The castle "Hof Van Rameyen" is generally considered to be one of the most beautiful castles in our country. It is situated in the picturesque village of Gestel, in a 72-hectare large landscape park that connects to woods, fields and meadows. It seems like an environment where time has stood still. Or at least where time no longer plays a significant role, because of the silence and tranquillity. Yet, it is also a place where for many centuries a special dynamic was present. The Hof Van Rameyen has had illustrious residents, such as the second son of Pieter Paul Rubens and other powerful noble families. They all contributed in their own way to the unique aura that still surrounds the ochre-coloured castle complex.

LIVING AND WORKING IN PERFECT HARMONY

Although the romance of the Middle Ages can still be felt everywhere, the Hof Van Rameyen has adapted wonderfully well to the present time. The domain offers a total experience in which living, working and leisure are in perfect harmony. You will find a living environment with both feet firmly planted in the twenty-first century, including exhibition and office spaces, and leisure facilities such as a fitness centre, swimming pool and tennis courts.

MODERN ODE TO HISTORY AND HERITAGE VALUE

The Rameyen Court evolved from a fourteenth-century keep to a sixteenth-century Renaissance castle. The various periods are still tangible today in the architecture and interior. Between 1996 and 2001, the castle and its outbuildings were completely
Between 1996 and 2001, the castle and outbuildings were completely restored by architect Rutger Steenmeijer and interior designer Axel Vervoordt. An important aspect in this was to preserve the integrity and authenticity of the site as much as possible. Of course, the restoration period up until 2001 is not the end of the revaluation of the castle. The fact that the Rameyen Court is still in good health has to do with the fact that maintenance work is carried out periodically and progressively. In this way, the aim is not only to permanently strengthen the monumental character, but also to 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 that today is beautifully expressed in both the castle and its outbuildings.
