About Château Charles
This imposing castle was built in 1843 as a Grand summerhouse for a rich Belgium train tycoon. From its perfect setting high upon a hill above Pepinster it enjoys fantastic views over the rolling green valleys of the Ardennes. Still within easy reach of Liège, Maastricht and Aachen and only 25 kilometres from the world famous racetrack of; Spa-Francorchamps. Château Charles has recently been completely restored and redecorated to regain its former Victorian grandeur that can now be enjoyed by our guests seeking a quality, luxurious B&B, or a party venue for events and corporate affairs. The refined interior that is a mix of classic original and modern art-deco, creating a unique, warm and relaxed atmosphere that will make you feel at home instantly.
The facilities of the castle
Château Charles is a French castle in the heart of an English park that enjoys a very secluded setting, not far from the village of Pepinster but far enough from peering eyes… Stately on the outside but very warm on the inside with lounges featuring comfy sofas and log fires, perfect for reading or for socialising with friends. Château Charles also offers a large dining room with multiple log fires and even has its own art-deco bar. Upstairs there are three floors offering a variety of stylish but cosy bedrooms and suites all with their unique original features beautifully restored and enhanced with the modern comfort of box spring beds, luxurious soft furnishings and superb bathrooms.
Food and beverage
It is said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and at Château Charles we make it a special occasion every morning… Our guests have a choice of fresh fruits, yoghurts, cereals, various types of breads, ham & cheese platters as well as croissants and eggs, to be enjoyed in the wood panelled dining-room or in the conservatory. On warm sunny days you can even take your breakfast outside on the terrace or elsewhere in the park.
Since we are offering our guests a true home away from home, we can also organise evening meals or lunch (on request), a fully qualified French Chef and catering for private parties and conferences for up to 100 people. Nothing is too much, simply send us your request and we will aim to comply….
