Salon des Lumières

French in Mons

Walk aesthetically and gastronomically into history at this 18th-century château located 8km north of Mons. Lit by chandeliers and flickering candles, the Age of the Enlightenment lives on in film set–style perfection, complete with costumed hosts and beautifully set tables (porcelain, fine crystal). Food-wise, the idea is to use field herbs and flowers to create the flavours of those ages.

Reserve two weeks in advance. On Sundays there are occasional theatrical interludes.
