On our farm (dated 1788) we converted a non-adjacent barn to an ecologically comfortable "tiny-house" with all amenities, such as kitchen, stone-stove, bathroom with toilet and rain shower. Three large windows and 2 roof-windows get sunlight in the room all day long. There is a covered terrace with beautiful views of our garden and orchard. A few other terraces are spread over the garden and orchard. It is a very quiet and beautifully located cottage. Ideal for 1 or 2 persons.


The tiny-house, as we call it, was an old barn dated 1788 which we turned into a guesthouse with respect to the old structure and special features.
The cottage has been renovated and insulated with ecological materials, and the walls have hidden sound panels, because the space is actually a semi-professional sound studio.
It is located in the middle of our garden of 1 hectare, on top of a hill of the Flemish Ardennes, over-viewing the small village of Munkzwalm. The Finish soap-stove (for wood) dominates the living space and is ideal during the winter months to relax around the stove, and to bake a pizza in the oven. The bathroom with toilet, sink and rain-shower is separated from the living room with a sliding door. All together, the space is only 40 m2 but very comfortable for 1 or 2 persons.
Adjacent to the tiny-house is a covered terrace, and 20 meters further an open terrace to watch the sunset or to have a campfire. A pick-nick table stands in the orchard (40 fruit trees) where you can freely walk around and serve yourself of fruit according to the season: nuts, cherries, pears, plums, apples and quivers.
Two large roof windows and the 3 large windows in the living space bring light and color into the cottage. The windows give view to the garden and orchard. The place breaths peace and serenity.

House regulations:
Smoking only allowed on the covered and open terraces
Pets not allowed

Other practical info:
Breakfast is not served, but coffee and tea are available free of charge; Water kettle and coffee machine are available.
The sofa is a bed for 1 person, but can easily be pulled out to make a double bed (see pictures); good quality mattresses ensure a comfortable night. So far, all our guests said that they slept well!
One can sleep in complete darkness: the darkening curtains of the roof windows are operated by remote control; and the 3 windows have blackout curtains.
Sheets and blankets are available; Also towels for bathroom and kitchen;
The fridge is a (soundless) electrolux camping box;
Hair dryer and plenty of cooking utensils (pots and pans) are available;

No WiFi (no radiation) present, but internet cables (to be plugged into the wall) to connect to the internet are available; there are 2 internet connection plugs in the house and 1 on the terrace for outside internet.

A few company games are available (card game, chess, dams, scrabble); Cub-game is also available and easily be played just in front of the house.

Hiking maps and information leaflets about the interesting area are available;

Parking-space for a car is next to the cottage; Bicycles can be parked in the garage next to the tiny-house.

Доступно гостям

You, our guests, have (of course) access to the room, and access to the garage for stalling bicycles. You can freely walk, jog or take sunbaths in the garden and orchard. Due to its location and the vegetation there is a lot of privacy at the tiny house. You have your own space and garden.
You can use the chairs and tables on the terraces, in the garden and in the orchard, and put them where you want (in the sun or shade).
The host lives in the main farmhouse at 30 meters from the Tiny-house and we respect fully the privacy of our guests.

Общение с гостями

There is almost always someone at home in the main farmhouse, and thus our guests are welcome to knock our door for info or for whatever reason.

Другие важные подробности

The tiny-house is located in the middle of the large garden of the owners. To find the house for the first time it is always a bit of a nice adventure.

IMPORTANT: If you indicate the address on your GPS (Krekelstraat 5 in Munkzwalm), you actually are directed to the main farm-house (where the owners live) but the tiny-house (where you will stay) has its own private entrance and to reach that you need to drive a few 100 meters extra. Thus, after the GPS says "destination reached" you should continue driving on the cement road uphill for 100 meters and then turn left; that road (with at your left a green hedge) is confusingly also called Krekelstraat. Drive on that road for 200 meters and you will see at your left the entrance to the garden and the tiny-house. The gate remains ALWAYS open, day and night. See the 3 pictures showing the road and the entrance gate.

A perfect home for a short or long stay. Secluded yet walking distance to shops and pubs. A great location for hiking and relaxing. We did not have a car or bikes bur found it easy to use the trains to get there from Brussels. Johan had great communication to keep things simple :) Highly recommended!

Jo en Kaat zijn fantastische gastheren. Bij ontvangst word je ontzettend gastvrij verwelkomt. Met een grote enthousiaste glimlach krijg je een duidelijke rondleiding in het huisje. Het is klein, maar enorm geriefelijk met een prachtig zicht op een mooie oude boomgaard. Alles wat je nodig hebt is ter beschikking en de gastheren staan open voor elke vraag. Bij Lieven heb je een heerlijk verblijf, zowel om even te overnachten als voor een langer verblijf in een prachtige omgeving. Alle winkels en horecamogelijkheden zijn op korte wandelafstand aanwezig met prachtige panorama-zichten onderweg. Een heel fijne ervaring.

Un havre de paix au milieu dans beau verger entretenu avec amour.Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'accueil et la disponibilité discrète de notre hôte. Le studio est très bien aménagé et equipé,et la terrasse permet de diner dehors aux beaux jours. C'est un bon point de départ pour visiter la région et les villes animées de Gand et de Bruges et revenir passer une nuit paisible. Tout est prévu pour faciliter notre séjour.Vous pouvez rejoindre Gand en train (attention garez bien votre voiture sur le parking prévu à cet effet qui se trouve de l'autre côté des rails ) et aller à pieds jusqu'au centre ville en longeant la Lys, c'est une très agréable promenade.

Ons verblijf bij Johan en Kaat was super. Al van bij de aankomst voel je de gastvrijheid en de het warm onthaal. Alles wordt haarfijn en met enthousiasme uitgelegd. Je voelt je onmiddellijk thuis, de basis voor een geslaagd verblijf. Het huisje is verzorgd en netjes, alles wat je nodig hebt voor een aangenaam verblijf is aanwezig. Bedankt Johan en Kaat

Met mijn zoon van negen heerlijk genoten. Wat een alleraardigst plekje... Comfort, gezelligheid, gastvrijheid, wandelmogelijkheid (vogels, kruiden, een trampoline,...): alles was daar! Dank jullie, Jo en Kaat!

This is a property we'll definitely return to when next in the area, which will hopefully be soon. Stylish, clean, comfortable with large garden for breakfast or drinks outside. We were travelling back to the UK so only had a night but would have extended our stay if we'd been able. Short walk to the station for the trains to Gent (via 1 stop) but we could have easily driven except for the fact that we'd done so much driving over the previous couple of weeks. The hosts suggested visiting Ypres (Ieper) on our way to the ferry - good suggestion and fascinating place. Hosts were very friendly and keen to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Thoroughly recommended.
