  • Description


    Hi, We are a family of five living in the beautiful small hills of Pays des Collines in Belgium. You have two parents and 3 children aged 7,13 and 19. We live on a farm were we have a lot of projects and many ideas to make this place a beautiful paradise in the midst of our little country. Projects to come are renovation of an old stable with old bread oven as a little home for our guests, building stables for the sheep and searching for of gridd solutions for rainwater recovery for our foodforest (future) in combo with the creation of a natural swimming pound without electricity. We are thinking about wind.... We try to do everything 100% naturally with 100% respect for our environment en biodiversity. Another big time consuming issue is our love for climbing. Both on rock and indoor. Our son is a competition climber and this is a huge timeconsuming hobby. While our farm is in the agricultural environment, all of the old and beautiful cities of Belgium are nearby and the train can take you anywhere you want. We have horses, sheep, chickens a rabbit, cat and a dog.

    We live in the French speaking part of Belgium but we are a Dutch speaking family. So if you are interested in languages here are many in just one place. Our farm is in a quiet little village 'Oeudeghien' in natural park 'Pays des Collines'. But the trainstation is just 15 minutes away. You can visit all the cities in Belgium and still return to a calm environment. We have medieval fests in the region/circus festivals/ ... . You could become the next Adam Ondra if you are into climbing :)

  • Hébergement


    For the moment guests stay in our caravan. There is cooking facility a refrigerator electricity and even heating for wintertime. The shower and toilet are in a separate stable. In summer time we have some vegetables in our vegetable garden for cooking if we need more we go to the farm of friends for more. The eating and cooking is a bit creative as we are quit busy people. Something we can eat together sometimes you will have to cook yourself. I think it's quit important to be an independent person when coming here to stay with us. But everything is discutabel.
    We cook bio, veggie, normal, glutenfree, .... creative cooking!
