La Distillerie Castle

The ruins of La Distillerie Castle, locally known as Château de la Distillerie, lie in the rural village of Bovesse, in the province of Namur in the Wallonia region in Belgium.

The castle would have belonged to the d'Oultremont family of the lands of Vaux, from 1450 till 1725. The remains we see today are dating back to the 16th century. I could not find any more historical info; so if anyone has more please mail me.

Some years ago the castle was up for sale for € 410000. I presume it was sold because recently I saw some pictures on the internet which showed that the entire site has changed; all the undergrowth and weeds were removed and the buildings were partially restored. So, it isn't located in an abandoned park anymore but I don't know if it can be visited.
