FLIZE, Village Fleuri "2 Fleurs"

Year of obtaining the first Flower in 2016 and the second in 2018
Flize is a commune of 1164 inhabitants, this village is nestled between Charleville-Mézières at 13km and Sedan also at 13km.
This village has a rich history which is transmitted by a rich built heritage.
The current Saint-Remi church dates from 1865: it has three naves with transept, 40 meters long by 20 wide.
A rather pretty Stations of the Cross is embossed on the wall and the organs were donated by Mme Jacob.
At a place called the "Château", confluence of the Meuse and the Elan stream, there used to be a tower or watchtower, as there were many times along the river. On its site was built a castle inhabited around 1815 by the Clermont-Tonnerre family, and whose parks were designed by Le Nostre.
In 1843, Mr. Gendarme, from Vrigne-aux-Bois, ironmaster in Boutancourt and Flize, acquired this castle – or rather this bourgeois house – and completely transformed it. When the “liquidation of the factories” took place in 1868, this castle was bought by Mrs. Jacob-Jacquemin, now deceased, who gave it its lordly appearance. It is now the property of the Arcomat company.
