Good measures in place for Covid protection. Had a great room that could not be faulted. Breakfast was only cold choice and basic. This really is a B&B. If you want an evening meal you have to book in advance or you get nothing. 'Booking.com' did make it look like a hotel, in my opinion, which it is not. However, for the cost and the fact we had to book very quickly as Belgium had just been placed on the Red list for quarantine it worked out just fine. Certainly did not compensate for a stay in Bruges but it was what it was and we were thankful we managed to get somewhere at short notice. Worth a stay.

Have now stayed here on three separate occasions and have been delighted each time by the warm welcome, excellent accommodation and outstanding food. This Chateau is a little gem of tranquility not to be missed. Nothing appears to be too much trouble for Francis and Cedric for which we are truly grateful. Looking forward to returning this year.

Spent 2 nights at this lovely chateau only 1 hour from Calais. Rooms really spacious and comfortable. Beds really cosy and fantastic heating system. Very quiet and slept well. Fantastic breakfast and very plentiful. Our dog was made very welcome and allowed in dining room. Spent a fantastic day on the sandy beach at St Cecile. Walked for miles. Perfect place for short break.and if you are looking for something different and a memory.

Ideal for ze eengleesh, French, German or Dutch as Cedric and Frederick excellent multi lingual hosts. Very convenient for overnight to/from Ferry/tunnel just south so St. Omer. Charming Old Château in little Village by the River. Lovely spacious rooms and highly recommend Dining as different (Belgian Food) and very good value. Steep stairs and no lift but I am nearly 70 and managed fine.

Beautiful chateaux. Welcoming hosts. Wonderful 5 course meal. Felt like a home rather than an impersonal hotel. Dogs welcomed and given treats. We all loved our stay and will visit again.

Arch of Constantine

The Arch of Constantine is situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. It was erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine I's victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312. Dedicated in 315, it is the largest Roman triumphal arch. The arch spans the Via triumphalis, the way taken by the emperors when they entered the city in triumph.

Though dedicated to Constantine, much of the decorative material incorporated earlier work from the time of the emperors Trajan (98-117), Hadrian (117-138) and Marcus Aurelius (161-180), and is thus a collage. The last of the existing triumphal arches in Rome, it is also the only one to make extensive use of spolia, reusing several major reliefs from 2nd century imperial monuments, which give a striking and famous stylistic contrast to the sculpture newly created for the arch.

The arch is 21 m high, 25.9 m wide and 7.4 m deep. Above the archways is placed the attic, composed of brickwork reveted (faced) with marble. A staircase within the arch is entered from a door at some height from the ground, on the west side, facing the Palatine Hill. The general design with a main part structured by detached columns and an attic with the main inscription above is modelled after the example of the Arch of Septimius Severus on the Roman Forum.
