The story of a nostalgic old farmhouse turned into a luxurious and charming bed and breakfast near Brussels in Belgium
Formerly a farmhouse built in 1841 and inhabited by monks, the B&B has been completely renovated and modernized to open its doors in early 2019. The modernity of the B&B contrasts with the nostalgia of the barn and its cobbled courtyard overlooked by a small chapel. Built in 1637, the baroque style chapel of Amelgem is open to the public, but you can only access it by asking the key to the guest house manager. In the small village of Meise, which overlooks the city of Brussels in the distance, you should not miss the famous botanical garden, also called "plantentuin Meise".
The guesthouse also offers generous space for business meetings, including the renovated barn of the farmhouse. With its unique character and location, just 25 minutes drive from Brussels and close to the Brussels exhibition center, Amelhof proposes a great alternative to visit Brussels and its surrounding.
During our visit, we also discover a newly equipped gym attached to a spa built by "Relex" as well as a relaxation room with infrared light and himalayan stones. To access it, you will need to privatize it for a minimum of 2 hours for the price of 80 euros for two people. One can find a nice offer of quality beauty products (Marie Stella Maris) and various candles (conscious bougies, veni vidi vici), preferably of Belgian origin. Electric bicycles are also available to ride around this beautiful countryside.
