Assenois Things to Do
This is where I used to play when I was a child. This is a private castle so you can't normally visit it inside. But as it's just behind my parents' house and kids of my age were living there at the time, I was lucky enough to go inside many times and also to take benefit of the surrounding nature (forest, wild life, ponds, geese, fields, ...).
When I go and see my parents for a week-end or only for one day (only 1,5 hour drive from the capital), I enjoy even more than before going there for a walk, especially when it's been snowing ;-)
A way to discover the region
This website contains all infos about the walks, activities, accommodation, festivities, etc. that are possible in the heart of the Ardenne. Very useful.
The surroundings of the castle
The castle is surrounded by trees and a few ponds are to be found at the entrance of the forest. There is also a bigger lake further in the wood.
Doesn't it look great when the water is frozen and the geese can walk on it ? I like this picture so much !
