Perks for the Parents

This beautifully-restored farmhouse in the family-friendly region of Limburg is perfect for a large family or group of friends to get away from it all. It sleeps up to 18 plus babies. The recent renovation was done with families in mind and the house has all the baby equipment and toys to keep children happy and parents relaxed. The multi-kitchen and living areas in this property make it ideal for large groups, or those travelling with grandparents or nannies, to have their own private spaces while also being able socialize all together too.

Why Kids Love it

The mud kitchen and dedicated outdoor play areas are great for fresh-air fun and the house has toys to suit all ages, from books and board games to an Xbox and electronic perks. The farmhouse is within walking distance of the Wellen sports hall that also has an outdoor playground. The province of Limburg is very family-friendly. Check out the Bokrijk Open Air Museum with historical buildings where actors bring the past to life, and the Aqua Mundo Erperheide water park with pools and slides – both are within a short drive. The Reading Between The Lines Church nearby is a must-see and a great spot for a family photo; there are a lot of children's farms to visit nearby.

Style Notes

Modern family. The house was renovated and designed by interior stylists Thinkstyle to have an open-plan, Scandinavian appeal. Custom wooden furniture, bare brick walls and industrial-chic lighting bring this farmhouse firmly into the 21st century. Bedrooms are chic and crisp, with playful linens and monochrome typographical prints and pictures; floors are typically flagstone and ceilings are natural wood. Outside there is a huge grassy garden that's big enough for everyone to play games in. We love the polished concrete floors, the sleek, white kitchens and the chandelier above the dining table outside.
