But unfortunately he can no longer tell his story… Achiel Trompet died in 2013. This extraordinary holiday residence bears his name, because it was his life work. A passionate collector of antiques, he went on the hunt for construction materials from churches, monasteries, abbeys, rectories, etc., to build a house in the same way as you would put together a jigsaw puzzle.

About the neighborhood
As well as staying just a stone’s throw from Leuven, a pretty university town with a historic centre full of authentic cafés – Leuven is the beer capital of the world by the way – and traditional restaurants, you can quickly get to Brussels, our beautiful capital city, as well as the historic town of Mechelen and the port of Antwerp, each located less than an hour’s drive away.With excellent road connection and nearby public transport hubs, Trumpet House is an ideal place to start your journey. Although situated in a quiet valley, the house is extraordinarily close to many of Belgium’s historical landmarks, shopping & business centers, festivals and other attractions.
Getting around
Our property is located in a haven of greenery at the top of a hill. Escapism and intimacy guaranteed! Sufficiently remote from the other houses, Trumpet House is perfect for a peaceful stay. The region is ideal for forest walks. You will love the numerous paths and cycle tracks. Mountain bikers will also enjoy braving the numerous slopes in this undulating landscape.
