Welcome to the new website of Eremyten Hof!
Eremyten Hof, a place where you can feel at home. Whether you're coming for just one night or for a whole month, in a Hawaiian shirt or for work: you are very welcome here. We like to open up this place for work and pleasure, and in the near future we will also be working on co-working, meeting, and training infrastructure. So be sure to keep an eye on our updates!
This property exudes history. The main building dates back to 1798 in its original state, and the centuries-old beech trees have probably been standing there just as long. On the upper floors of the main building and the coach house, we have a total of 7 guest rooms. In our living room, we are happy to make room for a cozy meeting in a homely atmosphere, a live stream of a round table discussion, training for a limited group of people, a conversation evening by the fireplace, ... each time in a discreet setting and in a pleasant, familiar setting, just as we like it ourselves.
Expect cozy, spacious rooms in a rustic style, but with a good 21st century Wi-Fi connection. From every room, you have a view of the spacious park garden or the tranquil pond. Nature and comfort come together perfectly here. Those who want to chill in the patio, read a book in the sitting area, have a drink in the courtyard during their stay,... of course, we would say, this place asks for nothing more.
Those who wish to do so can take a walk in the park garden during their stay. It will be hard to go unnoticed, as we have a group of (friendly) geese keeping an eye out. Feel the forest floor under your feet and enjoy the scent of thick-trunked beech, oak, chestnut, and acacia trees. If you're lucky, you'll see the beekeeper in action at one of our beehives. The honey we serve at breakfast in the morning is truly "local".
EREMYTEN HOF is an estate of approximately 18,000 m2 located in the rural town of Evergem, just 4 km from the center of Ghent. The current building dates back to the end of the 18th century, but a portion of the house is likely 150 years older. The "Eremyt" in the name EREMYTEN HOF refers to old Dutch and means hermit-monk.
The park is a beautiful example of a landscape garden with a large pond and trees over 150 years old. The building has been completely renovated without forgetting modern comfort. From several rooms, you have a stunning view of the garden.
We have a spacious and discreet parking area, as well as easy connections to both train, tram, and bus. Tram line number 1 is within walking distance and takes you to the center of Ghent. In less than 5 minutes, you can reach the R4 by car, from where you can connect to the E17 or E40.
Each room has its own bathroom and toilet, television, and a good internet connection. Breakfast is served in the coach house. For lunch or dinner, we are happy to recommend one of the surrounding restaurants; most of them are within walking distance.
