Welcome to De Vrijboom

Annual Leave from July 29 to August 12

We welcome you to our boutique hotel, located in the idyllic village of Nokere at the edge of the Flemish Ardennes. The name Vrijboom refers to the Lime tree on the village square of Nokere. This used to be the meeting place for the villagers. De Vrijboom was founded in  2019. The former chicken slaughterhouse has been converted into a luxurious boutique hotel.

De Vrijboom has 4 elegantly decorated rooms each with their own story and soul and where you can enjoy a cosy quiet homely atmosphere. Rooms for hire from Monday to Friday.

The party room ‘Flieflatter’, its mezzanine lounge, the cafe ‘Weitie’ and the courtyard are the perfect location for many private or corporate events. These rooms are named after birds and butterflies in the local dialect.

Contact us for more information, we would love to meet you.

Petra and Jessica.
