Waterlily 34 Sonnevijver Rekem

The Water Lily 34 is located in the small park Sonnevijver in Rekem, on the edge of the Hoge Kempen nature reserve in Belgian Limburg. The houses are all from private owners so that the appearance of the park no 'one size fits all' is. Beautiful woodland gardens surround the property creating lots of privacy. There are no 'bells and whistles' (only nice restaurant, playground and forest lake with sandy beach ... no longer needed!) At the park making it a very quiet place ... great if you want the daily hectic routine of home escape! You feel right at home ...

The house is fully equipped for families (6 adults + 2 babies) with young children - so does 'packing-stress' obsolete! But even without children, the house is lovely by the attractive decor, spacious dining table with chairs and fireplace ..... the place to spend a weekend with friends and enjoy cooking and bubbling.

Available for children of baby monitor - inside and outdoor toys - high chairs and beds - rocking chair - buggy - lots of baking tools. A lovely garden (total plot is 800 m2) to scavenge, swing and trampoline, hammocks and a bunch of cabins, a sun terrace on the south, but also plenty of shade and a large playing field. At various places seats. In the evening delicious roast marshmallows in the fire bowl ... or enjoy a glass of wine and conversation ditto!

At a distance of approximately 200 m forest pool with lovely beach and the beach house many attributes ... When the beach is also a recently renovated playground and a restaurant. In particular, the terrace overlooking the lake is exquisite!

In 2008, we went with friends on park Sonnevijver - when only 10 homes - in order for them to buy a home ... 2 weeks later we were themselves proud owner of 34 Water Lily!
In love with the place in the forest near the lake, the rest with plenty of action in the immediate vicinity. And that less than 2 hours drive from our hometown Rotterdam!
With our three young kids we run regularly to 'the cottage in the woods "to really take each other for the time. Charged we come back, .. Blessed

Additional information

Whether you love golf, horse riding, canoeing, cycling, mountain biking, shopping, steps, eating, visiting museums, etc. ... Within 2-20 minutes to do it all ...

Within walking distance is a riding school where your child can get a lesson and a ride out on a pony can make ... even for beginners! There are also summer camps organized ... fun for your son or daughter during your summer stay in the Water Lily ... the whole day in line with the horses and good sleep at home!

Cycling can of course from the house ... 2000 km continuous cycling! Perhaps less ambitious but just as fun ... cycling in 30 minutes (mostly along water and green) you can park your bike under the Vrijthof! Bikes are available in the house ... but for long trips are available to rent from the management of the park.

From mid-November to visit them again ... the Christmas markets! Hasselt, Maastricht, Aachen and not to mention the fairytale Valkenburg! For a super Christmas spirit is to visit a market is a must ... Your child will love it and feel like being in a fairy tale!
But for a getaway for two is a lovely place in these areas. Good shops, ancient cities, nice restaurants, museums ... It has it all ...

And more ....?
