Château de Lihérin
The Château de Lihérin, a property featuring authentic décor
Perched on a valley hillside bordered by vast woodlands and situated in the province of Luxembourg in the commune of Gouvy, the Château de Lihérin (or Lihérain) – also known as the Château de La Laide-Fagne – is a treasured estate whose construction dates from the 17th to the 20th centuries.

An ideal choice for a wedding, family reunion, or corporate event, the Château de Lihérin has a large reception room which accommodates up to 260 people and space for 68 people to spend one or more nights in its tastefully renovated, fully-equipped rooms.
