In the heart of the Belgian Ardennes, near Durbuy, lies the fairytale castle of Petite Somme. The castle has a long history which now houses the spiritual community, Radhadesh Ardennes. The new residents have  thoroughly restored  the castle and transformed it into a true spiritual oasis where you can explore the colourful culture of the Indian traditions.

Project Details – Website

Launch date: 12 Jan 2014
Project development – phase 1: 9 months (Phase 2 and 3 are planned)

The previous site (including server) was severely hacked and lots of malware was injected. The old Drupal site was in bad shape after lack of maintenance. I became involved in this project in Dec 2012, but it took until Feb 2013 before real work could be done. The old website was a static Drupal 6.x site in 3 languages, namely Dutch, French and English.

Radhadesh was looking for a modern design with emphasis on each of its departments and the focus was visitors and tourist. And the layout should work on all screen sizes, including mobiles and tablets. Furthermore the site should be available in 3 languages. WordPress plus a multilingual plugin was selected to create & setup the website. The theme is from Studiopress.com.
