  • Description


    The house is an old gentleman's farm. Since 2007 the house is owned by our family. Since then much has been done. But hence the size of the property and the limited sparetime our family has there is still so much to do. We came till the conclusion we can't do it alone.

    The house is located in Gunsleben. Gunsleben has 365 inhabitants and is a very small village. It is a very quiet area where you can relax. Behind the house we have a huge garden and a kitchen garden.

    Our family consists of our parents: Loes en Brand, oldest son Gerbrand and his wife Maaike and their kids Thijme and Veerle, oldest daughter Bertina and her partner Jeroen and their kid Tom, youngest daughter me, Marloes and my boyfriend Lech. We are a close family and in our holidays we try to spend as much time possible in Gunsleben. My parents are retired and spend most of their time there. You will see them the most. My mother Loes is a very
    hospitable, warm and friendly host. Her cooking skills are great! She will look after you like you belong to the family. My father is very handy and does most of the jobs around the house.
