Count Ernest-John Solvay left the nation a beautiful complex at the southern edge of the Sonian forest. He is the one who transformed the property into the beautiful setting available for us today. Nature and culture come here together in an harmonious way. The Sonian Forest goes over in a landscape park with large lawns and ponds, ancient beech trees and exotic species, monuments and in the middle Solvay Castle. This can be perfectly combined with a visit to the museum of the Folon Foundation (www.fondationfolon.be).
