You would expect a B&B like the opus35 to be in a big city rather than the quiet Belgian town of Montzen. Hidden behind the walls of an old brick house you find a unique mix of modern architecture, minimalist guest rooms, as well as art and design pieces. On the ground floor the interconnected communal areas (lounge, dining area and kitchen) offer interesting perspectives as the room partially features a double height ceiling. The five guest rooms located on the upper floors are not just simple bedrooms, but small wellness temples with free-standing bathtubs and extraordinary showers. Polished concrete floors, wooden accents, a reduced color palette and fine linens create a casual/elegant ambiance.
What to do
Hiking, cycling (around the dam in Eupen and Gileppe, in the High Fens), trips to South Limburgor to Monschau, golf, the thermal baths of Spa, shopping in Lüttchand Hasselt, various international events in the region (the CHIO World Equestrian Festival in Aachen, the TEFAF art fair in Maastricht and the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Francorchamps).
Why we like this house
The merger of architecture, interior design and art.
