This vacation home rental in Belgium invites you to experience authentic Flemish design in an intimate and livable space.
The historic building has undergone a contemporary restoration that also embraces the traces of a bygone era with soft, neutral shades and natural materials including handmade tiles, eco-flooring and natural lime plaster, instilling it with warmth and style.
The decor was designed with a keen eye for detail and is a fascinating blend of vintage art and contemporary design, with pieces from the famous Belgian label, Serax.
On the ground floor there is a bright living room with a cozy sitting corner and a dining area. The open kitchen is heaven for foodies, with professional grade appliances at your disposal and tableware designed by top chef Sergio Herman.
The wooden stairs climb to the spacious bedroom loft that can sleep up to four (there are two separate single beds available here) with folding screens designed by Studio Simple that divide it for more privacy and a study corner with a writing desk.
The semi-covered, white walled pebble garden and terrace is furnished by Paola Navone and is the perfect place to get in a holiday mood.
High-speed wireless internet, bed linen, bathrobes, towels and toiletries, a welcome drink (Belgian beer, soft drink, excellent coffee and a selection of teas), and the use of a barbecue grill. On request: two (regular) bicycles.
Optional services include: a well-stocked fridge, filled with seasonal, local products (adaptable to your personal preferences): €90 for two people. Two electric bicycles €30pp per day.
Nestled in the beautiful river landscape where the Durme and Schelde rivers meet, Tielrode is a picturesque village ideally situated within the golden triangle of Antwerp-Brussels-Ghent.
