An oasis of tranquillity in the green

When first visiting this place, we felt like heaven on earth, the silence was so powerful because we could hear nature in it, a fascinating experience that resulted into the actual name of our B&B ‘Silencio’. In this noisy and ever-changing world silence is golden and we believe it should be considered a gift to treasure whenever and wherever you can.

Our premise is a cosy, welcoming country house surrounded by a large and beautifully landscaped garden which allows you to completely relax in a hidden and beneficent wonderland of trees, flowers and bushes.

Things to do and see, Kalmthout-Heide

Our B&B is situated in the idyllic small village named Heide, one of the 5 small villages belonging to Kalmthout.

We are living in a street called Canadezenlaan, a stone’s throw away from the cross-border nature reserve ' Kalmthoutse Heide'. This nature reserve is about 6000 hectares covering two countries at the same time: Belgium and the Netherlands.
Kalmthout is an important part of the so-called Northern Garden of Antwerp and a place where dozens of hiking and bike trails come together. You can easily go on a personal quest to discover the most beautiful green lanes, nature reserves and colourful heathlands.

Moreover, this area offers a wide variety of delicious bistros and restaurants allowing our guests to discover local gastronomy which is using traditional receipts and local ingredients.

Other things to discover are the Arboretum (botanical garden), the Bijenteeltmuseum (beekeeping museum), the Vroente and the Suske en Wiske – children’s museum (comic books museum).

Although being a small village, Heide has got all you need, shops and facilities, to enjoy a carefree journey.

At walking distance from our guesthouse, the Heide train station awaits you. It takes only 20 minutes by train to arrive in Antwerp Central Station, right at the heart of amazing Antwerp. This short train trip allows you to fully enjoy the beauty Antwerp has to offer.

Your hostess

During a period of reflection, in search of the true values in life; nature, space and silence became my peaceful partners in crime. I have experienced the healing power of tranquillity and space, the undeniable feeling that life is nature and nature is life. The quieter it became, the more I was able to hear. This quest for relaxation led me to the area of silence and tranquillity called the Kalmthoutse Heide and further on to our house, a place which has always given me a pleasant and warm glow.

Enter a world of peace and tranquillity; green, open, spacious and calm. Everything which stimulates you to live another life, even if it’s only for a short while.

B&B is werkelijk een pareltje in Kalmthout. Het is ideaal gelegen vlakbij de Kalmthoutse heide voor wandelingen of fietstochten (bedankt trouwens Susie en Ronald dat we jullie fietsen mochten gebruiken!). De B&B straalt van bij de aankomst een huiselijke gezelligheid uit en is piekfijn onderhouden - alles is zeer proper en alle nodige praktische zaken zijn in orde (airco aanwezig, drank op de kamer inbegrepen, goeie bedden en de kamers zijn ruim). Het ontbijt was ronduit fantastisch : zeer uitgebreide keuze en alles lekker vers (inclusief huisgemaakte fruitsla en confituur). Susie en Ronald zijn bovendien enorm in de weer om je als gast echt thuis te laten voelen. In de buurt zijn er bovendien voldoende kwaliteitsvolle eetgelegenheden (zowel brasserie voor een snelle hap tijdens fietstocht of wandeling, als betere restaurants voor een uitgebreider diner). En dat alles baadt in een zalige, verkwikkende rust. Kortom : wij hadden er een zalig lang weekend en vonden dit een absolute aanrader!
