Last weekend

Last weekend, I went away on weekend to the Ardennen. We visited the castle of Veves. It's an 8th century castle, with other parts build on the original castle later on. It was the stronghold of the Lords of Beaufort, and the residence to their descendants, the Counts de Liedekerke Beaufort.

On the way back to our staying home we made a stop in Dinant.

In the afternoon we had a guided walk, we passed the Belgian borders into France. We went all the way up a look-out tower
It was quite a climb, but the view was definately worth it.

Had a lovely brunch on sunday, and then back home (with first some sightseeing) we went.

In the neighbourhood you also find this lovely, but abandoned and decayed castle 'Noisy':
