Zalig In Antwerpen

“Zalig in Antwerpen” is a spacious holiday home in the historic part of the Belgian city on the Scheldt river. In this 150-year-old townhouse, exposed brick walls, old oak wood ceilings and original tiled floors set a contrast to floors and fixtures with a tadelakt-like coating, steel elements and natural materials.

On the ground floor, which once housed a popular “Volkscafé”, you will find the holiday home’s dining room and open kitchen. The bistro-like decor – small tables lined up next to each other, a long bench and a kitchen that looks like a bar counter – has the flair of a restaurant. The third floor living room, with a gas fireplace and built-in sofas, has a relaxed club atmosphere. The bedrooms on the first and second floors are fitted with a double bed each, as well as bunk beds dating to the original townhouse, and sleep up to four people. There is another bedroom for two people under the roof.
