A Special Addition

Sensitively and elegantly restored to bring out this historic building’s natural character, this vacation home rental in Belgium’s city of Ghent is a well preserved example of the historic townhouses that line the cobble stone streets in the town center. 

Owned by a native of the city and restored by Rearch Architects, the three story home is famous for its bronze statue on the corner called ‘Het Breistertje’, which means ‘The Knitster.’

Originally made by French sculptor Jean-Pierre Clemençon for the 1976 exposition “Formes Humaines” at the Rodin Museum in Paris, the artist subsequently decided to build the sculpture into the facade of the house and it remains a unique part of its identity today. 

Reimagined from it’s historic roots as a light filled contemporary home, this townhouse has been given a fresh update that offers a calm and stylish refuge in the center of the city.

  • Niels, July 12, 2018

    We stayed with a group of six at Marie’s place for a weekend.
    The place is very nice, cozy and clean.
    Fresh linen and towels were provided.
    Check-in and check-out was a breeze and communication was very easy and quick.
    Marie provided us with nice tips for the beautiful city of Ghent.
    Nice squares with plenty of bars and beer cafes.
    Thanks again for everything!
