Overview

About the property

Holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, (Sleeps 5)

The Giant of Horebeke is a restored windmill from 1816 in the heart of the hilly Flemish Ardennes. The interior is sober and soothing but with all modern amenities and a well equipped kitchen. The restoration was possible using ecological and sustainable materialen.De organic cotton duvets are filled with Alpaca wool. This contains no lanolin so no chance of dust mites. This makes them suitable for people with allergies and astma.De mill has a garden of 13 a, fully shielded with a haag.Er is a terrace with BBQ.In rural Horebeke is no industry. The region is known for its panoramic vistas, rolling meadows, some wind and water mills but also by the Geuzenhoek (Korsele) with its Protestant community and the old cemetery. Protected weeping beech 150 years old with a 5 m radius and a plaque William I. are worth a stroll waard.De teacher's house was the birthplace of Abraham Hans, Protestant poet - journalist - writer and is now museum.Oudenaarde is near (City Hall, MOU, Museum Tour of Flanders). Nearby there are several hiking trails (Burreken, A.Hanspad ....). The cycling fans will be familiar with the area of \u200b\u200bThe Tour of Flanders. Bikes can be provided.

A unique experience

  • 3 of 5

This 200-year-old windmill stands next to a working farm in the Belgian countryside, strategically convenient for day trips to Brugges, Ghent and Brussels. The spacious grounds are nicely planted by Diane, the owner.. Inside is a mix of up-to-date furniture and antique accessories amidst the original mill workings.

One word of caution; the sole bathroom is at ground level and the steps up to the second floor bedroom are awfully steep. Climbing the ladder to the bunk beds on the third level is nearly straight up. So, if you don't have an iron bladder and don't want to risk breaking your neck at 2 a.m., bring your own chamber pot!

We stayed in the mill for 3 weeks and had a wonderful time. The owner Diana was just gorgeous and ever so helpful! The mill was clean and tidy and the grounds were very well kept. It was very quiet and extremely private. The only downsize was the dog next door but my sons soon became very friendly with her so in the end it was not an issue. I would recommend the mill to friends and family for sure.

Leuke, relaxte en bijzondere plek

  • 5 of 5

Erg leuk om te verblijven in zo'n bijzonder gebouw. Binnen is alles aanwezig en in prima staat. Goeie bedden, prima sanitair en keuken en een geweldige tuin bij mooi weer. Een hele fijne ontvangst met veel extra info over de streek. Houd er rekening mee dat verblijf in deze prachtige molen niet goed mogelijk is voor mensen met een lichamelijke beperking

Mal was Anderes

  • 4 of 5

Ein Woche in einer 200 Jahre alten Windmühle ist schon etwas besonderes. Die Einrichtung ist teilweise liebevoll ausgesucht, teilweise modern und praktisch. Nur an die steilen Treppen muss man sich gewöhnen, für Menschen größer 1,80m heißt es Kopf einziehen.

Der Zustand der Wohung war gut. Einige kleinere Probleme (die allerdings wenig gestört haben) haben wir der Vermieterin mitgeteilt.

Dazu ein großer Garten, in dem wir auch die heruntergefallenen Nüsse sammeln durften.

Die Gegend ist eher ruhig und ländlich, aber Radfahrer kommen voll auf ihre Kosten.

Mit der Vermieterin haben wir in Englisch per Email kommuniziert, da sie weiter entfernt beruflich zu tun hatte. So konnten wir die offenen Fragen klären, wenn auch mit etwas Verzug.
