Castle ‘Froidcour’ at Stoumont (Belgium) (1)

The first castle at this site was built in early medieval times to guard the valley of the river Amblève.

Around 1600 a new castle was built on the foundations of the old one but that too was demolished and replaced by the present castle in neo-medieval style at the beginning of the 20th century (1912 – 1919)

The castle is superbly located, isolated and surrounded by vast forests.
