Since 2019, VELPE55 is a ‘home away from home’ for a weekend with friends and family. Our first idea: “Let’s give our readers 55 reasons why VELPE55 should be on their go-to list!” But that was slightly too ambitious…and you would probably already book your stay after number 3 on the list. So we took it down to the top 5 reasons why we were swept away by this cozy holiday home in the beautiful Hageland region. Prepare to be dazzled!
1) Design, design, design!
We love the sleek, modern design. Lovely architecture with an eye for detail.
2) “I just need some peace and quiet!”
is probably one of my most-used lines after a busy work week. You will find an abundance of peace and quiet in VELPE55: it’s located in the middle of nature at the end of a peaceful dead-end street. Turn off your phone and enjoy the great views of the surrounding Hageland.
3) “VELPE55 offers you the charm of the countryside and is close to attractive cities!”
according to founders Wout Devijver and Ilse Desmedt. With Leuven, Brussels and Mechelen only a stone’s throw away, we couldn’t agree more.
4) If you’re into hiking and cycling
the Hageland region is right up your street. With plenty of cycling and walking routes, it’s an ideal base. For cyclists, VELPE55 offers a covered and safe bicycle storage.
5) A perfect way to end your day
is the outside terrace with panoramic views. Snuggle up in a blanket in the winter or light up the barbecue in the summer: just relax and enjoy!
