History of this castle.
Beervelde Park, situated near the City of Ghent, in the very heart of an area famous for its horticulture, stretches out over 50 acres. The estate was designed in 1873 in what is called (at least in France and Belgium) the English Landscape style. It was intended to serve as a display for what was at the time, a young Belgian horticulture.
Ever since, Beervelde Park has been the property of the Counts de Kerchove de Denterghem.
Today, 135 years later, it is remarkable to note that the de Kerchove de Denterghem name is still linked to the promotion of horticulture.
Count André is the former chairman of the Royal Society for Agriculture and Botany, the non-profit organization which organizes the world famous 'Floralies of Ghent' every five years.
His brother, Count Renaud, is today's curator of the estate and organizer of the Beervelde's Garden Days, a fair which takes place every second weekend of May and October
The basic idea of this landscape style inherited from the romantic period of the nineteenth century is bringing together all the elements of an idealistic natural landscape on a fairly surface.
