MORE DETAILS ABOUT LUMEN 7
At the beginning of the 20th century the Hallet-Jouret family initiated the construction of a stately house in Flobecq/Vloesberg on the site of Lumen 7. The assignment was given to an architect from Ghent, who achieved the dreams of the builder by constructing a beautiful art nouveau house on the slope of the garden. The first occupants moved into the house in 1905.
During the 20th century the house survived two world wars, new occupants, weather, wind and the test of time. In 2008 renovations took place to adapt the house to the current needs for comfort, but the stately appearance of the house was kept intact during the last century.
At present the house is for rent as a holiday resort for 14 up to 16 persons. It is a three-storey house with the ground floor holding a TV-room, a completely furnished kitchen with a pantry, veranda, toilet and a spacious living room. Once on the terrace you really get that undeniable holiday feeling.
The first floor holds four bedrooms and two bathrooms. One of the rooms has been decorated as a children’s room, but the beds are capable of handling ‘adult weight’. This ‘children’s’ room and the room with a south-side view share a bathroom with walk-in shower, toilet and sink. The two other rooms on this floor both have their own sink and share a toilet in the hallway and a bathroom with walk-in shower.
The second floor holds three bedrooms with the south-side room having its own bathroom with bath tub and a superb view from the bath tub as well as from the room. The two other rooms both have a sink and share a bathroom with a walk-in shower. The second floor also has two extra toilets.
Between the trees a small house is hidden from view. This house was also renovated and now holds a living room with a fireplace and a bedroom with a bathroom on top of the stairway. If you want to rent the house for 16 people, 2 people can occupy this house.
Situated in the beautiful hills of the Pays des Collines, at the edge of the Flemish Ardennes, you will find yourself viewing a breathtaking landscape from every corner of the house. The name of the street dates back to the days of Roman occupation. This street that now guides you through meadows and forest was once the site of Roman light beacons, hence the name ‘Lumen’. The decision to name the house Lumen 7 was quickly made.
