Renovation and restoration of the castle of Falaën
Year ︎︎︎ 2020 -
Status ︎︎︎ Permit
Surface ︎︎︎ 3,200 m²
The castle of Falaën is a fortified castle farm from the 17th century, built in local Baroque style. Over time, its defensive function disappeared and it gained more windows and doors. In the second half of the 17th century, the agricultural function took over. Today the castle becomes a family home. There are private family rooms, common meeting rooms and individual stays for guests.
The stables in the walled garden were demolished to make way for an orchard with local old fruit varieties. The old garden walls in the local blue stone are being restored according to their original profile. A swimming pool will be integrated in a fold in the landscape.
The castle is characterized by 4 expressive corner towers of which the 4th tower fell to ruin over time. To restore the original ambitious silhouette of the castle, the 4th tower will be rebuilt.
