Communicate with the trees…
A call to our natural instincts…
Have you ever thought of how much we may be blinded or deafened in front of the scale of Mother Nature? Ferage is the ideal place to get in touch with your natural side that you may tend to hide in hectic city life.
See the incredible trees of Belgium
A linden tree, several centuries old, spreads and reigns over Ferage square just in front of "La Source de Manon". A few hundred meters from the lodge, the park around Ferage Castle contains an 800 year-old oak tree.
Listen to the deer call…
Mating season…  
Around twenty years ago, some deer were reintroduced into the nearby forestland. To call the female deer (the males are surrounded by several females), they perform their mating calls. 
This event is a must-hear.
 However, this mating season is rather short: around the 5th to the 27th of September.
