VONECHE

The chateau of Voneche was built for Aimé Gabriel d'Artigue who was the founder of the crystal factory in the area. The company that was founded in 1802 became quickly succesful and in 1810 it had more than 600 specialized craftsmen working in the plant. When Belgium became independent in 1830 they lost a big part of their market and the company went bankrupt. The castle is since the late 19th century property of the Huart family. It is private property but can be viewed from the public road and sometimes their are events organized in the castle
