My name is Aernoud Florijn. In 2002, we found this house and it was love at first sight. After a lot of renovation summers and "blood, sweat and tears" our dream become a reality. The highest and most beautiful house in the meadow perimeter.

*graag wat meer info omtrent de geschiedenis van de school.
*info map up to date houden zodat we geen nutteloze uitstappen doen.
We hebben erg genoten van het huis en de omgeving. Het is er rustig, wil je naar een levendig stadje dan moet je wel even rijden maar in en rond het huis is het goed vertoeven.
Wij hebben met kinderen en kleinkinderen 14 dagen geweldig genoten van deze ideale plek in een schitterende omgeving. Wij hadden 2 weken prachtig weer en hebben genoten van wandelen, fietsen, zwemmen in het mooi gelegen Lac de Poncheral, stadjes en markten in de omgeving bezocht, gefietst op de vélorail en veel geluierd en gelezen in de grote tuin. Het zwembad was heerlijk voor de kinderen en bood de volwassenen af en toe echte verkoeling. Vlakbij het huis is een omheind speeltuintje voor kleine kinderen. Alle voorzieningen in het huis zijn prima en het ziet er schoon en fris uit. Wij waren de eerste gasten die konden genieten van de zolderverdieping/Living Lounge die net klaar was en een ideale plek is voor een partijtje tafeltennis of luieren op de bank tijdens het kijken naar een film of gamen op het grote beamerscherm. De Living Lounge is een geweldige aanvulling in het schoolgebouw waarvan je ook bij wat minder weer erg veel plezier kunt hebben. Onze kinderen en kleinkinderen (3 en 5 jaar) en wijzelf bevelen iedereen dit historische schoolgebouw aan. Van de beschrijving op de website is geen woord gelogen. Wij geven onze vakantie en Ancienne Ecole een dikke 10.
Hartelijke groeten van: Dirk, Suzan, Esther, Mendel, Mariëlle, Duko en Levi Kuijper
