Description

The Space

Imagine living in a castle right in the city center of Antwerp, Belgium.
125years ago this was build as a children's hospital and is now turned in a beautiful site conveniently located in between the Central Station and Berchem Station.

THE PLACE:
Original Gothic shaped windows and tastefully renovated rooms, hints of Asian touches, designers marble floor, stuffed with original paintings from Cisco's hand.
Private elevator from garage or hall straight into the apartment for maximum privacy and security.

LED lights will set the mood right for a romantic evening and modern appliances such as sensor light switches and dimmed lights as well as coded entry passes are all part of this luxurious get-away.

A modern black & red kitchen with American refrigerator, microwave and induction cooking plates. Senseo coffeemaker.
A cozy earth colored living room including a dining table, a comfy sofa with a large screen HDTV with full cable, multi CD player and surround system.
A large warm gas fireplace is at hand.

A huge window opens up like a harmonica to bring the sunshine in and enjoy a huge terrace with lounge area and a large wooden dining table (summer only). Cushions are available to turn it into a comfortable sitting area.

A master bedroom with en-suite balcony, allowing to open up a huge window and enjoy a comfortable lazy Sunday morning.
Enjoy a shiatsu massage in the automated chair.

At last the most spectacular part of the apartment : the private Wellness/Spa : a large relaxing room featuring a huge Buddha on the wall and a chesterfield edged comfortable bed. A large windowed Sauna allowing 3persons lying or 4 seated.
An automated massage chair giving you a great shiatsu massage all over your back and legs. A multifunctional shower, including full massage shower experience. A huge round Jacuzzi tub with Rain shower in the round Tower room.
Separate toilet.
Set the music and arrange the LED lights as to your liking and start enjoying a true moment of relaxation.

THE AREA:
Right around the corner you can rent City bikes to discover the city. Or take the convenient trams or buses that will lead you anywhere : the City center (3km), the Docks (4km), Antwerp Sportpaleis (6km), the Diamond Center (1km), Central Station (2,5km).
Make sure to visit the Fashion Museum, Diamond Museum, Art Museum, the famous MAS and so many other exhibitions.
Go to the waterfront at the 'Kaaien' , cross the 'Schelde' for a stunning view on the city. Have dinner at the Waalse or Vlaamse Kaai, make a stroll in the Antiques area, or have brunch near the Flea Market on Sundays.

Berchem is only a short stroll away, with it's famous area of grand houses that will make you dream and a trendy area called Zurenborg where artists and designers hang out for dinner & drinks.

Of course you will taste the Belgian Chocolates and the real Antwerpse Handjes (cookies).

Antwerp is the home of Fashion & Gastronomy. Nowhere in Belgium you will find more restaurants catering all tastes you can imagine. And if you wanna shop till you drop, this is the place to be. Not only does Antwerp has the most spacious outdoor shopping street (going from Central Station to the Main Market Square), but we have several smaller shops of World's famous Antwerp designers. A true bliss !

But maybe you will come for Business, Antwerp is one of the largest Ports, it has THE largest Diamond business worldwide, and as mentioned before it has a worldwide position in Fashion.

Enough said, now it's up to you to come and see for yourself. Contact me for more information, I will be most happy to answer to your questions and help you with your stay.
