Château St. Gerlach.

Hotel and restaurant in the country. Netherlands,Valkenburg aan de Geul

Unique in the world: its church with splendid 18th-century frescoes

Jan-Paul Kroese, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

The St. Gerlach Estate is tucked away in the unspoiled natural environment of the Geul Valley and the Ingendael nature reserve. With its own extensive parks, vineyard, herb garden, orchard, rose garden, and its church with splendid 18th-century frescoes , the Château’s setting is utterly delightful. The historic buildings date back to the year 1200 and were once a monastery built to accommodate pilgrims who had come to pay homage to hermit Gerlach of Houthem. The guestrooms, housed in the former farmstead, boast views of Baroque gardens. The spa and the Roman indoor swimming pool offer treatments and relaxation. The restaurant which has lost nothing of its aristocratic décor, serves fine French cuisine, while the Bistrot de Liège offers to the guests appealing dishes from the region in an informal setting.
