Crèvecœur
Castle

The Castle,
The farm, 15th century

Building registered in the Additional Inventory of Historical Monuments.

Originally, part of the building (on the chimney side) was used as the farmer’s living quarters. The other part consisted of stables with a huge loft in which to store fodder.

The building features a porch, the only way leading to the outer bailey, built on a basement wall. The upper floors were built using vertical wood panelling with slanting braces. The stone mantelpiece is part of the gable wall.

The farm was used as such until the 1970s.
