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 friendly spacious hunting lodge (107 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.

With respect for the past, we have significantly enlarged the hunting lodge and added contemporary luxury. 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.

From both the hunting lodge and the surrounding grounds, the view alternates between the lake, the castle, the large foreland and the forest.

First Floor

Because the large window at the front is low, there is a beautiful view of the estate.
Two oval Burgundy windows (oeuils de boeufs) complete the view of the castle and our lake.

Luxurious bathroom with spacious shower, double natural stone sink, separate toilet and underfloor heating.

On the first floor there is also a lovely roofed balcony facing south with a view of the lake.
