting grounds for Louis XIV, the Château d’Hassonville today is a placid castle which captures a beautiful view of the Ardennes region; an area brimming with a number of characteristic villages just waiting to be explored. With its 55-hectare private park, this château offers both a secluded oasis and a great opportunity to experience outdoor activities, such as riding in a hot air balloon, taking a pleasant ride in a horse carriage or, for the more adventurous, a Jeep Safari tour. If you fancy having something more romantic, several designed packages, like the ‘St Valentin,’ are at your disposal to treat you and your significant other like royalty. Be prepared to be spoiled if you choose this spot.
