The Schalienhuis is an old farmhouse situated close to Antwerp in the lovely flat grassland of Flanders (Belgium). Hilde and Nelly have created a wonderful environment in and around their lovely home, especially for children. They own a fantastic toy shop in the center of Antwerp and bring home loads of authentic toys so that their young guests can keep busy.
Apart from their two sweet Labradors, further inhabitants include a Flemish Giant rabbit called Louis and three dwarf goats. The outside playground also includes a sand-pit and a caravan-for-playing. If it rains, you can sit by the fire in the breakfast-sitting room where many games and toys are at your disposition. It is comfortable and tasteful.
Several nice restaurants are to be found in the area and you can take the tramway to Antwerp where there is a huge Zoo and lots of museums and other stuff to do.
Nellly's breakfast merits a special mention: It is delicious and copious. Pancakes (poffertjes), eggs cooked to perfection, rubarb compote, cheese, meats, home-made jams, fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice, a variety of fresh breads... Different every day! Make sure you don't eat too much at night so you will be hungry in the morning!
