Château de Petite Somme is located in the beautiful Belgian Ardennes, close to Durbuy. Since we bought it in 1980 we call it “Radhadesh”.
We organize daily guided tours of the castle in French, Dutch, and English, but the grounds around the castle are freely accessible every day and you will find a spiritual art gallery, a boutique, a vegetarian restaurant, and our artisan bakery. You can also take a nice walk in the woods or visit our ecological gardens.
