CnP: What's your strongest emotion linked with the castle?
HdLB: It is hard to say. But you know we have in 2017, the Touristic Association of the Village of Celles and me, more than 200 years after its demise, decided to revive what is called"La Compagnie de la Terre de Celles" [the Compagnie is a form of a private army whose responsibility wasto defend the inhabitants of the Barony and their assets].
It was rathermoving to see menof the village in uniforms with flags marching up to the courtyard of the castle and to hear the inspiring music. Such a review in the courtyard of the Castle occurs once a year. As the Commander of the "Compagnie" I am always pleased to receive the troopers and their families for a cocktail party in the castle afterwards.
Needless to say, "La Compagnie" has many other various opportunities in between the village festivities to meet during the year.
CnP: What's your favorite part of the castle?
HdLB: It is probably the first floor which is beautifully redecorated by my wife, Countess Angèle, and of course the Arms Room is fantastic!
