About our home

Our home is between 200 and 300 years old with the original 'fachwerk' visible in the walls. We have spent 5 years renovating the house by ourselves, most of the inside is complete. The garden is large with more than 200 lavender plants, 900 tulips and about 40 rose bushes. Parking for a car on the premises and barbeque is fine. The house has 5 available bedrooms, 2 kitchens, one bathroom and 2 wc's.
We have tried to maintain the original structure and antiquity of this old house. If you like a cosy, country house atmosphere, you will hopefully enjoy sharing the passion and hard work we have done to our home.
