More about the B&B
-

We have been welcoming guests to our private home since 2003. First at Terhove Castle in Bommershoven, since 2011 in our beautiful mansion in Borgloon.

 

We all enjoy receiving and taking care of guests. Chiara likes to read and Sophie likes to bake cookies. You can regularly find Paul and Ingrid in the vineyard behind the house.

We bought our house in 2008. The first three years we renovated and brought the house back to its original state. We kept the furnishing rather calm and opted for a Scandinavian color palette. 

We love paintings, classical music and theater (and much more of course). We are happy to share that with you. For example, there are paintings by Limburg artists, including the twin brothers Steven and Stefan Peeters (Hasselt) and Stefaan Vermeulen (Zammelen).

The house is classically built according to the golden ratio. There is a very spacious entrance hall and all rooms are large, high and equipped with wooden floors. The great walled  garden is located on the old city walls. In the garden are nine cherry trees. Hence the name 'De Kersentuin'

The house is classified and it is assumed that the house was built in 1770. We ourselves think that the house is a little less old, dating from about 1810. The classification also assumed that it is a Canon House. A canon is a cleric who is a member of a chapter or other important church. A canon usually lives in a canon's house in the vicinity of the spiritual institution to which he is attached. There are several Canon Houses in Borgloon.  ​

We would like to welcome you to De Kersentuin and do everything we can to ensure that you have a good time in our B&B.

Paul & Ingrid, Chiara & Sophie
