Fantastic and atmospheric state in a beautiful location. Worth a visit. Support Staten and Stinzen.

A beautiful piece of history with a beautiful forest. The area is ideal for beautiful walks. The kruidhof in Buitenpost is also worth a visit.

Prachtige buitenplaats en schitterend authentiek ingerichte vertrekken. Je waant je echt terug in de tijd. Heel bijzonder.

Weinig mensen ontmoet hier in de tuin. Of het is onbekend of de 1€ entree houdt mensen tegen. De architect heeft er wat moois van gemaakt. Het ontwerp is nog steeds na jaren te herkennen. Bijzondere elementen: een berg, hertenkamp, waterpartij en kruisbrug. Een uurtje of 2 kun je zo in de tuin doorbrengen.

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
