The Land house

The smoke free land house is renovated in local country style, and is part of an old farm site dating from the beginning of last century. It is surrounded by agricultural land.

The large garden ends in a nature area with a 17th century watermill; known as de Vanderlindens molen. In the center of our garden, a majestic nut tree tells from long forgotten years.

The Rooms

At the attic, we created 2 spacious guest rooms, ensuite and non-smoking.
The rooms are equipped with a double bed and a living room, each offering place for two to four persons.
The sofa can be converted to double bed, or we can add a third bed or cradle.
Each room has independently controlled heating, the modern bathrooms have a shower.


In the morning, a nice, healthy (and where available biological) breakfast is awaiting you. If the weather permits, we serve you outside.

Hiking and Biking

You want to hike, bike or just enjoy the scenery ? Touristic maps and information are at your disposal.

The Neighborhood

Have you visited the region of the river Zwalm ?
You can enjoy the hills and valleys, fields and woods, hear the creeks and rivers.
Discover the past of the seven watermills.
Drive through the small villages with their typical squares...
Enjoy the many local recipes and drinks. All of this in the quiet and cozy area of the Zwalm.
You are our most welcome guest.

The Watermills

The watermills are witnesses of our hand-made and industrial archeology.  Zwalm can rightfully be proud with its seven watermills, of which four on the river Zwalm itself. You will be fascinated by tumbling water, the endless whispering and movement, by the mystery of its complex mechanics. Behind our garden, you'll find the  'Vanderlindensmolen' on the river 'Peerdestokbeek', hidden in the brush. It once served as laundry mill and cotton bleaching.
