About our home

Our house used to be the local school from 1850 up until the 1970s, then it was turned into a hotel, later it became a restaurant and in 2006 we turned it into our family home. It is fully renovated with a large garden complete with a slide, swing and a playhouse. On 450sqm you will find a spacious kitchen, the dining room and the livingroom with a fireplace on the ground floor; a bathroom with shower and bathtub on the intermediate floor. On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms with a king size bed in the masterbedroom and 3 queen size beds as well as a single bed in the other bedrooms, there is also a cot and a toddlers bed. Next to the masters bedroom is another large bathroom complete with sauna. On the second floor is the third bathroom with a shower, a study and the childrens playroom.
