Château de Farcheville

Bouville, France

The Château de Farcheville was built by the Hugues II and Hugues III, Lords of Farcheville and Bouville. The great hall was built in 1291 and the castle chapel was consecrated in 1304. Both father and son were chamberlain to Philip IV of France. The structure possesses a rare northern French example of arched machicolations on buttresses, more characteristic of military architecture in the Languedoc. The castle passed to the family of Châtillon in the 15th century.

The castle has its own moat, hunting grounds, 15 bedrooms, 1,000 acres, and a helipad.

What a spectacular place to host 30 friends for a week of birthday festivities! Our hosts Conny and Sophie were so helpful in setting up all the details, and they made each of our guests feel welcome. The chateau’s authenticity combined with its modern conveniences made for a scenic and comfortable backdrop. The food was delicious and the staff were terrific. We can’t say enough good things about our time at Chateau de Farcheville. If you are planning a special event or a group celebration in the Paris environs, then look no further!

The worst experience, the deposit never returned to us again. Sophie the manager turned to be greedy person whom decided to keep our deposit with her with out a proper explanation and with complete ignorance to our inquiries for explanations. It’s a shame that such nice chateau is managed by her .

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
