"Hofje van Bieduinen"
- SQM 280
Welkom bij ons thuis. Welcome to our home. Karibu Nyumbani. Kalosorisate sto spíti. Bienvenue chez nous.
It is a 'home' full of memories of our grandparents, our families and of course our "homes away from home".
After forester Piet and his wife had lived their entire life in this house, Joep went to live here with his family more than 20 years ago. Now at a different stage in life, we roam to our "homes away from home" for family visits and work. Rest and relaxation always bring us back to this special place.
The house is part of the family Estate Bieduinen. We are very happy with our neighbors, staying in the large country house "Bieduinenhof", they are a living-working community called "Titurel" and home for people with autism. In addition, Joep is working the estate -with the "new forester" Anton- in their own way of integrated forestry, nowadays called an innovative approach, working with nature to make the forest a healthy ecosystem for people, animals and plants.
The sophisticated search for balance between integrated ecological forest management and production forest has yielded a beautiful environment with the presence of rare animals and birds (in and) around the house. You can see the Honey Buzzard, Hawk and various species of rare bats floating among the trees. A little further on, one of the very rare pairs of Black Woodpeckers nestles. If you sleep in "Het Kantoortje"; Don't be scared; the tree marten happily skips over the roof at night. With a little luck - and peace around the house - you can see young deer grazing in the garden! The very early risers, awakened by a concert of birds, can see even foxes roaming.
Do you have less need to work with bird guides? Walking or biking for miles in and around the cross-border National Parc, dining in Antwerp, shopping in Rosada outlet, swimming in Hoogerheide, or just relaxing in the garden, lighting a fire on the terrace and having a delicious BBQ is more than possible!
Welcome and we look forward to hearing from you!
