Grandvoir Castle is a castle-farm. Built in a square with local stones, it was converted into a charming and luxury hotel 7 years ago. Located at the southern tip of Belgium, 1h40 from Brussels, the trip offers a real change of scenery. You will spend a comfortable and relaxing stay in the countryside. A real breath of fresh air.
The hotel has 8 rooms of different ranges including a family room (3 children). With the help of the interior decorator, Angelique Vandeuren, the owners of the hotel have renovated the farm-castle with taste and respect for the soul and the history of the place. You will find the original floors and beams. On the ground floor several comfortable lounges are available for you to relax (except during Covid-19). The garden offers a picturesque natural pool full of life and with a little luck you will see some deers.
The hotel also offers a gastronomic restaurant, run by Chef Tristan Martin, former starred Chef of Lavaux St Anne.
The owners also brew their own beer, the “Vaurien” in the Chateau Grandvoir. You will therefore have the opportunity to see the brewery and taste the beer at its place of production.
Breakfast is served as an option (18€). It is composed of local and seasonal products.
It is also possible to dine at the gastronomic restaurant, we recommend it (book in advance).
Finally, if you are looking for a private or professional event space. The Chateau Grandvoir also has a venue/event room: a room for a dinner and cocktail party for weddings or other events and a bar and lounge for smaller events.
We met Barbara, a charming host who is in charge of the management of the hotel and may welcome you on your arrival. Barbara and her husband are the owners and at the source of this ambitious project. Indeed, when they bought the castle-farm, it was in ruins. An important restoration work has been undertaken in order to bring back to life this little piece of heaven in the middle of nature.
Barbara and her husband are sensitive to their environmental impact. A truly local and sustainable approach has been taken. The restaurant's kitchen and breakfast are largely made with food from local producers. The area is rich in cheese and meat, but also in trout and crayfish. In addition, the hotel has its own water well and a windmill which enables it to produce electricity, notably for the brewery.
Finally, electric terminals are available for electric cars.
