An introduction to Tielrode

How would you describe Tielrode in a nutshell?

Tielrode is an oasis of tranquillity where you will have an unforgettable and above all a hospitable, very personal stay. It is embedded in a beautiful river landscape and situated on the site of a reinvigorated shipyard. The venue was founded by my husband, Luc Dhanis (painter) and myself, Sofie Lachaert (silversmith). When you stay with us, you can experience art in a new way by sojourning in an artwork by us as an artist duo.

The venue’s interior looks really beautiful. How would you describe the style of the interior?

It’s minimalist, as in pure, poetic, and sensible. With a keen eye for even the smallest detail, all spaces are set up in a contextual scenography. The venue is situated on the site of a reinvigorated shipyard. Tracks of the industrial past were laboriously processed in the contemporary setting it is today. This crossbreeding of the here and now with the past makes for a transcendental atmosphere.

Many of the pieces in the rooms are part of the venue’s collection and can be bought. Tell us a bit about the different artists and designers that you exhibit.

We offer our guests a unique experience amidst boundary breaking objects by ourselves and by befriended artists in a dialogue of the mundane and the sublime. The art is a mixture between design and applied art that borderlines with fine art. The artists and designers are from all over the world, an attractive mix of internationally recognised names as well as young emerging talent.

How would you like your guests to remember their stay?

As one to never forget! We believe that staying with us, is the perfect opportunity for celebrating something or someone special, enjoy time together at a leisurely pace and gain an unforgettable moment to cherish.

Tielrode rooms & rates

The building is very big (about 3500 sqm), because it used to be an old shipyard. You can stay for the night in our ‘one and only’ suite (100 sqm): a wonderful sleeping accommodation with a king size bed made up with the finest Belgian linen, a bathroom with a rainfall shower and Japanese bathtub.

Other spaces are freely accessible to guests: the workshop, a spacious living and dining / meeting area bathing in subtle northern light, with a 4m long inviting table, a shelter with a view of the wide and semi-wild garden and an impressive loft space with high windows that give a view on a 17th century chapel. Despite their large size, the rooms radiate coziness and intimacy. Guests come here to share the beauty and intimacy of the place – which is certainly guaranteed because we offer accommodation to only 1 person or 1 couple at a time.

Verfied Welcome Beyond stay
We did not stay at the property featured on Welcome Beyond. Rather, we stayed at another property owned by Luc and Sofie in Tielrode. This property is a self-catering house.

Verfied Welcome Beyond stay
We absolutely loved our stay with Sofie. The suite was more than what we expected. Excellent space for anyone who appreciates contemporary art and design. So much thought put into the space. We would go back in a heartbeat and highly recommend this stay in Tielrode.

The location of Tielrode

Tielrode is a small village, nestled in a photogenic river landscape in Flanders where the Durme meets the Schelde, ideal for walking or cycling and enjoying the tranquillity of nature. A small ferry takes you to the other side of the river for endless biking in a nature preserved area, along the embankment or through the countryside. The venue is perfectly situated within the golden triangle Antwerp-Brussels-Ghent. Nearby there’s a 'busboat' to take you to Antwerp within 20 minutes. We are within easy reach from London, Paris or other European capitals.

When is the best time to visit Flanders?

Tielrode is worth a visit throughout the year: the river landscape is stunning during all four seasons. During autumn and winter you can enjoy the tranquillity and vastness of nature, the beautiful views over the river. During the spring and summer months, everything comes to life.
