The Annex Retreat

Geijsteren, NL
A Dutch Farmhouse Villa is Transformed into a Culinary Retreat

We love a vacation rental with a strong culinary component, and in this case we found a magical place where the owners prioritized gastronomy holistically with the environment.

The Annex Retreat

Owner Dita, a trained chef and sommelier, found a former living farm owned by a Dutch family while searching with her husband two years ago. Located on over 14,000 square meters in the south of the Netherlands, they were captivated by its instant serenity. As they stood through the shade of a 200-year old Sweet Chestnut tree, they knew it was meant to be theirs. 

The couple took great care to update the villa, respecting its original character (think soaring oak ceilings and libraries with books that date to 1750) while adding a few contemporary upgrades such as mid-century modern decor and furnishings from top Dutch design houses.

Come spend some time lavished in luxury. As an add-on service, breakfast, lunch and dinner can be included, and you can have Dita select wines and stock them for you prior to arrival. The trained team of chefs – comprised of both rising stars and Michelin-starred – are delighted to prepare exquisite menus and sometimes surprise guests with evening aperitifs.

The property can accommodate up to 12 guests, with six bedrooms and six bathrooms. Most rooms have farmland and pool views.

For a true locavore experience in the middle of nature, we think Dita says it best: “The Annex is created as a home away from home, approachably opulent, joyous, peaceful, relaxing, nurturing and above all memorable.”

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Heated pool, open wood-burning fireplace, Chef’s kitchen with large island, Sonos® speakers for high-quality sound, Kamado Joe XL BBQ. Breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared to perfection by prestigious chefs, featuring local produce, honey, juices, jams, eggs, meat and more (at an additional cost). Curated culinary activities for guests that are interested.

A Natural Wonderland in Holland

Located between Belgium and Germany, the vast surroundings of Limberg are blanketed with forests and hills, making the area a popular destination for hiking and biking. A walking path shoulders The Annex, leading into the vast forest, beckoning a foraging trip to see what treasures you’ll unearth. A fifteen-minute walk from the Annex will take you to an 18-hole championship golf course, or you may choose to experience the rolling dunes in De Maasduinen, a 10-minute drive. Limberg is also home to the "white village" of Thorn, with a gleaming abbey that used to be a convent for noblewomen.

LOCATION

Failure to follow these additional rules will result in charges taken from your deposit. Don’t make us do that - we’re givers, not takers.
