Villa Vredehoek

Ellecom, Netherlands

For many years, Monica and her husband dreamed about opening a B&B, but it wasn't until they had the opportunity to buy this beautiful belle-epoque house that they were able to make their dream come true. Having studied hotel management, she knew what she was letting herself in for! Both Monica and her husband love meeting their guests and making them feel at ease. The Villa Vrehoek has had quite a makeover. The guest bedrooms are filled with daylight and have touches of colour that are repeated in the modern bathrooms, while retaining the original Jugendstil and Art Deco features. Breakfast is served in the dining room and its walk-through verandah, with an old hairdresser's cabinet serving as a sideboard. On the first floor is a charming guest suite, comprising bedroom, lounge and kitchenette. On the second floor are three guest bedrooms with private bathroom. Your host is a bit of a wine buff and will happily invite you to join him for a wine-tasting. Ellecom is a delightful spot for nature lovers, close to the Posbank nature reserve and the Hoge Veluwe nature park.

La Trouvaille

Waimes (Thirimont ), Belgium

This farm with rough-cast stone walls in the traditional Malmédy style has been delightfully restored by these two young gentlemen who moved here from the Netherlands. They have converted the former stables into an elegant dining room with stone walls and a schist-stone flagged floor. Breakfast is served in beautiful English crockery on stylish furniture. Next door is a large lounge with a grand piano and a verandah, which overlooks the woods and fields. The wrought-iron furniture, old bench and round fireplace in the centre of the room give it lots of atmosphere. Upstairs are four large guest rooms with sleeping alcoves or a mezzanine floor, making them suitable for up to four guests. The larger fifth bedroom is in the attic. All the rooms are beautifully decorated and have en-suite bathrooms. A very nice spot, but you should note that a minimum two-night, half-board stay is compulsary at weekends.

Het Brouwershuis

Watou, Belgium

In the midst of the hop-fields, this large, elegant, creeper-covered villa is hidden behind a high wall, next to the still-active Saint-Bernardus brewery. From the courtyard with its square of potted trees, the tennis court and white summer-house can be glimpsed. Guests have access to the entire house, whose reception rooms are well-proportioned, bathed in daylight and furnished with antiques and a huge bookcase. A generous and varied buffet breakfast is served in the winter garden. The five guest bedrooms are on the first and second floors of the main house, each decorated in its own colour with different furniture that gives them their own characters. Three new, large, beautifully-decorated and very comfortable guest rooms have recently been fitted out in a separate wing of the house, overlooking a terrace. Jackie Cockheyt will welcome you and make sure that you have an enjoyable stay. A beautiful place especially for beer-lovers, hikers, cyclists or battlefield visitors.
