Find your Festive Spirit at Belgium's Chateau de Modave
The Château de Modave sits, perched on a rock, 60 metres (200 feet) above the Hoyoux river in the province of Liège, Belgium. While it is open to the public all summer long, my favourite time to visit this pretty castle is during the Christmas season.
For the holidays, the chateau invites local florists and decorators to style its period rooms. While some of the concoctions are rather outlandish (think more gold and feathers than you can shake a wand at) some are traditional and festive.
You can still explore the castle during the summer months and it's well worth a visit for the view alone. You can also explore the extensive grounds and gardens.
