Stay on a saffron farm
Belgunique Talent Linda and Marc grow and harvest saffron on their farm in de Kempen. Since their first harvest in 2012, their brand Belgische Saffraan has become famous both here, as well as abroad.
Their passion for the product grew every year, and soon the farm was there to stay.
Linda and Marc are currently still the only saffron farmers in Flanders. Not only do they offer saffron in its pure form, they also create a variety of delicacies based on this golden ingredient: Saffrocaat, saffron syrup and even saffron-based gin. You can see more of their products here.
Since earlier this year, Linda and Marc combine their saffron farm with running their Bed & Breakfast: Art.14. Guests are able to stay the night and experience the saffron farm first hand. They also participated in the Flemish TV programme 'Met Vier in Bed' earlier in the year, giving them publicity and the first enthusiastic visitors.
Art.14 is an environmentally friendly B&B. It is energy neutral. Fresh organic bread is baked in the spacious open-plan kitchen with AGA stove. Eggs come from their Campine chickens, and they grow organic vegetables and fruit in their own vegetable garden. Furthermore, they work with local (organic) farmers and producers as much as they can.
A visit to Belgische Saffraan and Art.14 is simply a must!
Linda and Marc are one of the friendliest hosts we have ever come across. Their warmth, combined with the peace of the countryside and Art.14's delicious culinary delights make this place highly worth a visit.
Belgunique offers you to buy a gift voucher for a one or two night stay at Art.14.
If you book a stay via Belgunique you also receive one free saffron breakfast as well as a Belgunique gift on arrival.
