Fallais Castle


fallais castle

Fallais Castle is a moated, square, lowland castle with round corner towers. Its structure is constructed entirely out of a limestone hardcore dating from the 14th and 16th century, laid out around a rectangular court.
The castle was built in the 13th century, near the Mehaigne stream, by a member of the Beaufort family. It had started out as a simple keep somewhere in the 11th century.
In 1882 the castle was restored by the architect Van Assche. He succeeded in preserving the defensive appearance of the castle but sacrificed the medieval character of its origins, such as the original drawbridge.
The castle is private property and it cannot be visited.
