Château de Méry

Méry-sur-Oise, France

Francois Mathieu Mole (1705-1793), Chairman of the Parliament of Paris, did redesign the Renaissance castle and replant the park, it's said that it was on the advice of the naturalist Georges-Louis Buffon (1707-1788). Looted during the Revolution, the gardens were redesigned in 1846 by Louis Varé Sulpice (1808-1883). Now owned by the town, the castle park, covering an area of twenty-seven hectares, offers the public its majestic spaces deployed around large ornamental ponds. Recently renovated, the botanical garden experiment, created by landscape architect Pascal Cribier in 1999 around the water cycle, is open to the public.

What a wonderful location! The castle is the perfect place for learning and training, with ample, quiet rooms that are very comfortable. The staff is friendly and welcoming, don't hesitate to ask them for advices! Important - there is no AC in the rooms, but they provide fans to dissipate the heat. The food is simply outstanding. Wi-Fi is available everywhere. Fantastic experience!

Beautiful! ...and a perfect blend of preserving the old while non invasively bringing in the modern comfort and convenience. Great food, drinks and games to keep entertained when it gets too dark to enjoy the lovely gardens.

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.
