VEVES

In the village of Celles,close to Dinant, you will find the fairy tale like castle of VÍves. The castle was built on a rocky outcrop in 1410 and although various alternations have been made none spoil the fairy tale outlook of the castle. The castle is still in the hands of the same family. Inside you can learn everything about the late medieval and 18th century life in a castle.
I visited the castle in July 2000 and enjoyed the 30 min guided tour. If you are in the neighborhood of Dinant then this castle is something you have to visit.
