Holiday home - Hunting lodge


Lodging in a unique location with a beautiful view on a 32-acre historic country estate.

Authentic, robust, luxurious, a lot of privacy and a beautiful view characterise this hunting lodge.
The stately spacious detached hunting lodge (140 m2) has been furnished for two persons (maximum four persons).

Given its location in the forest and at the lake the house is not suitable for families with young children.

The hunting lodge was built around 1810; the lodge was inhabited by the gamekeeper with his hunting dogs until 1899.

At the end of 2008, we began restoring and considerably enlarging the hunting lodge with respect for the past, while adding modern luxuries. The oak roof structure with wooden peg connections was reconstructed; the thick natural stone wall and the vaulted ceilings were restored.

A 14th century natural stone fireplace, probably originally from the large tower in the castle has been installed in the living room and functions as an open fireplace.
By making use of large natural stone blocks and the stone stairway of a ruin, a passageway was constructed from the sun terrace to the covered balcony.
A spacious two-floor extension has been constructed with many windows and doors resulting in a natural transition from outdoors to indoors.

The renovation was completed at the end of May 2011 and the hunting lodge is now available for rental.

On the one side of the kitchen, there is a spacious shady terrace.
At the back, there is a large wooden terrace with a roomy hot tub - the Source du Bois - that has a diameter of 185 cm.
