Tombeek Plage & Ateliers is a new LOCATION for WORKSHOPS, EVENTS & PARTIES
The name “TOMBEEK PLAGE” was given to this place back in the 5Oties. There was a sand beach and a natural swimming pond where people from the city came to spent their time. Altough the beach (la PLAGE) and the pond are still ” in restauration” we kept the name and hope to swim here again one day. But even without beach there is still 4 acres of nature with a river running trough, pic nic spots by the river and under the apple trees, an industrial loft like “Atelier” charmingly furnished, and that only 20 min from Leuven, 30 min from Brussels and 40 from Antwerp (but on some spots you feel like in France.)
We believe in a low impact approach, we believe in reusing existing stuff like vintage and antiques, we believe in creativity, we believe in sustainability, we believe going green can be stylish and luxuriuos, when luxury means enjoying whats scarce: fresh air,space, care,time together.
The place is not over designed or pimped up, but imperfect and authentic. We believe the beauty is in the imperfection. The wild natural garden is inviting. The ‘patine’ of the place makes our guest feel relaxed the moment they enter the place. We focus on the experience of feeling, welcome at home and invited.
We feel entertaining should become again uncomplicated, and come naturaly. It is alle about the “people” who want to come together and share good moments. Altough the place is great for big festivities, it is also a great location for smaller gatherings of friends and family, private dinners, press presentations, foto shoots.
When organizing a wedding here we only rent to couples working with Sara Bogaert , excellent wedding planner who will not dictate you but guide you. (Her new website “Immer” is “under construction” )
There is enough street side parking for every guest and of course restrooms,.
Enjoy surfing around to gather information and to get inspired.
See you soon ! Anne Marie Vandeputte & Kris Goris © January 2018
