In the middle of beautiful rustic surroundings, on the edge of the fashionable city of Hasselt, Raf Ballet and his partner Thierry Didden welcome you to Bloonwinning, a luxurious Bed & Breakfast, situated in a 19th-century farm building. “If you are looking for extra comfort and opulence, you will find it here.” The farm has been in the family for four generations. “It used to be a functioning farm with animals. I am the first that didn’t continue that tradition. In 2009 we converted parts of the building into six rooms for guests to stay,” explains Ballet. “But there are still some cows around.”
