Star arrangement on a Limburg hillside

In the middle of the Limburg hilly country, in the neighbourhood of vineyard Fromberg and Castle Valkenburg, you can find De Leuf. This hotel-restaurant is located in a monumental farmstead from 1759 with elements as old as the hills. The characteristic hotel rooms have been designed to be modern and light, but with an entirely authentic style due to the low, beam ceilings.

The farmstead also displays an extensive present-day art collection. In the star restaurant with its young talent, you can enjoy the traditional French kitchen. Innovation and perfection comes first, so many a guest has been challenged to participate in cooking demonstrations, workshops and various taste tests. On the patio, which is covered with a roof of plane tree leaves, you can enjoy lunch or dinner in peace and quiet when the weather is nice. The surroundings are wonderful for walks, bicycle trips (for the more seasoned biker) or picnics. Upon request a well-filled picnic basket will be prepared for you.

An outing to Belgium or Germany can be arranged in no time at all. Or you can visit Carolus Thermen, Snow World or the Holland Casino in Valkenburg.
