Hof Van Rameyen is renowned as one of the most beautiful castles in the country, situated in the picturesque village of Gestel. The castle is set in a vast, 72-hectare landscape park that connects with surrounding woods, fields, and meadows, creating an environment where time seems to have stood still, offering serenity and tranquillity.
Despite this, the castle has been home to illustrious residents, including the second son of Pieter Paul Rubens, and various other influential noble families who contributed to the unique aura that still surrounds the ochre-coloured castle complex.
This historic site has evolved over the centuries, from a 14th-century keep to a 16th-century Renaissance castle, and the various periods are still visible today in the architecture and interior design. Between 1996 and 2001, architect Rutger Steenmeijer and interior designer Axel Vervoordt led a complete restoration of the castle and its outbuildings, with a focus on preserving the authenticity and integrity of the site.
The Hof Van Rameyen has adapted wonderfully well to the modern era, offering a total experience where living, working, and leisure are in perfect harmony.
Alongside contemporary exhibition and office spaces, the estate features leisure facilities such as a fitness centre, swimming pool, and tennis courts, with a living environment firmly grounded in the twenty-first century.
The restoration of the castle and outbuildings is an ongoing process, with periodic maintenance work carried out progressively to strengthen the property's monumental character and meet the needs of today and tomorrow in a sustainable manner. The historical value of the Hof van Rameyen lies in the diversity of styles expressed in both the castle and its outbuildings, reflecting the various architectural periods and contributing to its unique charm and allure.
Overall, Hof Van Rameyen is an extraordinary destination, combining natural beauty, architectural heritage, and modern amenities into a perfect harmony, creating a unique experience for visitors.
