This week I celebrated my 27th birthday. Whiehoew!
First of all, I want to thank everyone for all the heartwarming birthday wishes. It felt really great to read all your messages of support and encouragement.
Together with my parents and sister, I enjoyed an exquisite dinner and restful night at Hoeve Roosbeek in Zepperen, Belgium. A little birthday treat 🙂
The farmstead looked so charming and inviting. Via a little courtyard you could find your way to the reception desk, breakfast room and restaurant. After a warm welcome we were shown to our rooms, located in an outbuilding, with a view of the farmstead and a pen where animals were merrily running around. Inside, the rooms were decorated with cottage-style furniture and earthy tones, giving the space a warm and homey feeling. The picture was complete. I loved it! And the bed looked so inviting I quickly settled back against the pillows with a good book. Hmmm, heavenly.
Getting ready for dinner was another delight. The little bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body lotion on the sink, made showering a true pleasure. The smells of eucalyptus and Argan oil filling the bathroom made me feel refreshed and relaxed at the same time.
The next highlight of our stay was dinner at restaurant Cuisine au Four. After enjoying a nice apple beer from the region in the lounge, we were seated in the restaurant near the wood-burning oven where the chef prepared the dishes. Six delicious courses with matching wines later, we left the restaurant happy and a little tipsy 🙂
After a good night’s sleep and a hearty breakfast, we had to leave for home again. Unfortunately we did not find the time to discover the wellness area of the B&B or go cruising around the area on a Vespa. Definitely a reason to go back 😉
I had a truly wonderful birthday; quality time with my family and a little escape from reality 🙂
