The Gilleminus a touch of history

Our house was built in the period 1892-1895 by Gustave Verbruggen, the founder of Constructiewerkhuizen Verbruggen and the inventor of the first machines in the world for processing horse and pig hair for the filling of seats. The house is part of Real Estate Flanders.

Surroundings and activities

Located at a short distance from the Schelde and the Temse bridge, you will be staying here in the heart of the land of rivers, the region around the rivers, Schelde, Durme and Rupel.

Nowhere in Flanders so many rivers come together in such a small area. The freshwater tide action creates a unique fauna and flora. The beautiful nature can be discovered on foot or by bike, on the water, and even with a hot air balloon.

The villages on both sides of the Scheldt are worth visiting. With more than enough cozy terraces and sights.
